Owen Wilson: I have never taken myself that seriously as an actor.
Owen Wilson: (On having his characters killed off in movies) It's funny how it usually works out that I end up dying. It sort of works out, because by the time I die, I'm usually tired of working on that particular movie, so I look forward to it.
Owen Wilson: (On the Hollywood hierarchy) You can think of Hollywood as high school. TV actors are freshmen, comedy actors are maybe juniors, and dramatic actors--they're the cool seniors.
Owen Wilson: Acting just doesn't seem that scary to me. It's just a feel you get and you do it.
Owen Wilson: I can't think of a movie I wish I'd acted in, but there are movies I wish I'd written.
Owen Wilson: (On his brothers) We were good until we started getting into firecrackers and girls.
Owen Wilson: I feel that's the way the world should be--you know, you go out for a jog and people yell your name and say hello.
Owen Wilson: (On Anaconda) I think I missed 23 of my 26 gym sessions for [it]. When I arrived on set and took my shirt off, the director took one look at me and said, 'I think maybe your character is the kind of guy who swims with his shirt on.'
Owen Wilson: I like people who get obsessed with something. For example, I'm not that interested in chess but I'm really interested in Bobby Fischer because he's just kind of obsessed with chess.
Owen Wilson: (On sex scenes) There are tougher ways to spend the day, believe me.

Owen: (On his movie 'Cars') It has come from director John Lasseter's love of cars, he has set it in a world of cars, and I am literally the voice of a race car. So it tells my journey, starting as an obnoxious race car, who gets his comeuppance and learns his lessons. It's a really Hollywood story!
Owen: This is the first ever race I have been to, and it is pretty exciting to be backstage and to see what goes into it. It seems much more technological than NASCAR which we have in the US. There's a lot of race fans here, and it struck me how strange it is that in every game, America has its own version – and it's the same with racing. I kind of wish we took part more, so we could be involved in all of this.
