Christoph Waltz's quotes

  • [on working in Hollywood] In Europe, everybody would say, "Well, they just want to squeeze you like a lemon." Well, yeah! But, you know, if I have the juice, why shouldn't they?
  • [on being typecast] Nobody's talking about that. I get interest coming my way from many different directions. I'd hate to pigeon-hole myself. The variety is what's interesting.
  • I know what I can contribute. And that's a very limited, very specific unit, whether it's a big movie, a small movie, a German movie, an American movie. That's the advantage I have over a 25-year-old. I've had the chance to understand what it is I do.
  • Becoming an actor is like becoming a father. It's not hard to become one. Making a life of it is the challenge.
  • If the advice to 'get out' is too late, then my advice would always be read, go to museums, go to concerts. Don't learn life from movies or television.
  • [on fame] As a motivation in itself, celebrity is foolhardy and stupid.
  • I do feel I can say - without smugness - that it feels good. I am entitled. I am entitled to judge the situation and say that yes: It feels good, and that yes, I agree with you. I feel like I served my time. I feel like I paid [my dues].
  • It would be completely laughable if I claimed I was always motivated by the pure craft of acting and that recognition doesn't play a part. Of course it does - that's human nature. The bohemian artist who exists only for his art, it's a myth.
  • [on director Roman Polanski] His process is diligent preparation, utmost precision, and masterful execution.
  • In America, movies are made like art and sold like products. In Germany it's the exact opposite.
