Quote of the Day
Melanie Lynskey Quotes
- Page 2
I was at university and I was studying modern drama and studying English, and I just was like, 'I don't wanna be in this place. I wanna be acting.'
I've definitely had times in my life where I've been depressed and not able to do anything at all.
I've done a gazillion readings that have gone on to be movies that are made without me.
If I could be working every day, I would be.
The acting life is different than I thought it would be. I love it - it's actually a lot less pressure than I thought it would be.
To take a job just so I can go on a fancy vacation doesn't really seem worth it.
Usually when I am in a movie that is about to come out, if people don't love it, that is fine - I can handle it.
I don't know, I love it when I see movies with people who are not super familiar to me or people who I've seen in smaller parts who are suddenly getting a chance to do something bigger. For me that's very exciting.
I feel like any actor should always be thinking about how to serve the story. The thing to be cautious of is trying to make too much of your 'moment,' or whatever. The story is a lot bigger than you, and you're there to help it along.
I know a lot of actors have all these expectations and believe that one thing should lead to another thing, and that's probably the right way to build a career. I don't know what's wrong with me - I just don't think like that!
I think that for me as a person, it's very easy for me to hear, 'It's too difficult.' Or, 'You're not easy to cast.' And, 'You're not beautiful,' and this and that.
If a movie is received badly, and I'm in only one scene of it, I still feel responsible. I feel like it was my fault at all times. If people were like, 'This movie sucks!' I'd be like, 'Well, that's because I'm terrible.'
