    • Val: (on his friendship with 50 Cent) He (also) gave me a 1965 convertible.

Curtis, you may have been shot nine times and you may be the number one rapper on Earth, but I know where you live.

    • Val Kilmer: The trick to being a good actor is getting so involved in your character that the camera disappears, the 50 bored guys eating doughnuts disappear, friends disappear.

Or the smallest.

    • Val Kilmer: Acting is not a science. Anybody who believes that their success exists in relation to their goals is deluding themselves; unless you think of a career in terms of financial goals. I have nothing against Tom Cruise, but he must have a large capacity to deal with the business side of movies.

    • Val Kilmer: I was going to movies and watching TV, going to the theater a little bit. I was, like, 'Wow, you could make a living doing this? Great! What could be better?' There isn't anything I could choose better.

    • Val Kilmer: The only time it's ever like work is when you don't like what you've done.
