Martin Short…on life:
I’ve chosen to treat my life more like a party than something to stress about.”
Reese Witherspoon…on life:
Many people worry so much about managing their careers, but rarely spend half that much energy managing their LIVES. I want to make my life, not just my job, the best it can be. The rest will work itself out.”
Meryl Streep…on perfection:
All that attention to the perfect lighting, the perfect this, the perfect that, I find terribly annoying.”
Katie Holmes…on being organized:
I’m definitely a messy person… I know where everything is but I just can’t organize. I don’t make lists and I find scripts on the laundry machine, and under my bed, or in the bathroom, kitchen…”
Paula Abdul…on fitness:
Find fitness with fun dancing. It is fun and makes you forget about the dreaded exercise.”
Betty White…on exercise:
I have a two-story house and a bad memory, so I’m up and down those stairs all the time. That’s my exercise.”
Goldie Hawn…on youthfulness:
Youthfulness is connected to the ability to see things new for the first time. So if your eyes still look at life with wonder, then you will seem young, even though you may not be chronologically young.”
Jackie Chan…on work:
I only want my work to make people happy.”
Adam Sandler…on his work:
Most of the stuff I do on the show comes out of me just trying to make my friends laugh.”
Michael Jackson…on being happy:
I’m happy to be alive, I’m happy to be who I am.”
Goldie Hawn…on being happy:
The only thing that will make you happy is being happy with who you are, and not who people think you are.”
Ellen DeGeneres…on comedy:
Most comedy is based on getting a laugh at somebody else’s expense. And I find that that’s just a form of bullying in a major way. So I want to be an example that you can be funny and be kind, and make people laugh without hurting somebody else’s feelings.”
Ellen DeGeneres…on shifting to joy:
The world is full of a lot of fear and a lot of negativity, and a lot of judgment. I just think people need to start shifting into joy and happiness. As corny as it sounds, we need to make a shift.
Will Smith…on positive news:
There’s so much negative imagery of black fatherhood. I’ve got tons of friends that are doing the right thing by their kids, and doing the right thing as a father—and how come that’s not as newsworthy?”
Nick Cannon…on Will Smith:
To be compared to Will Smith is probably one of the coolest things because that’s who I came up admiring.
Jack Black…on eyebrows:
You must never underestimate the power of the eyebrow.”
Jim Carrey…on being animated:
There was a time when people said, ‘Jim, if you keep on making faces, your face will freeze like that.’ Now they just say, ‘Pay him!’”
