Ben Stiller's quotes

  • If my parents were, like, plumbers, who knows what I would be doing?
  • There's an old saying in Hollywood: It's not the length of your film, it's how you use it.
  • I have no problem with straight actors playing gay, but I always feel like I can tell. Does that sound horrible?
  • I have not been an easygoing guy. I think it's called bipolar manic depression. I've got a rich history of that in my family. Our family has publicly gone into therapy, so that's out in the open.
  • I pay a huge chunk of money to my agent and publicity people to shield me from my fan mail. I don't even want to know how many letters I get. I don't see fan mail as a good thing. It always makes me think of stalkers.
  • Normally, people tend to shut off their ambitions and competitive thinking because it doesn't help them much in normal life. But in the movie business you've constantly got to prove yourself. So I can be a real asshole on the set sometimes.
  • [on Zoolander (2001)] It wasn't a big hit. It came out 10 days after 9/11, so a strange time to release a movie but I'm not sure it wouldn't have been any bigger at any other time.
  • What I really like about directing is that it's easier, a different pressure.
