Biographies are but the clothes and buttons of the man. The biography of the man himself cannot be written.
Initially I probably didn’t even call it acting, but dressing up or something. As a kid I think you fully imagine the world in which you want to inhabit, so you put some clothes on and just kind of freely imagine this world, and it’s a total imaginary world.
Her godmother simply touched her with her wand, and, at the same moment, her clothes were turned into cloth of gold and silver, all decked with jewels.
I adore the challenge of creating truly modern clothes, where a woman’s personality and sense of self are revealed. I want people to see the dress, but focus on the woman.
Clothes and jewellery should be startling, individual. When you see a woman in my clothes, you want to know more about them. To me, that is what distinguishes good designers from bad designers.
In a novel, on the other hand, you not only have to describe the rooms, but the clothes, the characters and what they are thinking. It’s a much more in-depth process.
To have all your life’s work and to have them along the wall, it’s like walking in with no clothes on. It’s terrible.
Planet of the Apes was a gigantic challenge, making the clothes work so people could do stunts and action in the clothes. I really learned a lot about that in that movie.
The color of somebody’s skin or the way he wears his hair or clothes has nothing to do with anything.
I don’t enjoy good food. I don’t enjoy flashy cars. I don’t care if I live in a dump. I don’t enjoy good clothes. This is the best I’ve dressed in months.
I’d like to believe that the women who wear my clothes are not dressing for other people, that they’re wearing what they like and what suits them. It’s not a status thing.
But most distinctly, I remember always saying to myself that when I get big, I’m not going to go to bed hungry, I’m not going to wear hand-me-down clothes.
Upon the clothes behind the tenement, That hang like ghosts suspended from the lines, Linking each flat, but to each indifferent, Incongruous and strange the moonlight shines.
You can take any one of our stories that we use right now, put western clothes on us, stick us out in the west and they’ll work just as well – any single one of them – because they’re stories about people, they’re stories about things.
It’s so much harder to keep your clothes on than take them off in this business. Even in Exotica, they wanted more nudity, but I didn’t feel comfortable.
Have you ever taken something out of the clothes hamper because it had become, relatively, the cleanest thing?
How strange, when your father’s wearing women’s clothes and platform shoes, that a pair of loafers looks incredible.
In my hand luggage I always have my camera, iPod, make-up bag, tooth brush, cleansing products, clean underwear, socks and a change of clothes in case anything goes missing at the other end – and of course my passport.
I wouldn’t like to see a chick of mine taking her clothes off and kissing a fellow on screen. And my girls must get very hurt when they see me doing it.
I’m much more interested in what an actor has to say about something substantial and important than who they’re dating or what clothes they’re wearing or some other asinine, insignificant aspect of their life.
I would like to do a part that would stretch me. In America it seems to me that you just take your clothes off and that helps, but I wouldn’t want to do that.
Let me tell you something: if you’re on an island for three and a half months and you’re four and a half hours by boat from the nearest store, and there’s nobody but 30 crew members on the island, I guarantee that you’d be running around without your clothes on.
I have adopted clothes from all the projects I’m in. It’s really been a while since I’ve bought anything myself.
The actress they’d hired had refused to appear naked in front of the camera. I didn’t like to appear naked either, but the first thing I did was take off my clothes and jump into the pool completely naked.
The first duty of government is to see that people have food, fuel, and clothes. The second, that they have means of moral and intellectual education.
And you know, the baby boomers are getting older, and those off the rack clothes are just not fitting right any longer, and so, tailor-made suits are coming back into fashion.
I’m fulfilled in what I do. I never thought that a lot of money or fine clothes – the finer things of life – would make you happy. My concept of happiness is to be filled in a spiritual sense.
One of the strangest things about being an actor is that people you don’t know feel that they are allowed to comment on your hair, body, clothes, relationships.
Actually, the camera was never overhead at any time. It was always a side view of me. Subsequently, after the picture was released, I saw some scenes from above and my clothes being pulled-and I think that was added later.
For some ungodly reason, I end up being naked in a lot of stuff. But there is a certain grace and kudos that come with taking your clothes off on the first day, a respect that is given by the rest of the cast.
There are tons of people who are late to trends by nature and adopt a trend after it’s no longer in fashion. They exist in mutual funds. They exist in clothes. They exist in cars. They exist in lifestyles.
I think some people would love to be able to make the clothes I make – and of course, I do influence them, but they keep simplifying, and minimalism doesn’t quite work.
It’s only I have seen enough of it and the funny thing is now, I know that I’m skinny, because I know there are even smaller clothes in the store. I think I’m big, when I was big, I never thought about it.
I’m horrible to live with. I don’t clean. My clothes end up wherever I take them off. I forget to flush the toilet.
It was morning; through the high window I saw the pure, bright blue of the sky as it hovered cheerfully over the long roofs of the neighboring houses. It too seemed full of joy, as if it had special plans, and had put on its finest clothes for the occasion.
I’d much rather be a woman than a man. Women can cry, they can wear cute clothes, and they’re the first to be rescued off sinking ships.
The prisoners eyed the clothes some time, and laughed a good deal among themselves before they put them on.
Nothing separates the generations more than music. By the time a child is eight or nine, he has developed a passion for his own music that is even stronger than his passions for procrastination and weird clothes.
