"I like to disappear into a role. I equate the success of it with a feeling of being chemically changed. That’s the only way I can express it." —Chiwetel Ejiofor

"An actress can only play a woman. I’m an actor, I can play anything.” —Whoopi Goldberg

"Acting is my calling, not my career." —Angela Bassett

"I’ve always wanted to do characters that would help me find my connection with others and connect all of us together. You always want the energy of the character, the spirit of the person, to enter you." —Forest Whitaker

"It was never my dream to be famous. I didn’t start acting to be a movie star. I started in the theater and my desire was to get better at my craft. It’s still my desire. I don’t consider myself a movie star, nor do I really have the desire to be one. I’m just an entertainer…An actor who works hard at his craft. Whatever labels people give me, that’s not really me or part of my process." —Denzel Washington

"Your internal dialogue has got to be different from what you say. And, you know, in film, hopefully that registers and speaks volumes. It’s always the unspoken word and what’s happening behind someone’s eyes that makes it so rich." —Viola Davis

"I never studied. I never took a class. Everything I do is very innate and organic; I don’t really have words for it. It is a communion with spirit. I don’t get in my own way and allow the character to do what it’s going to do." —Kimberly Elise

"You know the five stages of an actor’s life? ‘Who’s Don Cheadle? Get me Don Cheadle. Get me a Don Cheadle type. Get me a young Don Cheadle. Who the hell is Don Cheadle?’ Every actor gets to that last one eventually. I’m not quite there yet. I want to wring everything I can out of this life before I am." —Don Cheadle
