Great Quotes by Cristin Milioti

I really like playing other people. There is no other feeling like it, to have a different voice come out of you and to have a different life for a couple of hours. I like being myself. But maybe it’s like you ride a bike every day and someone says, ‘For two hours tonight do you want to ride this Harley?’ You’d be like, ‘OK yeah!’

I went through a really good-looking phase from birth to 9. And then things went crazy. I don’t know what happened, but between 9 and 14 it was really, really rough. I didn’t have a lot of friends. The only ones who were nice to me were the theater kids. And they were like, ‘You can come and join us. No one likes us.’

Every time I do a play, it’s as if I’ve never done one before. I’m always confused. I always am convinced I’m going to be fired. I’m like, ‘I don’t remember how to act. I don’t know how to do this.’ And, it’s just a very slow process, and then, all of a sudden, it’s just there one day. I still don’t understand how it happens.

I’ve always lived in New York; I never moved to L.A. I was developing and producing and writing a pilot for a year. That took me out of everything for over a year. When that sadly didn’t go forward, I shot ‘Black Mirror’ right after that.

I’ve always tried to have a pretty discerning eye with the roles that I’ve picked, which is maybe why it seems like I take breaks, but really, they’re not breaks. It’s just that there’s not as much out there as one would hope. I’m lucky enough to be able to be choosy sometimes.

It’s interesting to me because theater is, on any given day, 10,000 times harder than film and television. And that’s not to say film or television can’t be hard or challenging; it’s emotional to do the same thing over and over and over. But in terms of stamina, there is nothing like an eight-show week to separate the men from the boys.

I’ve never been able to keep track of an umbrella, but then my dad gave me this fancy umbrella. It was in his car, and I had again lost some awful Duane Reade disaster umbrella.
