Michael Douglas Quotes
"I'm not a big filmophile. I don't watch movies a lot for a hobby. I spend all my time watching sporting events. Because, opposed to movies, you can never tell how they're going to end." "Don't go to L.A. unless there's work. It's one of the most frustrating and depressing places to be an actor. The problem is that it has no center. I would try to do something here first." (on Inside the Actors Studio, answering an actor's question about whether to move from NYC to L.A.) "When you're making pictures out of heartfelt passion, it hurts when someone calls them a calculated business move." "I'm impressed with the people from Chicago. Hollywood is hype, New York is talk, Chicago is work." She is not only beautiful but also very deep and we understand each other extremely well. I love her above all. Catherine is the woman of my life. A dream. "I don't know about Brad Pitt, leaving that beautiful wife to go hold orphans for Angelina. I mean, how long is that going to last? I mean, don't ask me what happened with Renée Zellweger. I don't know how you get married for four months. And Julia with Lyle." "From the moment I met Catherine and we formed our family, I was a new man, very different from the one I used to be. This is the result of my every day life with her, of the intense love we have for each other, of the great need for each other that we have, and of the great respect that we have for one another. There is a time when you become sarcastic, you lose the passion.. and, when you are blessed again, and you have the fortune to love somebody the way I love my wife, you understand that you have to nurture your partner and not take everything for granted. What a marvelous gift!" "The exciting thing about making movies today is that everything is up for grabs. And you had better grab." (1980) "Revenge is a very good motivation if you can direct it. It's healthy. Very healthy." "Wonder Boys was a huge disappointment personally. I loved the movie and we didn't even get critically acknowledged as far as awards go. I thought it was a f** king disgrace. I'll be honest - it really hurt my confidence. It was a punch in the gut. In fact it was my father who helped me through it. His favorite movie is Lonely Are The Brave. Nobody saw that when it came out, nobody's seen it since. My father's disappointment in that movie helped me get over mine." "When my daughter Carys wants to get married I'll be as rough with the guy as Catherine's dad was when he checked me out. He gave me the once over and then some." "Having a little girl is incredible. I tell you it's an insight. I think guys who have sisters have a big advantage, understanding the female psyche." "As soon as I met Catherine I told her I wanted to have babies with her, and the moment I found out that she had the same birthday as me - tadaah! Then when I discovered she loved golf, I realized all my fantasies had come true. I've lucked out at this time in my life. I just lucked out. I'm so impressed by her intelligence, sense of humor and work ethic." "Times have changed and sex sells. Around 1990, I voluntarily went into rehab because I was drinking too much and some smart ass editor said, 'Oh another boring story about an actor going to rehab. Let's give him sex addiction.' Then it became 'Self-confessed sex addict!'" "My life does take a bit of work. I certainly know how much guys like Catherine, and well deserved. She's fantastic and beautiful inside and out, she's a talented, talented actress, really good mom and a heck of a wife."
