When I go train hopping and I look up into the sky, there are always so many more stars than I remember there were.
William T. Vollmann
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.
I deliberately try not to cater for the commercial market, so I can't see myself in competition, you know, with second or third generation rock stars.
The real big stars only keep this up for about seven years.
Ruud van Nistelrooy
Over-the-knee socks remind me of the 1920s, silent films, and the stars of the era who wore the rolled-down stockings. They sort of referenced that in 'Cabaret,' when Liza Minnelli was singing 'Mein Herr,' and I love the way she looks in that scene.
Trevor Horn has worked with some of the biggest stars there is. And he was happy to do a record with me. He's worked with some amazing people, and then there's little old me walking in.
I loved everything about show business, meeting the stars, the whole ambience. I was living every young kid's dream. I was told a pop singer's life was three years, but I was still making money seven years later.
Ethel Merman would stay with a show for years and tour with it. So would Mary Martin, the great stars. They recognized the value of that success and nurtured it. Now, you come from Hollywood, you play 12 weeks and go away. I don't think that's the best policy.
Child stars have nothing. They have no choice.
Vamps no longer exist. Stars have taken their roles.
American films are terribly popular all over the world and American movie stars are terribly important. I don't know why.
I don't consider a lot of actors that I really admire movie stars.
I can see how child stars can be thrown off-kilter.
I've never written a movie, I'm not in the movie business. I go out to L.A. and I'm like everyone else wandering around in a daze hoping I see movie stars. I write the novels that the movies are based on, and that feels like enough of a job for me.
I guess rock stars are role models for the kids who listen to that music. My role models have all been geologists - you know, the guys who are doing fieldwork until they're 70.
I'm 5 9, and there were two stars in my life who didn't mind that I was taller than they - George Raft and John Garfield.
There's something about actors - not stars, but actors - if they have the character, and someone is pushing and shoving them to be the best they can be, they enjoy that.
There are a lot of actors who don't like reality stars 'cause they feel these people aren't accomplished. They haven't done this or that, but they are savvy. They have found a way to make it work. I could dissect your career all day long, but I'm focused on my own career.
Considering all the legal hassle child stars can be, I won't be surprised when they are phased out by CGI children voiced by adult actors.
There are stars out there who would die to have this much exposure.
The Emmys is great, but the Golden Globes, you have the stars of television and the stars of movies in one place.
We had to leave Australia to become international stars.
The only difference from one $100 million budget film to another is which of the 12 box stars are getting $20 million to be in it.
I don't want to be on 'Dancing With the Stars' anytime soon.
I think I'm a lot funnier and goofier than people were able to see on 'Dancing With the Stars.'
