The only person who can, with impunity, make the movie he wants to make, has got to be Steven Spielberg.
Frank Darabont
When kids like Steven Spielberg were eight and nine and 10, they had little cameras, and that’s all they wanted to do. When I was 10, I was in my attic pretending to host my own variety show. Spielberg wasn’t. That’s why he’s a film director, and I’m doing what I’m doing.
Martin Short
When I was in high school I saw Steven Wright, a brilliant one-liner comedian, and I thought: ‘That’s what I should do; I should write one-liners.’ And I did. My first album is mostly one-liners.
Mike Birbiglia
Steven Tyler isn’t in Aerosmith anymore, but his gravestone will probably say something about Aerosmith.
Patrick Stump
Steven Tyler is awesome. He is so humble. He’s really sweet and coming from him and his career, it’s amazing.
Ashthon Jones
I’m a huge fan of ‘Buffy,’ ‘Angel’ and ‘Doctor Who.’ People like Joss Whedon, Russell T. Davies, and Steven Moffat are really amazing about making you feel like you had a complete meal and yet leaving you hungry for more.
Andrew Kreisberg
I even used to play as Liverpool on the PlayStation on ‘FIFA’ when I was 18 or 19, as Steven Gerrard, Sami Hyypia, Jamie Carragher, Michael Owen, and Xabi Alonso.
Mohamed Salah
Steven Spielberg is unique. I feel that the kinds of movies he loves are the same kinds of movies that the big mass audience loves. He’s very fortunate because he can do the things he naturally likes the best, and he’s been very successful.
Francis Ford Coppola
As soon as I was obedient to just taking a chance on God, all of these things that you’re seeing – ‘Black Panther’ or ‘Humans’ or ‘The Commuter’ or Steven Spielberg – it came right after I took that break.
Letitia Wright
I had a lot of idols like Fernando Torres, Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher, and Xabi Alonso – all of them. I really looked up to them.
Trent Alexander-Arnold
My first name used to be Leslie. I snipped that off and put my middle name, which was Steven, in the front.
Steven Berkoff
Little Steven – the songwriter, producer, and arranger – stayed alive doing the ‘Lilyhammer’ score. That pretty much took up three or four years of my life, and all of my musical energy went into that.
Steven Van Zandt
One evening, Mike Myers and Steven Spielberg were discussing ‘Goldmember,’ and I just happened to joke, ‘If you need a Japanese character, let me know!’ The next day, they called me for audition! I find it’s always helpful to maintain a sense of humour.
Nobu Matsuhisa
I want to do an album with Steven Seagal.
Action Bronson
Steven and I have worked together a lot and I’m far ahead of the curve than most people in knowing what he wants, but he knows far more than I know about what’s important for the story. So, most of the changes he will make will involve story changes.
Dennis Muren
I love ‘The Walking Dead.’ Steven Yeun who plays Glenn, is from Michigan and is a really close friend of mine as well.
Andre Drummond
I really liked ‘Super 8’. If Steven Spielberg is an executive producer of anything, you know that it’s going to be amazing!
Chandler Riggs
My granddad used to mind me at weekends, and if the game was on, and you wanted to get across the room, you had to crawl under the TV. So I’ve always been a Liverpool fan, and meeting Steven Gerrard was massive for me. He knew who I was before we’d even said hello!
Katarina Johnson-Thompson
I have been involved with ‘Spring Awakening’ for six years. I am 20 now – I just turned 20 in August – and I originally auditioned when I was 14 years old. I auditioned for Michael Mayer, Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater.
Lea Michele
If I feel like a night in, or if I have an early plane to catch, I like to make some chai tea and snack on dark chocolate while watching a movie on my projector and big screen. I’m crazy about all kinds of movies, especially the classic Steven Spielberg ones or ‘The Godfather.’
Cyrille Aimee
Working with David Cronenberg or Darren Aronofsky or even Steven Soderbergh isn’t really like a typical Hollywood movie. These are true artists, and have a certain amount of freedom when they work, and they’re more like independent filmmakers making their way through big studios.
Vincent Cassel
I don’t think anyone can replace Steven Gerrard, be it Messi or whoever.
Emre Can
I’ve been training super hard at the Lopez Taekwondo Academy in Houston, which belongs to my brother Jean. For me, I think confidence is the biggest thing; it’s all mental. I train with the best of the best, including my brother Steven, a five-time world champion who won Olympic gold medals.
Diana Lopez
It took me twenty years to get Steven Parrino’s work. From the time I first saw his art, in the mid-eighties, I almost always dismissed it as mannered, Romantic, formulaic, conceptualist-formalist heavy-metal boy-art abstraction.
Jerry Saltz
You have to understand, when you’re 15 and you’re doing this Steven Spielberg movie with megastars – Robin Williams, Dustin Hoffman, Julia Roberts – you know you want to be cool. I don’t know how cool I’m going to look with my belly button out!
Dante Basco
‘Jurassic’ is a legacy and a classic. Steven Spielberg created something pretty spectacular. It’s actually really interesting, when I look at it, I ask, ‘How has my life changed since being Lex?’ And I can literally walk into just about any city in the world and people will know who I am.
Ariana Richards
A career high was when I did a cover for ‘W Magazine’s July issue with Steven Meisel. So few girls shoot with Meisel in their career, and a lot of people had told me I would never achieve that, so it was a dream come true.
Joan Smalls
An ideal movie would be, like – to get this to happen, I have to work so much harder – but imagine Denzel Washington, Laurence Fishburne, Jamie Foxx, Eddie Murphy… Who else? Donald Faison. Directed by Steven Spielberg. That would be awesome.
Donald Faison
I’d love to do another ‘Indiana Jones.’ A character that has a history and a potential, kind of a rollicking good movie ride for the audience, Steven Spielberg as a director – what’s not to like?
Harrison Ford
I do get in the water, but I was ruined by ‘Jaws’ ’cause I saw it when I was 13. Before that, I used to get in the water everywhere and never thought twice about it. After watching ‘Jaws,’ I was scared of the water. I have Steven Spielberg to thank for giving me another phobia.
Catherine Oxenberg
I just love Steven Seagal for his pure – his perspective on what being a hero is: just a purely evil, cruel perspective.
Growing up, I had the weird fantasy list: I wanted to be Alice Cooper, Steven Spielberg, and Stan Lee. You have to have almost psychotic drive, because you’re going to have years of failure.
Rob Zombie
I fought some guy who looked like Steven Seagal, some aikido guy or something. The fight’s not even on my record, I don’t remember his name. My dad was there at the fight and he said he blinked and he missed the fight, so I think I finished him fast or something. I forgot all about that fight.
Quinton Jackson
I’m excited about the new judges on ‘American Idol.’ Jennifer Lopez was a real mentor to me my season and I admire her so much. And I kind of have a crush on Steven Tyler. It’s going to be interesting to see is one person going to stand out among the judges or if everyone will sort of be equal.
Jordin Sparks
Many great teams have players who have come through the youth system or have been at the club for a long time as their captains. I’m thinking of Steven Gerrard at Liverpool, John Terry at Chelsea, Raul at Real Madrid, as well as Puyol at Barcelona and Gary Neville at Man United.
Philipp Lahm
At Liverpool, I studied Steven Gerrard all the time and improved my game that way. Here, I absorb all I can from Iniesta and Messi.
Philippe Coutinho
Well, to tell you the straight honest truth, it was like a Grateful Dead cover band. I didn’t feel – and nothing against the guys – I didn’t feel that they were opening up like they should. I’ll tell you what, with guitar players, Steven has what I like in guitar players.
Bill Kreutzmann
Steven Spielberg’s ‘The Color Purple’ might as well have been about a bunch of dancing eggplants for all it has to say about black history.
Darryl Pinckney
But Steven Bochco was smart; he knew that viewers were smart.
David E. Kelley
My brothers and I came to L.A. as break-dancers when I was about 10, and by the time I was 15, I was working on this really big movie, with Steven Spielberg and Dustin Hoffman and Robin Williams.
Dante Basco
I didn’t even really know who Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg were, and my parents kept trying to tell me, ‘Noah, what is wrong with you!? This is the biggest actor and director in all of Hollywood!’ And then I was like, ‘Who cares? Whatever.’ I was nine; I didn’t know anything.
Noah Schnapp
I make video art pieces, take photographs, and dabble in acting ever since my screen test for ‘Memoirs of a Geisha’ with Steven Spielberg. But music is my first love and always will be my priority.
I can’t believe that I’m sitting in meetings with Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, and Annette Bening. I want to take on that responsibility to represent all the Rogers out there who don’t have a seat at the table. People of colour were not at the table, and now I am there, I want to change things.
Roger Ross Williams
I would like to take a moment of silence to remember all those who lost their lives at the hands of ISIS, especially Americans James Foley, Steven Sotloff, and, most recently, Kayla Mueller.
Michael McCaul
If I make two movies my entire life, and they’re two movies that – whether they make a lot of money or two people go to see them – they speak of me, then I consider them incredibly successful. I don’t need to be Steven Spielberg.
Jodie Foster
If Judge Steven T. O’Neill sent Mr. Cosby away for the rest of his life, that sentence couldn’t undo what he’s convicted of having done to Andrea Constand, his accuser in two trials. It also can’t undo what he once did for me, which was to make me believe in myself.
Wesley Morris
In 1987, I had no idea who Steven Isserlis was. We met at the Spoleto Festival in Charleston, South Carolina. It was originally just an Italian summer festival, but for the past 14 years, there’s also been a spring festival in America.
Joshua Bell
Steven Segal’s a cool dude. He’s basically a blues man. He loves playing his guitar.
Eddie Griffin
Retaining a child-like sense of wonder is a boon for creative types like Steven Spielberg and J. K. Rowling.
Nell Scovell
For me and Steven to both play for Fulham at the same time was special.
Ryan Sessegnon
My cerebral cortex, the gray matter that MIT neuroscientist Steven Pinker likens to ‘a large sheet of two-dimensional tissue that has been wadded up to fit inside the spherical skull,’ is riddled instead of whole.
Floyd Skloot
I’ve always loved action movies. The first films I fell in love with were ‘Star Wars’ and Steven Spielberg films.
James Wan
These are the two sides of Steven Spielberg: the reverent grown-up who knows when to say the right thing and the exuberant kid who loves a good laugh. Both sides are sincere, and both are necessary, for Spielberg knows he can’t feel good about himself unless everyone else feels the same way.
Stephen J. Dubner
During my time playing for England we had Wayne Rooney, David Beckham, Michael Owen, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, Paul Scholes. They were world-class players playing for Chelsea, Man United, Liverpool, Arsenal, all legends of the game.
Jermaine Jenas
Steven Adams was a very, very big fan of halal food.
Enes Kanter
I’ve always got stuff in my head in case I meet somebody like Steven Spielberg or someone like that, where I can hopefully say something to them that nobody else has ever said and get a laugh out of them.
Drew Carey
When I got on the set of ‘Saving Private Ryan,’ I discovered, to my amazement, that Steven Spielberg is a gamer.
Vin Diesel
The comedians I liked were Bill Cosby and Steven Wright, like just always as a comedic actor. I always liked Gary Larson, who’s really funny for a cartoonist, obviously.
Demetri Martin
I’ve been a huge fan of Steven Bochco’s for over two decades.
Rod Lurie
Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. Well, of course not Adam and Steve. Never Adam and Steve. It’s Adam and Steven.
David Rakoff
I don’t know what to say about it except Tom Hanks is a great person, a serious person; he’s dissatisfied in a very likeable way, in a very discreet way, and Steven Spielberg is similar in his discretion and drive. But Spielberg is calm. He’s this driven filmmaker and visionary. He really is.
Tom Sizemore
Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg are men at the top of their game, and Jackson especially is going to change the nature of film-making.
John Rhys-Davies
In the Steven F. Austin Colony, which was the first colony, Texans first established a provisional government in 1835 with the intention of writing a declaration of independence soon after.
Michael McCaul
Steven Spielberg’s name was all over ‘Poltergeist,’ and ‘E.T.’ was out the same year, which every single parent took their child to. So despite ‘Poltergeist’ being a horror movie, I convinced my parents to let me see it. It was terrifying. I guess this says a lot about me as a six-year-old, because I loved it.
Pedro Pascal
Growing up, we were very similar, but Steven got a bad injury. It set him back a year. But for that, we would have progressed at the same time.
Ryan Sessegnon
An Isaac Mizrahi fashion-show ticket signed by Steven Meisel. I rushed up to Meisel at the end of the show and asked him to autograph the card that had his name and seating assignment on it. It was an incredible moment when he shot the autumn/winter 2014 Moschino campaign.
Jeremy Scott
I love Steven Wright. I was in high school in the ’80s, and there was a lot of stand up on television.
Demetri Martin
I don’t think I’ll ever be another Steven Gerrard, to be honest!
Jordan Henderson
I can’t impress people with the pedigree of obscure French filmmakers that got me into film. It was Robert Zemeckis and Steven Spielberg. I really thought I wanted to make dumb action movies.
Doug Liman
I had written the script for Juno and apparently Steven Spielberg had read it. I can’t just call him Steven, that’s weird… Mr. Spielberg had read it and he liked it. He asked me if I would write this television show for him and I said, ‘Yeah!’
Diablo Cody
The first person to make me realize there was someone behind the film was Steven Spielberg.
Philippe Falardeau
Steven Spielberg is a talented, wonderful filmmaker.
George Chakiris
I had Steven Spielberg on my radio show.
Michael Ball
When Steven Spielberg comes calling, it behooves you to seriously consider it.
Stephen Lang
Steven Gerrard is the best player I have played with throughout my career; therefore, my ideal player would be very like him.
Fernando Torres
As someone who’s been doing a lot of classical theater recently, I loved the idea of getting to run around in Steven Alan, and not be in a corset and a wig, and not have a dialect, and get to be in a 90-minute play with no intermission, and get to do real comedy.
Lily Rabe
The thing with Stephen King is that everyone dies, and everyone comes back to life. So you never know with his mind where things go. It’s the same with Steven Spielberg, too.
Natalie Martinez
My novella, ‘The Lucky One,’ is inspired in part by my dad and also by a Holocaust survivor I interviewed for the Steven Spielberg Survivors of the Shoah Foundation.
Jenna Blum
He’s a big player, and the big players score the big goals and make the big contributions in the big games. That’s what determines a great player. That’s what Steven Gerrard is.
Brendan Rodgers
Steven Spielberg was a huge part of my childhood, like everyone’s, I guess.
Rebecca Hall
Steven Gerrard was someone I looked up to massively. I’d always try to copy him, right down to the boots he was wearing. It was his attitude on the pitch that stood out – you could really see how much he hated losing.
Dele Alli
I saw ‘Tintin’ in Europe – it is ‘Indiana Jones’ on steroids. Unbelievable. What a fantastic movie. Steven Spielberg, you rock the house. And working with those young English guys like Edgar Wright, and also Peter Jackson; what a great combination.
Harvey Weinstein
I find it amusing that every time I was asked when I will work with Zoya or Farhan, I was quoted as saying, ‘It will be easier to convince Steven Spielberg to cast me rather than my own children.’ That has come true.
Shabana Azmi
I tried to get Steven Seagal for my ‘Stepfather Factory’ video in 2002.
You’re only as good as your body of work, and everybody has issues, whether it’s Steven Spielberg or Martin Scorsese. I’m not comparing myself to those guys, but you learn more from the misses than the hits.
Todd Phillips
The iPod was once so important to Apple that the estimable journalist Steven Levy wrote an entire book about it. And then, poof! The iPod was nearly gone.
Adam Lashinsky
Meeting Oprah Winfrey, I cried like a baby. Meeting Steven Spielberg, I cried like a baby. Meeting Denzel Washington, I gushed like a crazy woman. If I don’t get excited or star struck by someone I’ve been dying to meet, it’s time to retire.
Octavia Spencer
I have an agent, John Brockman, who is an agent to many academic authors like Dan Gilbert and Steven Pinker, and he’s very good at conning academics into writing books. He pulled this trick on me.
Richard Thaler
I laughed when Steven Spielberg said that cloning extinct animals was inevitable. But I’m not laughing anymore, at least about mammoths. This is going to happen. It’s just a matter of working out the details.
Hendrik Poinar
In my teen years, I was hanging out with adults – Steven Meisel, Francois Nars, Oribe, Paul Cavaco. We had so much fun! We’d go out in New York.
Christy Turlington
Steven Spielberg, Woody Allen, you name it – I’m interested. I’m free. I’m looking for acting work. At the same time, you have to find a role you’re right for, and then there’s a slew of other actresses. That’s why I will pursue more directing. It’s like, who needs a boss? I’m right here.
Shiri Appleby
I received my undergraduate degree in engineering in 1939 and a Master of Science degree in mathematical physics in 1941 at Steven Institute of Technology.
Frederick Reines
I’m making a fresh start. That’s another reason for the name change from Lord Steven Regal to William Regal here in the WWF.
William Regal
I was 12 when I did ‘Super 8,’ and when Dakota was 12, she did ‘War of the Worlds.’ Steven Spielberg was involved with both movies, so we both worked with Steven when we were 12.
Elle Fanning
Steven Gerrard – at his peak, he was outstanding both attacking and defensively.
Gareth Barry
You know that you’re part of a Spielberg production when you’ve got some aliens involved, but you really know when you’re sitting there at a table read, and they say, ‘Steven really wanted it this way.’
Jessy Schram
I wanted to be Steven Spielberg, Tim Burton, Stanley Kubrick, David Cronenberg, Ridley Scott, James Cameron, and Hitchcock. I’d wanted to be a director since 13, and horror and the suspense thriller were the most powerful genres to me.
Jordan Peele
My target is to score more goals, not necessarily be the next Steven Gerrard. Obviously, my respect for him is very high, but I want to go my own way. I want to be Emre Can, not copy other players.
Emre Can
Stephen Hawking’s been watching too many Hollywood movies. I think the only kind aliens in Hollywood are the ones created by Steven Spielberg – ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’ and ‘E.T.,’ for example. All other aliens are trying to suck our brains out.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Look, nobody can begrudge Steven Gerrard doing what he wants to do. He has just been a legend.
Adebayo Akinfenwa
