Text Quotes
Weirdness is not my game. I’m just a square boy from Wisconsin  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) The bad things about theatre get balanced by the good things in film and vice versa. So to tell you the truth, I love it when I can go back and forth - it feeds different parts of you and exercises different muscles  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) Plenty of bad movies are very successful, and plenty of good movies are not. And distribution is so crazy, some films won’t even get their day in court.  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) I guess they often cast me as the bad guy, because I’m not, er, conventional looking. I look sort of violent. I’m the odd one out, the outsider.  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) All the time, as an actor, you want to be asking what’s next and where things are going. If you’re not asking those questions, you’re not growing.  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) I love doing action and stuff; the problem is usually action movies are not that interesting. Also as I get older I feel like there’s less opportunities for me  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) Sometimes I think women are lucky because they can develop in ways men can’t. The old-boy network may be oppressive to women, but it actually stunts men in terms of personal growth  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) Sometimes I say I feel more like a dancer than an actor, because there are things implied about being an actor that I don’t really like. I feel more comfortable with the word ‘performer’. I like being the thing. I like being the doer. There’s a factualness to it. And then certain resonances happen out of how you apply yourself physically  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) I’m an optimist. I hope if a movie’s good that it will be a success, but as we know, that’s not always true, just because of popular taste, advertising, distribution patterns - there’s lots of reasons  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) The Midwest isn’t somewhere you mix with those from the performing arts. But my mum and dad would go off to Chicago every so often to see shows. They would bring back the albums and the movies, those little eight metres, and we would all watch. I think that was when I fell in love with acting  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) The worst thing is to get involved with people who aren’t passionate about what they’re doing.  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) I set myself challenges every time I work. Ideally, I approach everything as though it’s the first time - with a beginner’s mind and an amateur’s love  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) I love Sam Neill. The thing that I always say about him, and I think it’s true, is he’s so dry. When he’s serious, I think he’s joking; when he’s joking, I think he’s serious  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) I’m a task-oriented actor. A pretender. And I try to invent my process anew each time I make a new project. So I frown on any method  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) I think on some level, you do your best things when you’re a little off-balance, a little scared. You’ve got to work from mystery, from wonder, from not knowing  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) I wish to Christ I could make up a really great lie. Sometimes, after an interview, I say to myself, ‘Man, you were so honest - can’t you have some fun? Can’t you do some really down and dirty lying?’ But the puritan in me thinks that if I tell a lie, I’ll be punished  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) The mask can be a limitation, but you just deal with it. You do get superhuman strength and pumpkin bombs and all this other stuff to express yourself with.’  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) With theatre, you have to be ready for anything  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) It’s true in the beginning I started playing villains, and I think that’s pretty clear, because if you don’t conventionally look a certain way and you’ve got a certain kind of presence when you’re young, then what’s available to you is character roles, and the best character roles when you’re young tend to be villains.  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) Film is an editor’s medium. You can create very good raw material and they can make it horrible, or you can do not so well and they can make it beautiful. You don’t really know.  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) Sometimes you make very interesting movies that aren’t meant for everybody. But this is a capitalist society, so everything conspires to put value on whether it sells or not.  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) My dad was a surgeon, my mom a nurse, and they were always out working. I had five sisters and a brother. They didn’t care what I got up to.  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) When you work on anything, you want to find the range of impulses - which ones get portrayed is another question, but you want to have that complexity and that fullness, even if you’re playing a cartoon character.  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) I’ve never had any close male friends. The most important relationships in my life have always been with women.  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) I have some sort of affinity for compulsive behavior. The most interesting stories come up from the people on the outside.  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) Each of the actors is quite different, but they’re all living in the same world  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) I’ve been in very few flat-out comedies. But I feel like I’ve always made comedies.  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) Central to being an actor is pretending, and the adventure of it all. That’s why you become a junkie for different kinds of situations.  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) A lot of critics are lazy. They don’t want to look closely and analyze something for what it is. They take a quick first impression and then rush to compare it to something they’ve seen before.  (Willem Dafoe Quotes) I pride myself on being fairly polite on a set so it’s kind of a guilty pleasure to poke others on the set.  (Willem Dafoe Quotes)
