  • “I know for a fact that if we rehearsed more, all our movies would be better. I know it for a fact, and I’ve spent my life arguing that. I know every movie in which I’ve ever been permitted to have rehearsal was always a better movie. I know it, so why doesn’t Hollywood get the point? Acting [isn’t] competing with other people. In fact, you do the opposite: You prove that you’re a trustworthy human being who’s not just trying to audition for his next job within a role, you’re actually trying to help make the other guy or girl better, because you want the scene to be better, you want the truth that’s inherent in the script to be more available to everybody. You’re not trying to steal attention, you’re trying to pay attention. Those ethics to me are standard. They emanate from an ethic that is the heart of theater.” — William Hurt [N.Y. Magazine]
