Ray Liotta's quotes

  • It would be nice to do a movie where I didn't have to choke the girl to get her.
  • (when asked why he did the voice of Tommy Vercetti for Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (2002)) "For the money."
  • "I only did it to get my foot in the door and because you never know what can happen." - On his first film, The Lonely Lady (1983).
  • What I really am is a homebody. I was a homebody even before I had a family. My days are filled with home stuff.
  • It's the oily skin. It gives you zits when you are a teenager, but then it doesn't wrinkle as you get older. [on why he looks a lot younger]
  • People have all these preconceptions about me. Whereas if you look at the roles, Henry Hill was the nicest guy in Goodfellas (1990)! I was a nice guy too in the comedy _Heartbreakers_. And I was a really sweet father to Johnny Depp in Blow (2001)!
  • I've only been in one fight in my whole life... in 7th grade, yet everyone thinks I'm a maniac.
  • Research is good to a degree, to learn how to hold a gun. You want to look like you know what you're doing and get a basic sense. But your imagination is all you need. They say that the imagination is more powerful than knowledge.
  • There's not a day that goes by that I don't hear somebody mention Goodfellas (1990), unless I stay home all night. It's defined who I am, in a sense.
  • [1997] Actors a bunch of hot air when you really look at what's life about and the real trials and tribulations, day in and day out.
  • [on his off-screen persona] If I'm playing a nice guy, I'm great on the set. If I'm not, I'm a dick. I'm sure I'm going to be unbearably wonderful while I'm playing the preacher.
  • You know how they have stand-ins when they're doing the lighting? I always do my own standing-in. That way I stay in the zone and nobody asks me anything, except to move left or right.
  • I subscribe to the theory that luck is when preparation meets opportunity.
  • There's nothing worse than working with somebody who doesn't know what they're doing, especially if you've had experience. It gets really frustrating - then I can be a dick on set.
  • [on meeting the real Henry Hill for the first time after playing him in Goodfellas (1990)] The first thing he said was: 'Thanks for not making me look like a scumbag.' And I said: 'Did you see the movie?'
