Balthazar Getty: (on his separation with wife Rosetta in Summer of 2008) The breakdown of a marriage is a very difficult and painful experience especially when children are involved. In light of the fact that many pictures have surfaced in print and on the Internet which has caused myself and my family great embarrassment, I felt it necessary to at least acknowledge publicly that yes indeed my wife and I have separated and I will not be commenting any further.
Balthazar Getty: (on choosing projects) For me it's about the material and the director. It's a lot about the talent. I like to know who the DP is and who the editor is. The look of the film is important to me, the quality of it.
Balthazar Getty: As an actor you do the best you can, you show up every day, but it's not in your hands, so it can be really frustrating. I don't project into the future, though. It's not that I don't plan-I just don't worry about what's around the corner. I just sort of roll with it every day. That works real well for me.
Balthazar Getty: I grew up in a very liberal household. I didn't see much of my father as a kid, but my mom raised me to always have an open mind, and to realize that I didn't have to win at everything.
Balthazar Getty: I was always sort of a performing child. At 13, I wanted to be a ninja. I went to school on the bus in a black outfit with only my eyes showing. And then Lord of the Flies fell in my lap and I ran with it. But even before that, I was always puffing together plays for my mom, and I've been doing music my whole life.
Balthazar Getty: (He is part of the Walker family in "Brothers & Sisters".) I don't think it's easy growing up in any family - whether it's the Gettys or the Walkers. There are always heavy dynamics in big families.
Balthazar Getty: (on his kids) The kids obviously know they have some privilege in their life and are able to do lots of neat things. But painting markers on their face is their idea of art.
