Bryan Cranston's quotes

  • I've got a whole mantel just waiting for those awards to come, a whole big mantel. There's just so much available space. I've got the light fixtures hanging from the ceiling, all ready to shine on them. I dust it off every day.
  • My wife, Robin Dearden, is the cook, really. I'm a good helper and I clean like nobody's business. I can load a dishwasher like nobody else.
  • I don't want to say it's not important to win [an Emmy], because it is. Would it be important to me personally to win? It would be wonderful; I would be delighted. Is it important for an actor's career? I would say Yes.
  • I love playing pompous asses. I think I would like that on my tombstone: "He was the definitive pompous ass".
  • . . . I don't really relax. When I sleep I relax. I don't have hobbies, I don't collect things. I enjoy creating.
  • [2013, on his character, Walter White, from Breaking Bad (2008)] His soul is calloused.
  • [on the death of James Gandolfini] I'm saddened by James Gandolfini's passing. He was a great talent and I owe him. Quite simply, without Tony Soprano there is no Walter White.
  • My face, in repose, is mean. I scare people. You know how some people have a built-in smile? I look like I'm going to eat children.
  • [on winning the 2014 Emmy Award] I happened to stumble on finding a passion that bloomed.
  • [2009] When you walk into a room for an audition, a big chunk of an actor getting a job is confidence. It's talent and confidence, and if you can convey both of those things, you're in great shape.
  • [2016] I'm on a campaign of my own. I'm trying to instill a sensibility in America that we all love this country and we all want what's best for this country--we just have different ideas about how to go about it.
  • The thing is, everyone needs a champion. You get that from your family members or your wife, but everyone needs that. And along with that, you need someone who's going to hold the door open for you.
