Matthew Lillard Quotes / Quotations

Quotation of Matthew Lillard

Quotation of Matthew Lillard


I like doing family films.
Quotation of Matthew Lillard


Being onstage is like being rock star. Whereas if you're doing a movie, it's such a confined space. You know, you do a comedy, it's so hard, too, 'cause with a comedy, there's no vocal reaction, there's no energy that you get back that spurs you on to be funnier because everyone has to be quiet.
Quotation of Matthew Lillard


I think one of the main reason's Rick Rosenthal and Whitewater PIctures decided to 'get in bed with me' on 'Fat Kid' was because I came in with a strong business plan as well as a creative vision on how to make the film.
Quotation of Matthew Lillard


Now, more then ever, we have the ability to make films for almost nothing and that's broken down all barriers of entry. I think it's a new golden age of film-making. With that, there needs to be the ability to recoup investment dollars, people need to make money.
Quotation of Matthew Lillard


Thing is, I'm a funny actor, but I'm not good at being funny. I'm going to ramble for a second: I'm an actor who can make things funny in the moment, like in stakes or in circumstances or out of character.
Quotation of Matthew Lillard


I got into a bad jag of movies that helped pay the rent and I thought would help further me along.
Quotation of Matthew Lillard


So much of Hollywood is about who the people you work with are.
Quotation of Matthew Lillard


Hollywood used to be run by artists and people who loved artists... people who wanted to make movies for all the right reasons. For the love. The Art. To tell stories. Yes to make money as well, but it was about both. Now I feel, it's mostly about bottom line and making money.
Quotation of Matthew Lillard


Somehow, someway, you get kind of labeled this guy who was in a Freddie Prinze Jr. movie too many. And Freddie Prinze Jr. - it's not his fault, either - it's just these are the things that happen. I'm not a George Clooney; I don't have a ton of opportunities.
Quotation of Matthew Lillard


Something like 'Without a Paddle' does really well at the box office and I'm like, 'Oh, here we go.' In 'Without a Paddle' I'm the romantic lead - great! A comedy and that's what America wants. Then it did nothing for me and I went into kind-of a work abyss. I just didn't get another shot.
Quotation of Matthew Lillard


Character actors are becoming a thing of the past. They're just going by the wayside. They're just cutting through that caliber of acting.
Quotation of Matthew Lillard


I always think that I'm the best thing in a lot of bad movies. Personally, I have to. I think that I like me as an actor.
Quotation of Matthew Lillard


There are several times when I walked into a room and just felt like such a sham. That's the problem with auditioning.
Quotation of Matthew Lillard


How much do you have to pay someone to be in a George Clooney/Alexander Payne film? Nothing! Because everyone in the world wants to be a part of it. Therefore you pay nothing. And that continues until you become something they need... I'm not that kind of actor. I'm blue collar and very replaceable.
Quotation of Matthew Lillard


You just realize that at the beginning of 'Scooby' you're just going to start at level ten and stay at ten the entire time. It's hard. It physically beats you up. It's definitely one of the hardest movies you can do.
Quotation of Matthew Lillard


I was like, what the hell is my life coming to? I'm a trained actor! I've done Shakespeare and here I am having farting contests with an imaginary dog!
Quotation of Matthew Lillard


[on directing versus acting and directing his first film] - I think that that's [directing] a way more exciting way to live your life... Being an actor, you have to memorize a page of dialogue, and you hit a mark and you say the line with honesty and energy and hopefully it works. Being a director is so much more fulfilling. You just have so much more input, you have more avenues to tell a story, and the experience overall to me was such a life-changing event. If it was up to me, I would never act again and direct for the rest of my life to be honest.
Quotation of Matthew Lillard
