    Go to an audition – get rejected.

    Go to another audition – get rejected.

    Go to another audition – get rejected.

    At what point in this endless cycle of rejection do you begin to lose your love for the craft?

  • It’s important to always separate the business of acting from the craft of acting. The business of acting is slow and brutal and harsh and unforgiving. Most actors inevitably lose their love for the business.

    But you should never lose your love for the craft of acting. It’s what you’ve always dreamed of doing. It’s what you’re good at. It’s exciting and fun and challenging and interesting. It’s your first love!

    If you need a little inspiration, here are 10 famous actors discussing their love for the craft.


    Tom Skerritt:

    “Acting allows me to never have to grow up. There’s something about any creative discipline we do that regenerates the youthful quality that we had when we were dreaming about doing these things when we were little.”



  • Robert De Niro:

    “One of the things about acting is it allows you to live other people’s lives without having to pay the price.”


     


    Leonardo DiCaprio:

    “The best thing about acting is that I get to lose myself in another character and actually get paid for it.”


     


    Jeff Bridges:

    “A large part of acting is just pretending. You get to work with these other great make-believers, all making believe as hard as they can.”


     


    Michael York:

    “The actor’s place in society is as important as that of a doctor or psychiatrist. Occasionally, you can do projects that are really important. You have a sense of them changing the way people see the world.”


     


    Ben Stein:

    “It’s almost like a curse to want to be an actor. The curse of acting is that you act and have all this insecurity – but the joy of it is that when you’re actually doing it, it’s bliss. It’s worth going through a lot of trouble for that bliss.”



  • Tom Hiddleston:

    “I call acting, ‘3-D Anthropology’ or archeology”. Actors are out there, digging away in the mineshaft of the collective emotions of human beings. And the actors sort of have to bring back their findings and put them in the glass case of a motion picture.”


     


    Giancarlo Esposito:

    “I had a difficult childhood and for me acting was a way for me to make it brighter and happier. When I act, I become very focused and I get a better sense of who I am and so it was always a way for me to transcend my own personality and to be all of these other characters couldn’t be in real life.”


     


    Anthony Chisholm:

    “I’m an actor. I can play a lizard. Anything! We, as actors, want to act!”


     


    Alicia Witt:

    “Acting is magical. Change your look and your attitude, and you can be anyone.”
