Peter Lorre – photos and quotes

Peter Lorre

“Doesn’t it strike you as just a little funny when you think of us actors eternally putting on and taking off make-up and spending the best part of our days and nights making funny faces? When you look at it from a grown-up point of view, acting is the most childish of professions, isn’t it? The way I justify it to myself is that with me acting is like a drug and I am an incurable addict. I can’t get along without it. I can’t throw it off.”Peter Lorre
