"The thing that really matters to the older Hollywood establishment is they don't care if you're an ax murderer, if your film is No. 1 at Christmas you're going to get invited to all the parties. You're either on the A-list, the B-list or the C-list. Until I make movies that make $200 million, I'm going to be underneath Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe and some of these other guys. But I'm still on that list. Just down a little bit. Until I jump back up, no one cares." -- John Cusack (Bizarre Los Angeles)

"There's no reason not to do one or two films that are more commercial in nature and then try to make them as good as you can. It may not be the way I want it to be, but it's the way it is." -- John Cusack (Bizarre Los Angeles)

“Someone asked, ‘You’ve played so many comically dark characters ... are you OK?’ I thought they were trying to assess my psychological state of making movies back then, but much more intricately. I thought, ‘Well that’s pretty interesting. You’ve really paid attention.’ I didn’t know whether to be insulted or flattered. But it’s all very sweet.” -- John Cusack (Bizarre Los Angeles)

"I try to avoid the celebrity culture as much as possible, but you can't totally get away from it. You get good tables in restaurants, and you can get good tickets to sporting events, but that's about it. It surely doesn't solve any of life's problems. In fact, it does the exact opposite. It makes your problems harder to overcome. Spiritually, being famous is completely worthless, I think." -- John Cusack (Bizarre Los Angeles)“I try to avoid the celebrity culture as much as possible, but you can’t totally get away from it.
