Famous People Quotes
We all want to be famous people, and the moment we want to be something we are no longer free.
Famous people are deceptive. Deep down, they're just regular people. Like Larry King. We've been friends for forty years. He's one of the few guys I know who's really famous. One minute he's talking to the president on his cell phone, and then the next minute he's saying to me, 'Do you think we ought to give the waiter another dollar?'
A voice is very intimate. It's something of your own. So there's always this fear, because you feel naked. There's a fear of not reaching up to expectations. As you become more famous, people come and expect to hear something extraordinary, so you don't want to disappoint them. I feel this sense of responsibility.
It's really easy to avoid the tabloids. You just live your life and don't hang out with famous people who are in the tabloids. Don't do anything controversial and be a normal person. Have friends. And get a job and keep working.
I think in the end, when you're famous, people like to narrow you down to a few personality traits. I think I've just become this ambitious, say-whatever's-on-her-mind, intimidating person. And that's part of my personality, but it's certainly not anywhere near the whole thing.
If you're famous, you suck, just for being famous. People in England totally get that; Americans don't.
This sounds crazy, but I know so many famous people, I'm just not intimidated by anyone. I feel really comfortable with it.
I'm sick to death of famous people standing up and using their celebrity to promote a cause. If I see a particular need, I do try to help. But there's a lot that can be achieved by putting a check in the right place and shutting up about it.
I've gotten books published. I've met famous people that are very nice. I look back and I say, 'Wow. Thank you, God, for giving me this gift. And thank you for helping me to keep going.'
I remember being superyoung, like nine or ten years old, and thinking, 'Man, I wonder what famous people eat for breakfast. They must have some special kind of cereal!' My mind was so warped by the idea of fame.
When famous people come up to you it's a bit weird, but it's an honour, really, when they recognise you and want to chat to you for a bit.
I lost some of my friends because I got so famous, people who just assumed that I would be different now. I felt like everyone hated me. That is the most unhappy time of my life.
It is a mark of many famous people that they cannot part with their brightest hour.
I'm so famous, people expect me to sell as many records as Celine Dion or Puff Daddy.
It's interesting because people assume that because I'm famous I know all famous people.
Famous people complain about fame, but they never want to give it back, myself included.
I want to eat, cook, meet famous people and make fun of them.
I've walked with very famous people down red carpets over to the crowd of thousands of people, and you'll reach out to shake their hand and they've got a camera in their hand. And they don't even get their hand out, because they're recording the whole time.
You know, one of the biggest thrills I have is when famous people recognize me from Taxi.
Ultimately, the only people who are in any way edified by hanging with famous people are you at the age of 11 and your mom.
Anything that's of any use, famous people get hold of it and take it for themselves and it gets a bad rap.
With high fashion, it's a performance. You're trying to interpret a fantasy in a very physical way, and you really are playing a character. I've played men, dead people, famous people, historical icons, and it's no mean feat. It's quite an insular experience even though the crowd is in front of you and there's an expectation.
Famous people come up to me, but I don't know who they are because my sight is so bad. It's always at the pool of the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills when I don't have my lenses in and my glasses are in my room.
Helena Bonham Carter
When someone becomes successful or rich and famous, people perceive that person as being different. But I'm the same guy I've always been.
There's no difference between fame and infamy now. There's a new school of professional famous people that don't do anything. They don't create anything.
