Look at guys like Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers. Those guys have great arms, but people talk about them more as a quarterbacks and the intellectual side of the game and how they really dissect defenses – and then the arm is something else that helps them with that.

It drives me crazy when guys making $30 million are complaining about playing basketball two days in a row.

When I used to fight in the amateurs, guys wouldn’t show up for the finals and I won the tournament. They wouldn’t call my name when it was time to get the trophy. They called everyone else‘s name.

Guys that are competitive and love to play the game of football and love their teammates, you can’t have enough of those guys on your team.

I think at this point in my life, I’d like to play more good guys than bad guys.
The American cinema in general always made stories about working-class people; the British rarely did. Any person with my working-class background would be a villain or a comic cipher, usually badly played, and with a rotten accent. There weren’t a lot of guys in England for me to look up to.
I don’t know; it just seemed like the cooler guys are playing Xbox. At least the ones I know.
People like crap. It doesn’t matter. I think if you have a big mouth and you perform so-so, it is what it is. People are going to notice you more. Nice guys come last. Let’s say it like that.
I think the other guys, they have advantage to me when they play with six or eight racquets in one match.
Help young people. Help small guys. Because small guys will be big. Young people will have the seeds you bury in their minds, and when they grow up, they will change the world.

A lot of guys go, ‘Hey, Yog, say a Yogi-ism.’ I tell ’em, ‘I don’t know any.’ They want me to make one up. I don’t make ’em up. I don’t even know when I say it. They’re the truth. And it is the truth. I don’t know.
Can I jump over two or three guys like I used to? No. Am I as fast as I used to be? No, but I still have the fundamentals and smarts. That’s what enables me to still be a dominant player.

My guiltiest pleasure? ‘Untamed & Uncut’. Videos of people being attacked by animals. Yeah. I don’t know why.

It’s a wild animal, my friend.
It’s important to have girlfriends, because guys tend to come and go.
The great ones have the ability to focus and tune everything else out and see more than the others. Average quarterbacks have tunnel vision. They see what’s in front of them. The better you get, the more that tunnel expands, and the more guys on the field you see.
What I look for are guys that work hard, have a great work ethic and embrace that underdog mentality a little bit. And certainly there is no substitute for toughness.
I grew up in Chillum Heights in the Washington, D.C. area., and it was never a garden spot. When guys go, ‘Hey, when I grew up, my neighborhood was tough, and it was this and that’… the reality is that it was just a terribly sad place. And thank God, I was able to escape it.
Too bad integration didn’t come sooner, because there were so many ballplayers that could have made the major leagues. That’s why, you look back, and – not to take away anything from Babe Ruth or some of those other guys – they didn’t play against the greatest ballplayers in the world.
WWE prepares you for everything in entertainment. It’s the truth. You need a host? Get a WWE Superstar. You need someone for an action movie, a comedy movie, a drama movie, you get a WWE Superstar. Because these guys are the most well-versed, well-trained, and hardest working guys out there.
That’s what happens when they give guys like me a television show: you try and get toys and Garbage Pail Kids!

I’m trained in mixed martial arts. I started when I was 14 and did my first competition at 18. It was a grappling competition against all guys a weight category above me, and I got first place.
It feels nice to be loved, but let me tell you there are 10 times more better looking, stylish and talented guys than me. So there’s no solid reason for me to be proud! I don’t think I have done anything extraordinary to change people’s lives.
The guys who beat me didn’t get 1,000 rebounds. I did. It’s not my fault the other guys didn’t play as many games.
I feel like the so-called bad guys are never totally bad. I guess it’s the closest thing I can do to reality: people act nice but nobody really is nice. We all have to balance that with something dark.
My favorite movie is ‘The Outlaw Josey Wales‘ with Clint Eastwood, a guy who gets his family killed by the bad guys then goes on a journey of revenge, eventually discovering himself – very existential.
Some guys like to fight on even playing grounds, and some guys like to cheat.
I grew up listening to the Hot Boys, with Lil Wayne and all those guys.
Some guys may play around and say a couple of things, but if I say it, I mean it. I may laugh, it may be funny, but if I say I’m going to get you, I’m going to get you.
There’s not one thing that inspires me the most. Me and my friends joke around with each other and hang out so much that whatever makes us laugh really hard makes it into ‘Workaholics.’ But the characters that I think are funny are guys that are confidently stupid.
Guys are idiots, till they’re what, 40 years old.
Some guys, first pitch of the at-bat gets called a strike – maybe it’s a ball off or below their knees, and it gets called a strike – and then the next two pitches, they swing at balls in the dirt, and all of a sudden, they’re yelling at the umpire about that first pitch. You just swung at two balls in the dirt, buddy.
I got a regret: That I started acting so late. I was 27, and guys who start at 18 or so, there’s this kinda continuity of friendships they form in the profession by startin’ young, I’ve never had that.
This millennial generation… you guys seem so entitled.
Police are not all bad guys. Nobody is all bad guys.
The National guys will tell you the same thing – I tend to work until the last possible minute.
Guys are simple… women are not simple and they always assume that men must be just as complicated as they are, only way more mysterious. The whole point is guys are not thinking much. They are just what they appear to be. Tragically.
Some guys look better as they get older.
When I came up, it was Macho Man and all these other guys, and you had to come up with your own stuff. If you didn’t come up with your own stuff, you weren’t getting over.
I have a studio in a barn at home – we rehearse there, we film there and we record there. It’s fun to hang out with my guys and see what comes out next.
Once you do one bad guy, usually all you get offered is bad guys. But I’ve been able to do different things.
Ultimately, mentorship plays such a big role in breaking directors that successful male directors tend to reach the helping hand to guys who remind them of themselves. We need more women directors so they can reach out to girls who remind them of themselves.
My friend Liam Neeson has managed to carve out a great place in the industry for himself and is still doing action movies at 64 years old. He’s my hero. I use him as a template. My middle kid, Liam, is named after him. He’s one of the coolest guys in Hollywood.
Some guys play with their heads. That’s okay. You’ve got to be smart to be number one in any business. But more importantly, you’ve got to play with your heart, with every fiber of your body.
When it comes to meeting and attracting women, many men are resigned and complacent. We figure some guys were born with that particular power and other guys weren’t. I wasn’t.
Don’t be scared to look for help. Depression is real… It’s crazy, and all these guys, us athletes, that keep thinking we’re superheroes. I like to think I’m a superhero, but superheroes got to fight their demons, too, sometimes.
I certainly look at the modern guys and think they are a different species to when we played. They are fitter and their conditioning is extraordinary.
I am not one of these guys who works job after job after job.
I’m a bad girl. I always fall for good guys.
I’m one of those guys that is still a bit afraid of the telephone, its implications for conversation. I still wonder if the jukebox might be the death of live music.
I’ve got my eye on Big Cass and Enzo Amore. I think they ooze everything that it takes to be a WWE superstar. They have so much energy. Those guys and the Vaudevillains are the guys I’ve been tipping my cap to on the viewership side.
People think SEALs are cold-blooded, heartless, wound-up, brainwashed killers. They imagine you can just point a SEAL in a direction and say, ‘Go kill.’ The truth is you’re talking about a bunch of kind-hearted, jovial guys. The only thing that separates them is mental toughness.
I’m not one of these guys who’s constantly in a relationship, not at all.
I have one really nice watch. It’s a white-face, stainless-steel Rolex Daytona. I wear it a lot. I got that in the middle of ‘The Office.’ All the guys in the writers’ room were like, ‘Let’s all get a nice watch.’ We were too busy to upgrade our lives in a big way, but we thought this was a nice symbolic gesture.
I want to be singing to everybody, and I want everybody to think that I’m singing to them. Guys, girls and everyone in between.
I’m the guy who gets uncomfortable. That’s why I was able to write ‘The 40-Year-Old Virgin’ and ‘Knocked Up.’ I believe in those guys.
Some of your worst gangsters are guys who were very low-key.
I’ve always hated the term ‘alternative‘; I only use it because when I say it, people know what I’m talking about. I always thought it was weird when guys like myself or Patton Oswalt or Dana Gould, these older guys, were called ‘alternative’ comedy.
There are always a lot of guys that have potential, but to make it a certain amount of years in the league, it takes more than just potential. You have to be professional, you have to be a good teammate, do things the right way. So now, any chance I get to talk to younger guys, I do it.
Women have a level of outward compassion that a lot of men don’t necessarily have. Guys feel as deeply as women, but they don’t share it as much.
I want viewers to see that everything is connected, even the little guys like pollinators and flowers.
My guitar is a 1934 National Trojan. They call it a resonator, which is the guitar guys played in the honky-tonks before amplification. It’s very loud. It’s the type of guitar that Son House and Robert Johnson played.
Everybody has an opportunity in America. I don’t care if guys whine and complain about this or that. You know, no country affords its inhabitants the opportunities that the U.S.A. gives to its people.
That’s the thing about ‘Three Girls’ I found most upsetting. Young women feel their only options are to hook up with guys who’ve got vodka and cigarettes because they can’t actually imagine a future that’s any different. That’s terrible.
You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn’t wear a veil. You know, guys like that ain’t got no manhood left anyway.
My coach never looked at me as a female fighter, but just as a fighter, as someone he was training. I had to work just as hard as the guys, or harder than them.
Some guys come in and they’re super-humble and they get some success and then they change, everything changes. They become too big for other people.
When you have 20,000 people yelling and screaming at you, four other guys can concentrate on the floor. So every time I touch the basketball and everyone is yelling and chanting and doing things towards me, well, four other guys can concentrate.
I think you need to think of yourself as a flawed human being with aspirations for goodness and never start to think, ‘Oh, I am a good guy. These other people are bad guys. They’re dumb, I am smart.’
You feel like a stud out there when people swing and miss. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve preached to our young guys that strikeouts are sexy, but outs are outs, man, no matter how you get them. It’s a lot cooler for me pitching in the seventh or eighth inning than it is going 5 1/3. Your manager likes it a lot more, too.
The team goals are always more important than individual goals. The ultimate goal is to win the Super Bowl and to do something special. The other little goals that you guys write up, those things take care of itself in the midst of playing football.
There’s no good guys and bad guys.
The key to staying together is making sure you guys like each other and need each other.
A lot of young guys coming up in this league, they’re given the spotlight right away, depending on draft stature or whatever the case may be.
If we’re talking fantasy, I would love to host a late night talk show… More Fallon than Leno. Those guys always seem like they’re having way too much fun at their ‘jobs.’
I love storytellers. When I was growing up, my inspirations were watching Eddie Murphy, Dennis Wolfberg, and Louie Anderson. These guys were great at telling stories, and I made that my own style, talking about things that happened to me and trying to make them funny.
I took a lot of pride, honestly, in hiring these young guys, that not only to become future head coaches, but I wanted young guys that could help me – guys that can coach, guys that could study, guys that loved it, that would do it for nothing. That’s how I got into coaching with the 49ers when John McVay hired me.
You have to have a character; you have to build your character. If you understand the pro wrestling scheme of things, then you understand what the promoting is. These guys are friendly backstage, but as soon as the cameras turn on, it’s a whole different story: you become that character.
Pittsburgh was a great team. Coach Noll, Joe Greene, Jack Lambert, L.C. Greenwood and all those guys did a great job. That’s the team that kept us from winning two Super Bowls. It was a great rivalry.
The progressives like to talk a lot about poverty – and you should. However, it’s the guys in the middle who have really been hurt by the global economy . The people at the bottom have been holding on to their jobs quite well, actually.
We are all built differently. Some guys are more powerful. Some guys are very tall. I’m not very tall, so I rely on quickness.
I think you’re a product of your influences, your environment. You see guys with so much talent, but they got the wrong people around them telling them the wrong things. They wind up going down the wrong path.
I’ve had the pretty good fortune of working with some decent guys and gals.
I’m impressed with what the NWA has done, what Billy Corgan and Dave Lagana and those guys have done, establishing the NWA title to mean more and have more interest again.
As an athlete, I used my speed, agility and quickness to go out and play against the big guys.
Research shows that making eye contact is a powerful draw for guys – even in photos. Just don’t mistake duck face for flirty.
Unless you’re Jack Lemmon or Cary Grant, there are few guys who can do comedy and drama.
Guys understand a waistline. They understand a silhouette. I dress for men.
Nice guys finish first. If you don’t know that, then you don’t know where the finish line is.
It’s certain rappers that can really rap, that really spit all bars, so I understand why someone would say, ‘You not a real rapper.’ But the main thing is, if you can make good songs, who cares? So I don’t know why guys be tripping on Drake. He makes great music. He’s dope.
That’s the compliment I get most often – ‘You guys are so honest.’
If it wasn’t for KISS, there would be no Guns N’ Roses. Bands like that made Guns N’ Roses. We were five guys with five personalities and five different influences. The stars were aligned for us.
I’ve worked with some terrific actors. The list of guys that came on the ‘Columbo’ show, I mean they were world-class actors from all over the world – Oskar Werner, Laurence Harvey, Donald Pleasence, you know… foreigners.
This is what we get paid to do, is to bring it every week, and I hope the guys would say I bring it every week. I mean, I love this game, and I bring energy.
I am always a sucker for the underdogs. I love Batman and Superman, but when it comes to the guys who don’t stand in the front of the line, Aquaman is one of the key guys for me. He’s so much fun to work on.
Growing up where I’m from, some people are afraid of cops. They don’t really like cops. And what a lot of people don’t realize is, they’re really not the bad guys. They’re really on our side, they’re really trying to help us out. And sometimes, we don’t understand that.
It’s definitely more fun playing a bad guy. It feels a lot better than playing one of the good guys.
I know there’s a lot of guys would love to see me fail.
When I started to play football, when I was around 15, 16, I remember the players that played on the national team and noticed that it was only typically Swedish guys.
I think a lot of guys have their favorite shirt that they wear for years and years.
I want to stay humble, but I have to talk because the other guys talk too much, and… I understand the crazy power the UFC PR machine has.
If my teammates are out there to hoop, I’m going. I see the way these guys prepare for games. How can you not want to go be a part of that?
I’m pretty close with a lot of guys, like Nick Watney and Steve Marino, D.J. Trahan and Charlie Warren.
I look around and see guys that I’ve been on the road and traveled the world with in a WWE locker room, and we still think it’s surreal. At least once a week, one of us will look at the other and just say, ‘Can you believe we’re really all here?’
I liked being one of the fastest guys on the field.
I love my tattoo and I think it looks great. It’s like an old pair of jeans, it’s beat up. I remember when I first got it outlined. I’m like ‘why don’t more guys do this?’ Then I realized the pain.
They say you don’t want to meet your heroes, but those two guys, you do want to meet them, because they do not disappoint. Walken has this amazing sense of humor, and Pacino is like just a sweetheart of a guy.
Some of these guys wear beards to make them look intimidating, but they don’t look so tough when they have to deliver the ball. Their abilities and their attitudes don’t back up their beards.
Dance is about portraying and telling a story and whether that be two males, two females, a group of guys, or a group of girls, it doesn’t matter as long as the story is beautiful.
When a family film is done well, there’s a character that every member of the audience can relate to. I want to be one of those guys.
The way I look at humanity, I don’t think there’s good guys or bad guys. We’re all potentially bad and potentially good.
I spent a good amount of my time – like a lot of guys my age – obsessing and blowing things up with G.I. Joes. I know it well.
Old white people have pretty much always been the bad guys, the keepers of the hegemonic and reactionary flame, the folks unwilling to share the category of American with others on equal terms.
I love how British guys dress for the cold.
When people say the word ‘bromance,’ it drives me nuts, because guys can’t be friends so they call it a ‘bromance’ as this macho way out of it.
I’m going to be vocal, but I’m not going to be just yelling around. That’s not me. But I can go talk to guys. I can lead by example by my hard work and my approach every day and with how I prepare for games, practices.
For me, I’ve been very lucky because of my relationship with Ring of Honor. I’m very close with everyone there, and that includes the guys that negotiate the contracts.
When people tell me to do a clean show, I’m like, ‘Guys, I don’t even understand your thoughts anymore.’ What, you can’t say a curse word? Nobody thinks that way!
I really like guys who have confidence, but not the cocky over-the-top confidence.
There are some extremely acceptable male comedians out there: Joel Osteen, Abraham Lincoln, the man who played Phil Spector in HBO’s ‘Phil Spector.’ But even those guys, while insightful and amusing, aren’t exactly funny.
I remember being amazed that actors had a union. I thought only coal miners had unions, or guys that worked in automobile plants. That’s an indication of how naive I was.
A huge number of real ‘Chase’ fans have taken me to their hearts and people are recognizing me out and about and are saying how pleased they are with me making a refreshing change to the lineup – not that they don’t like the other guys but people like that we’re all different.
A lot of vets like ‘Good Morning Vietnam’ – I get great letters from guys.
You see those guys wearing baggy pants, descendants of the parachute pants, wearing an odd, weird Frankenstein haircut. It all comes out of Peter Lorre.
All I know is that skating is getting better, the guys are getting better throughout the whole age range.
So many girls only care about guys and looking good all the time.
When you look at a corporation, just like when you look at a slave owner, you want to distinguish between the institution and the individual. So slavery, for example, or other forms of tyranny, are inherently monstrous. The individuals participating in them may be the nicest guys you can imagine.
We know somebody’s got to win, somebody’s got to lose, but aside from that, there’s a lot of latitude and spontaneity and free-wheeling that I think would make it a much better product. I’m not knocking the product on RAW or Smackdown or NXT; these guys are good, but they’re following a television format.
I think that type of mindset, no matter if you’re 16-0, you’re rolling through the playoffs, no matter what the situation is, there’s always going to be somebody that’s doubting you or saying something about you. I think for certain guys individually, it may be something that kind of gives you that extra kick.
I’m a straight guy and I date women, but I get on really well with gay guys. I’m very comfortable with my sexuality. The weirdest thing for me is when straight guys get really freaked out by gay guys. It’s almost like they’re insecure in their own sexuality. For me, I can be in a room full of gay men and have fun.
We don’t need refs, but I guess white guys need something to do.
The guys who play in midfield and up front are the ones who decide games.
These guys who keep on playing but aren’t winning, you’ve got to sit them down and let them figure it out and perform a little gut-check on themselves.
If two smart, intelligent, clever guys sit together on a table, and you both want the same, where can be the problem? We all want to be successful.
My whole life, I’ve guarded guys bigger than me.
Pearl Jam doesn’t just sing about issues they care about. These guys walk it like they talk it.
So many guys are so conservative with their hair, and I always joke with all my buddies when they mess with me, and I’ll say, ‘That’s right, keep the same haircut for ten years.’ How fun is that?
Didn’t the other guys tell you? Nobody dunks on Manute B-O-L!
What you realize is when you have an environment and an atmosphere like we had at Marist, where guys cared about each other, the coaches were great teachers and communicators, whether it’s high school, college or pro, I think coaching is coaching.
I don’t have to play just against NBA guys. No, I’ll play anywhere, anytime.
The people who were against the Vietnam War thought I was attacking the Army. The guys in the Army thought I was representing their experiences. I was on both sides, and I survived.
As you know, I’m androgynous. I can wear a jacket that most guys wouldn’t put on. But you make it in guys’ sizes, and suddenly they’re wearing them. I think styles should get back to getting people to wear things that look so good that they don’t care.
My dad told us up front, ‘Guys, if you want to play sports, go ahead, but it’s your decision.’
I get along with guys; most of my friends are guys. It’s easier to trust men sometimes. I only have a few close girlfriends that I trust.
I write about presidents. That means I write about guys – so far. I’m interested in the people closest to them, the people they love and the people they’ve lost… I don’t want to limit it to what they did in the office, but what happens at home and in their interactions with other people.
I think the ability to hit – some guys have it and some guys don’t – but I think how dedicated you are to trying to get the most out of yourself, I think kind of determines how good you are and for how long. I was born with the ability to hit, but my work ethic has taken it to the next level.
When I was a kid, like 14 or 15, I played with the waiters from the hotel, ’cause that was the best game. And these guys, they’d let me play. And they were black guys.
It’s not that other countries steal jobs from you guys. It’s your strategy. Distribute the money and things in a proper way.
A lot of guys are just as fast, just as strong, or just as big as me. But they’re not going to be able to think the way I do on the field.
You look at all the elite players around the League, the guys that are responsible defensively, the guys that can score at will, they kind of do it all.
I remember, in 1999, the first time I met Steve Cram, I didn’t know who he was. It was only later, on YouTube, I started watching Seb Coe, Ovett. So it’s nice to be recognised as one of the best guys in the world.
Announcers don’t do enough of the cat-and-mouse strategy and all the work that goes into it. You watch a broadcast and guys get the pitches wrong.
Women are the real reason we get up every day. I’m talking about real men. If there were no women, I would not even have to bathe, because why would I care? These are guys I’m hanging with. I wake up for a woman every day of my life to make it happen for her.
I think the most rewarding part of the job, and I think most coaches would say it, is practice. If you have it, a very good practice in which you have 12 guys participate, and they can really get something out of it, lose themselves in practice.
I don’t want a player that’s content with not playing… But we wanted to play the guys that got us here.
I’m one of the most adaptable guys I know in as much as travelling is my favourite thing to do in life. With every place I go, I try to stay there long enough to do it justice, long enough so that I can at least imagine what it would be like to live there. Once I imagine that, then it’s OK for me to return home.
I think it’s a travesty that the NBA can’t just tell these guys to play basketball two days in a row. It’s just a joke to me. We flew commercial, and we were able to play back-to-back.
If you started in New York you were dealing with the biggest guys in the world. You’re dealing with Charlie Parker and all the big bands and everything. We got more experience working in Seattle.
Super villains and bad guys win in real life.
I really never had any ambitions to be a standup comic. I was talked into it by guys that I used to work out with.
It was just bred in me that I would not back down to guys who were bigger than me.
The kind of people I look for to fill top management spots are the eager beavers, the mavericks. These are the guys who try to do more than they’re expected to do – they always reach.
A lot of guys go in immediately for status, as opposed to comfort and allowing their home to tell a story about them.
I have always been attracted to gay guys so I always thought I am gay man.
It’s better for me to play with guys because Rock ‘n’ Roll has such an aggressive attitude.
Billy Joel is an incredible musician. He just feels like one of the guys, you know. I grew up listening to his music.
Whenever I start feeling too arrogant about myself, I always take a trip to the U.S. The immigration guys kick the star out of my stardom.
If Kaepernick is trying to become a backup quarterback, and we’re seeing guys like Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith being picked ahead him, then you can argue that he is being blackballed.
I remember the first time I saw the ‘Sugarhill Gang’ on Soul Train. I was 11 or 12. I was like, ‘What’s going on? How did those guys get on national TV?’ And then, when I was a little older, a rapper from the neighborhood got a record deal. I was shocked.
There are a lot of guys who play in pro-style offenses who are not prepared when they come out of college. Either you’re coaching the quarterback to be a quarterback, or you’re not.
I’ve always wanted to race cars, ever since I was a young boy, as I think a lot of guys have.
I’m one of the guys who wants to watch the film completely done, with special effects, sound and music, because I tend to get disappointed if I watch it not fully done.
When you are on the floor, there’s no better feeling than when your teammates are into the game on the bench and are cheering for you and vice versa. When you come out of the game, you are cheering for those guys that are on the floor.
I’m very fortunate to work with a great group of guys that are great coaches, great motivators, excited about what they do, have a lot of enthusiasm and are excellent coaches.
My family comes first. Maybe that’s what makes me different from other guys.
My philosophy is that you don’t motivate players with speeches; you have motivated players that you draft. That’s where they come in, and those are the guys that are competitive. You can not teach competitiveness.
I was blessed to have the guys at Bear Stearns as mentors. They taught me a lot, but most of all, they taught me that there’s nothing wrong with selling if you’re selling the right product to the right person.
One things guys have to remember is consistency… You can’t make up for three years of eating poorly in just one workout.
To the women and children, T stands for tender. To the bad guys and thugs, it stands for tough.
These young guys are playing checkers. I’m out there playing chess.
I have a weakness for anything savory or bad guys. Bad boys.
Just to be in the locker room with the NHL players, go out to dinner with them, hang out with them. I feel like it was an invaluable experience and kind of like going to Harvard law school, I guess, because that’s the best education you could get being around guys like that.
Guys are natural problem solvers – they like to have strategies.
I win by submissions, knockouts. There’s guys ranked above me, but no one’s interested in seeing them fight. They want to see me fight.
Jack Nicklaus liked to curve the ball by opening or closing the clubface at address. I never felt I was good enough to do it his way. I didn’t like changing my swing path, either, which some guys do. There’s only one really reliable way to curve the ball: Change your hand position at address.
Metal guys are huge nerds. A good percentage of them are either horror or sci-fi or comic book or fantasy nerds.
I think I felt compelled in a way because if I hadn’t written the part, I never would have been offered the part. There are at least 10 guys who would have been offered the part before me.
The idea of beauty today is a bloody mess. It’s really awful. You look in the fashion magazines and see all of these retouched people. Some guys called retouchers go on the computer and take away everything that you are and then call it photography. I think it’s such an insult.
I grew up in Chicago, so I’ve always been a Bears fan. Dad used to take me to Bears games and Cubs games. My brother used to ride me over to Lake Forest College on his Honda Supersport and we’d watch the Bears practice. I remember those guys out there as monsters – they were the biggest things I’ve ever seen!
If people want to take the chance to watch, to see what I bring and try to use it to better themselves, yeah, OK. But I’m not one of these guys who’s going to try to be a role model and be an angel because I want to get a Nike sponsorship.
I want to help middle-school girls stay interested in math and be good at it, and see it as friendly and accessible and not this scary thing. Everyone else in society tells them it’s not for them. It’s for nerdy white guys with pocket protectors.
You know when you see those guys and their sideburns are just a little too high? You don’t need to have sideburns, but don’t have to have them right above the ear. I knew a guy that did that in high school and I was like, ‘What are you doing? Just let them down a little.’
I still like to think I have a pretty good laugh with the other guys in the dressing room and still enjoy a beer and the odd night out.
If there are nine guys auditioning and they’re all gorgeous, I have an advantage, because gorgeous guys are a dime a dozen. But if they need someone else – like a goofy guy with bad hair who is just okay – then that’s me. And finally, the other 2 percent who audition are geniuses that I could never touch.
I’m more of the girl who’s always in the friend zone, and I try to help if my other friend wants to get with someone. I can be a bit cheeky and say stuff that embarrasses my friends, but I’m normally the girl who guys like to be friends with, so I become friendly with the guy and then go, ‘Oh, this is my other friend.’
I’ve got a good team, got great agents that I know are going to handle the business side, and I trust those guys.
I despise all those who fight for peace. It’s only the bad guys and the troublemakers who create entertaining and history-changing events.
You mean guys don’t get injured in spring training? Guys get hurt walking down the street.
It takes a different mindset to be successful in anything; that’s why there’s not a lot of super duper successful people, because it’s guys I know who may be ten times more talented than me, but they don’t work as hard.
I’ve lived places these guys can’t defecate in.
There’s a couple guys that I’d like to wrestle, but truthfully, I want to wrestle as many guys as I can.
I don’t mind walking guys as long as I don’t give up runs.
I’ve always enjoyed bad guys throughout all movies.
I’ve never really felt like a veteran. I’ve never felt like the guy who’s like, ‘OK, everyone needs to look up to me and respect me.’ I’ve always just been one of the guys that people are excited to get in the ring with. That’s all I want.
I never went to a John Wayne movie to find a philosophy to live by or to absorb a profound message. I went for the simple pleasure of spending a couple of hours seeing the bad guys lose.
When I moved to U.S., you have to be stronger somehow, and a lot of kids from different countries and sometimes you have to play with big guys, especially I was small when I was little.
Jon Stewart, Bill Maher, Stephen Colbert. Those are the guys I look at who are telling me pretty much the truth. And they throw humor into it which makes it much more interesting to listen to.
In addition to my cousin, there were 30 or 40 guys I grew up with who became firefighters as well. So, I’ve been around firefighters all my life.
You can date whoever you want, but you should marry the nerds and the good guys.
Nice guys finish last, but we get to sleep in.
I do feel in 2018 that pro wrestling has gone in such a different direction. Before, things were so black and white; now, it’s shades of grey. It’s not so much good guys and bad guys: there are people who are put in situations who do the right or wrong things, but people react to them like they are stars.
Nobody will ever value you more than the guys that drafted you.
Lot of guys can take punches. The idea is not to take unnecessary punishment.
I wish men would stop telling me how they are not ‘bad guys,’ how they’re ‘an exception to the norm.’
When I was right out of college, I felt competitive with some of the guys in my class over career stuff.
It’s a tough world out there and all the guys are fighting hard and the competition is really tough.
I’d like to say to all my fans out there, thanks for the support. And to all my doubters, thank you very much because you guys have also pushed me.
I got injuries already from fighting from guys that have been cheating. And you’re never the same when you get injured like that. I mean, look at my hand. It’s broken, it’s got 16 screws in it. I’m not as strong in this hand. It just affects you, especially this body being my livelihood.
I love Los Angeles, and it’s been very good to me, but if everyone is running around telling the stories, who’s living them? You don’t play characters that are celebrities – you play guys who know what to do when their septic tank‘s blocked.
My goal is to outwork everybody in recruiting, sign the best players in the state, and turn these guys into the best team we can.
I’m the only person in this sport, for the most part, that ain’t on steroids. Now there’s new rules in effect, yeah, you’ve got guys not on steroids now, but they used to be. They’ve always been on steroids.
For us tall people, the whole key is that your hips and your knees should form a right angle when you sit down. That’s where backs and hips get to be problems for big guys.
Imagine being a running back or a receiver. You get tackled, and then when you get up, you’re surrounded by a bunch of guys, and they’re all screaming and yelling at you… Mentally, it wears on you, like, ‘God, how long can I do this?’ It’s a mental thing.
But I guess I like playing flawed guys ’cause it gives a place for the characters to go.
Some guys are admired for coming to play, as the saying goes. I prefer those who come to kill.
Every day I wake up, and I think about the wear and tear on my body, and will I be able to continue to perform at a high level. Sometimes I’m working with guys that are 15 years younger than me, 20 years younger than me.
Voice actors I used to know who were starting out in comedy were guys who did a lot of voices. They were usually comedy actors who developed their comedy by doing tons of impressions and voices that were usually very funny. And I never did any of that, so that’s, I guess, why I don’t consider myself a voice actor.
It doesn’t matter what the scoreboard says. I’m always having fun, talking to other guys. They even come to first base and ask me about hitting. I try to help them out as much as I can in the 30 seconds before the pitcher throws the next pitch. That’s me. I don’t think I will ever change that.
One of the biggest guys I worked with was Sean Connery. People like Sean, Michael Caine, Denzel Washington, they’ve been going for a long time, and not for nothing. They want to get this job right, and they realise the weight of responsibility on their shoulders.
Guys want to be reassured, too – even the manliest of men.
Bottom line: Black men like curves. When they’re crooning to women about how beautiful they are in an R&B song, the ladies you see in the video don’t reflect what those guys like.
I think it’s fun to fantasize about the idea of NXT and ROH butting heads and seeing which one will do better, especially with WWE looking at ROH guys to hire.
I love being able to come in every single day and work out and watch film and practice with guys who are all striving for the same goal.
It doesn’t matter where you grow up, what color you are, what religion you are. It’s just a bunch of guys that come together for a common cause. Let’s go win this game. It’s called team.
In OVW, it was like a different world, pretty much. They had the talent ready to stay around for a while, with guys who weren’t over yet and guys who weren’t retiring yet. With FCW, WWE were a bit more hands-on with the writers.
My brothers were big car guys.
On my first album I was wearing a lot of guys pants, baggy clothes and stuff like that. I was 17 and I was a little tomboy. And you would never see me wearing a dress or heels on my first record.
The best meal I’ve had was in Tavarua, an island in Fiji. It was just before sunset. A bunch of guys had just caught all this yellow fin tuna; they literally brought this huge wooden table down to the sand, pulled the tuna from the boat, dropped it on top of the table, pulled the skin off and sliced the tuna up.
I always looked up there, because I remember a time when the only things on the walls in Fenway were the Jimmy Fund sign and the retired numbers. Never in a million years did you think you’d ever be up there with those guys.
Tony Orlando is one of the nicest guys I have ever met – bar none – in my entire life. I was always a fan when I was a kid – you know, huge fan. Who wasn’t a fan of Tony Orlando?
I have amazing teammates, amazing coaches around me, and all I have to do is go play as hard as I could and play for one another, play for those guys and not look at the scoreboard, not look at the time.
Largely in the beginning, I did a lot of extra work because I was lighter than all the other guys. I was at a massive disadvantage, so I had to put on weight. I started with eating. I had to really focus on my diet.
