#Quote
1I was born on Planet Earth.[2015]
2Well, you have to think positively, number one. And do what works for you, number two. Stretching, you can do all kinds of different stuff. Some people can not do 100 push-ups, they get tired, but I can. I don't encourage people to do something that hurt themselves. Enjoy yourself and think positively. If somebody is negative, just let it go, you know? Don't listen to something negative, let it go.[2015]
3I like a lot of classic movies, like, for example, Citizen Kane (1941), James Dean movies, etc, etc.
4I like acting better than anything else, but, you know, directing's good.
5I'm not here to criticize anyone.
6I'm not a god, I'm just a simple guy.
7I studied movies for many years, but I am professionally an actor because I, my background is actually a stage actor and acting.
8We have many Lisas, Marks, Dennys, Johnnys, and other characters from The Room (2003) in America and in the entire world.
9My background is in psychology and I'm also a stage actor. That's my background.
10When people sometimes misquote me, I don't know if they understand what I'm saying.
11I'm satisfied with the way The Room (2003) turned out, and I don't want to change anything.
12As a director, it's my job to provoke, and when people decided 'The Room' be called a phenomenon, or whatever you call it, it's fine with me.
13You cannot have the drama without comedy.
14I am pro-freedom.
15I inspire myself.
16As a filmmaker and an actor, my job is to react towards people, but I want a reaction from them.
17When I was little kid, I used to want to be a rock star.
18I want to be always actor.
19When I was a little kid, I wanted to be, like, you know, a movie star, you know? Or, I always have interest in movie, you know? Because I like the visual aspect of the movies, et cetera.
20I always say that you don't have to like The Room (2003), but you will discover something - maybe a tiny little thing - and say, 'Wait a minute, maybe I want to see more.'
21As a director, I have to feel realism from actors, and they can't be plastic.
22All topics, issues, and subjects in The Room (2003) add to the depth of the characters in the movie, and they are equally important.
23Express yourself, don't hurt yourself.
24I'm going to do more movies and travel.
25I like vampires.
26I am pro-expression. I am pro - you know, as long as you don't hurt anyone.
27You can laugh, you can cry, you can express yourself, but please don't hurt each other.
#Fact

3Often drinks red bull while filming.
4Is independently wealthy and does not rely on film making to live.
