Actors & Acting!

The 87th Academy Awards will air tonight . . . so allow me to poke some fun at actors and acting.  Here are some notable quotations/definitions courtesy of The Cynic’s Dictionary by Aubrey Dillon-Malone.  Enjoy!

Actor(s)
“Someone who can remember his briefest notice well into senescence, long after he has forgotten his phone number or where he lives.”  (Anonymous)

“A guy who if you ain’t talking about him, he ain’t listening.”  (Marlon Brando)

“A ghost looking for a body to inhabit.” (Gall Godwin)

“The only honest hypocrites.” (William Hazlitt)

“People who should be treated like cattle.”  (Alfred Hitchcock)

“People who should keep their mouths shut and hope for the best.”  (Richard Burton)

Actress
“Someone with no ability to waits to go on alimony.”  (Jackie Stallone)

Acting
“The most minor of gifts, and not a very high class way to earn a living.  After all, Shirley Temple could do it at the age of four.”  (Katharine Hepburn)

“A good training for political life.  The only problem is the speeches are harder to learn.”  (Ronald Reagan)

“A way of living out one’s insanity.”  (Isabelle Huppert)

“Standing up naked and turning around very slowly.”  (Rosalind Russell)

“Farting about in disguise.”  (Peter O’Toole)
