I find it difficult to watch myself... I find it boring. Morgan Freeman

Some suggestions for you :

I am going to stop calling you a white man and I'm going to ask you to stop calling me a black man.

I gravitate towards gravitas.

I'm not intimidated by lead roles. I'm better in them. I don't feel pressure. I feel released at times like that. That's what I'm born to do.

All my life, all my life that I can, as far back as I can remember, I saw my first movie when I was six years old. And since then I wanted to do that. I wanted to be a part of that.

Was I always going to be here? No I was not. I was going to be homeless at one time, a taxi driver, truck driver, or any kind of job that would get me a crust of bread. You never know what's going to happen.

I've been living with myself all of my life, so I know all of me. So when I watch me, all I see is me. It's boring.

I do know there are a lot of people who seem to be in my corner, and that's, of course, wonderful. I'm really more interested in the nomination than in the award, because I think the nomination just puts you within a group of outstanding actors.

Still, it can be more effective to accomplish what you need to accomplish with the minimum effort. Watch Anthony Hopkins. He doesn't appear to be doing anything. He is so still that you can't see him working, but you are drawn into his character through his very stillness.

Give me something interesting to play and I'm happy.

I feel fine, I don't care who the director is. All you have to do is know what your doing - all of us - everybody in the business - that's all you ask anyone - you know your job, I know mine, let's go do it.

It's sort of well-known that anytime any catastrophe happens anywhere in the world, they can count on the United States for help.

You're going to relegate my history to a month.

I like the character roles. Somewhere back there I really came to the conclusion in my mind that the difference between acting and stardom was major. And that if you become a star, people are going to go to see you. If you remain an actor, they're going to go and see the story you're in.

When I was doing theater, I was very successful at believing that I was great, God's gift to the theater.
