Happy Show

But HBO is less interested in how many people are watching than in how much the people who are watching are liking the show. They didn't set up their business model to make writers happy. It's just a nice unintended consequence.

- Aaron Sorkin

Strong Olympic

The Olympic dream was born in 2010 during the qualifications to Vancouver. And when I was watching those Olympics from the sidelines, I felt that I wanted to have my Games. I understood that it wouldn't be easy to make them, especially now that in Russia there are a lot of strong girls.

- Adelina Sotnikova

House Some

I leave work by 6:30 P.M. so I can spend some time with the children. Inevitably, we'll end up watching basketball or football. I live in a house of boys, and they're all sports mad, so I don't stand a chance.

- Aerin Lauder

Like Movie

A femtosecond is comparable to one second in 32 million years. It is like watching a 32-million-year movie to see one second.

- Ahmed Zewail

Entire Ratings

I don't pay attention to target audiences and therefore I often hear that I am a ratings killer, somebody who fundamentally doesn't care whether one person is watching or an entire soccer stadium.

- Alexander Kluge

People Been

I've been amazed watching people who are not ready with their scripts when they're getting a lot of attention.

- Allison Anders

Heart Really

At first, I was saying to my rep, 'I don't know if this is really my thing.' I get heart palpitations just watching basic comedy-horror stuff.

- Alycia Debnam-Carey

Dead Horror Films

I'm not a person who's obsessed with scary movies or horror films or anything like that, so when I was watching the original 'Walking Dead,' I was kind of surprised at how into it I was getting.

- Alycia Debnam-Carey

Learn Started

I understood that without English I would never get far, so my dream was to become a receptionist, and so I started to learn English from watching 'Sesame Street.'

- Anchee Min

Good Everybody

Unless I can come in in the morning and smile, walk in the lobby and say, 'Good morning!' - if I am stressed - I am not going to do a good job. Everybody is watching us. They are feeding off of our energy.

- Angela Ahrendts

Play Inspiring

Watching David write was inspiring to me. He was at his most content composing. Music floated from his mind and fingertips. He would strum the 11 strings on his 12-string Harptone guitar and wander to the piano and play a few bars, then off to forage for rice pudding in the kitchen.

- Angela Bowie

Hope Expecting

It's never enjoyable watching yourself. Because you're never as good looking as you hope you are. You're not expecting to be Penelope Cruz... but I'm a female of the species. I have my hang-ups and all of that.

- Anne-Marie Duff

Grown Evolved

I have grown up watching Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Dev Anand, Amitabh Bachchan and the likes. These are actors who have changed with time. They have no shelf-life. They have immortalised themselves because they have evolved with time.

- Arjun Rampal

Some Became

One of my earliest recollections is being woken up at some ungodly hour in the morning by my parents and sat in front of the fairly new black and white television, watching a grainy image of a man in a white suit climbing down a ladder. It was the first moon landing, and I became a sort of spaceman, as many kids were.

- Charles Stross

Play Bad

As much as I loved Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella, Junior Gilliam, and Don Newcombe, I loved watching Willie Mays play more than all of them combined, even if he played for the 'bad guys!'

- Cheech Marin

Week Last

I'm not into watching stuff I did last week, let alone three or four years ago.

- Chris Hemsworth

Had Lot

There are a lot of sacrifices a mother makes when she's raising a child by herself. I saw it when I was growing up, watching all my mother did for me. But it wasn't until recently that I fully understood the price she paid because of how we had to struggle.

- Christina Applegate

Enjoy Bit

To be honest, I don't enjoy watching movies much when I'm working. They tend to fall apart on me a bit.

- Christopher Nolan

Too Much Addicted

I'm totally addicted to Japanese anime and spend way, way, way too much time watching it.

- Connor Jessup

Television Often

There are few things quite so effortlessly enjoyable as watching an eminent person getting in a huff and flouncing out of a television interview, often with microphone trailing.

- Craig Brown

Sound I Think

I think the process is one of using the camera and sound in the way a detective uses a magnifying glass: to find the clues. They're discovery devices, not performance devices - you're watching things the way a cat does. You're not judging. You're there to witness something.

- D. A. Pennebaker

Practice Only

I like the feeling of not knowing where to look when you are only performing for one person or watching someone practice. It creates this kind of a strange in-between, which can be mirrored in the feeling of making a painting.

- Dana Schutz

Love Movie

I'd love to do a really juicy drama that's just really real. On the comedy side, I'd love to do something like '21 Jump Street.' I cannot stop watching that movie. Really funny, really extreme comedies are definitely my favorite.

Strong Really

I have a really hard time watching my sister act in anything, but especially anything where it's a strong emotion.

- Danielle Panabaker

Years Video

My first job ever, I was 14 years old - I was working at this mom-and-pop video store, and they basically paid me by allowing me to take home as many movies as I wanted, and that's how I started watching all the classics and really getting into it.

- Dave Franco

Believe Why

When I'm watching somebody act, it's a behavior editorial function - I look at someone act, and I might say, 'I don't believe him when he says that.' I don't know why I don't believe him, probably because the people that I've met, they don't act like that when they say stuff like that and mean it.

- David Fincher

Gift Anymore

I happen to be interested in watching a face age. I like faces of women aging so it makes me personally quite sad. That's a beautiful gift from God. If people don't want to see that anymore then I won't be in anymore movies.

- Debra Winger

Started Movie

Toward the end of school I started watching movies. Got a job in a movie theater in Brookline, Massachusetts.

- Jim McKay

Grow Made

Watching my kids grow up made me realize that they would never know a world or a time without the Internet.

- Jo Webber

Game Back

HBO spent a huge amount of money on 'Game Of Thrones,' and it won't be able to keep spending the money if it can't make it back from people watching it legitimately. It will have an effect on the quality of the programme.

- Joe Dempsie

Love Weeks

I would love to live stream them all, so if you're in New York and you come along, you can watch Tropfest N.Y., and six weeks later you are watching Tropfest Arabia or Tropfest Australia live stream, and so they are all connected.

- John Polson

Love Eyes

I hate watching stand-ups.

Been Whole

Love Recipe

I love anything to do with cooking, from watching the Food Network to reading recipe books by Gordon Ramsay, Jamie Oliver and Levi Roots. My favourite types of cuisine are Asian and Caribbean, and I love cooking new recipes for my family.

- Jourdan Dunn

Role I Remember

I remember watching Robert Powell many years ago. He did 'Jesus of Nazareth,' and I remember thinking that was probably my favorite. Once I got the role, I didn't want to watch anything, because it only influences what you do.

- Juan Pablo Di Pace

Artist Scottish

'Point Omega' starts in an art gallery, where an unnamed man is watching, day after day, a 24-hour version of 'Psycho,' an installation that was created by the Scottish artist, Douglas Gordon. In it, the events and the minutiae of Hitchcock's film are painfully slowly reproduced; the watcher is obsessed with the detail revealed.

- Justin Cartwright

I Can Movie

When I'm watching television or a movie, I like to see stories that are extraordinary. I don't need it be something that is, 'Well this makes more sense to me because I can see this happening to me, or this happened to me.'

- Justin Kirk

Always Guy

I was always too afraid to slow dance. But I do remember watching people slow dance. I was the guy on the sidelines. At the school dance, I was usually in the band, playing.

- Babyface

Play Everybody

It's definitely weird, because pretty much everybody owns the Tony Hawk videogame. Just going over to people's houses and watching play me as I walk in - that's actually happened a few times and that's so weird. It's like, 'Dude, you're playing me right now.' It was too weird.

- Bam Margera

Through Bowl

No, no, I don't watch football. The last time I tried watching was the last Super Bowl. The problem I have is, you know, the graphic nature of my imagination; when I watch and see them meeting head onto head, helmet onto helmet, what flashes through my mind is what's going on in their brains. It's like torture to me.

- Bennet Omalu

Feel Through

Performing is the craziest workout for me, because I feel like, on the first day of tour, I'm going nuts. Halfway through, I'm just so tired but obviously you keep pushing yourself because you have fans watching you.

- Hayley Williams

About Around

Christmas for me is all about spending time with my family. I cherish any chance we have to spend all day together making gingerbread houses, baking cookies, or sitting around and watching movies.

Run Will

It's sad that my daughter will get attention because of her daddy. I'm already watching her run around the house and pick up microphones. It's scary.

Horror Them

I have a 13-year-old daughter who rents these bloody horror movies, and I can't even walk into the room when she's watching them with her friends.

- Brad Dourif

Young Been

It's been really interesting watching people's reactions to the new music, to the old music and also watching how modern young people will be standing in front of something going on like live music, and there's a camera in front of their face.

- Brandon Boyd

Heroes Got

On 'Heroes' I got to work with Greg Grunberg all the time and Masi Oka, and they both are just wonderful actors. I don't know - you learn so much by watching people like that, I guess.

- Brea Grant

Greatness About

You are watching what greatness is all about.

- Brent Musburger

Direct Entertain

When we were trying to get the money for Driving Miss Daisy, everyone kept saying no one could direct it well enough to entertain an audience for 100 minutes essentially watching three people chatting in the kitchen.

- Bruce Beresford

Enjoy Going

I don't make a habit of watching tennis matches, but I try to watch all the major finals. I try to make time for that. So unless I have something going with the kids where I can't, I try to watch, and I enjoy that.

- Ivan Lendl

American Mickey

In Australia, I grew up watching 'The Mickey Mouse Club,' my son grew up watching 'Sesame Street,' my grandson's growing up watching 'Dora The Explorer.' So we are sort of saturated with American culture from the day we're born, and to those of those who do have an ear for it, it's second nature.

- Jacki Weaver

Away Him

I was blown away watching Michael Keaton act because he was such a maniacal, evil person on set. He takes on a totally different life, and it was so amazing to watch him work.

- Jacob Batalon

Grow Episode

I didn't grow up watching detective shows. I've never even seen an episode of 'CSI.'

- Cary Fukunaga

Run Really

I really liked watching Bo Jackson run just because of his size and his speed.

- Jamal Lewis

Speed Drove

Watching Bo Jackson, seeing his size, his speed, a lot of his abilities, really drove me.

- Jamal Lewis

Hero Play

I really liked 'Starter For Ten' because I grew up watching 1980s teen films like 'St. Elmo's Fire' and 'The Breakfast Club' and I've always wanted to play the underdog lead hero in a 1980s-inspired film.

- James McAvoy

Been Recently

I've been watching 'Lost' on DVD recently. I keep thinking, 'Where are those actors now?' Nobody knows.

- Denis O'Hare

Doing Instance

For instance, when I go to the premiere on Tuesday I probably won't watch the film at all - I'll be watching the audience just to see their reaction to different moments, what I'm doing right and what I'm doing wrong, stuff like that.

- Devon Sawa

Love Hiring

My parents were involved in community theater in New Jersey. Instead of hiring a baby sitter, they would take me with them. So my love of acting seeped in from watching my parents and seeing them having fun.

- Jane Krakowski

Experience Big

Imagine you're watching '30 Rock' and an ad comes on, but you don't like it. With Hulu Ad Swap, you can actually click the button and trade out the ad. So for the first time ever, a consumer is in control of their ad experience. For us, it's a big win because users are able to take control of what they see.

- Jason Kilar

I Think Slightly

As a writer, it's a great narrative tool to have that character who is slightly detached but at the same time observant of his reality, because I think that's pretty much what being a writer is - being there, watching and internalizing.

- Dinaw Mengestu

Love Pink

I spend days on my Xperia logging on Facebook chatting with my friends and family at home; I love listening to Rihanna and Pink and watching movies. Basically, anything that makes me smile, but most of my fans will know that I am always smiling!

- Dominika Cibulkova

Crumble How

As a writer, I have this compulsion to take characters who appear formidable and bombard them with adversity until they crumble. What's interesting is watching them rise again, and seeing how they've changed and grown, if indeed they have.

- Jean Hanff Korelitz

Everyone Show

I can remember the first face-lift show that came on. I rang up everyone - are you watching? I'm watching.

- Jennifer Saunders

Character About

There is nothing new, from Greek mythology to Shakespeare to every romcom ever made, we're just reimagining the same 12 story plots over and over again - so what makes people keep watching and listening? It's all about the character.

- Jeremy Renner

Love Other

I went swimming the other day and my wife was watching and she said, 'You know, it's funny, it's when you've got no clothes on, no one recognizes you.' I said, 'What are you saying? That I should do more love scenes?'

- Eddie Marsan

Good Feel

These actors like Danny McBride and Jonah Hill are so good at improvising, and when they do it, it's this fun moment for the audience. It makes them feel like they're watching something fresh and new.

- Jillian Bell

Life Role

I grew up watching Salman Khan and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who have always juggled fitness with acting. In real life, I'm a fitness freak. Besides, it is nice to look at an actor who is fit, and if you become a role model, that's a perk.

- Karan Singh Grover

Started Molly

I started watching 'SNL' when I was thirteen or so; those were the Molly Shannon/Ana Gasteyer/Cheri Oteri years.

- Kate McKinnon

Line Movie

I actually like older horror movies more than newer ones because when I'm watching newer ones, like 'Chucky' or 'Saw' or whatever, I'm like, 'Come on, really, this isn't even good, all it is is blood and knives.' I like when it has a story line, you know? When it's actually a movie.

- Emily Alyn Lind

Strong Anything

I have a really hard time watching my sister act in anything but especially anything where it's a strong emotion. Whether she's crying or she's angry or she's - whatever emotion she's feeling I actually think that she's feeling it and I want to hug her and make it all better.

- Kay Panabaker

Your Another

When you're acting and directing, you're standing there acting with another actor, and you're trying to do your performance, and at the same time you're watching their performance, and making sure the lights are in the right place, and if the person is wearing the right wardrobe. All these things are going on in your head.

- Kevin Heffernan

Back I Remember

I stopped watching horror movies after I watched 'Candyman' when I was - I don't know, fifteen or something. I remember my sister rented it, 'Candyman,' and it really, really scared me. And so it was only after I found myself in a horror film that I really went back and kind of rediscovered the genre.

- Fiona Dourif

Feel Whole

It felt like being in the center of the world, and I felt like I was a witness to history and I knew that the whole world was watching on television. So, I could feel the collective consciousness of the world focused on this little strip of land called Seattle.

- Krist Novoselic

Him Dad

My dad lived by example. I lived by watching him. I watched all the great things he did and said. I try to walk that talk for my children.

- Laila Ali

Father Existed

I saw women's boxing on television for the first time when I was 18, and that's when I wanted to do it. So, it didn't come from me watching my father. I didn't know the sport existed; therefore, I wasn't really interested in it until I saw it.

- Laila Ali

Very Had

I was watching the Danish version of 'The Killing' when I got the audition for 'The Fall,' and I loved it; it was so original. I approached 'The Fall' with that in mind. I'd no problem with the violence - it was very clear from the script how horrifying the crimes were and that had to be shown, without going to extremes.

- Laura Donnelly

Any Minded

I've never minded my kids watching any of the series I did. That's important to me.

- Lee Majors

Bit Put

I don't like to hold too much formality in concerts. It's not that I don't like seeing people who are really polished and put together. But I'm more excited by things that are a little bit breaking apart as you're watching them.

- Gavin Creel

Attitudes Anyway

I don't personally try to balance my work because I operate under the assumption that anyone reading or watching my stuff isn't having a particularly balanced day anyway. But negative attitudes just amuse me more than positive ones.

- Lev Yilmaz

Joy Being

My joy is watching people being joyful.

- Gianna Angelopoulos-Daskalaki

Love Movie

I love watching foreign films on my projector at home along with my closely knit group of friends and family. I also love to dissect movies and discuss them with my friends who are movie buffs.

- Terence Lewis

Shows Definitely

In 1962 I was 17, so I was definitely watching the dance shows on television.

- Micky Dolenz

I Think About

I think the outside world can learn a lot about how to act by watching a major league clubhouse. I don't think you want to do everything the same, but there's a lot of things I think people could learn from.

- Terry Francona

Movies Jim

I grew up watching those blaxploitation movies. Ron O'Neal, Richard Roundtree, Jim Brown, Pam Grier. For the first time, I saw 'The Negro' get one over on 'The Man.'

- Samuel L. Jackson

Grandparents Bit

I was watching a black and white television in Cairo, MI., at my grandparents' house, and I watched Neil Armstrong step on the moon. At that point, it set the bit for me to be an astronaut, and it was kind of like a dream, but it really wasn't reality.

- Gregory H. Johnson

Kid Movie

When I was a kid, I really loved watching 'Cinderella.' It's a fantasy, and every girl knows that real life isn't always like these movies, but as a child, I just really loved the story of 'Cinderella.' I found it to be so romantic and just a beautiful movie to watch.

- Sara Ramirez

Film Accent

A really irritating thing when you're watching a film is if somebody's accent isn't bang-on - it distracts you from getting into the story because you're thinking: 'Where are they from?'

- Rachel Hurd-Wood

Thought I Think

I was always like, 'No, I don't like sci-fi,' and then I started watching it and thought, I didn't know that's what it was. I think I'd somehow got it confused with action and space-travel action - that sci-fi could only be like 'Star Wars.'

- Sarah Snook

Independent Got

They seem much rarer now, those auteur films that come out of a director's imagination and are elliptical and hermetic. All those films that got me into independent cinema when I was watching it seem thin on the ground.

- Toby Jones

Bad Changing

To put it simply, as a black man, I started watching films at the age of six, and I've since seen the bad guys changing race - between the African savages, to the Native Americans, and then the blacks and the Arabs and the Chinese and the Vietnamese. Look at 'Rambo': it's exactly that.

- Raoul Peck

Steel I Remember

I remember watching Wesley Snipes as Blade. I watched Michael Jai White as Spawn. I even watch Shaquille O'Neal as Steel. I felt like seeing a physical representation, a non-cartoon representation, affected me in a much different way.

- Ray Fisher

Game Been

There are people who have been in this game much longer than myself. And one of the things that I've learned by way of just watching is to stay flexible because you never know what may pop up.

- Ray Fisher

Love King

I love watching the Serengeti, the way lions live. The only way the king lion loses his crown is by somebody physically defeating him.

- Ray Lewis

Used Had

I grew up watching 'Superman.' As a child, when I first learned to dive into a swimming pool, I wasn't diving, I was flying, like Superman. I used to dream of rescuing a girl I had a crush on from a playground bully.

- Tom Hiddleston

Team Turf

I guess what I'm really saying is something obvious - that there's a unique pride in watching a home team from rival turf, especially when we're not supposed to be any good.

- Serge Schmemann

Stalking Very

I saw a crow building a nest, I was watching him very carefully, I was kind of stalking him and he was aware of it. And you know what they do when they become aware of someone stalking them when they build a nest, which is a very vulnerable place to be? They build a decoy nest. It's just for you.

- Tom Waits

Excitement Sport

The Oscars is a sport. There's the excitement of watching something live, as it happens.

- Neil Meron

Signs Observe

I am the audience. I want to observe people. Even when I'm playing drums onstage, I'm watching people. I'm looking at them and their faces and their T-shirts and their signs. And travelling by motorcycle, especially, the world is just coming at me.

- Neil Peart

Doing Young

The first film that I can remember seeing where, like, I just couldn't stop watching it - and it didn't necessarily make me want to be a director because I was so young, but it made me know that that's what I wanted to be doing - was 'Alien.' And I saw that when I was probably just over 10 years old.

- Neill Blomkamp
