Bernie Mac's quotes

  • . . . The Bernie Mac Show (2001) is my life. It's the truth, and I'm not ashamed of a minute, an hour, or a second of my life . . .
  • [interview in Playboy, 12/04] Every time you see a black romance it's over-the-top. There always has to be extreme hostility between the sexes. He has to cheat. She has to show him how independently strong she is, not just as a woman but as a black woman.
  • [interview in Playboy, 12/04] I was living in a place where I was harming myself. I was irresponsible. I'd lost several apartments. I couldn't hold a job. I was tired of being a no-good son of a bitch who called himself a man but was just a grown boy.
  • [interview in Playboy, 12/04] I have Glocks, .45s, Berettas, Remingtons. I like the marksmanship and the discipline that it takes to be a gun owner. I like the machinery. Being able to take it out and clean it is even more fascinating than having the gun.
  • [interview in Playboy, 12/04] I'm not a star, and I don't want to be a star. Stars fall. I'm an ordinary guy with an extraordinary job.
