Michael Pitt Quotes / Quotations

Personally, I'm very classic. If I'm going to wear a suit, it's going to be classic, black, and fit very well. There's nothing like it.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


It sounds cliche, but success is your friends, your family, what you do, and if you're happy when you wake up.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


A kid now can practically record a song or edit a short film on his way to school. I think that will produce, perhaps, more less-interesting things - or you'll have to search more to find the interesting things. But I also think it's exciting.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


I'm not prejudiced about what type of movies I'm in, what form they take or whether they're studio or independent. I just want to make films that are going to be good. The main reason is not to make money, although at some points it's really difficult when you're broke.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


I think Van Sant is the most important American director we have. He takes the most risks. He's just pure to me.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


There are directors who, their direction is high, but then when you challenge it, it crumbles. They can't back up what they're asking.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


'Dawson's Creek' was my introduction to the industry. It put some money in my pocket and it put me in the position I wanted to be in, where I could audition for projects that I wanted to be a part of. I didn't find it creatively fulfilling in any way, though. Working with artists excites me, but 'Dawson's Creek' didn't do that.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


'Boardwalk' begins literally on the first day of Prohibition, which I think was a wonderful way to start - to have the story kind of come out of this massive historical phenomenon. And the more I researched the '20s, the more I discovered just how interesting it was.

Quotation of Michael Pitt


I feel that film, as opposed to theatre, is about capturing that one, real moment.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


I'm doing a record that has a story that runs through all of the songs, and then there is also a film that goes along with it.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


When actors give their input, it can be very ego-driven, and directors are scared of that.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


There are two kinds of directors: There's the kind where two plus two equals four, and you have to help them figure it out. And then there's the kind that throws you in a room, locks the door, sets the house on fire and films it.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


Different films have different places in people's lives. I don't get to see a lot of films, so I want to watch films I learn from.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


I don't have a lot of time to surf the net and see what everyone's wearing.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


Acting is really scary, but it's also challenging, fun, hard work. There's always an element of improvisation with every actor, even when something is really scripted.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


'Boardwalk' has kind of exposed me to a different demographic. And it upped my skills in terms of the speed with which I can prep a scene, and I'm excited to apply that.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


I don't get to see a lot of films, so I want to watch films I learn from.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


I think in some ways you learn more from the things you don't like than the things you do.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


People don't want to be plagued by not knowing-they want answers.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


All these directors who do different locations forget that one room can be shot from a million different angles and a million different ways. When I direct a movie, I'm going to use that.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


Well, the first thing I wanted to be was a carpenter. Then I wanted to be a painter and then a singer. It was when I first saw 'Lawrence of Arabia' that I wanted to be an actor.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


[on "The Dreamers"]: I was nervous for the sex scenes. It's tough for an American actor, because it can be looked upon very badly. It's a serious risk to take in your career. It's risky with the studios and with the American public. It's looked down upon in American culture at a serious level. It could be perceived not as work but as pornography. Every time I was nervous about it, I would remind myself that possibly I was going to be a part of something that was going to change those attitudes. I don't agree with those values at all. It's totally fine showing someone getting their head blown off in America and you can't show the human body. I think that shows something about the culture.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


I just do movies I like. I mean, I do movies I would want to go see.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


You know, people want someone to tell them the answer. They want a friend, or a teacher, or a parent, but above all I guess they just want to know. And the truth is you can't tell them, and that's a hard thing to deal with. And it's easy to get wrapped up in the idea that this person knows, that he will tell me what I need to know, what I need to live, because he means a lot to me.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


Movie stars get paid these ridiculous amounts of money, I don't know if they deserve it. But I think what they're really getting paid for is not the work but all the other stuff.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


There's this double standard with nudity. You can show a woman's full anatomy, but it's threatening and uncomfortable with guys. Gay, straight, bi or whatever, these particular people who run the country are afraid to see the beauty in things that aren't necessarily what they think is right or whatever.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


(On getting fired as an extra on Flawless) I was there with my friends and they wanted these two punk rock guys to be standing in this elevator while Robert De Niro ran in, or something. Joel Schumacher picked us, which meant we were going to get paid like two or three hundred dollars more, which at that time meant that we had our rent for the month, so it was a big deal. We were standing in the East Village with all the extras, next to a prostitute and a little person, talking about the money we were going to get. So someone-one of the extras-had a really great idea and said, "We should celebrate," and they sparked up a joint. So we're standing there on the corner in front of this church and we're smoking a joint and we're excited, then all of a sudden five undercover cops came out of nowhere and threw us against the wall and they started arresting us. And so they're handcuffing us as Joel Schumacher walks by, and we're like, "Look, we'll be out in twenty-four hours and we can be right back here tomorrow." As the cops were pulling us into the car, he was just sort of like, "That's it-sorry, boys." So we asked the cops if we could at least sign the waiver so we could be paid for the day's work, and they said no and took us to jail.
Quotation of Michael Pitt


(On landing Boardwalk Empire) They sent me the pilot and I read it and I started working on it. I went to a big casting call, where you wait in the waiting room and you put the scene down on tape, and they called me a month later. I had been in California trying to find a job and I met with [Boardwalk producer] Terry Winter, and when I came back they said I could audition for Marty [Scorsese]. I was a bit nervous, and before I went in for the audition I got dressed up-put on a suit and stuff-because it was 1920s-and I went in and I met Marty, who was staying at the Waldorf-Astoria. He had been kind of homeless for a while and he was staying in this giant suite, and I went in and we talked and I did this scene, and he said, "That's good, but you should do it angrier," and so I did, but he said, again, "That's good, but I think a bit more angry," so I did it again even angrier and asked, "So is that good?" and he said, "Yeah, more angry!" So I went to the corner of the room and started screaming at the top of my lungs, "You motherfucker!" and punching the wall. I asked him, "Is that good?" and he said, "I think it's a good place to start."
