Overview

ABOUT THE BOOK

People love Hollywood. Not just the sensational films that come from Los Angeles, but the actors, actresses, writers, producers, and directors who bring them to life. The silver screen illustrates and borrows from American culture; sometimes its a challenge to remember which came first: the movie or the meme.

Movie quotes influence our language and transport us to a different time and place, but what about the people behind the famous phrases? The stars of Hollywood share the best insight into the creative process and celebrity culture.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

Woody Allen is known for being exceedingly neurotic and nervous, on and off the silver screen. His self-depreciating humor registers in his quotes about life: Life doesn't imitate art, it imitates bad television, and Confidence is what you have before you understand the problem.

Jack Nicholson is another actor noted for his lasting star power and well-kept private life. Though he has had some rather public relationships, he said, I don't want people to know what I'm actually like. It's not good for an actor. Nicholson, age 75, recently talked about aging, having been an actor since the age of 21: Because you know, down deep in my heart, when all is said and done, I still live under the illusion that basically people think of me as an up-and-coming young actor.
