Robert Taylor

“Looks are good or bad, according to taste. My appearance doesn’t fascinate me. But I’m not the one who has to be pleased either. It’s a big help to an actor if people like to look at him but it has nothing to do with acting.”Robert Taylor

Robert Taylor 1935“I wasn’t disappointed with my screen test for the whole idea of ever accomplishing anything in the films seemed utterly remote. But I stuck to the work with Mr. Rinsdell and began to get very enthusiastic about really acting. An overnight success in pictures never entered my mind. I felt that if I did get anywhere it would come as a result of hard work.”Robert Taylor

Robert Taylor 1936“I don’t believe in making plans. It is easier and more pleasant to do the best I can, then let matters take their own course. Possibly I’m superstitious about elaborate schemes but I have a theory that you have a better chance of getting a thing if you don’t allow it to count too much.”Robert Taylor
