Tom Cruise Quotes
- Page 2
I've spent many birthdays on a movie set, all great days.
When you become successful in any type of life, there are people who are not contributing to the motion.
Whether it's making a film or raising my children, personally I'm striving to do the right things and to learn.
As a young actor, people were trying to define who I was before I really knew that for myself. But I still remember thinking, 'This is what I love doing, and I hope I'm going to be able to do it forever.'
Awards are wonderful. I've been nominated many times and I've won many awards. But my journey is not towards that. If it happens it will be a blast. If it doesn't, it's still been a blast.
Do I make mistakes? Yeah.
I'm passionate about learning. I'm passionate about life.
The thing about film-making is I give it everything, that's why I work so hard. I always tell young actors to take charge. It's not that hard. Sign your own cheques, be responsible.
When I first started out all the attention could be a bit unnerving, especially when people stared. Now I find the best thing is to just relax. Being recognized is just something you have to get used to.
I've learned to relax more. Everybody feels pressure in what they do, maybe mine is just a little different because there doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day to accomplish what I want to.
I've never made a film that I didn't believe in, you know? However the picture turns out, I've always given everything to it. That's kind of how I approach life. I can't help it. There's no part-way with me on anything in any area of my life.
The exciting part of acting, I don't know how else to explain it, are those moments when you surprise yourself.
I like to work with people that I like hanging out with, that I admire, that are really smart and talented, and we can problem solve together.
I go without sleep, I just go hard.
I didn't become an actor to have power, but it just happens that I have it and so I have a lot of opportunities.
I'm a romantic.
I'm always around my mother and sisters. I always wanted to be a father, a husband.
I've always had the same values. Family for me has always been important. When I shoot, everybody comes.
What I find sometimes that is tricky is if actors are using too much of their own life in a picture, in a scene, they get locked into a particular way to play the scene, and it lacks an immediacy.
