Albert Brooks's quotes

  • Being a screenwriter in Hollywood is like being a eunuch at an orgy. Worse, actually, at least the eunuch is allowed to watch.
  • I've always felt like I work in a small little area that doesn't represent anything like the rest of society.
  • Bullfights are hugely popular because you can sit comfortably with a hot dog and possibly watch a man die. It won't be me, but I can sit comfortably and watch it.
  • When I die, if the word "thong" appears in the first or second sentence of my obituary, I've screwed up.
  • [on his father's death onstage] The interesting thing to me was that he finished. He could have died in the middle. He could have done it on the way over there. But he didn't. He finished. And he was as good as he'd ever been in his life.
  • [on being called "neurotic"] I have feelings about that. It's an interesting world we live in when Arnold Schwarzenegger can kill 115 people in a movie and he's fine. I drive around a woman's house twice, and I'm neurotic. Go figure.
  • [on why he changed his name from Einstein to Brooks] Do I even have to answer?
  • Normally movies have the same people they use over and over for everything. It's called typecasting. They don't like to take chances. They'll go with the guy they had before.
  • People ask me all the time about improv, and I tell them that improv is just the final icing. You need a structure. It's like, if you're going to commit suicide, you need the building to jump out of.
  • This getting old is something. I think I envy my dog, because my dog is sixteen and she's limping and she's still living, but she doesn't look at me like she knows. She's not thinking what I'm thinking. It's a cruel trick that we all know the ending.
  • [on his greatest fear] That three days before I die I'll find out what happiness means.
  • [on the talent he would most like to have] Parting the Red Sea would be cool.
  • When Rex Reed wrote that I had a face like an open sandwich, that was the best moment so far. It's just a thing of mine - I've always wanted to be compared to deli food.
  • The relationship between the artist and the audience is rather like a courtship.
