I really don’t consider myself to be a conventional Hollywood star. I’ve never really been marketed by the big studios to do mass market box office films.
Laura Dern
I am not a Hollywood Jew and I won’t ever be one.
Jean-Marie Messier
You know, I had my mother and my father convincing me that he would be going back to Hollywood and he’d be back with the actresses and dating them and that he wasn’t serious about me at all. So I had him saying one thing to me and my parents telling me something else.
Priscilla Presley
I was a West Hollywood and Laurel Canyon girl for years, and it was so central that I felt like we’d moved to Portland when we came to Malibu, but now I can’t imagine living anywhere else. We have the best of all worlds, hilltop living, 15 minutes from town, with the beach at the bottom of the road.
Sonya Walger
I was offered a free villa in Hollywood, but I said no thank you, I prefer to live in Italy.
Ennio Morricone
I love New York City. Everyone is busy with their own lives – and no one is interested in some Hollywood celebrity walking past in downtown Manhattan.
James Van Der Beek
There’s a lot of actors I think that appear so much more together as the characters they portray as opposed to the actual people, so I know I’ve said this before: Hollywood’s not a place where you’re rewarded for growing up.
Ryan Reynolds
In Hollywood, she’s revered, she gets nominated for Oscars, but I’ve never heard anyone in the public or among my friends say, ‘Oh, I love Winona Ryder.’
Jennifer Lopez
At the time I came along, Hollywood’s idea of teen movies meant there had to be a lot of nudity, usually involving boys in pursuit of sex, and pretty gross overall. Either that or a horror movie. And the last thing Hollywood wanted in their teen movies was teenagers!
John Hughes
They are just really stupid people in Hollywood. You write them a script, and they say they love it, they absolutely love it. Then they say, ‘But doesn’t it need a small dog, and an Eskimo, and shouldn’t it be set in New Guinea?’ And you say, ‘But it is a sophisticated romantic comedy set in Paris.’
P. J. O’Rourke
I was the center square on Hollywood Squares for about fifteen weeks.

Gerard Butler
Hollywood always represents this big dream and fairy tale in people’s minds, but to me, it’s just hard work. Of course, we play fairy tale on the red carpet. It’s all Cinderella. But when the clock strikes midnight, I turn into a gray mouse and I go home, and I take my dress off and it’s over. That’s Hollywood.
Olga Kurylenko
I know it’s a film and all of that, and it’s a Hollywood film, but it kind of feels like this sometimes, when you’re in pain and it hurts, and you’re desperate. Or you are about to cross some moral line and it’s so seductive and you just do… and all that.
Patrick Marber
I began to feel that the drama of the truth that is in the moment and in the past is richer and more interesting than the drama of Hollywood movies. So I began looking at documentary films.
Ken Burns
Hollywood wouldn’t suit me. In L.A. it’s all about work – studio people have their five minutes with you and they go, ‘Oh mah Gahd, I love your movie.’ You just feel very self-conscious there.
Eva Green
The classy gangster is a Hollywood invention.
Orson Welles
I think all women in Hollywood are known as sex symbols. That’s what our purpose is in this business. You’re merchandised, you’re a product. You’re sold and it’s based on sex. But that’s okay. I think women should be empowered by that, not degraded.
Megan Fox
I remember my first thing was ‘CSI: Miami.’ I played a Cuban gangster. And that was it. I was like, ‘Wow, I don’t have to clean toilets.’ I could actually dress up and get paid equivalent to that. So that was my introduction into the Hollywood industry.

Parker Posey
Luckily, I was raised by people who’d already seen all the yuck stuff, which is why they originally didn’t want me to act. I understood the difference between getting a part at a Hollywood party and getting a job.
Laura Dern

National film industries tend to move in cycles. In Australia right now, we’re on a high, a feeling of potential, which as yet shows no sign of flagging. But the word ‘industry’ is misleading. A small national cinema has no industry in the Hollywood sense.

Chuck Norris
I was invited to photograph Hollywood. They asked me what I would like to photograph. I said, Ugly men.
Imogen Cunningham
People think that what I see diving must drive what I put into films, but that isn’t really the case. When I am making a Hollywood production, I am telling a different kind of story. Of course, if I see something interesting that works, we will look at it, but they are different things.
