When I'm on a picture, I have two bosses - the director and the producer. My co-star is not my boss.
Quite often I can be in a bookshop, standing beneath a great big picture of myself and paying for a book with a credit card clearly marked John Grisham, yet no one recognises me. I often say I'm a famous author in a country where no one reads.
Fact is, awards shows were never really about recognizing achievement. They were a publicity ploy cooked up in the late 1920s by MGM topper Louie Mayer and his newly formed Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences which was itself, back in the day, nothing but a front organization to discourage unionizing.
In Hollywood - in Hollywood, you're as good as your last picture.
Erich von Stroheim
The picture was of me, and I sent it.

I keep a picture of my beloved children close by. Also, water and plenty of pads and pens.
Alain de Botton
Martha Stewart is extremely talented. Her designs are picture perfect. Our philosophy is life is messy, and rather than being afraid of those messes we design products that work the way we live.
I realize that I had the best of serious picture journalism.
If kids like a picture book, they're going to read it at least 50 times. Read anything that often, and even minor imperfections start to feel like gravel in the bed.
I've made 122 movies, and I daresay there's a picture of mine showing somewhere in the world every day.
I think Russians today have a distorted picture of capitalism, liberal democracy and market economy.

When I was young, my favorite picture book was 'Fletcher and Zenobia,' written by Edward Gorey and illustrated by Victoria Chess. It's long out of print now, but its mix of macabre humor and 1960s psychedelia made it a perfect children's book for the times.
The public doesn't want to hear people complaining about having their picture taken.
