Quotes of Forest Whitaker


  • ⋅As an actor, I've always wanted to do characters that would help me find my connection with others and connect all of us together. You always want the energy of the character, the spirit of the person, to enter you. I've been doing this for 26 years and some of the things I've done are always with me. /Forest Whitaker
  • ⋅I can play a man who's despicable. But I'll still look inside him to find a point of connection. If I can find that kernel, audiences will relate to me. /Forest Whitaker
  • ⋅I care about people. In the end, I think they feel it. It comes across, regardless of the character I'm portraying. /Forest Whitaker
  • ⋅I really wasn't even sure if I should continue acting. I would like try and figure out if I could be good enough to do it. It was like 10 or 12 years into my career before I felt like maybe I can do it. It was such a different time than now. /Forest Whitaker
  • ⋅I'm an actor. And I guess I've done so many movies I've achieved some high visibility. But a star? I guess I still think of myself as kind of a worker ant. /Forest Whitaker
  • ⋅In a lot of films, they're showing more complete, developed characters of diverse ethnic backgrounds. The larger concern is to be able to tastefully explore the stereotypes, and still move past them to see the core of people. /Forest Whitaker

  • ⋅It is possible for a kid from east Texas, raised in south central LA and Carson, who believes in his dreams, commits himself to them with his heart, to touch them and to have them happen. /Forest Whitaker
  • ⋅My parents moved to Los Angeles when I was really young, but I spent every summer with my grandparents, and I'd stay with my grandfather on the farm in Longview. He was retired from the railroad, and he had a small farm with some cows and some pigs. I remember part of my youth was feeding hogs and plowing fields and stuff, so that's a part of me. /Forest Whitaker
  • ⋅Stereotypes do exist, but we have to walk through them. /Forest Whitaker
  • ⋅When I was a kid, the only way I saw movies was from the back seat of my family's car at the drive-in. /Forest Whitaker
  • ⋅And God, God who believes in us all. And who's given me this moment, in this lifetime, that I will hopefully carry to the end of my lifetime into the next lifetime. /Forest Whitaker
  • ⋅It is important to make the best out of every generation. /Forest Whitaker
  • ⋅The other night I was walking down the stairs behind one of my daughters. I was tired, and she was goofing around, you know like kids do, doing all this stupid stuff on the stairs. And I was thinking, please just go down the stairs and let's get you to bed. It's after your bedtime. I've had enough for one day. And then I sort of caught myself. I snapped out of it. I was like, 'dude, you should be dancing down the stairs behind her'! /Forest Whitaker
  • ⋅I do look at that thematic of healing of humanity. /Forest Whitaker
  • ⋅In every project, I always look for the depth of humanity inside of it. I'm just trying to say if we can help in some way heal the equation with [Afro-Americans] what's going on with us as people. /Forest Whitaker
  • ⋅It's a unique experience when you're doing an independent film where you have one person who puts up all the funds to make the film. /Forest Whitaker
  • ⋅I stay true, because whatever the project is, I'm still looking for inside of that character. /Forest Whitaker
  • ⋅Until film is just as easily accessible as a pen or pencil, then it's not completely an art form. In painting you can just pick up a piece of chalk, a stick or whatever. In sculpture you can get a rock. Writing you just need a pencil and paper. /Forest Whitaker
  • ⋅I went through two schools of acting but I learned more about acting from meditating and from my marshall arts teacher. /Forest Whitaker
  • ⋅There's a thing you confront when you're going into something new and you come to this sort of abyss, and then you push yourself. It makes you try different things. /Forest Whitaker
  • ⋅I try to serve the character all the time; this one took a lot of work and was consuming. It's like climbing up a ladder and sometimes you're afraid to face yourself so you make excuses; you avoid going to the top of the ladder and look in the mirror. /Forest Whitaker
  • ⋅I like to play complex characters and the duality, and trying to reach for the light, it's more interesting really. I've gotten to play so many types of guys and I just try to find the humanity in each one of them the best I can. /Forest Whitaker
  • ⋅There was a time in my acting career, where I was trying to figure out if acting was the thing to do. You know? I was always on this journey of trying to learn more about humanity and people - using the characters and situations as guideposts. I could switch up and do another job as long as I'm continuing that same search and that same journey of revealing my connection to humanity and the universe. And directing gives me the opportunity to explore ALL these different lives and their connection to their environments an /Forest Whitaker
  • ⋅I try to be like a forest: revitalizing and constantly growing. /Forest Whitaker

  • ⋅Things are shifting; man is evolving in many different ways. The Internet has created a portal for people to connect with each other in a way they never could have before. When it comes to African-American or black films, it's different because there is a model that you can actually look at, an equation that shows that these films earn money. /Forest Whitaker
  • ⋅Because I was playing Idi Amin, who dealt with the colonisation issue, I became aware of this internalised conflict of what it means to be torn between cultures, what it means to be taken over by other cultures. /Forest Whitaker
  • ⋅I think the biggest thing that motivates me when I'm choosing a part is a role that will help me continue to grow as a person and as an artist, and a role that will deepen my understanding of humanity, and my connection to it. /Forest Whitaker
