Sam Rockwell's quotes

  • Sarita (Sarita Choudhury) was the one that got away. She was amazing, really amazing. I loved Sarita. She was my pal.
  • I have a constant sort of melancholy approach to acting that fuels me. I want to do everything.
  • I've been in more than 20 movies. You just do the best you can and try to make a living. Whether it's The Green Mile (1999), Galaxy Quest (1999) or Lawn Dogs (1997). There's no difference, not for me.
  • I want to be a character actor, but I also want to make some money. Money is power and power gives you choice.
  • I think of myself as a journeyman actor. I've got some talent and I work hard, but people like Brando or Pacino-those people are touched by God.
  • I've played so many hicks and country bumpkins. It's hilarious, because I've always lived in cities. I feel a little strange all the time, a little bit off-center. I never feel that people are as nutty as me.
  • [2002 Quote]: I'm originally from San Francisco. I might move there some day. But, I like LA, I have fun in LA. It's a fun town if you've got money in your pocket. It's a good town.
  • [on why he was fired from G.I. Jane (1997)]: I gave them no alternative, because I didn't want to learn how to scuba dive. I wouldn't mind learning in the Bahamas, but I didn't want to learn at three o'clock in the morning.
  • [1998 Quote]: I just see myself as a character actor. I'd like to be a star in the same way as Gary Oldman or John Malkovich are famous, who get to do character pieces and not act like movie stars.
  • When I took acting classes and being drunk was the assigned impediment of the day, a lot of people would go out the night before and get drunk. That's not research! Research is going to bar... and drinking coffee.
  • I did the odd bit of theater from the age of ten, but I spent most of my time doing the usual teenage things - you know, thinking I was black, trying to break dance and smoking a lot of dope.
  • After a while, you stop thinking that the film you're in is going to be your big break. I mean, I was sure that the television show I did in 1989 was going to make me.
  • I definitely don't want to become a parent. It's not my bag. - Interview with Chrissy Iley, November 11, 2007.
  • [on the death of his Louis & Frank (1998) co-star Tony Curtis] The guy was such a sweetheart. Beautifully neurotic, in a very endearing, kind of Woody Allen way.
