Michael Biehn's quotes

  • I'd rather have a small part in a good film with good people than play the lead in something I don't really care for.
  • I know why they think of me as intense. It's because on the set, I'm very concentrated. I don't just walk on and do my thing and walk off. I'm very intense when I'm working. I know exactly what I'm doing before I get in there. [1990 interview]
  • [on Christian Bale's rant on the set of Terminator Salvation (2009)] I thought it was kinda sad. [...] I'll tell you what: he wouldn't talk to me like that.
  • I want to be in the best movies I can be in, but if I can't be in the best movies, then I want to be the best I can be in whatever I am in.
  • I try not to think of my art as a career, because the only time in my life I feel very good about standing on this earth is when I'm acting. That's why I do it: for those few moments when everything just feels so good. [August 1986 interview]
  • I almost never get to play heroes like Corporal Hicks [from Aliens (1986)]. It must be the glint in my eyes. People think something wicked is going on. [August 1986 interview]
  • [when asked if he ever thought about doing cameos in the Terminator movie series] Well, I've thought about it but nobody else did.
  • I always used to tell my agent I didn't want to be a movie star. I just wanted to be an actor and it kinda worked out that way. The problem was I didn't get paid as much and I didn't get the choice of scripts that I wanted. [February 2011 interview]
  • [on refusing money to lend his body likeness for Alien³ (1992)] I was really stupid back then.
