Liev: I think probably since the first time I sat in a movie theatre and saw a film I knew that I wanted to do whatever I could to be in that world.
Liev: (on being rejected in auditions) Rejection never bothered me. If someone rejected me, I would just make up a reason as to why that had nothing to do with me. Which is usually the truth in a roundabout way.
Liev: If you leave certain things up to the imagination, people will put the pieces together. I think that as an audience (member) I enjoy that more. I love (wondering) what's going on. I get bored quickly in movies when too much has been explained and it's too simple.
Liev: (on the trick of reinventing himself) Try to mix it up, try to work all the time. As soon as you know what you're doing, you're doing it wrong. That's what I find with acting. As soon as it becomes padded, it becomes pat. So you just try to look for work that mixes it up all the time.
Liev: The reason I haven't really done much press is that I kind of felt like an actor kind of loses their ability to convince an audience that they haven't seen them before when they see them too much. I think that's something that's valuable about acting to me.
Liev: (on being labeled a character actor) It's not too bad. I like it. There are two things you can think about. You can think about your career or you can think about your job. I like to think about my job.
Liev: (on the image of Americans) The clichés and notions about who we are as a people really are ludicrous! Unfortunately, our government and our media doesn't truly represent us culturally.
Liev: I just think there is something about human beings, we are intuitive about people. We know if they are who they say they are. If it's a really great actor, there is a suspension of disbelief.
Liev: (talking about his mother's nickname for him) It's not easy being 6' 3" and being called 'Huggy'.
Liev: (claiming he gets very nervous around women and has always dreaded first dates) I'm really no good without a script I get incredibly nervous. I get very red and I sweat profusely.
