Nina Hoss's quotes

  • Her maxim of life: "But where danger is, grows the saving power also."
  • [on the possibility of playing a Bond girl] If it's a stupid blonde in a bikini then I wouldn't be interested, but if it's an interesting character being mean, or something like Javier Bardem played, that could be good.
  • [on working with the American cast of A Most Wanted Man (2014)] I don't consider myself to be lacking in confidence, but the confidence they have is so natural and no one is afraid of anything. It's just there and you work together.
  • [on Devid Striesow] I always thought he was a great talent. Especially a comic talent. I think a comedian can be a tragic actor, and I see both things in him.
  • [on Philip Seymour Hoffman] I must say I admire him as an actor and he was very exciting to work with.
  • Politicians can try to act but it doesn't always work.
  • [on playing the leading role in Phoenix (2014)] Nelly is so complicated, I had to simplify the process of playing a woman playing herself for myself first.
  • [on her partnership with Christian Petzold, 2015 interview] We challenge each other. And I love his characters. They're women who fall out of life and have to fight their way back. There is pain but there's always something hopeful.
  • [on Cate Blanchett] I feel huge admiration for the craft that Cate has, and the person that she is. She's incredibly intelligent, a human being with immense intuition, heart, generosity, risk-taking, and all these things I respect so much.
