Brett Favre likes to tell stories.
Hollywood is the kind of town that likes to make everything larger than life: movie premieres, aging actress' lips, and murders. Actors come from all over the world to find their sliver of fame on the street of L.A. Many stars rise, but many more fall.
Why would I be embarrassed about being Canadian? I'm very proud. We're just the nicest people. Everyone likes us.
A lot of people say about 'Gossip Girl,' 'Well, how do you feel about gossip?' Well, who really likes gossip? No one likes to be talked about if it's not flattering or a compliment.
To sit next to Walter Hill, and to be able to exchange ideas back and forth, and for him to be able to tell you that he likes what you're doing - I don't know. I kind of pinch myself.
If I write scripts that nobody likes, I don't think we'll be doing 'True Detective.'
I've grown tremendously as an actor by being there. It is comic writing the likes of which I don't know that I'll ever see again and it's been a great, great experience.
I don't want everyone to like me, and I don't choose who likes me. You have to give them the choice, give them the option.
I have Twitter auto-post to my Facebook page, and I occasionally post things directly to Facebook as well. I've always noticed that the direct-to-Facebook approach generates far more likes, but I've never actually gone back and run the averages.
People see that I have my own voice, my own opinion, my own likes. The album really reflects that.
And as a result, I guess I'm just kind of a rubberneck. I'm kind of a - someone who likes to see things and likes to see these events and talk to the people who make them happen. But I don't think journalists are as important as the people they cover.
What I really enjoy the most is seeing what the crowd likes. I enjoy making people laugh.
TV likes you to talk about the superficial.
I'm just glad I got to work with the likes of Spielberg.
I love clothes that, when you put them on, you feel like you. I don't care whether anyone else likes them.
I think that anyone who likes writing views 'The New Yorker' as the, you know, pinnacle of the publishing world. If you get 50 words published in 'The New Yorker,' it's more important than 50 articles in other places. So, would I love to one day write for them? I guess. But that's not my sole ambition.
Theatre is castigated for wallowing in self-indulgence, but it's curiously unsentimental. You simply have to move on. Everything passes. Something in me likes that.
Had I done the movies that were offered to me in my prime, at the height of my career, I would have been alongside the likes of Denzel Washington. But, I chose not to do those movies.
Edward James Olmos
Submitting myself for awards feels like a weird kind of horn-blowing that's not comfortable for me. I'm really happy when someone likes my work, but I don't like marketing myself, putting myself on display.
Hollywood likes to imagine robots as mechanical copies of ourselves - which is a terrible idea.
I'm a person who likes these sort of movies... sad but moving 'art movies' that normally are at a festival and then they go to a small art house theater and disappear.
After I did 'Mr. Show,' I was basically just a writer for a while. I was really young, and I kinda was like, ,wow, I'm 27 and I was already on this iconic show, and now I can just coast. But no one likes coasting, because you have to fill your day with stuff.
When it comes to dieting, I'm the kind of person that likes to be told what to do. I don't like to count points, etc. I don't want to have a lot of choices.
I'm not jumping into anything fast. I'm an actor that likes to choose my work and there's an element of good taste to my work.
Most artists I run into aren't that thrilled with what they do anyway. They are glad to have different versions out there to see which one the audience likes the best.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
