Owen Wilson Quotes
A buddy movie has to have that beat where one buddy doesn't show up. They hit the same beats as romantic comedies.
Acting is more fun than writing. Writing is harder, more like having a term paper.
Acting just doesn't seem that scary to me. It's just a feel you get and you do it.
Actually, to be honest, a shotgun wedding might be the way to go for me. You can't stay at the party forever. At some point, you have to take stock and ask yourself, 'What am I doing here?'
At about the same age as I was interested in petrified wood, I was just fascinated with this dumb idea that we only used 10 percent of our brains. I was always thinking, Man, if I could only use 20...
Being in a bathtub with Jackie Chan, I don't know, it has a way of bonding you I'll tell you that. I don't know if there are some weird undertones. It was like we had met in Los Angeles and we didn't have that much to say to each other but, after that bathtub scene, we were great friends. What it really was was that when we'd play off each other, it really was fun. We really did become friends.
Ben Stiller, is kind of a moody guy, and you kind of have to put on the kid gloves because you never know which Ben is going to show up on set.
Going out with someone who's doing the same thing as you, who's in the public eye, can be a problem... You want a break when you come home. You don't want someone with the same issues as you maybe reminding you of stuff you don't like in yourself. That being said, I don't think being in the spotlight had anything to do with me and Sheryl not working out. The story of our relationship is the same story I've had with most of my relationships. I was lucky enough to find a great girl and, because of my lack of... focus, the relationship went south.
I can't think of a movie I wish I'd acted in, but there are movies I wish I'd written.
I definitely would like to do some more dramatic roles.
I don't feel like I'm a hundred times happier. Can't we petition someone to make it so that outside stuff is the key to happiness? I'm tired of people always saying, 'It's gotta come from you!' Can't it come from, like, a new pair of shoes?
I don't like caring what other people think, but I do. There's a freedom when you meet someone who doesn't care, who is just themselves in all situations. I had the way I was with my friends, and then my personality with adults, and that's continued a little bit. To just be yourself, and not try to sell anything, or make a good impression, that's something worth striving towards.
I guess a lot of me in the sense is like Dignan, that's my sense of humor. The stuff that Dignan is doing is what I would do. When we test-screened the movie I realized that not everybody laughed where I did. I realized there's not a big audience for my type of humor. Dignan doesn't have self-awareness. Donald Trump has none either. When I read 'The Art of the Deal' I laughed at that because neither of them realize how funny they are.
I have never taken myself that seriously as an actor.
I really didn't know, to be honest, whether it was working. This fantastical element when I go on my walks at midnight into this other world. I had my doubts because a lot of the people that I meet are iconic people from history. Who's going to play them? How's that going to work? But then I see the movie and it works. It's one of the best things in the movie. It was great.
I think of myself as a doom person. I'm a worrier. But I like the idea of being an optimist. Maybe I'm the kind of optimist who deep down knows it's not going to work.
I think the way it works is that when you're casting a movie, you usually want to work with people that you believe in.
I think there is a middle-child syndrome. I don't know quite what it is, but I think I suffer from it.
I thought that I'd be married by the time I was 30 and be starting a family, but it just hasn't worked out that way. I think that there's something about being in Hollywood. I don't know if I'm shallow, but you want to make sure that you make the right choice because you know that it's forever and I didn't realize that I have such a strong scientific side that demands that I experiment with and compare women.
I was reading some Bob Dylan interview where he said, 'It beats nine-to-five. It beat it yesterday, it beats it today, and it will beat it tomorrow.' That's how I feel. I just thank God that I'm able to make a living doing something that I can have a good time doing, and be creative.
