Don Cheadle Quotes / Quotations

But I think it's intoxicating when somebody is so unapologetically who they are.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


I've been doing this since I was 10 years old, inhabiting different people and playing different roles.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


President Obama inherited a broken country mired in two wars, a financial crisis, a mortgage mess and more than we all probably even know about and has in my opinion brought us back from the brink. But I still see my friends in no better shape and the gap widening.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


I think if you were to look at my resume in total you would see a lot of things that are kind of all over the map.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


I don't like message movies either.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


I want to see somebody go to jail over the financial crisis and not just black, brown and poor whites over humbles and minor drug beefs.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


We're trying to do what Miles Davis would have wanted us to do, which is approach it as artists with his life as the canvas.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


I also believe that you are what you have to defend, and if you're a black man that's always going to be the bar against which you are judged, whether you want to align yourself with those themes or not. You can think of yourself as a colourless person, but nobody else is gonna.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


I imagine it was much different in the 1970s. That was the Renaissance for black actors, albeit in blaxploitation movies. There was a much greater preponderance of work then than there is now.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


I understand what's it like to work all week and on Friday night just want to go and leave your brain at the door, buy some popcorn and be thrilled by something.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


Many of my friends and family are scratching it out somewhere decidedly south of the ever widening gap between the haves and have nots, looking at losing their homes, colleges they can't afford and healthcare they can't avail themselves of.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


For me, it's always just been about finding material that I think is creative and interesting and fun and something that can expand me and that I can hopefully do something with.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


But most scripts are terrible. Most projects are bad, that's just kind of the way it is. And I'm not really attracted to those.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


I want to be a part of great things.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


People have always been obsessed by celebrities. There are just more outlets and opportunities to make a living exploiting that obsession nowadays.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


The fun for me is to mix it all up. I would actually like to do something as far away from what I've just done, just for my own personal joy and growth, for what I want to do.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


I hate it when, by page 30, I know what the lead's going to do and then what the bad guy's gonna do. Mostly it's just scripts by the numbers where nothing's surprising, nothing's interesting.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


I used to record but just in my own studio or in my friend's back when I toyed with the idea of being a rapper.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


So often when Black men have to play roles on TV, we're either the noble savage or we're completely a savage, and there's no nuance.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


It's great to be in a film that's able to have people really want to become socially conscious, to walk out of the theatre and want to do something.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


I think we should all be more concerned about the environment and the effects of global warming. It will be pointless to talk about all the issues that divide us when it's 300 degrees outside.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


I don't like movies that are trying to preach and trying to tell you how to feel.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


I was about to write that in the future I would chose my words more carefully but I'm sure I won't.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


Now is a good time, 10 years ago would have been a good time, and 10 years from now it will still be a good time to see a dynamic, entertaining movie that's wall-to-wall Miles Davis where the music will hopefully spark some desire to know more about the man.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


I don't believe that the U.S. needs to take a police role. I think it needs to support African nations that have said they want to become a part of the solution.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


I prefer film to TV because of the amount of time film affords you that TV doesn't (though theater is probably my favorite and the scariest place of all).
Quotation of Don Cheadle


No, it's not comfortable; I hate watching myself. You don't like when you hear your voice on your voicemail; imagine having to see yourself 30 feet wide and 30 feet big.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


I've never been a part of a film before that offers such a platform into real issues, that raises social awareness and has the potential to change things.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


The process changes slightly from role to role. Obviously, there are different things you're called on to do. You're not digging deep for Basher Tarr like I was for Paul Rusesabagina, but at the end of the day it's still all make-believe and you still are trying as realistically as you can to depict these characters.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


If people in this country think of Africa as a place with kids and flies swarming around their heads, then they won't understand that these people are you and you are them.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


We're always trailing, as far as the amount of roles that are written for us and the films that are being made that have black characters in them. I don't know if that's going to change.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


But I don't think it helps to be thought of as a scene-stealer. That's not comforting for the other actors. They think, 'Well, I don't want to work with him. Go steal from someone else.' So I'm never going into a movie thinking that I want to grab the attention. Quite the opposite: I give that stuff away, because I'm wanting to make the best whole piece. I want to look back at my resume and think, 'That was a great movie,' not, 'Oh, those four movies were shit, but I was good in them.' I want to be a part of great things.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


Thirty years later, there's still the same sort of excitement I get from it. It's still fun to inhabit different characters and play different things, so it's all in that panoply of acting.
Quotation of Don Cheadle


In fifth grade I was Templeton the Rat in a production of 'Charlotte's Web'. I remember I had a friend who worked in a doughnut shop. I'd go in, get a doughnut and sit there with my script, going over the lines and making notes in the margin. I was serious!
Quotation of Don Cheadle


It's like Mars. It's another place. It's vast, it's stark, there's stone walls. People kind of said "well this is my property line". Why? "Well, cause I put a wall there".
