Quote of the Day
- Page 9
Fame is no sanctuary from the passing of youth... suicide is much easier and more acceptable in Hollywood than growing old gracefully.
I don't even think of myself as particularly good looking, and not at all a typical kind of Hollywood leading man sort of actor.
I jog up to the Hollywood sign every weekend. It's fun and what a view!
You can't find true affection in Hollywood because everyone does the fake affection so well.
I don't have no story. Everybody wants this Hollywood story, but the world don't owe you nothing, man. It's what you owe the world.
Don't ever humiliate a man. If you're gonna have to dress him out, you take him aside and do it that way. That's the one thing I don't like about Hollywood: They go in for public humiliation. You shouldn't do that to a man.
At North Hollywood High School, I was shunned by everyone. I would sit down in the cafeteria, and students would get up from the table and walk away. They thought I was from the Mafia.
I'm in control of my life, not anyone in Hollywood.
I don't want to lie. I dislike dishonesty. And I work in Hollywood, a town and a business that relies on a lot of falsehoods with people hiding behind different facades. I don't want to be a part of that.
In Hollywood, people get reputations, just rumors that are passed down.
People ask me if I ever feel outside the Hollywood loop, and I never do, because both of us do a lot of theatre, so it's great for New York and it's also half-way between Europe and the west coast, so it's the best of both worlds.
Hollywood is like being nowhere and talking to nobody about nothing.
Often Hollywood crews go into third world countries and I don't believe they behave well.
Hollywood and fashion are symbiotic partners, especially during awards season.
There are a lot of things I never did, because I believe in watching those true Hollywood stories and I see how easy it is to lose track of your life.
I don't do divas. I don't do entourages. I don't do the Hollywood crap.
Hollywood hasn't aggressively pursued me. Neither have I aggressively pursued Hollywood.
What's considered ideal in Hollywood is completely different than anywhere else in the world. I don't think you can aspire to it, nor can I. Everybody is retouched, stretched, lengthened, slimmed and trimmed. I could look at a picture of myself from the past and think, 'Why don't I look like that now?' It's because I never have!
I really like having a life outside work. I sometimes wish I did more career stuff and was in that Hollywood scene a bit more. But Toronto's my home.
I keep a pretty low profile. I live in Culver City with some roommates. I don't do the whole 'Hollywood' thing.
For me, my family and my faith have been what's really been my anchor, and grounding me, and helping me navigate through a lot of the things that really destroy marriages in Hollywood, and in your own personal integrity.
Once I realized the emptiness of life apart from knowing God, when I embraced God and the truth of the gospel and the truth of the Bible, it was a no-brainer decision to see that that was a treasure that was infinitely more valuable than some sort of an atheistic Hollywood party life.
The Hollywood lifestyle was just overwhelming. A party here, an interview there, magazine and modeling shoots daily, your face everywhere and girls throwing themselves at you. As great as it felt at the time, I still felt something missing, and that I needed to change.
You know, when you don't go on TV and talk about how many women you sleep with, some people in Hollywood, that are supposedly 'in the know,' start whispering that you're gay. If I were gay, I wouldn't be ashamed to admit it, but I'm not.
Hollywood needs to recognise all shades of African American beauty.
