Nathan Lane's quotes

  • I don't know what goes on in their heads out in Hollywood.
  • [on working in the Broadway flop "Merlin"] Doug Henning's greatest magic trick was making the audience disappear.
  • [asked by a reporter about his "loud" persona on stage] You have to be loud... it's the theater.
  • [Coming "Out" following the death of Matthew Shepard] It was like somebody slapped me awake. At this point, it's selfish not to do whatever you can... If I do this story and say I'm a gay person, it might make it easier for somebody else.
  • [on William Duell] The audience adored him. The first time around he'd get a huge laugh. The second time he'd get a huge laugh. The third time, he'd just hold up his fingers - and it brought the house down.
  • [on accepting his first Tony Award] This means a lot to me because, as you know, I'm an enormously unstable, desperately needy little man.
  • [his response to a question about his sexual orientation] I'm forty, single and work a lot in musical theatre. You do the math.
  • There doesn't seem to be a lot of middle ground with me.
  • Sure I think it is healthy to speak the truth, and be who you are, and be proud of that.
  • I'm really an honorary Jew, you know; all the best people are. I really do feel Jewish, even though I'm a Catholic. The way the Church has been behaving, I'm happy to be Jewish.
  • I have to accept the fact that, no matter what I do, it's going to annoy someone.
  • I am not a sad clown. I am not a sad clown.
  • I'm still the fat kid from high school who never had a date.
  • One of the nicest compliments I would get very often on the street is people would say, "I love you on The Good Wife (2009). I just can't tell whether I should like you or hate you!".
  • People have to do things in their own time, and that's what I did.
  • I'm one of those old-fashioned homosexuals, not one of the newfangled ones who are born joining parades.
  • I seem to always inspire a strong reaction one way or the other.
  • [presenting the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature in 2002] Gosh, up until now I thought Monsters Incorporated was a documentary on the Weinsteins. Oh, we kid the rich and powerful because we love them!
  • I think Mel Brooks has always seen homosexuals as extraterrestrials with great fashion sense.
