My life has always been geared towards my career. If my life is complete in other ways then I don't mind being a 65-year-old spinster. But I don't discount love when I'm talking about not getting married. I could... it's just something I haven't wanted to do yet.
I really don't have no regrets. I think that where I am in the stage of my career and in my life made me who I am today.
I got my career started late so, even though I'm getting older, I don't have as much wear and tear on my arm. I feel good. I really do.
If it hadn't been for the videocassette, I may not have had a career at all.
I no longer look at my life and times in the motion picture industry as my career. I just look at it now as something I like and want to do.
When I was working on my career, I was very aware of what I had done, what I wanted to do next. I'm having a good time just reading things that might be interesting to do.
I don't really look for specific types of projects any more. I'm not taking care of a career anymore. I'm just having fun acting.
I've never looked at my career in terms of, What haven't I done that I want to do? I just generally find a story that I think is a good one and go to work
Some people who make music are instantly very savvy about how they can get their music to communicate in a larger way. For me, the music was always first, and I put a lot of time and effort and thought into making the recordings. But everything else around it, all the things that were necessary to have a career in pop music, I was completely ill equipped to handle.
I suppose there are a lot of people who'd kill to have my career, but I still feel like a fan.
Harold Ramis really got my career going and was a friend for a long time. I was doing a play in L.A., and he came to see it a few times and recommended me to Ivan Reitman for Ghostbusters 2. Six months later, I quit real estate and was acting for good, and it was really because Harold took an interest in me and made a phone call and did stuff that people don't usually do, even if they like somebody.
I started just naturally turning into a nicer person, and it actually helped broaden and lengthen my career.
Strange to wake-up this morning as a former ODI cricketer, but it's been a great honour and privilege playing for Sri Lanka during the past 15 years. At the end of the day, I am very fortunate to have enjoyed a long career playing with and against some great players. Thanks for all the encouragement and support over the years.
I don't want to extend my career for individual records. This is the time to go.
In my life and in my career, I really love to play different roles. I never want to play the same role twice.
A lot of people have wondered what Ive been up to. I retired from my career after 24 years. My feeling was that it was time to play my biggest part - Myself!
Not careers alone make people happy. A successful professional life and joy in work are certainly a part of it, but I couldn't be happy without a fulfilling private life.
Having a career is a bit like navigating an Atlantic crossing - you have to make sure everything is keeping and is balanced.
It's very hard having a career in different continents and two different languages.
'The English Patient' was a huge turning point in my career and my life; it became this huge thing. But the whole Oscar build-up got completely out of control; I spent more time talking about that film than I spent making it!
I'm really lucky. I never really felt like LA was the Mecca, that you "made it" if you made it somewhere else. I've been a journeyman actor for my whole career. I just sort of went where I was invited. I worked the early part of my career in Canada before I had the luxury of doing an American series, which brought me down to LA.
Finding your passion isn't just about careers and money. It's about finding your authentic self. The one you've buried beneath other people's needs.
I'm having a great career, though I think I'm not as good as your little scenario makes me out to be.
In terms of my career, having the gold definitely changed my life. The Olympics are different, you know? They're every four years and it's such a small group.
I feel there's so much pressure, especially for women, to declare what their life's going to be and what their career is, and are you married yet? Are you single? But you're 30. And girlfriends are so important. You can have a boyfriend or husband when you're 30, but you still need your girlfriends.
I really don't think about my career, in terms of planning it out and what any role does for me.
This weird thing happens when you're in a movie that has some level of success. People start offering you all kinds of things, and they just expect you to do them because they'll be good for your career. It's not about the project's integrity or anything like that.
I had to act in a school play when I was about ten years old. I really didn't want to do it. But everyone had to do it so I didn't have a choice. A talent agent came and watched it and later gave me some work. It's funny because I'd always known that I wanted a movie career. I just didn't think that I would be in the movies.
I have a fan-base that apparently like you know, people...it's not that they look up to but you have certain figures that, you know, you'd like to be more like and people really love Bella and I do too but I'm not her...I don't think anybody expects me to try to just for the rest of my career appease an audience that once liked "Twilight", you know what I mean?
Someone once told me it's more important what you turn down than what you take, and I think that rings true, especially when you're trying to make decisions about how you want to be viewed. It's hard, because I also want to have fun, and if there's a project that's super-small or low-budget or silly but it happens to have friends involved, I'll always take it, because my number-one priority is that I want to have fun with my career.
At a really young age you just play ball and you have fun and you don't see basketball as something as a career, it just drives you crazy. But as the years went by and the goals got bigger for myself you realize that without almost being obsessed you won't reach those goals. So the older I get I think the more I realize that it's almost necessary to get to that level.
I never wanted anyone to know about me and Osama [Bin Laden]. I wanted that to be a secret that I carried to my grave, and since I wasn't the one who revealed it'it's definitely something that I wish was in the closet. It's destroyed my career.
And I didn't, that's why my career was very short lived.
Having designed and built several clocks during my career it suddenly occurred to me that when you look at the face of a clock both hands have the same center.
When I was straight, I had the courage and energy to become an actress. I owe my career to my will to stop using.
A strong mentor can help a young woman find and advance in the career of her dreams that otherwise may have seemed impossible.
I feel like everyone directs their own career according to their taste, what they migrate to emotionally and what kind of artists they want to work with.
I built my entire career off of teen comedies. I was in 'Bring It On'.
I am the richest person alive (or at least one of!) because I get to do what I love as a career.
The closet exists because people don't talk about it, so that people going into political careers make a calculation early on. They say to themselves, "well, the closet is under the radar, I can do this."
