Christopher Atkins's quotes

  • I really did drop out to become a dad. It's so much fun having the little knuckleheads around.
  • I'm trying to peek my head back into pictures.
  • I couldn't go anywhere. I had my hair pulled and my clothes ripped off of me several times. To this day, people still recognize me. I'm still fighting the image I have from The Blue Lagoon (1980).
  • Everybody wants to be like everybody else.
  • I always wondered if I was supposed to be excellent at something or not. I think, because of that, I have a lot of insecurities about myself.
  • I wanted to be a doctor in sports medicine; I was into sailing and all that sort of thing.
  • I'm a very big believer in fate.
  • It's only in the United States that they make a big deal about nudity.
  • I truly, truly believe that I was going in that direction and all of a sudden fate took me and put me here. It's like something else has other plans for me.
  • I sat backstage and had a beer with Richard Chamberlain, Paul Newman, and Princess Grace.
  • I've been a scuba diver since I was 16 and I think that was one of the reasons they chose me.
  • I became a very angry person and it was all due to alcoholism.
  • We also shot at a location that was an Aboriginal sacred ground for the shots coming up the cliff.
  • You know, I never expected to enter the movie business.
  • One of my favorite stories is my first kissing scene with Linda Gray.
  • Larry Hagman was a huge star, and he was carrying my stuff for me.
  • I'm really a romantic at heart.
  • Brooke might tell a different story, but I've always loved the water.
  • I thought that would be kind of cool, to make a bad guy look sympathetic.
  • Hollywood wants press, any kind of press.
  • Brooke was special in the sense that we grew up together on that island.
  • I figured that, if you do a vampire movie in Hollywood, you've made it.
  • The guy who owned that island was from Oregon and he decided that he wanted to have an Oregon feeling to it, so he planted pine trees all over the place!
  • Who cares who comes out of the closet or not, so long as you're happy?
  • As much as I didn't want to change, lifestyles do change.
  • I think the United States is way behind the times.
  • I had a lot of coaching for the movie and no, I have never sung professionally before.
  • There are times when directors just don't know what they're doing.
  • They built these little tanning booths for Brooke and I to do nothing but lay down and tan all over.
  • Usually I get recognized for The Blue Lagoon or Dallas.
  • Well, sometimes when you say you want to be like everybody else, you're really saying that you're not.
