Favourite Quote 1 from Rami Malek

“Everything has become so easy. It’s great that it’s at your fingertips, but I miss those good old days. And we’re connected, but it can be very alienating. There is this distance between all of us because we’re speaking to each other through cameras and monitors and icons and Emojis.”

Favourite Quote 3 from Rami Malek

“I always loved Hanks in ‘Philadelphia’ and ‘Forrest Gump’ and watching how versatile he was. That shaped my impression of what someone was able to do. Of course, everything De Niro came up with was always something I was taken by.”

Favourite Quote 4 from Rami Malek

“Being on a Paul Thomas Anderson film, the best decision an actor can make is to listen to Paul Thomas Anderson. Because he’s probably not going to steer anyone in the wrong direction. I would always say go with your gut on any other movie set, but with Paul, I would say go with Paul’s gut.”

Favourite Quote 5 from Rami Malek

“It’s funny to think that when you get done with an acting job, you’re considered unemployed. There are definitely times when those checks don’t last forever. I went to college at a private school, and I racked up quite a bit of debt. I was very slow to pay them back.”
