[on advice he receives from his father, Jerry Stiller] My father is always telling me to take care of myself and get a lot of rest. He’s always saying, “Sleep will fix anything. Go take a nap”. I think he’s right. I find when I get frazzled, if I get a good night’s sleep, I feel much better about things.
(1998 quote on auditioning) It’s hard to maintain a sense of dignity in an audition. I have done so many auditions where I’ve put it out there and have been met with that kind of blank stare – “Great! Thanks! OK! Great work! Thanks for coming in!” At the door I’m thinking, ‘What the hell am I doing with my life?’
[on Zoolander (2001)] It wasn’t a big hit. It came out 10 days after 9/11, so a strange time to release a movie but I’m not sure it wouldn’t have been any bigger at any other time.
