John C Reilly Quotes
“I actually envy actors who have a persona: ‘This is the way I am. This is the part I play.’ And do it over and over and over. To me, that’s a lot easier than trying to reinvent yourself every six months.” – John C. Reilly
“I get the greatest joy from just doing anything, being an actor. Making music and doing what I love to do. I don’t make a huge distinction between comedy and drama. I think the whole point is just trying to be as honest, from moment to moment, as you can be. If you’re honest about the material, and the material is ridiculous, then you’re in a comedy.” – John C. Reilly
“If you’re really honest with yourself when you’re acting, part of it is touching the real you. You can only separate yourself so much from the character. Those vulnerable moments do touch me.” – John C. Reilly
