Robert Forster's quotes

  • [about luck in the movie business] I'm not sure how a guy wins or loses in this business, but somebody's got to come along and make you lucky. You can't do it yourself.
  • [about his character in Jackie Brown (1997)] This is the great noir hero. If Humphrey Bogart or Robert Mitchum were around today, they'd be playing that role.
  • [about the rules to succeed in Hollywood] Step #1 is you've got to have a good attitude, Step # 2 is accept all things, deliver excellence to whatever is offered, give it your best shot. And rule #3 is never quit. It's not over 'til it's over.
  • [about his comeback and the comparison with John Travolta's career turn in Pulp Fiction (1994)] If I get 10% of John Travolta's bounce, I will be thrilled.
  • [on what roles he played that he thinks he will be best remembered for] I wouldn't know, but I just know this: If I can ever find a character where I get laughs, I hope that is the thing that endures. There's nothing better than getting a laugh.
