Al Pacino

The actor becomes an emotional athlete. The process is painful -- my personal life suffers.More Al Pacino [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You need some insecurity if you're an actor. It keeps the pot boiling. I haven't yet started to think about retiring. I was shocked when I heard about Paul Newman retiring at age 82. Most actors just fade away like old soldiers.More Al Pacino [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
My dad was in the army. World War II. He got his college education from the army. After World War II he became an insurance salesman. Really, I didn't know my dad very well. He and my mother split up after the war. I was raised by my maternal grandmother and grandfather, and by my mother.More Al Pacino [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
The hardest thing about being famous is that people are always nice to you. You're in a conversation and everybody's agreeing with what you're saying - even if you say something totally crazy. You need people who can tell you what you don't want to hear.More Al Pacino [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I don't think actors should ever expect to get a role, because the disappointment is too great. You've got to think of things as an opportunity. An audition's an opportunity to have an audience.More Al Pacino [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
When my mother got home from work, she would take me to the movies. It was her way of getting out, and she would take me with her. I'd go home and act all the parts. It had a tremendous influence on my becoming an actor.More Al Pacino [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
When I was doing 'Scarface,' I remember being in love at that time. One of the few times in my life. And I was so glad it was at that time. I would come home and she would tell me about her life that day and all her problems and I remember saying to her, look, you really got me through this picture because I would shed everything when I came home.More Al Pacino [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Money makes your life easier. If you're lucky to have it, you're lucky.More Al Pacino [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
It's never really that much fun for me to do movies anyway, because you - you know, you have to get up very early in the morning and you have to go in and you spend a lot of time waiting around.More Al Pacino [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
All due respect and trying to be as modest as I can be, I am a dancer. But I don't think I would be on 'Dancing with the Stars,' mainly because I would be too shy.More Al Pacino [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Vanity is my favourite sin.More Al Pacino [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It's easy to fool the eye but it's hard to fool the heart.More Al Pacino [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I was a kid when Dean came out. Dean was the inspiration. Even the red jacket he wore in 'Rebel Without a Cause,' you saw that red jacket popping up all over the place. He really reached people in a way; it was kind of a phenomenon when you think of it. I wonder what it would be like today, that kind of a person ... he made that connection with his audience. And I remember at that time my mother loved him. He reached everybody.More Al Pacino [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
My weaknesses... I wish I could come up with something. I'd probably have the same pause if you asked me what my strengths are. Maybe they're the same thing.More Al Pacino [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We start to realize that there are anodynes in life that help us through the day. I don't care if it's a walk in the park, a look out the window, a good bubble bath - whatever. Even a meal you like, or a friend you want to call. That helps us solve all this stuff in our head.More Al Pacino [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
My first language was shy. It's only by having been thrust into the limelight that I have learned to cope with my shyness.More Al Pacino [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I don't need bodyguards. I'm from the South Bronx.More Al Pacino [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I'd like to be remembered as the only man who lived to be 250 years old!More Al Pacino [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Scarface - first you get the money, then you power and then you get the womenMore Al Pacino [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
quality is higher, and the films we are choosing are ones that really found their audience in a massive way through DVD.More Al Pacino [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There is no happiness. There is only concentration.More Al Pacino [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I want to be a great actor someday, and I've decided there's no use philosophizing; the only way is to work at my craft.More Al Pacino [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It wasn't until I got older that I realized acting was something I could really do.More Al Pacino [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The thing is doing it, that's what it's all about. Not in the results of it. After all what is a risk? It's a risk not to take risks. Otherwise, you can go stale and repeat yourself. I don't feel like a person who takes risks. Yet there's something within me that must provoke controversy because I find it wherever I go. Anybody who cares about what he does takes risks.More Al Pacino [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Forget the career, do the work. If you feel what you are doing is on line and you're going someplace and you have a vision and you stay with it, eventually things will happen.More Al Pacino [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
