In this post, you will find great Stars Quotes from famous people, such as Saint Augustine, Walt Whitman, Al Pacino, Jocelyn Bell Burnell, Robbie Williams. You can learn and implement many lessons from these quotes.
People behavedifferently to TV stars and film stars; it’s to do with the scale of the medium. Film stars get hushed awe, TV stars get slapped on the back. Neither is good for you. Famous people don’t hear the word ‘no’ enough.
Those are the same stars, and that is the same moon, that look down upon your brothers and sisters, and which they see as they look up to them, though they are ever so far away from us, and each other.
For some people, you know, Garrison Keillor, Rush Limbaugh, really the stars, they’ve got a passion. They eat, drink and breatheradio, and I’m not like that. I used to think I wanted to be. But I need to be away from it, too, and that’s the difference, I think.
When you look at what we spend on entertainment, whether it’s on CDs, music, DVDs, there is so much money invested in that, people want to know a little more about the stars they’re paying to see or hear.
Some people work hard in this business and become really popular, really big stars but they never receive an award from within the business. Somehow, when your colleagues and friends believe in you to the point of handing you an award it means so much more.
During the 2012 Olympics, I decided to put on some cheesy pop because I knew Ellen White liked it. The first song was ‘Reach for the Stars’ by S Club 7, and before I knew it, everyone was singing it – suddenly it was our song.
At the Golden Globes, they put all the bigger stars in the front; the movie stars in the front, TV actors in the back. But even as a movie star, you can be outseated by a bigger star in any given year. It’s kind of hilarious. You have to take it in stride.
I believe that my whole creative life stemmed from this magic hour under the stars on that hilltop.
Ruth St. Denis
I’ve been obsessed with seeing life through music. My records, my relationship with records, my relationship with rock stars, everything that surrounds it, has been really one of the only ways that I ever started to understand the world.
I’m a good example of someone who can come to Hollywood and keep their feet on the ground with all the rock stars, all the drama that goes with being here. It’s still important to pump your own gas and to be able to vacuum.
I remember lying out in my bed and looking at the vast, quiet sky. Right up above my head, there were three stars in a row, and I remember thinking, ‘Well, I’ll have those three stars all my life, and wherever I am, they will be. They are my stars, and they belong to me.’
I confess, I do have to remind myself almostdaily that there are people on this earth capable of reading, writing, eating and dressing themselves who believe their lives are ruled from billions of miles away, by the stars – and, of course, the planets.
I didn’t know anything about movies or movie stars or the Academy or anything. I was just a blank sheet of paper. I was totallyignorant of all that stuff. I never went to the movies, didn’t know anything about the movies.
Oh, don’t let’s ask for the moon. We’ve already got the stars.
My favorite all-time artist… I would say, I think that must be Sigur Ros, I love that band. It’s like going to the stars for me. When I put the music from Jonsi or Sigur Ros on, it’s so relaxing, it’s warm and it never gets boring to listen to, you always hear new things. Yeah, that must be my favorite band.
There is nothing worse than when actors come to a set – and it happens a lot with big stars – and they are too aware of where the camera is. They are the show. And that becomesapparent and it affects the production. I am like ‘You should not know where the camera is – you should act, and I will do the rest.’
I think India is very passionate about films. It’s almost a second religion back home. Due to that, I think film stars are – are really held in great esteem. Not that we’re complaining, but I think with that comes a lot of responsibility.
Great actors are people who just meld into the part without calling attention to the fact that they are so-and-so doing this part. They may never become huge stars, but will always, in memory, stay respected actors.
My agent said, ‘Jerry, Dancing With the Stars – they want you on there.’ I said, ‘Ain’t no way. I’m not going to do that.’ Then he came back to me again, and he kept putting pressure on me. I said, ‘All right, I’ll give it a try.’
I know I’m not a coalminer, but I do long hours and I never complain, and there is nowhere else I’d rather be. So, yeah, that’s how I’d define myself. I want to do it right, and prove people wrong once and for all about the myth of child stars.
It’s really important for women in the public eye to be open – these pop stars who don’t look, behave, speak like real women – that’s not fair on women. Being real, honest, authentic – too many women in the public eye are afraid to be authentic because they are afraid they will be judged.
A lot of very, very big stars were going down and not being seen or heard from again. Kirk took a huge chance in putting a blacklisted writer’s name on the screen and somehow or other, he survived it, like he survives everything.
Chris Paul is one of the brightest stars in the National Basketball Association, a must-see player with the New Orleans Hornets whose deft ball skills and eye-popping speed have attracted admirers all over the world.
When I began my career as a flight attendant, I was a 21-year-old with a B.A. in English and stars in her eyes. I wanted to see every city in the world. I wanted to have adventures that, I hoped, would fuel a writing career some day.
It was inevitable at some point that I would bump into one of my father’s plays. The reality of the situation is that I’m a jobbing actor, and any actor would give their eye-teeth to have one of those roles. It’s a no-brainer! I’m pleased the stars have aligned around ‘Arcadia.’
There are at least as many galaxies in our observable universe as there are stars in our galaxy.
It all depended on the cut. Some of them were really on the ship. Some were really on the set. Like if they had the stars for a week, the stars coming off, that was usually on the set, except if we were on location for that particular show.
I’m not somebody who gets teared up or anything, but I still look up at the stars, and it gives me hope, and it gives me energy. I think one of the things that we have to think about it is, we are all a part of this universe.
When, according to habit, I was contemplating the stars in a clear sky, I noticed a new and unusual star, surpassing the other stars in brilliancy. There had never before been any star in that place in the sky.
Nobody’s life is a bed of roses. We all have crosses to bear, and we all just do our best. I would never claim to have the worst situation. There are many widows, and many people dying of AIDS, many people killed in Lebanon, people starving all over the planet. So we have to count our lucky stars.
My dream was to become a big player in Europe. But most of the stars there are either from Europe or places like Brazil and Argentina. How many come from Edmonton, where you’re only supposed to play hockey? None. So yeah, I had a lot of doubts. I wondered if I had gone as far as I could.
You know, they just don’t make big movie stars the way they used to, maybe because the system has changed, the studio system, but it’s sad to see people like Jimmy Stewart go, all the giants of the past.
Of all the stars whom I worked with, I think Steve knew better what worked for him on the screen than any other. He had such a sense of what he could register, and that helped a lot in terms of shaping the character and the script.
I had a big problem working with stars, because they are too expensive and have too many demands. Their names help you raise the money to make the movie, but then they demand close-ups. They change things. You end up doing things at their service instead of servicing the film.
When people discuss religion, it is a pity that they often become excited and argue. We should merely listen, as one does on a dark night; we should merely gaze at the stars.
A typical neuron makes about ten thousand connections to neighboring neurons. Given the billions of neurons, this means there are as many connections in a single cubic centimeter of brain tissue as there are stars in the Milky Way galaxy.
Stars are rarecreatures, and not everyone can be one. But there isn’t anyone on earth – not you, not me, not the girl next door – who wouldn’t like to be a movie star holding up that gold statuette on Academy Award night.
I was a little girl who grew up idolizing musical-theatre stars.
The biggest crime in England is to rise above your station. It’s fine to be a pop star. ‘Oh, it’s great, lots of fun, aren’t they sweet, these pop stars! But to think you have anything to say about how the world should work? What arrogance!’
I’m not going to get somewhere and say, ‘OK, I’m done.’ Success is never final; I’ll just keep on going. The same way as failure never being fatal. Just keep going. I’m going to the stars and then past them.
I really believe that’s one of the many reasons that God had put me right in the middle of the Backstreet Boys. There are so many stars today that don’t realize the impact they have on young people. Being a superstar is great, as long as you can be a positive role model.
What goes on inside a star is better understood than one might guess from the difficulty of having to look at a little dot of light through a telescope, because we can calculate what the atoms in the stars should do in most circumstances.
Maybe we should have known that night in Denver that things that begin with plywood Greekcolumns and artificial smoke typically don’t end well. Maybe the Hollywood stars and the glamour blinded us a little: you thought it was the glare, some of us thought it was a halo.
When you want a break from dogs, and you take them to the kennel to the stars, no one thinks you’re a bad pet owner. But when you have kids, you can’t drop them off for three weeks without someone calling Child ProtectiveServices!
For me the ideal date would be to drink wine in the backyard under the stars, listen to music and just talk. Then we’d eat steak and, later, dessert. If all went as planned, we’d save some of the dessert and play with it while making out.
There have been many cases in which stars have come to us first to break the news because they knew the pressure was on. They wanted to have it on the air so that they could give their honest evaluation of the situation.
People who look down never get much of an idea of the sky where the stars are set. And the fellow who doesn’t hitch at least one or two of his wagons to a star never gets very high up. Get your eyes off the ground. Look ahead.
Personality is essential. It is in every work of art. When someone walks on stage for a performance and has charisma, everyone is convinced that he has personality. I find that charisma is merely a form of showmanship. Movie stars usually have it. A politician has to have it.
Kiefer Sutherland is a crazy jerk on ’24,’ but you love him because he gets the job done. And I think that that goes for a lot of action stars, I mean Steven Segal is a jerk, but you want to watch him because, eventually, he’s a jerk who can beat up bad people.
When I see someone in a military uniform I make it a point to approach them, shake their hand and say five words… ‘thank you for your service.’ ‘Stars Earn Stripes’ is a high energy, fun, action show, but at its heart it is all about those five words.
When I did ‘Dancing with the Stars’ I did lose an awful lot of weight and I think at the time everybody was sort of alarmed by it. You can eat anything and it is still dropping off you when you are doing that amount of exercise.
We’ve accounted for 95 percent of all the stars in the Milky Way. The other 5 percent are big, bright stars – the kind that dominate the night sky, but are lamentably both rare and short-lived. If biology‘s your thing, you can forget those guys.
Ethel Merman would stay with a show for years and tour with it. So would Mary Martin, the great stars. They recognized the value of that success and nurtured it. Now, you come from Hollywood, you play 12 weeks and go away. I don’t think that’s the best policy.
It’s funny how the ruthless, murderous gangster has really been romanticized by the media. I mean, I grew up watching the ‘Godfathers’ and ‘Scarface,’ and they were the coolest. They’re just really interesting stories with great characters. They’re rock stars.
It always annoys me when stars grumble about fans coming up to them in the street. I love it. These young stars today with all their airs and graces, they need to remember it is an honour and a privilege to make money from acting. How hard is it?
Not taboo – it’s just that straight actors still risk their careers commercially and economically. They have to please the crowd – they’re movie stars; their image is their industry. It goes beyond acting.
I think you should make more movies, more musicals. I think the public deserves that. I think this country deserves to be able to get out and foster that talent. Give them an opportunity to become stars. I think the whole idea is wonderful.
I think it’s particularly fun not being a full-time showbiz reporter because you still have the ‘Oh, wow!’ factor when you go out on the red carpet and there are these big stars that are standing there. But if you’re doing this day in and day out, it becomes a little blase.
I was never a singer; I can’t play any instruments; I had no training. Plus, I was brought up in a time when all the great rock stars were male. I didn’t have any template for what I was doing. I did what I did out of frustration and concern.
There are so many venues in which stars are exposed today, that we just know much more and the studios don’t have the control over stars like they used to, in the 30s, 40s, and 50s.
I’ve never written a movie, I’m not in the movie business. I go out to L.A. and I’m like everyone else wandering around in a daze hoping I see movie stars. I write the novels that the movies are based on, and that feels like enough of a job for me.
My go to karaoke song is ‘Stars’ from ‘Les Mis’, which is Javert’s song. And it’s super strange, and every time it comes on people are really weirded out, but that’s what I do.
June Diane Raphael
Our flag honors those who have fought to protect it, and is a reminder of the sacrifice of our nation‘s founders and heroes. As the ultimate icon of America’s storied history, the Stars and Stripes represents the very best of this nation.
In the days of Gary Cooper, James Stewart etc, film stars personified the better aspects of human nature.
My homies that are around me never give me that ‘star pass.’ I’ve hung out with some stars who are playing basketball and everyone let’s them score all the baskets. Shooting pool, they let them make all the shots. My homies don’t let me get away with that.
I’m trying to build a strong business. I want to create new stars, new shows and new products for my audience and create a legacy that outlives me. There are so many other ways I want to reach women besides doing a talk show.
I love Salma Hayek; we’ve been friends for a really long time. I admire how she has come such a long way and always remainedgrounded and who she is. She never compromises to follow her vision, and she is loyal. Such qualities only mark the great stars.
We can now have action movies with two stars where one might be African American and one might be Asian American. One of them doesn’t have to be white, and the other one doesn’t have to be the ethnicsidekick. We’re way over that. And I think it’s happening in society, too.
I grew up in Bulgaria in a small city on the Black Sea Coast, so I was very interested in the sea, marine life, and everything related to it. But it was also a very dark place at night, so I could see the stars. And I just got very interested in it.
Children need teachers who have stars in their eyes themselves and who treat them with respect.
There were no bigger stars in the new evangelism than the Bakkers.
Kathie Lee Gifford
I’ve learned 90 percent of what I know from watching and listening to actors. A good leading actor is the rock of the show. Their energy and their tone really sets the groundwork for how everything is going to work. I’ve been lucky to deal with stars who are very giving and generous.
I don’t think I would be a good actor! People enjoyed ‘Dancing With the Stars’ because I was myself, and every time they told me to say something, I would say my own words, so I don’t think I could follow a script well!
It’s rumored that doing well in real estate is to be able to close a deal. I did not find that to be the case for myself, I was probably the worst closer out there and I didn’t find that was true of my top super stars either.
I was completely with the reality TV boom for a while. I really liked a lot of the reality TV, and the one that lost me was the ballroom dancing one they do, ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ That was the one where I watched it and I was perplexed. I thought it was really boring.
I was 18 when I did ‘The Amanda Show,’ and I was 19 when I did ‘MadTV,’ and I was in way over my head. I was just sort of a goof who could do impressions of WB stars – speaking of the Dawson Van Der Beek era – and it was overwhelming. I don’t think I’ve learned more faster in my life than when I worked on ‘MadTV.’
It’s in my stars to invent; I was born on Madame Curie’s birthday. I have this need for originals, for innovation. That’s why I like CharlieParker.
I like to consider myself a star – a star, that when you look in the sky, it’s always there. And on a clear night… a shooting star comes by, and get a little thrill, and you make a little wish. You need both types of stars, the shooting and the constant stars. The heavens include them all.
I cannot possiblyconceive of my planet Earth as the centre of a three-tiered universe. I know rather that the sun, around which my planet Earth revolves, is a middle sized star in a galaxy called the Milky Way that has over a hundred billion other suns or stars within it.
My grandfather was a really, really tough no-nonsense factory worker who emigrated from Ireland in about 1900 to Bridgeport, Conn. He had a big effect on me. Those guys who took a great leap out into what they knew not were the ones who were the real stars, the real heroes.
Right now, there could well be messages from the stars flying right through this room. Through you and me. And if we had the right receiver set up properly, we could detect them. I still get chills thinking about it.
Some people had fathers who were bankers or farmers, my father made films, that’s how I saw it. As for the movie stars, they were just around, some of them were friends, others weren’t, it was all just a part of my everyday life.
Walking down the red carpet, suddenly I felt very special and different. All the flashlights from cameras and requesting voices from the media, the scene, it was just like what I remembered seeing on TV or a movie when I was a little girl – the scene only when movie stars appeared.
Forget all the bars and schmoozing and everybody checking out everybody else. My ideal date would be to park in a dark place, check out the stars, and have a great conversation. When all else fails, you can just make out.
To pursue a career in Hollywood you have to have a personality bypass. Look at the top 20 stars in the world – there’s probably only two actors among them. Hollywood’s not about you as an actor. It’s about your currency, what you ‘bring to the table’. And I’ve never been one to jump through hoops for anyone.
When I was a kid, I thought movie stars were women and men who were in these great films that we still look at now. But I don’t think there are too many films coming out these days that we’re going to look at in the future and say, ‘This is one of the great ones.’
I think ‘Twilight‘ was such a phenomenon that it will be awhile before anything like that will happen again. Cause it really influencedpop culture, and the stars of it – well, the people who became stars out of it – their lives were completely changed.
‘The X Factor’ seems to be more about building up personalities and people in tears. And it’s not a new idea. The pre-Beatles pop world was full of manufactured pop stars. The thing is that you can’t imagine any of the artists you look back at and admire ever going on ‘The X Factor.’
The reality is that we know that this universe, that our galaxy, has billions of stars. We know that stars have planets. So the likelihood that there is life somewhere else to me is just absolutely there.
When you record an album and it goes platinum… yeah, you’re in the studio and you work hard for months, but it’s not like your whole body hurts. Maybe you get a little hoarse and tired. But on ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ everything hurts.
In some sense, what you might have suspected from the first day of high-school chemistry is true: The periodic table is a colossalwaste of time. Nine out of every 10 atoms in the universe are hydrogen, the first element and the major constituent of stars. The other 10 percent of all atoms are helium.
The irony of that is, what makes it kind of ironic, is when you do become successful as a professional athlete in particular, a lot of the young children who are emulating these stars do have a different perspective.
The fact that I fell in love with Meghan so incredibly quickly was sort of confirmation to me that all the stars were aligned; everything was just perfect. It was this beautiful woman just sort of literally tripped and fell into my life; I fell into her life.
I’m a big soccer fan, so any soccer player that I meet, I always get star struck. I’ve met a lot of big stars – Justin Timberlake, Michael Buble – and I don’t ever get starstruck, but when I met famous ex-football players, I just got completely starstruck.
There have to be reasons that you get up in the morning and you want to live. Why do you want to live? What’s the point? What inspires you? What do you love about the future? If the future does not include being out there among the stars and being a multi-planet species, I find that incredibly depressing.
It was this feeling the whole time like I shouldn’t be here among all these stars and professionals. I was trying to keep my distance because I wanted to watch everyone. But they want you to feel at home and be part of it, and it became normal very quickly.
Stars work because of familiarity. They fill theatres because audiences know who they are. There is a brand equity. But there are films strong enough to not need stars, or films that should not be made with stars at all, where only fresh faces will do. So I make the decisionsaccordingly.
There are a lot of stars I’ve worked with – big stars – who, when they walk on set, the energy just changes.
They go on about banning size zero, but I think Hollywood stars are the worst perpetrators. Most models are naturally long and gangly, while a lot of these young girls in Hollywood have gone on extreme diets. Their concave chests and bony arms are terrifying. It’s scary to think that normal teenagers are tempted to copy them.
The thing I remember most about space is the view from the spacewalk. When I was inside the space shuttle and looking through the window, you can see the earth and the stars, and it’s very beautiful, but it’s like looking at an aquarium, sort of. When you go outside and spacewalk, you become a scubadiver.
Michael J. Massimino
We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle.
If you look closely, there is no book more visual than Three TrappedTigers, in that it is filled with blank pages, dark pages, it has stars made of words, the famous magicalcube made of numbers, and there is even a page which is a mirror.
Love knows not distance; it hath no continent; its eyes are for the stars.
I don’t want to be famous or recognizable. I don’t want to be critiqued about the way that I look on the Internet… I’ve been writing pop songs for pop stars for a couple years and see what their lives are like, and that’s just not something I want.
When I was younger, I used to look at movie stars with pencil-thin noses and think about a nose job. I’ve got a grown-upbaby nose; it’s not chiseled and structured. Then I saw how beautiful Audrey Tatou was in ‘Amelie’ and thought, ‘She’s got a nose like mine, and if she can have a baby nose, so can I.’
In those simpler days, you could just take pictures of movie stars and show them the way they were, as normal human beings. And if I felt part of any movement at the time, it was just to do that – to be journalistic and photograph what is, rather than what is made up.
I’ve been watching ‘Pawn Stars’ every week for the last year. I like learning about the history behind the items that people bring into the pawnshop. I actually pawned a ring once that a woman sent to me while I was on ‘Jerry Springer.’ It was really gaudy.
My favourite actors are all dead or dying. I just love Jimmy Stewart, Bette Davis, Katharine Hepburn – I was named after her – and Cary Grant. I just love old black and white movies and the stars in them. It must have been a great time to be in Hollywood.
I could care less if it’s Mick Jagger or the man on the street. I just like interesting people, and I happen to know a lot of stars.
I’ve read that a naked eye can see six thousand stars in the hundred billion galaxies, but I couldn’t believe it, what with the sky white with starlight. I saw a million stars with one eye and two million with both.
William Least Heat-Moon
A face that is really lovely in repose can fall apart if, when its owner stars to talk, she distorts every feature.
Somehow, stars have a lot of class if they are done right; they never have a shelf life.
Doing that, then doing a lot of theater, which I love. Doing guest stars, did two independent films that are going around to all these festivals. Both of them are going to be at the Lake Tahoe Film Festival.
I mean, I’ve sold all these scripts and nothing’s been made. Studios have closed, stars have died. I had a director find Jesus. And the pictures just don’t get made.
There’s a lot of cruelty going on all the time, and I’m not just talking about inter-human cruelty. I’m talking about whole species becomingextinct, asteroids hitting planets, black holes gobbling up stars.
The fixed stars signify the angel in man. That is why man orients himself by them; and that is why women have no appreciation for the starry sky; because they have no sense of the angel in man.
The principal reason for the universe’s poker face is that its constituents are far away. Stars careen through space, and galaxies spin at speeds thousands of times faster than a jet plane. But given their distance, you’d need the patience of Job to notice much change in their appearance or position.
From what I’ve been able to determine, many of our big stars are addicted to tobacco. They want to smoke in movies for the same reason I smoked as I wrote, which is that they think their performance is going to be better.
You can be the moon and still be jealous of the stars.
Rookies are also coming in from college programs as big stars, whereas when we came in, we were just happy to be there. We were happy to be playing in a big gym, to be on television, to be playing in America.
Stars have always been very good at what they do. They are born and blessed with charisma and power over the entire nation. One glimpse of a star makes people go berserk. Such magic cannot be created. You are born with it – or not.
If we incline our wills in true earnest singleness to God, then we go with Christ out of this world, out from the stars and elements, and enter into God; for in the will of reason we are children of the stars and elements, and the spirit of this world ruleth over us.
The point at which we worked with some of these actors, they weren’t really stars yet. Nicolas Cage was not a big star when we did RaisingArizona. A lot of these people were also virtually unknown, too, when we worked with them first.
Shoot for the moon – if you miss you‘ll end up in the stars.
In Hollywood, for me, it’s all about the movie stars and the singers. Baseball players don’t draw too much attention; we’re low key. I’m good with faces and sometimes bad with names, but I’ll walk up to somebody if I know who they are… show them some love.
Estimates are that at least 70 per cent of all stars are accompanied by planets, and since the latter can occur in systems rather than as individuals (think of our own solar system), the number of planets in the Milky Way galaxy is of order one trillion.
And New York is the most beautiful city in the world? It is not far from it. No urban night is like the night there… Squares after squares of flame, set up and cut into the aether. Here is our poetry, for we have pulled down the stars to our will.
Never think you can’t do something. I definitely never thought I could write a book, and even after I started writing it, I was like, ‘Oh my God, how am I gonna write a book?’ Just set your sights high and reach for the stars. Go live your dreams, and never think you can’t.
It has been discovered that all the world is made of the same atoms, that the stars are of the same stuff as ourselves. It then becomes a question of where our stuff came from. Not just where did life come from, or where did the earth come from, but where did the stuff of life and of the earth come from?
