Richard Chamberlain's quotes

  • When I grew up, being gay, being a sissy or anything like that was verboten. I disliked myself intensely and feared this part of myself intensely and had to hide it and became "Perfect Richard, All-American Boy" as a place to hide.
  • I actually feel sorry for people who have a lot of illusions in their head about what gay is. I mean, I know some gay people who are really wonderful people.
  • 'Handsome' means many things to many people. If people consider me handsome, I feel flattered - and have my parents to thank for it. Realistically, it doesn't hurt to be good-looking, especially in this business.
  • I've learned, I think, to be able to distinguish between the necessary and the unnecessary as far as my limited outside time is concerned. Saying 'no' politely is a necessity if one wants to lead any kind of stable life.
  • Nothing is secret once you tell anyone. If you want to keep it quiet - don't tell a soul.
  • I suppose everyone tells little white lies. Quite often they're necessary to make someone feel better or prevent feelings from being hurt. Whoppers? No, that's dangerous and they'll boomerang.
  • Having the focal point of contemporary art right in the middle of Honolulu is an amazing treasure because people are so seldom exposed to that quality of artistic endeavor.
  • I'm not a romantic leading man anymore so I don't need to nurture that public image anymore.
  • I pattern my actions and life after what I want. No two people are alike. You might admire attributes in others, but use these only as a guide in improving yourself in your own unique way. I don't go for carbon copies. Individualism is sacred!
  • Over a long period of time, living as if you were someone else is no fun.
  • I consider myself a religious person. God is something very personal with me and I don't flaunt religion in conversation with others.
  • When fans ask me for advice, here's what I tell them: "Trust yourself."
  • I hated being in the Army... I don't like being ordered around. I don't like ordering people around. I came out a sergeant. It was all just another role for me.
