Favorite Quotes from Steve Buscemi

“Character actors just pile up the credits because you work on a movie for like a few days. It’s not like I’m the lead in everything I do – far from it. I’m not spending three or four months on a picture; I’m spending three or four weeks. Sometimes three or four days.” – Steve Buscemi

“Whenever you do something that is in a continuous take, and something that we’re not used to doing because it was all in the details of if you don’t make one move seem natural it can give away all of it.” – Steve Buscemi

“I’ve always loved comedy and growing up it was the comedies that I really responded to. So I don’t know how it turned out that once I started acting that I started getting a certain kind of role, that I never saw myself as growing up, so I really love when I get an opportunity to play a [comedian] role.” – Steve Buscemi

“I don’t tend to think of the characters I play like losers. I like the struggles that people have, people who are feeling like they don’t fit into society, because I still sort of feel that way.” – Steve Buscemi

“We both [with Jo Andres] think that it is really important to our culture that we support all kinds of music, all kinds of theatre and all kinds of art because you never know what moves people. We’ve always believed that there should be a strong voice outside the commercial world. Certainly, the commercial world has a huge place in our culture and we also support that – but, we also want to support the stuff that lives outside of that.” – Steve Buscemi
