Motivational Quotes from Christopher Mintz-Plasse

I’m a big Tom Hardy fan. He dresses pretty stylish, right?

Christopher Mintz-Plasse

I worked with Seann William Scott on ‘Role Models,’ and his arms are tatted up. He had to come to set an hour-and-a-half early to get them covered. It’s not worth it. I want that extra hour of sleep.

I do love horror movies, but I’m not the kind of guy who would dress up as a ghoul for Halloween. I might go as a member of the Blue Man Group.

I just hated school. I don’t like to learn. Don’t teach me anything!

Christopher Mintz-Plasse

I was never really a nerd. I’m not really into comic books or Dungeons and Dragons or any of that kind of stuff. I was in drama class, and I’m a big movie and music buff. And I’m into sports.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse

I can shoot a three pointer in basketball, and I can kick a soccer ball.

I have very young looks, so it’s easy for me to play high school, but I’m trying to stay away from high-school movies. As I get older, I’ll try and broaden my talents.

I’m just glad I’ve had these opportunities to be geeks in some really awesome movies.

My favourite word? I think, delicious, because it sounds so delicious. You say it, and you just wanna eat a chocolate bar.

I met Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I’m not really star struck by actors, but musicians, that’s when I get star struck. Chad Smith is my number one drum influence, so that was a real mind-blow. I spoke to him – proper English, thank God!

When I was 16, at night I went to my high school and chucked rocks at the billboard sign and broke the light bulbs. That was fun.

The Weezer ‘Blue’ Album is a classic. I think My Morning Jacket’s ‘Circuital’ is a great album to have. Any Led Zeppelin album. Pink Floyd ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’ or ‘Animals.’ I always catch myself at concerts being like, ‘Oh, I just stared at the drummer for 15 straight minutes.’ I study them.

One of my favourites is ‘American Beauty.’ Spacey is so good in that.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse

Stoller is one of my favorite comedic directors – one of my favorite directors that I’ve worked with to date.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse

I think the thing about acting and making music is that it’s easy to do both. I’ll shoot a movie for three months, and then I won’t have to work for however long I want to. So, I can do a movie for a couple of months and then come and do music for a couple. But whatever’s hot at the moment is what I’ll gravitate toward.

It’s awesome, because in live-action, most of my comedies have been rated R, so I’m trying to make adults laugh. While animation is a completely different world where you’re trying to make children laugh. So that difference is a blast to do.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse

In animation, no one gets to see your face, so you can really mess up with your voice like I did ‘ParaNorman;’ I was a bully in that, which was so much fun to do. In ‘How to Train Your Dragon,’ I’m a little Viking character. So, it’s kind of exciting to play these roles that you normally wouldn’t get to play in a live-action movie.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse

There’s no real downside to any sort of work that I do. I’m all so grateful for it, but I wouldn’t say that animated work is just a walk in the park. It is easy, it’s really fun, but I don’t know why I really stress myself out every time I’m about to go in.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse

It’s an honor when someone writes for you. That means they can hear your voice in their head.

People still remember Sean Penn as Spicoli from ‘Fast Times At Ridgemont High,’ and if I can have, like, one-10th of his career, then I’m fine.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse

I had been doing all my school plays, elementary school, middle school, and high school, and then summer. I’d wanted to act for a long time, and I thought I was going to go to college and do theater, go that route. But ‘Superbad’ kind of fell on my lap. I was very, very lucky for that.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse

I was Aladdin, and then I was Captain Von Trapp from ‘Sound Of Music’ when I was 7 or 8, and then King Arthur. I was always the lead. I’ve always enjoyed being onstage, acting obnoxious, being someone that wasn’t me, hiding behind a character.

I’m a guy who’s passionate about singing, but I can’t sing for crap.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse

There are days I like going out, and days I like to sit naked with the remote control on my thigh, watching ‘Breaking Bad.’ I’m in love with that TV show. And ‘Louie’ on FX. And ‘The Newsroom’ – well, I don’t know if I like it, but I’m obsessed with it. It’s so Sorkin-y. But I’ve got some friends on there, so it’s good to support them.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse

My first ever sex scene in a movie was in ‘Superbad.’ Because I was 17, for legal reasons my mother had to be on the set. It was real awkward, but it worked out OK because when I watched the movie with her, the sex scene wasn’t awkward because she’d been right there when it happened.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse

Superbad’ was my first movie, but I’ve been acting since I was seven.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse

How can the human race be, like, the only living form in the universe? There have to be other life forms out there. I believe it.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse

I never got a chance to take advantage of ‘Superbad’ at school because I graduated before it came out, so I never got to use any of my fame to pick up girls and go to cool parties.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse

I never really think about what people are going to think of the movie afterwards. Or what people are going to call me. I just want to make a great project, and my focus is really all on that. And then I really don’t read reviews. Like, you know, go on comment boards or anything.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse

I just love doing movies that I would want to see in theaters.
