Paul Newman quotes page 2

Acting is a question of absorbing other people's personalities and adding some of your own
experience.
Paul Newman

Twenty-five years ago I couldn't walk down the street without being recognized. Now I can
put a cap on, walk anywhere and no one pays me any attention. They don't ask me about my
movies and they don't ask me about my salad dressing because they don't know who I am.
Am I happy about this? You bet.
Paul Newman

I would like it if people would think that beyond Newman, there's a spirit that takes action, a
heart, and a talent that doesn't come from my blue eyes.
Paul Newman

You only grow when you are alone.
Paul Newman

I'm like a good cheese. I'm just getting mouldy enough to be interesting.
Paul Newman

I keep trying to retire from everything and I've discovered that I've retired from absolutely
nothing. I was going to get out of the racing business and I'm back in the racing business. I
was going to let somebody else handle all the spaghetti sauce and I'm back in the spaghetti
sauce. I just finished the first play that I've done in 35 years, which is like sticking a rifle in
your mouth. So, I don't seem to be able to retire.
Paul Newman

To be an actor you have to be a child.
Paul Newman

Acting isn't really a creative profession. It's an interpretative one.
Paul Newman

Study your craft and know who you are and what's special about you. Find out what
everyone does on a film set, ask questions and listen. Make sure you live life, which means
don't do things where you court celebrity, and give something positive back to our society.
Paul Newman

I have an extraordinary attention span. I manage to juggle two or three different ideas at the
same time, and that's probably, if I have a gift, that's probably the best gift that's given me.
Paul Newman
