Jeff Bridges

Sanya Malhotra
Modeling isn’t really a tough job. Acting is much harder: so much prep and changing your look and mannerisms. It’s a more difficult lifestyle being a model. I traveled all the time. Although, now I wonder, because I travel all the time for acting, too. So they both have their difficulties.
Olga Kurylenko

When I’m breaking in a character like Jessica Jones, I have this amazing opportunity to create her backstory. It’s all of the work that happens before I’m ever on camera… Writing ‘Bonfire’ was like doing all of that fun stuff; it was like 300 pages of prep work.
Krysten Ritter
I treat it just like a workday. When I’m training, I’m training. When I’m not, I’m not. And when I’m not in fight prep, we have fun weekends.

David Byrne
I trust myself. I trust my instincts. I know what I’m gonna do, what I can do, what I can’t do. I’ve been through a lot, and I could go through more, but I hope I don’t have to. But if I did, I’d be able to do it. I’m not going to enjoy dying, but there’s not much prep for that.
Carrie Fisher
The list of costly services that supplement some children’s public education is growing longer and now includes consultants, tutors, and test prep. That’s in addition to the homework help some stay-at-home parents can afford to provide.

Jeremy Wade
The College Board is both in the business of test admin

The College Board is both in the business of test administration and test prep. If this feels inherently unfair, it should – it’s like a doctor whacking your knee with a sledgehammer and then offering to patch you up.
Eliot Schrefer
When I create a character, I do it with the directors, and I take their notes and try to have my notes meet in a common ground. I don’t create characters myself, and I don’t really think that’s my job. I’m not a prep person at all – plus, I’m just a lazy procrastinator.
Keir Gilchrist
‘Boardwalk’ has kind of exposed me to a different demographic. And it upped my skills in terms of the speed with which I can prep a scene, and I’m excited to apply that.
Michael Pitt
I do a mean beef Wellington. Gordon Ramsay’s is a phenomenal recipe. But that’s a lot of prep. The secret to wrap it in Parma ham before wrapping in pastry. I’m so pro smuggling more meat in.
James Corden
I had three weeks of prep on ‘Wolfman,’ a ridiculously inadequate amount of time to try to bring together the fractured and scattered pieces of the production.

Joe Johnston
I was a chorister at St Mary’s Music School, from the ages of 11 to 13, after prep school and before I went to the Durham School. Edinburgh’s my favourite city in the whole world. I don’t think there’s anywhere that comes close to it.
Alexander Armstrong
I learned a lot about the prep Monday through Wednesday with my coach.
Collin Morikawa
When you prepare for something, you can then play around; you’re not as worried about remembering your lines because you already know them so well. That’s where you can find the freedom. So I’m all about prep work.
Krysten Ritter
I played youth football through the fifth grade and really enjoyed it, but Tampa Prep doesn’t have a football program. Wrestling was the only hard physical contact sport there, so I tried it.
Big E
With physical prep work, you know if you go to the gym, you will get size. There’s no chance it won’t happen. The emotional prep work is a variable. You could step onto the set one day and have a disconnect with your thoughts and feelings and have a rough day acting because you can’t quite tap into what you need.

All the work I’m able to be a part of through Grizzlies Prep, Code Crew, our mentoring programs and with the Grizzlies Foundation, they all go hand in hand because the kids are our future.

Gary Ross
I grew up playing field hockey and lacrosse – prep school sport – and I was terrible at them.
Julie Bowen
I was 11 when I started Latin – not like boys, who start early at prep school. At 14, you had to choose whether to start Greek and drop German, but my mum made a fuss, and I took Latin, Greek, French, and German at O-level, which meant I didn’t do much science.
Mary Beard
I was foreign and Jewish, with a funny name, and was very small and hated sport, a real problem at an English prep school.

Alain de Botton
In high school, AAU, even prep school, I didn’t really know how to play basketball. It was kind of like, ‘Let’s throw the balls out, go get buckets, just score, and go play.’

Every audition is different, but I get incredibly nervous and insecure and worked up for however long I have to prep – that’s when I get to spin. But you’re not allowed to spin once you enter the room. Doubt really can’t enter the room when you’re auditioning – unless it’s part of the character.
Nina Arianda
The 1,000 tasting portions were to be served over a period of six hours, starting at noon, so we would have to prep those another way, to keep them as fresh as possible.

I wasn’t meant to be a cook. It’s a profession I accidentally fell into one summer between college semesters while looking for an easy job as a waiter. Nobody would hire me as a server, but one restaurant, in desperate need of a prep cook, told me that if I could hold a knife, I could have a job.
J. Kenji Lopez-Alt
For wealthy or privileged students, applying to Ivy League schools or elite schools is sort of expected of them. If you go to a prep school, for example, that’s just what your guidance counsellor tells you.

Jared Dudley
I went to boarding school from the age of eight – first to prep school, then to Eton. One thing that kind of education teaches you is community living: there’s little retreat. That’s why people come out of it and talk about lifelong friendships forged in the furnace.
Damian Lewis
I binge write, basically. I do a lot of prep, research, setup. I’ll have a pretty detailed outline. Sort of like a beat outline. And then I’ll add little notes and dialogue ideas, and I’ll just create a 20-page document.
Cary Fukunaga
Obviously, I’m a female in sports. You work really hard, you prep really hard, you put a lot into the show, so when you have certain comments, and people are saying, ‘Oh you add nothing,’ or, ‘You got your job because of this.’ Really? Why don’t you look at my master’s degree?
Molly Qerim
I first decided that I wanted to act when I was 9. And I was at a very bizarre prep school at the time; to say ‘high Anglo-Catholic’ would be a real English understatement.

Jocko Willink
Boxing is individual, although there’s a team concept because you need a great corner, you need a great trainer, you need a great prep man, you need all of these things, but it’s more of a Mano a Mano; it’s more you versus me. I miss that time in training camp and Dad and Mom cooking meals. It was one big family.
Sugar Ray Leonard

Helmut Newton

With ‘Tower Prep,’ Cartoon Network wanted to go into a new area where no other kids’ programming was going. There were a lot of kids’ sitcoms on the air, but they wanted to really go with more of like an adventure/drama feel.
Paul Dini
If you want a good play and a show, you need time to prep for it. Artistes must be allowed to practice without being charged for the practice sessions. Let the auditorium charge for the tickets.
Pankaj Kapur
I’m so OCD about prep work and learning lines and stuff.
Corey Hawkins
My usual will be eating five boiled eggs, go into the gym, then eat my oatmeal, then get cracking with whatever press I have. I try to meal prep or get a meal prep company or buy a certain amount of meals throughout that day while I’m travelling.
