Josh Brolin Quotes / Quotations

I used to go to Vegas and play the horses, and then I realised how ridiculous that was. There is no winning in gambling, but there is on the stock market.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


It takes me 10 minutes to get ready to go out, and that includes the shower.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


I got picked on a lot. I was a complete geek in school. I had braces. I didn't have the hot girlfriend. I wasn't ever sought after. I was a stocky, awkward kid who got laughed off the tennis court when I tried that.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


I have to tell you, you can't have an ego when you're an actor. A lot of actors have them, but in reality most of those people are just sensitive artists dying for a hug and a compliment.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


I love the competitive part of stocks. A lot of fear and greed, that's all it is. All I see is green and red.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


Suddenly, I'm in movies that people are excited about, and that is a nice change.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


George W. Bush brought a lot of minorities into his administration, which was a positive thing, and they had some issues that they wanted to press, but 9/11 really gave them direction. It gave them a purpose.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


The next couple of jobs will determine, at least from a business point of view, if I'm a guy who's actually the real thing or I'm a guy who's had a nice moment.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


You have to be okay with wins and losses. You can't just be looking for the wins and, when the losses happen, you can't buy more and more because you're sure it's going to bounce. We call that revenge trading.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


It's probably a bit of a power trip when you befriend somebody enough that they trust you to tell you things.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


When I was in jail I could only think about what the average person has to go through - the person who has no power to go to the press or no money to hire a lawyer.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


I gotta make money - it all tends to disappear in this field.

Quotation of Josh Brolin


I'm really, really lucky. I was given my dad's good genes.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


To complain now would be kind of sad. I like the way things are going.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


I've been given an amazing opportunity and I could not be more grateful. But I also know that all this will eventually die off. It's not real. It will go away and then you'll go away and then, I don't know, I'll be left sitting in some English hotel room.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


The only way change will ever happen is if we speak up, and we have to know that it actually has an impact. Because we have a lot more power than we think we do, I think.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


I covered my face because they had taken my wisdom teeth out.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


The last really expensive trip we took was so uncomfortable. It's so lazy. I want somebody to give me a great $30 massage as opposed to a bad $265 massage.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


I only took a high school acting class because there was no other class I wanted to take. I loved it, but I was always against acting as a profession. I didn't like the monetary fluctuations I saw.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


I remember at the premiere of my second movie I started crying. I thought, I'm so bad that I either have to stop this and do something else or learn what I'm doing.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


I was invited to a couple of races, but I was doing a play in New York.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


I'm very happy to be involved with great filmmakers.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


Football? Forget it. I didn't have that thing inside me where I wanted to smash against somebody and watch them break. I was too sensitive for that and disliked being that sensitive.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


Look, I'm going to take full advantage of this situation just because I love working with great filmmakers. But I've been around for a while, and I'm not going to play into the hype that I'm some great, you know, discovery.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


'W.' is not necessarily a political film, but it was sort of a contrasting reality for me to get into George W. Bush as a character because of how I felt about his administration before I started making the film.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


I'm so glad that show didn't go, because it was more work then I ever wanna do again, and I love film.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


The Coen Brothers didn't pitch the project to me, actually. I had read the book first without knowing that there was a movie being made. My agent actually called me and said they were making "No Country" and explained the script to me and said, "No, no. I read the book". She sent me a couple of scenes and then I said, "I can't get out of work". I was working with Robert Rodriguez on "Grindhouse" and Robert and Quentin Tarantino helped put me on tape as an audition tape and sent that to the Coens. They were smitten with the lighting and not so much for me. So that was a no. It was only through my agent, Michael Cooper, who is my good friend and a great agent. He's an old time agent; there are few and far between that actually care about their clients. He kept telling Ethan Coen, 'Just meet him. I'm not going to tell you he's the one but I'm going to tell you to just meet him'. I met them on what I found out later was their last casting call and then I got the part.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


On playing George W. Bush: Why me? Why would I want to do this movie? "Why would I want to do this to my career?
Quotation of Josh Brolin


When [Oliver Stone] came to me, I was a little insulted. I had such a visceral reaction against it. But then I read the script and I thought it was amazing. I didn't love the story but as a character - following a guy from 21 to 58 - was an incredible challenge for an actor.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


I wanted any job at that point. They had fired the initial guy and auditioned three other guys, and it came down to Johnny Depp and me. The network wanted me, the producer wanted Johnny. He and I were at his apartment hanging out; our girlfriends were best friends at the time. Johnny had just finished a small part in "Platoon" and was talking about what it meant for him to work for this great director, Oliver Stone. The phone rings, it's Johnny's agent. He listens, hangs up, stuffs his clothes into his "Platoon" duffel and just walks out. The next time I saw him, I was doing a guest role on the fourth episode of "21 Jump Street".
Quotation of Josh Brolin


I was so terrible in it. That was one of the movie experiences - along with "Hollow Man", a lot of years later - that made me question whether I should be doing something else. I don't want to watch myself in something like that. It's a travesty.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


This agent started sending me out, but I was so bad, I was told I probably shouldn't do this and that just because my dad was an actor didn't mean I was going to make it. It was horrible. On probably the 300th interview, this thing happened with Richard Donner and Steven Spielberg.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


I wouldn't know how to do it. I don't like the genre, and comedies are not fun to do. Everybody on the set gets so serious trying to figure out how to make the timing and jokes right. Ryan Reynolds is one guy who I think nobody can do that better than, and he doesn't get any fucking credit for it. I went back to see him three times in "The Proposal". I'm so gay.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


I'm a huge Donald Trump fan. I love who he is, what he's about. He's hated like any other celebrity is-like he's got the comb-over, he's an asshole, he's a capitalist, and capitalism is bad, right? I've met billionaires whose spirit is so dirty, their souls are so soot, shit and muck that it was mind-blowing to be in their presence. But that's not Donald Trump. People think I'm a left, left, left-leaning Democrat, but I'm a very conservative Democrat, more libertarian than anything.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


I remember saying no when a TV network wanted to give me a holding fee while it came up with another show for me. I got so much shit from my agent, everybody, including my family. Why are you turning this down? Who do you think you are? I'd just go off and hang out with my kids more or go do theater, which I liked but which didn't pay anything. I've heard "Who do you think you are?" so many times in my career for the sole reason that I just didn't want to do what somebody else thought I should do.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


For years, I'd thought about that show - could I actually do it - but then you do it and realize everybody's up all night writing the thing and you're given 60 scripts. You sit around a table trying to be good, but the more you want to be good the worse you are. A great experience but really, really tough.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


I was living in New York at the time and hanging out with this guy in Los Angeles. I was helping him with his audition (for the part of "Tony" in "Flirting with Disaster") and I ended up falling in love with the script and the character of "Tony" as well. To make a long story short - I ended up getting the part I was helping him get. Sorry to say I haven't seen him since.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


I would fucking wrack my brain like crazy trying to figure out which films I wanted to be in. Is this going to be good? Is this the right filmmaker? What other actors are involved? Where does it shoot? I'd ask myself all these questions rather then follow my instincts. There shouldn't be so many factors. Decisions should be based on two things: great script, great director. Period.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


Tommy's voice is like an elusive instrument somebody made up and nobody knows how to play. I never felt I nailed it.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


I like it right now, because I don't feel I've sold out. I feel good about the characters I'm playing and the movies I'm in. I've turned down a lot of 'event' films over the years. Money's neat, money's fun and when somebody's holding out their hands [full of cash], saying 'You want some? You want some?',there's a little bit of withdrawal when you say 'No'.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


It's like, Let's go this way, or Let's whisper the lines, and Let's actually take out all the lines and we'll do it like charades once. Or, You know, like hold him - put him on your shoulders and let's do the whole scene like that. He's all over the place. It's just absolute fucking chaos every day, all day. Which is great, 'cause you feel like you've done something.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


I did an audition for "The Fly II". I was living in New York at the time, and I went in there, and he's in a cocoon, transforming into a fly. So I walked in and started reading. You do the voice and you're like [choking sounds] you know, doing your thing. And I ended up on the floor, frothing at the mouth. I got back to my apartment and there was already a message on the machine from my agent that said, 'What the fuck did you do in there? You scared them'.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


For me, with a drama like this that's so laconic in its behavior, I kind of made an ass of myself on the set. A lot of Jason's direction was, 'Please stop moving and fucking around'.
Quotation of Josh Brolin


For twenty years I worked with a lot of people with not a massive amount of talent. And there was always ego, always fights. Working with the Coens - just kicking back a couch and watching them edit - they have two desks that are perpendicular, and Ethan is picking the best takes, and Joel is on the other desk, and when Ethan hits a bell - bing! - Joel looks up and he brings down the take and puts it in. I mean, it's such a simple, amazing process to watch.
