Love is not as important as good health. You cannot be in love if you're not healthy. You can't appreciate it.

With craziness, you can't predict it. There's very little defense you can have on craziness.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


It's mind-altering when you slip into someone else's shoes. That's psychedelic, man.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


Something's happened in our society which I don't think is beneficial, and that's that you see the public being fed box-office news. Newscasts now, every local station - I've been traveling around the country a lot, and you see the local news, and they give box-office reports.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


What's great about comedy, obviously, is that you set up a situation that people assume one thing and then you break the assumption. That's basically the backbone to comedy. You set up a situation, let people make an assumption, and then you break the assumption.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


I'm pretty handy! I do a lot of things around the house, and I actually enjoy it.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


It's funny, I do try to maintain health. I started doing Bikram yoga which is that hothouse yoga, the 105 degrees yoga for 90 minutes. It's great, you purge out all the sweat and you're drinking water.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


I can tell you for sure: people who are at their peak right now will not sustain that. You can't. It's against the law of nature.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


If you like vanilla, you're not going to like 'Breaking Bad' - you need to like a specific flavor that is unusual, that is different, that takes risks.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


Any kind of civil rights oppression is wrong.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


Hollywood has known this for quite a while: Cable is the place to go because they truly have a supportive network and they want to do things that cannot be seen on broadcast. That stimulates the writer-producer. Cable is king.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


Being a day player, period, is one of the hardest things you can do as an actor.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


I think if you believe in past lives, I must have been an extremely deprived being. I must have been mistreated, beaten, and forced into indentured servitude because this life has just been phenomenal.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


I appreciate my role as an actor much more after I direct because it's just easier.

I have a lovely family who supports me and it's great.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


If something is well-written, it has a chance to be good and if it's not well-written, it will not be good. It could even become popular, but it won't be good.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


You get addicted to emotions. Our endorphins kick in and it's like a high. On the low end you might love roller coasters. On the high end you might be a bank robber or something.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


Money has never been my primary goal.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


Love between two adults is always conditional. You can fall out of love because you are able to fall in love.

Quotation of Bryan Cranston


Bad for the sake of bad is boring to me and not believable.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


Given the right set of circumstances any one of us could become dangerous - so why not show that in our programmes?
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


I don't really relax. When I sleep, I relax.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


You need to tell the truth to the audience, or they will throw a brick through the TV. They'll turn you off.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


In order to be an actor you really have to be one of those types of people who are risk-takers and have what is considered an actor's arrogance, which is not to say an arrogance in your personal life. But you have to be the type of person who wants the ball with seconds left in the game.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


People would love to be rich, but they're looking for the easy way. Who wouldn't want to win the lottery? Just to score.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


I have talked to stunt drivers all my life, 32 years of talking to stunt drivers. There's a craziness to them.

There are far more talented people doing voice work than I.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


When actors first come up, you're auditioning for everything - you're trying to sniff it out like a pig with a truffle and you would do anything!
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


My personal feeling, if I can interject a political note, is that I don't think it is right that basic health care is a privilege. It shouldn't be. It should be a right of all human beings. And certainly in the richest country in the world.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


There's so many things that can go wrong in the execution of a project like a television show or a movie, so many little elements, any number of things, all the way to marketing - like they could market it poorly and nobody finds it and down it goes.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


I think, and I mean this sincerely, I was raised humbly. We were a lower middle income family and a household that was scrimping by at times. We were watching the dollar, stretching the dollar, and coupons. It was all those things.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


If you have a level of expectation in your life that you have to be a quote-unquote star, whatever that means, you might be setting yourself up for failure.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


I love acting because it's empowering. It empowers me.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


Part of an actor's job is to draw up a back story.

Quotation of Bryan Cranston


You don't want to be a Kardashian.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


My passion is becoming involved in good work, whether that means as an actor or writer or director or producer or all - that is not as important to me.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


The TV business is like the produce section of the market. Today everything is fresh and glistening and firm. And tomorrow, when they find a bruise on you, they toss you out.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


I admit, I do a lot of projects, but it's because I'm in a position now where I'm reading a lot more scripts and plays and things, and I'm really listening to offers and trying to think what I want to do at any given time.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


I'm not crazy about being out of control, and I get emotional when things are unclean. When things are out of order. When things are messy. Because I lived in a mess as a child.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


I've done more crap than I care to remember. I really have. 'Airwolf.' 'Murder, She Wrote.' 'Amazon Women on the Moon.' But you learn from all these bad shows. What you don't want to do and what you don't want to be involved with.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


I'm a big fan of 'Mad Men.'
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


My goal has always been to be a working actor.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


The only thing that we as actors really can control is to be able to say 'yes' or 'no' to the material.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


What's great about well-written material is, if you can shock with justifiable actions, that's the best.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


When you're directing an ongoing series, the tone has already been set. So a director will come in and fulfill that tone - reinforce the characters and their behavior. The challenge is to find unique ways that you can visually tell the story while keeping the established tone and the pace and the characters.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


When you're an actor in grade school, high school, college, whatever, you start to realize what you're really good at, what you're kinda good at, what you're okay at, and you start to compartmentalize. But if you know yourself and what you're capable of, it's just a matter of opportunity.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


I wish Americans thought more like Europeans when it comes to money and work. They take time off, they do what they love. We think work is the most valued commodity. Really the most valued commodity is time.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


It used to be that people would watch TV shows because they knew the characters would stay the same. Whether it's Archie Bunker or it's Thomas Magnum you watch it because it's like, 'I'm comfortable, this is the same guy.'
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


When I was a kid there were a very select few channels - programmes had to have more of a large appeal and they just didn't offer very much. Now you have a situation where the television world has expanded and there's hundreds of channels.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


I happened to stumble on finding a passion that bloomed.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


My face, in repose, is mean. I scare people. You know how some people have a built-in smile? I look like I'm going to eat children.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


I'm saddened by James Gandolfini's passing. He was a great talent and I owe him. Quite simply, without Tony Soprano there is no Walter White.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


I don't need to work, but I love to work and I will make the movie if I would want to go and see it. But if I hear about a story that you could do in a sketch - and a lot of films should be just sketches - then I am not interested in it. I think too many movies attempt to stretch a very small idea. They will make something about a kid trying to lose his virginity while going to college. It's like, 'Really, there is a whole movie about that? You are asking me to spend almost two hours to see some kid trying to get his rocks off?'
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


A lot of people think, "This guy does that really well. Here is a role just like that for him". When I left "Malcolm in the Middle", I got two offers to do television pilots and they featured fun, goofy dads. I said no, and one of the producers said, "Why would you say no? You're perfect for it and it's exactly what you do". I said, "It's exactly what I did for seven years, but I am not going to help anyone put me in a pigeonhole". So I won't be looking at scripts about a teacher who becomes a drug dealer for a while.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


We have a DEA chemist on the set. He taught us how to make methamphetamine, which is a very detailed process. I still have my notes. I didn't want to learn about the back-­alley process. I wanted to know how to make it perfectly, the absolute purest meth, and what equipment and chemicals to use, because that's what my character does. So if I had to, I could make more than just meth; I could make really, really good meth. It has created a very healthy sideline for me if this acting thing ever stops working.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


When I was in my late teens I spent my summers on Catalina Island. I met this guy named Reverend Bob, an older guy in his 40s who made a living doing wedding ceremonies. One time he said to me, "Bryan, I messed up. I booked two weddings on the same day. Would you help me out?" I jokingly said okay, and he typed up a certificate and sent it to the secretary of state, and just like that, I was a minister. Since then I've married maybe a dozen couples.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


I think actors have a tendency to want to hang out with other actors, and there's a reason for that. When you're out there with civilians, you get the same kind of questions again and again: "How do you memorize all those words?" or "Have you ever met so-and-so?" But when you're around other actors, you can talk about other things. Nobody's asking, "What's it like to be in movies?" Because we all already know.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


Honestly, I don't have a clue how much money I make. It really doesn't matter to me. My agents know, and sometimes they ask me, "You want to know how much you make?" I don't care. I'm sure it's fine. I mean, I don't want to sound glib. I know money is important, but ever since I stopped worrying about finances, I've made more money than I ever thought I'd make in my life. The fact that I make a dependable income at all is just amazing to me.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


I grew up in Canoga Park, which is in the west end of the Valley. On the East Coast, people had snow days, but we had smog days. I'm not kidding. Every so often there'd be a smog advisory, and parents would get warnings like, "Don't let your kid go outside!" That's a weird thing to hear from your parents. Don't go outside because there's too much smog. But sometimes we'd go out anyway. We'd put on our big smog shoes and go traipsing through the smog. We'd throw smog balls and have smog fights. Or we'd build smog men, using carrots for their noses. It was great fun.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


Stars have much more power. I'm the star of my show "Breaking Bad", and I have the power to try to sway opinions. Absolutely. And that's the reason you want to become a star as an actor, to be able to have more control of your destiny. Actors basically are the type of person that with three seconds left, we want the ball. Give us the shot to make it or miss it. We'll take the lumps if we miss it, but we want the chance to get the glory. An acting coach of mine, Shirley Knight - a great actress - said that it's the actors' arrogance. We want the chance. Give it to me. We know plenty of people in life, back in Little League or whatever, who'd say, "Oh, please don't hit it to me. Please don't hit it to me. Oh dear God, please don't make me have to make this decision. Please don't make me get onstage." There are those people, and then there are those of us that say, "Give me the shot. Let me take it."
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


... I don't really relax. When I sleep I relax. I don't have hobbies, I don't collect things. I enjoy creating.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


I don't even think about the money when I consider roles, I turn it over to my agency. Money will come. I respect it but I don't thirst for it. I wish Americans thought more like Europeans when it comes to money and work. They take time off, they do what they love. We think work is the most valued commodity. Really the most valued commodity is time.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


It's all about the written word. Whatever's well-written. It doesn't matter if it's features, or children's stories... it's all about the written word. And it could come in any different form, but that's the criteria. That's it for me.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


I love playing the know-it-all guy who is also kind of stupid. That guy who thinks he's great, but he's not. That's a wonderful character to play. Kind of the Barney Fife type. He'll tell you what's going on, but inside he's very insecure. That's always a fun character. And I loved, for pure fun and enjoyment, my character Hal on Malcolm. Because I found his emotional core, and once I found that, I could leap off from that and the writers started to write for it. And that core was fear. Hal was afraid of everything. Every single thing. He was afraid of heights, he was afraid of failing as a father, he was afraid of getting fired... Someone would walk into the room and surprise him, and he'd yelp, because he was afraid of noise-afraid of a lot of things. That lent itself to a lot of humor, but it was also a true emotion that you could lock in on.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


I love playing pompous asses. I think I would like that on my tombstone. "He was the definitive pompous ass."
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


I think the best-written films or television series have a measure of the opposite of what they are. We have some darkly comic moments sprinkled throughout "Breaking Bad", as we had some sweet sentiment or serious drama sprinkled throughout "Malcolm in the Middle". I think any good movie does that, any good play. You have to break it up. You can't have one train going in one direction all the time. Audiences are more sophisticated than that.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


You know, this business is pure luck. It truly is. There is a tangible amount of luck that is necessary for a successful career, and the only way that luck happens is if you're prepared for it and you stick with it. If you drop out of the scene, your opportunity for luck diminishes greatly. No one's going to say, 'Hey you're an insurance salesman. Come and do this movie.'
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


I don't want to say it's not important to win [an Emmy], because it is. Would it be important to me personally to win? It would be wonderful; I would be delighted. Is it important for an actor's career? I would say Yes.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


My wife, Robin Dearden, is the cook, really. I'm a good helper and I clean like nobody's business. I can load a dishwasher like nobody else.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


The only thing I say a prayer for is for health and safety for my family. Some people even include happiness and a hope for something else. Not me. I think everything else is on your own. That's the way I look at it. If you can just maintain health and safety, you're in good shape. And anything else, you have to create.
Quotation of Bryan Cranston


I've got a whole mantel just waiting for those awards to come, a whole big mantel. There's just so much available space. I've got the light fixtures hanging from the ceiling, all ready to shine on them. I dust it off every day.
