I love reading inspirational quotes from fellow actors. It reminds me to keep pursuing my dream. Most recently I saw an Instagram post from Chris Pratt that really touched me (I’ve popped it below). So, I thought I’d create a post with all the inspiring quotes I’ve seen recently. You never know, they may give you that boost you need!
It’s 3:20am. I got picked up for work at 6:45am yesterday. I’m not good with math, especially after being up for approximately 61 hours but I think I’ve been up for over 77 hours. I did a table read for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 this morning and then shot all day on Passengers and just now wrapped some 144 hours later. Weirdly both films, which iI’l be shooting back to back, are being shot in Atlanta at Pinewood studios. We have the best crew. Total rock stars busting their asses. And the stuff we’re shooting. My God. I can’t wait for you to see it. I go back in in about 8 hours to do more. I am doing what I love. It doesn’t feel like work. Even though it is. I’m having fun. I’m overcome with joy and gratitude. I felt like posting this to say to anyone out there chasing your dream… Fifteen years ago I felt the same passion I feel today, but I had very little opportunity. I had to hustle hard and go hungry. I had to eat sardines and figure out how to get gas money. And I never had a plan B. I never stopped believing. Ever. Don’t give up. Apply constant pressure for as long as it takes. It will break before you do. Go get it.
It’s only when you risk failure that you discover things. When you play it safe, you’re not expressing the utmost of your human experience.
The most valiant thing you can do as an artist is inspire someone else to be creative.
– Joseph Gordon-Levitt
For myself, for a long time… maybe I felt inauthentic or something, I felt like my voice wasn’t worth hearing, and I think everyone’s voice is worth hearing. So if you’ve got something to say, say it from the rooftops. Never stop. Never stop fighting. Never stop dreaming.
– Tom Hiddleston
Really try to follow what it is that you want to do and what your heart is telling you to do. Once you figure out who you are and what you love about yourself, I think it all kinda falls into place.
– Jennifer Aniston
I feel like anything I’m doing in life, I try to stay myself and be as honest and true as I can be, you know, and be a nice person. I’ve always been taught to be kind to people and have an open mind about life.
– Liam Hemsworth
Acting means living, it’s all I do and all I’m good at. If I weren’t getting paid well, I would still be acting in a small troupe somewhere.
– Morgan Freeman
