Bud Cort's quotes

  • You're never fully dressed without a smile.
  • I was walking with Ruth Gordon to the set and I saw this dead squirrel. I said "Look at that!" so she turns around and goes "Yech, why did you want to show me that?" I said, "I don't know".
  • Santa Claus was one of my first heroes, no doubt about it.
  • (Describing Groucho Marx) He was definitely one of my heroes. He inspired me so, still does. He gave me a lot of love, something I'll cherish forever. He also gave me his tooth, but that's another story.
  • (Describing Barbra Streisand) She was nineteen-years-old and had these black Martian eyes. She sang like a bird and I thought she was the most gorgeous thing I'd ever seen.
  • Acting was a safe haven from the Sturm and drang at home. Theatre let me escape.
  • (Describing Harold and Maude (1971)) It was a genius script, written by Colin Higgins. Nothing was filmed that was not in that script. I knew immediately upon reading it that it would be a classic.
  • Age is like a coat that you can put on or take off. I prefer to not have that coat on.
  • I don't want no retro spective.
  • I was taken to county fairs and painted thousands of portraits every day. But it became too mechanical -- I knew I had to express myself more. I dreamed of being an actor but never thought I could be one.
  • It's funny...God makes us mad if we work and go mad if we don't.
  • Artists pray for inspiration and when it comes, you can't divulge it or express it without someone thinking you're crazy!
  • (On the death of Robert Altman) Bob was, in essence, a master painter and the depth and breadth of his art changed the face of film forever. His wildest talent was that he could look at you and see immediately what you were trying to hide.
  • (On Harold and Maude (1971)) And we shot every single word that was in that script. There was no improvisation. ... But to sell it, I had to really live it. There were moments that were hard, but Hal Ashby was such a loving director.
