Quotes by: Paul Giamatti

With 'Duplicity', I was a little bit like, 'This isn't that hard of a movie.' This isn't like some huge brain trust of a movie. You gotta be a little bit awake to follow the plot, but it's really just a kind of light entertainment. It's like those Cary Grant movies, which are not meant to be anything other than diverting. In a nice way.
Paul Giamatti
In a weird way, I like to find the quirkiness in ordinary things. I like to find what is ordinary in quirky people.
Paul Giamatti
Well, you know, when people say stuff about you, it's always really flattering. But does it mean anything to me? It's not really real to me; there's no reality to it.
Paul Giamatti
I don't mind being stereotyped in some way and playing certain kinds of guys, but if I can find something to occasionally get a break from that, that would be nice. And I feel like I manage to.
Paul Giamatti
This whole business feels kind of intense, like a bad fit. Round peg, square hole. But whatever, I'll take it.
Paul Giamatti
I remember when I was at the first showing of 'John Dies at the End' at Sundance, and I was talking to some of the people in the standby crowd who were outside and didn't have tickets. They were just waiting in line to see if they could get in. It was this whole gang of die-hard sci-fi wacko people, and they were just fantastic.
Paul Giamatti
I really only started doing film in '97. I mean, before then, I just pretty much did theater.
Paul Giamatti
As an actor, to have achieved financial stability is amazing. But I always have this weird fear that I'm not going to get any more work; it's about not having enough money.
Paul Giamatti
I consider myself an atheist. My wife is Jewish. And I'm fine with my son being raised as a Jew. He's learning Hebrew and is really into it. I will talk to my own son about my atheism when the time is right. But there's a great tradition of Jewish atheism, there are no better atheists in the world than the Jews.
Paul Giamatti
I definitely have a tendency to only see the blemishes of things, and see lots of things about my acting that I don't like.
Paul Giamatti
I was the youngest child and got a lot more freedom than my brother and sister. I used to wander, doing my own thing under the radar, but I didn't get in bad, bad trouble.
Paul Giamatti
I was never the class clown or put on shows at home. I never thought of acting as something I could do with my life. When I was a kid, I used to run around wrapped in toilet paper so I could be the Mummy. But that wasn't a sign that I was dreaming of being an actor. I was just an odd child.
Paul Giamatti
'Rosemary's Baby' is a real New York movie, even though you wouldn't necessarily think of it as one, though I do.
Paul Giamatti
I was a big 'Planet of The Apes' fan, so I was really excited about being in it. I had a really good time. I liked wearing all that stuff, and I liked playing the part.
Paul Giamatti
I still want to be the guy who can get on the subway and check out the freak on the subway.
Paul Giamatti
I find that the crazy narcissists, the selfish loons are often the most fun to be around, weirdly.
Paul Giamatti
When I did 'Lady in the Water,' the most exciting thing to me was to get to work with Bob Balaban - I couldn't leave the guy alone. I drove him crazy. He's fantastic and a hilarious guy.
Paul Giamatti
It'd be disingenuous to say I don't like attention - I'm an actor for God's sake - and it's flattering and all, but attention was never my big goal. I just like to work and have a good time.
Paul Giamatti
I suppose there must be some way in which I'm compelled to show some side of myself - or of people - that's paranoid and fraught and beleaguered and downtrodden, just as Tom Cruise wants to show that he's terrifyingly upbeat and terrifyingly heroic all the time.
Paul Giamatti
I always would be happy to make a character even more unlikable, but you know, there's a limit and if you go there, you get into a very different kind of movie, man.
