John Hurt Quotes / Quotations

Also the wonderful thing about film, you can see light at the end of the tunnel. You did realise that it is going to come to an end at some stage.
Quotation of John Hurt


As Beckett said, it's not enough to die, one has to be forgotten as well.
Quotation of John Hurt


I am not an enormous believer in research being the be-all and end-all. I get suspicious when I read about actors spending six months in a clinic, say, in order to play someone who is sick.
Quotation of John Hurt


I first decided that I wanted to act when I was 9. And I was at a very bizarre prep school at the time, to say high Anglo-Catholic would be a real English understatement.
Quotation of John Hurt


I have lots of favourite memories but I can't say that I have a favourite film.
Quotation of John Hurt


I left drama school and went straight into a 10-week film for which I was paid $75 I might say, which for 1962 was one heck of a lot of money.
Quotation of John Hurt


I loathed school. I don't have an academic mind, and besides I was so bored by my teachers! How teachers can take a child's inventiveness and say yes, yes, in that pontifical way of theirs, and smother everything!
Quotation of John Hurt


I mark a script like an exam, and I try not to do anything under 50 per cent. Similarly with the part. And also film is a peculiar thing, parts don't necessarily read in script form anything like as well as they can do when it comes to materialising.
Quotation of John Hurt


I never had any ambition to be a star, or whatever it is called, and I'm still embarrassed at the word.
Quotation of John Hurt


I never quite understand why we watch the news. There doesn't really seem much point watching somebody tell you what the news is when you could quite easily listen to it on the radio.
Quotation of John Hurt


I put everything I can into the mulberry of my mind and hope that it is going to ferment and make a decent wine. How that process happens, I'm sorry to tell you I can't describe.
Quotation of John Hurt


I remember once when I told Lindsay Anderson at a party that acting was just a sophisticated way of playing cowboys and Indians he almost had a fit.
Quotation of John Hurt


I think it would be very difficult to play somebody if they didn't think they had any virtues or redeeming characteristics.
Quotation of John Hurt


I think the director, John Huston, took on the picture because he's been trying to outdo his father, Walter Huston, and that's impossible. How do you cope with a genius? I couldn't communicate with my own father.
Quotation of John Hurt


I turn up in Los Angeles every now and then, so I can get some big money films in order to finance my smaller money films.
Quotation of John Hurt


I was keen on sports-that's how my nose got this way. It's not actually broken; the nose was just pushed up a little bit and moved over. It's an aquiline nose, quite Irish.
Quotation of John Hurt


I've spent a great deal of my life doing independent film, and that is partly because the subject matter interests me and partly because that is the basis of the film industry. That's where the filmmakers come from, it's where they start and sometimes its where they should have stayed.
Quotation of John Hurt


If I'm in theatre, cinema doesn't even cross my mind. Similarly when I'm making a film, theatre doesn't cross my mind.
Quotation of John Hurt


If you do an interview in 1960, something it's bound to change by the year 2000. And if it doesn't, then there's something drastically wrong.
Quotation of John Hurt


It would be difficult to have any unfulfilled ambitions because I don't have any ambitions. I've never been that kind of performer.
Quotation of John Hurt


It's an immensely competitive business, and I can tell you the older you get, the parts are fewer, and the people who are proven performers are greater.
Quotation of John Hurt


It's quite a dangerous career move to go wilfully on making films that may not find a distributor.
Quotation of John Hurt


My mother's father drank and her mother was an unhappy, neurotic woman, and I think she has lived all her life afraid of anyone who drinks for fear something like that might happen to her.
Quotation of John Hurt


My parents felt that acting was far too insecure. Don't ask me what made them think that painting would be more secure.
Quotation of John Hurt


My springboard is always the script. Even if the script is taken from a novel, I often haven't read the novel... .
Quotation of John Hurt


Nudes are the greatest to paint. Everything you can find in a landscape or a still life or anything else is there: darkness and light, character dimension, texture. I painted heads too, of course.
Quotation of John Hurt


Obviously, the arrogance of my own nature in regards to other people's work would suggest that I think I'm talented.
Quotation of John Hurt


Pretending to be other people is my game and that to me is the essence of the whole business of acting.
Quotation of John Hurt


When you're really working well with a director then you can be as outrageous as you like and so can he. And there's no worry about it.
Quotation of John Hurt
