In most cultures, you can have a kid at 18 and it's not a big thing. It's not like, 'Oh, you've got to get a different haircut and move to the suburbs and act, like, 35.'
During 'Saturday Night Fever' at the end of the first act dance number I tried to perform a split-jump, only I can't do them so I ended up on my ass followed by the most unsightly backward roll out of it, followed by the cast falling over in laughter and a good portion of the audience too.
If you wanna cross somebody, then do that. Don't act like it wasn't you.
Say what you will about Americans, but one thing they are not is passive. The Bush administration may have pushed through the Patriot Act weeks after 11 September, but, as the American public got to grips with how the law was affecting their individual rights, their protests grew loud and angry.
Everybody in L.A. wants to be an actor. I just wish I could meet somebody who doesn't act or sing.
My stand-up act? I combine the fact that the world is a violent place with the fact that each person is responsible for the situation they are in.
Politics, where fat, bald, disagreeable men, unable to be candidates themselves, teach a president how to act on a public stage.
I like to mumble when I act, 'cause I think it's more realistic. For some reason, the impediment has given me the accent of a Mexican gangster.
Communism is a proposition to structure the world more reasonably, a proposition for changing the world. As such, we have to analyze it and, if we deem it reasonable, act upon it.
The act is unjustifiable that either begs for a blessing, or, having succeeded gives no thanksgiving.
If the pressure is getting to you, whistle. In a barely audible way. It's the best way I know of to let go of tension. Music gets your mind off the situation, and the act of whistling melts the tension out of your body.
It's really fun to act like a bimbo. But it's fun to act like a bimbo only when people know that you really aren't one.
I cannot consistently, with self respect, do other than I have, namely, to deliberately violate an act which seems to me to be a denial of everything which ideally and in practice I hold sacred.
Roger Nash Baldwin
Fine artists reflect, and then they act. Fashion photographers - we act, and then we reflect.
Naming a baby is an act of poetry, for many people the only creative moment of their lives.
Certainly I'm still mining my experiences as a journalist. I think it's no coincidence that all three of my novels basically are about how people act in a time of catastrophe. Do they go to their best self or their worst self?
Part of the reason why movie bosses are so obsessed with crime movies is because they know that world and the criminals. And that's what they are - they would not hesitate to act illegally to achieve profit and gain.

Daniel J. Evans

Reading is the last act of secular prayer.
We face a choice this election. President Obama is fighting for changes that grow the economy from the middle out and help all Americans succeed - jobs, education, health reform, the DREAM Act, equal pay for women.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
