Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Rock: I love to smoke. I keep hoping someone will discover it's a healthy habit because the smoke kills all the germs in your system. I love to drink, and I hate exercise. I don't mind going out on the side of a hill and chopping down a tree, but I hate organized exercise. I built a gym in my house but I never use it. I don't even like to walk through it.

    • Rock: Someone asked me once what my philosophy of life was, and I said some crazy thing. I should have said, how the hell do I know?

    • Rock: I have no philosophy about acting or anything else. You just do it. And I mean that. You just do it. However, I can say that with ease after thirty-five years.

    • Rock: I can't play a loser - I don't look like one.

    • Rock: Why don't you put that in the headline: 'He Only Did Three With Doris!' Set a lot of people straight.

    • Rock: I'm notorious for giving a bad interview. I'm an actor and I can't help but feel I'm boring when I'm on as myself

    • Rock Hudson: I like to work with new actors; it's sort of a little game I have with myself. I love to watch them, to see what they do, what they come up with, if they're inventive. Their ideas may not work all the time, but it's important that they have something more than an ability to memorize lines.

    • Rock Hudson: Fright is one of the worst things in the world. I've been plenty frightened at times, like when I was in an automobile accident, a head-on collision. I remember I was so frightened my hands wouldn't work. A terrible feeling, like a disease you can't control. I don't like things I can't control.

    • Rock Hudson: I had to overcome the name Rock. If I'd been as hip then as I am now, I would have never consented to be named Rock.
