Quote of the Day
Next to my husband, and along with Marlon Brando, I think that Yves Montand is the most attractive man I've ever met.
I was the Marlon Brando of my generation.
I admired Marlon Brando as I grew up. I though he was one of the finest screen actors around.
As a kid I decided that a Canadian accent doesn't sound tough. I thought guys should sound like Marlon Brando. So now I have a phony accent that I can't shake, so it's not phony anymore.
Marlon Brando. The finest actor who ever lived. He was my idol when I was 13. He's done enough work to last two lifetimes. Everything I do, I think: Can Brando play this with me?
I said to Tennessee, this thing is becoming the Marlon Brando show.
The thing about Brando was that I'd make these directions, and he'd walk away. He'd heard enough... to get the machine going.
Marlon Brando said any guy can become an actor. It takes a real man to quit.
In fact, I think I have had a ghost in my house. Although not active lately, unexplainable things would happen and the kitties were particularly sensitive - especially, Marlon Brando... the cat not the man.
I'm not Jack Nicholson. I'm not Brando. But I do mumble.
Benicio Del Toro
I mean, the actors that I admired were Marlon Brando, Montgomery Clift, an actress named Barbara Harris. And Greta Garbo. They were great actors.
Robert De Niro
The most realistic blood I've seen is when Marlon Brando gets beat up in On The Waterfront.
George A. Romero
Anyone of my generation who tells you he hasn't 'done Brando' is lying.
Acting is all about big hair and funny props... All the great actors knew it. Olivier knew it, Brando knew it.
I've worked with wonderful actors like Marlon Brando and Henry Fonda.
I've tried like hell to make bad movies good, and I can't. Maybe Marlon Brando has been able to do that at times. But even he has a hard time making 'The Appaloosa' a good movie.
I know this'll sound obnoxious, but acting was very much an accident for me. I didn't have, like, posters of Marlon Brando in my bedroom when I was growing up.
Brando's a family friend. His mother gave my father a shot to be in a play at the Omaha Community Playhouse. That was the first production he was in.
But to this day I am convinced that the real reason we met was because Alexander is from Nebraska, and he was completely fascinated that I was about to go off and make a movie with Brando - perhaps the most famous Nebraskan of all.
Thomas Haden Church
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.
If I am duly compared to Marlon Brando at all, well, I can only think of The Teahouse of the 'Shanghai Noon,' that they're comparing me to that!
I would have to say honestly I was very pleased to be in a film whether it was good or bad with De Niro, Norton and Brando even if I don't have any scenes with them, I thought it was pretty good company to keep.
One of Brando's problems is that he can't have a conversation with anyone.
I had life threats, because people accused me of approaching Brando as God and his son was Jesus. I literally had people saying my blood would run in the streets for doing that.
It was just the thrill of a lifetime. Brando and Hackman were two of my heroes.
Working with Brando was fun. It was like a tennis match. We played unbelievably well together.
You know one scene I always think about is in 'The Godfather', when Marlon Brando's in the hospital. Al Pacino arrives there and enlists the help of the baker to protect his father. The two of them stand outside and the baker fiddles with a cigarette lighter, but Pacino's hands are rock steady. That's when we sort of realize that he can do this.
I love Marlon Brando. Never seem him bad, just less good.
When I was in high school in the '50s you were supposed to be an Elvis Presley, a James Dean, a Marlon Brando or a Kingston Trio type in a button-down shirt headed for the fraternities at Stanford or Cal.
It was sort of his 'Brando' moment - his very 'method' moment. He just absorbed it and continued on.
