    • Timothy: If you think of yourself as a storyteller, as I do, you want to do a full-length feature. So I feel that if there was an opportunity to direct projects and there was a guarantee to it, I could leave acting behind and I don't think I would miss it.

    • Timothy Hutton: Generally speaking, actors who are 'on the radar', so to speak, have done enough work and have been seen enough to at least be considered for a part. There are always things out there that you are being called about and so you know that if you really want to work, the opportunities are there.

    • Timothy Hutton: My dad placed higher importance on us being friends than anything else. I don't think he ever said to me, "When I was your age..." There was none of that. We were friends on an equal level. There was a tremendous amount of respect for each other. With other kids it would be, "Oh your dad's out of town, let's have a party." With me, my dad would be at the party.

    • Timothy Hutton: (on the appeal of being a stage actor) You have the whole day to yourself, and then you go to the theatre. It's also a great way to catch up with old friends: 'Come to the play, we'll have dinner afterwards.'

    • Timothy Hutton: Acting is being able to look at a situation and romanticize it for just a second, let your imagination go. But it's deadly if you do it all the time.

    • Timothy Hutton: (on the fan/actor dynamic) [It's] them knowing you and you not knowing them.

    • Timothy Hutton: (on not letting being in the spotlight make it harder to have a relationship) I don't let it. Hollywood relationships are just like relationships everywhere. It doesn't matter what you do for a living.

    • Timothy Hutton: I think it's a tried and true formula to appeal to, or exploit maybe is a better word, people's fears, those things that we fear the most and see happening in the news, these terrible stories of tragedy that happen to people. There's a fascination with these dark things that happen, we can't help it.

    • Timothy Hutton: (on the trend of movie actors coming to television) I think it's saying that television is where the material is. Not to say that there isn't great material in movies, but with the ground-breaking shows that have happened recently there are opportunities to do material in television that perhaps is more difficult to get a movie studio to make.

    • Timothy Hutton: (upon receiving the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor [Ordinary People, 1980]) This is for my dad. I wish he were here to see it.

    Timothy Hutton is a true actor. You really believe that he got into acting because he loves it for what it is. You'll never see him in any tabloids and you won't hear any gossip about him. In his roles, you sense more realism than many other actor's who are considered more talented than he. Of all of his roles in all of his movies, my favorite has to be "Beautiful Girls."moreless
