- A.J. Styles

Famous Deal

- Aaron Patzer

I Think Activity

I know it sounds weird, but the food that I eat, it doesn't make a big difference, and it never has. So, I've saved a ton of money not buying a lot of alcohol, not going out to restaurants too much. So, I think it's part of our culture, and it's part of a social activity more than anything else.

- Aaron Schock

Education Pretty

Big stories need human stakes.

Civilization Die

It's only Western civilization that, God forbid, you talk about dying, when it's the only thing we know for certain, right? Everyone's going to die, so what's the big problem? 'Oh, God. Don't talk about it. Don't think about it.' I mean, I'm one of them. I'm not a big fan of talking about dying.

- Abel Ferrara

Humility Sets

There is one common thing in superstars - enthusiasm and humility towards their work. Off sets, they are big stars for others, and they carry themselves the way they want to. When they are working, they are not stars.

- Adam Arkin

Been Ryan

I have been in teen shows for years, so doing that stuff - kissing - is kind of commonplace and not a big deal. It was way more cool just because it was Meg Ryan.

Entrepreneurs While

Coinbase is 'the' brand in the Bitcoin space. Their founder Brian Armstrong was amongst the first good entrepreneurs to emerge in this space.

I have this really big face.

- Adam Faith

Ahead Before

I'm a precrastinator. Yes, that's an actual term. You know that panic you feel a few hours before a big deadline when you haven't done anything yet? I just feel that a few months ahead of time.

- Adam Grant

Storytelling Always

As a writer, Chris Columbus was a big influence. 'The Goonies' was the first movie I ever saw that kids speak normally and not imagined how kids would talk. Always a big fan of Chris Columbus' dialogue and storytelling.

Bigger Lemonade

We don't have performances as big as 'Lemonade Mouth' on 'Zeke and Luther,' but they're both amazing experiences; just, 'Lemonade Mouth' was a bit bigger. It was different for me.

Film Suspend

You can't really do a big character in an action film; you're already suspending your disbelief in the action, then to suspend your disbelief in the character is too much.

- Adam McKay

Idea Will Ferrell

We, Will Ferrell and I, were approached by Sequoia, which is a big financing firm up in Palo Alto; they do a lot of Internet stuff, and they came to us and said they had an idea for a comedy site, and Will and I were sorta like, 'Yeah, we don't know. It's the Internet, we've seen it come and go.'

- Adam McKay

Stupid Rooms

'Friends' started because Rachel left her husband at the altar. This likability factor is just so stupid to me. It's the same thing as 'wish-fulfillment,' which is a big word you hear in a lot of Hollywood rooms. It basically means that people want to see other people living a life they can't lead, and I don't buy that. I think that's not true.

- Adam Pally

Love Gotten

I love plays that have musical moments. I'm not a big fan of musicals per se, but I love straight plays that have musical edges to them. I don't know if I will ever be able to structure a musical, but 'Finer Noble Gases' is as close as I've gotten.

- Adam Rapp

Small Films

When you're making under-million-dollar films, it becomes so much about actors' availability. When you're using big actors for small films, you're in second or third position to the big monoliths.

Assets Sure

You have to make sure that your assets and your back is protected before you make any big decisions.

- Adam Rich

Will Lot

A lot of big labels will just sign bands like a write off.

- Adam Rich

Think Want

It's weird because people think the biggest guys are the biggest eaters, but fat doesn't expand as much as muscle, so you want someone with a big frame who can expand.

- Adam Richman

Executives Texan

My most memorable food challenge was probably the Big Texan in Amarillo. All the big executives called me because it was such an iconic challenge, and a victory in that would be a legitimizing device for myself as much as for the show.

- Adam Richman

Friendship Childhood

Sixth grade was a big time, in my childhood, of hoops and friendship, and coming up with funny things.

- Adam Sandler

Feet Like

We just bought this house. It's too big. It's like 400,000 square feet, or something. We got an indoor lake and ski slope in the house! It's just too big.

- Adam Sandler

Grandmother Like

My grandmother used to embarrass me more, when she would pick me up from school wearing a big fuzzy hat. I didn't like that.

- Adam Sandler

Projects Mostly

Mostly I make lists for projects. This can be daunting. Breaking something big into its constituent parts will help you organize your thoughts, but it can also force you to confront the depth of your ignorance and the hugeness of the task. That's OK. The project may be the lion, but the list is your whip.

- Adam Savage

Starbucks Like

The Mall Of America, outside Minneapolis, is just a mall. Yeah, it's big. So, like, instead of your typical 12 Starbucks, there are 30.

- Adam Schlesinger

Think Studio

I think one of the great things about 'Bridesmaids' is that it's a big studio comedy, but all of the relationships in it are so grounded that you're watching a real movie.

- Adam Scott

Doing Everybody

No, I don't regret doing anything, and, you know, at the time, 'Monster-in-Law' was... I was so excited to get that part. I got to be in a big movie for a few months. I got work, and everybody on it was really nice, and it was a fun experience.

- Adam Scott

Quick Couple

I did a couple quick things with Nicole Kidman, and I really loved that. She was a really cool person to chat with and had a really lovely presence on set. I'm a big admirer of her work. It's amazing the volume of work she does.

- Adam Scott

Media Online

I'm a big consumer of media and content online.

- Adam Scott

Mine Certainly

I like Christian Bale. I've heard he's a big fan of mine, but I certainly reciprocate. I think he's really very good.

- Adam West

Small Next

A lot of people ask me, 'Are you going to do a sequel to 'The Guest' or 'You're Next?' - those movies weren't financially viable, so even though there are a lot of fans of it, it'd be a pretty small market we'd be appealing to. It's got to be a big hit for you to really justify that.

- Adam Wingard

Deal Trained

A decent man who doesn't consider himself a bigot can indeed be trained to behave like a bigot if he welcomes feedback exclusively from those who consider bigotry no big deal or, indeed, an attribute to be admired.

- Adam-Troy Castro

Personality Loud

I'm a big personality. I walk into a room, big and tall and loud.

- Adele

Loud Am

I am quite loud and bolshie. I'm a big personality. I walk into a room, big and tall and loud.

- Adele

Deal Shattered

The thought of someone spending $20 to come and see me and saying, 'Oh, I prefer the record and she's completely shattered the illusion' really upsets me. It's such a big deal that people come give me their time.

- Adele

Everyone Like

I don't want to be in everyone's face. I'm a big music fan, and I get really pissed off when it gets like that... and I don't want people to get like that with me.

- Adele

Festivals Audience

I will not do festivals. The thought of an audience that big frightens the life out of me.

- Adele

Go Come

Openness explains the ability to innovate and come up with big ideas because you're open to them, and fluid intelligence explains the ability to go and execute.

- Adeo Ressi

Very Another

Fluid intelligence is not a Big Five personality trait: It's a measurement of one's ability to rapidly learn and apply a rule set. As an entrepreneur, you're rapidly dealing with different issues, and your ability to switch from one issue to another is very important.

- Adeo Ressi

Wheelchair Use

I was too big to even contemplate exercise. I had to use a walking stick and a wheelchair to get around.

- Adnan Sami

Skin Discussion

I can understand when people say that they're not a big fan of my music. That's an individual opinion, and I respect that. But you don't have the right to comment on my choice of citizenship, my skin colour, or my religion. It's not open to discussion.

- Adnan Sami

Middle Very

We had a certain kind of really big prestige among, I suppose not just intellectual folk, but a sort of nice middle class intelligent folk of a very urban nature.

- Adolph Green

Think I Think

I think one of the keys to better writing is releasing all of your ideas and to not be afraid. Dream big. This could be the greatest novel in the world you know.

- Adora Svitak
