Movies and TV are America’s No. 1 export. So if our No. 1 export is all male, all white, then there’s only one point of view.

Brie Larson
Our adversaries – our Democratic adversaries – like to be able to portray the Republican Party as a bunch of wingnuts – narrow based, always have some agenda that’s not attractive to the public… That’s easier for them, and more fun, than dealing with their own problems. And I think their problems are significant.

With Superman, super powers are just ancillary. It’s that character, with all those principles and understanding… that’s who he is right there. I think I tried to portray a sense of trust and power and charisma for Superman. That’s what we believe Superman is.

Erin Gray
Every actor, has a dream role, I would like to admit Kamini Mathur is my dream role and I am so happy to portray this character.

Sanjeeda Sheikh
I portray female characters, so I have the opportunity to change the way people look at them.

I present in a way that’s not stereotypical, even if I’m playing a stereotypical role.

In a sense I portray myself in a very androgynous way, and I love androgyny.

Susan Kelechi Watson
I’m not going to get into the writer’s skills or what he was trying to portray because that’s not fair. I can only say what I felt was trying to be portrayed there.

When I thought of the word ‘Himmatwala,’ I couldn’t think of anyone other that Ajay Devgn who could do justice to the role. He is a great actor and can portray emotions, anger and action effectively.

I do not want to work to stay busy. I want to feel excited and challenged with each character that I portray on-screen.

We don’t ask the actor playing James Bond what his sexual preference is. So I don’t know what it is, really, with trying to out actors who portray gay characters on television. But it is some sort of fascination in society.

Jack Falahee
I have been lucky enough to portray many, many characters.

I’ve never really been a character on TV. I think, if possible, you want to portray yourself. If you’re in a situation where you’re supposed to react, you need to react.

Daniel Bryan
It’s not like I’m advocating that we ban ‘Call of Duty’ or anything silly like that, I’m asking is for companies to look at their hiring practices, to hire more women… and make sure they portray women in their games in a socially responsible way.

Radhika Pandit
It’s almost schizophrenic who I portray in my music.

If it is a fantasy fiction, and you want to portray a story of a vampire, you have to keep the essence of the story same. But if you have to have five episodes a week, where do we get so much content from?

Rithvik Dhanjani
I think it’s a little irresponsible for women who choose surgery to then say they can portray the average woman on the street, because if the average woman can’t afford those treatments, then she’s going to say, ‘I’m 53 and I don’t look like that,’ and start thinking she’s ugly or inadequate.

Debra Winger
I wouldn’t mind meeting some of the people I’ve attempted to portray from the olden, olden days. They probably would all have really terrible skin and horrible bad breath, and I’d have to give them an Altoid.

John Cleese
Even though the ‘Shooter’ character on TV is so close to the real-life me, I’m still playing with ways to creatively portray that character.

I was raised by very traditional Southern parents with Southern manners. You don’t air your dirty laundry to people that aren’t your family or your friends. Why would I ever want to portray myself as anything other than together?

Gisele Bundchen
Personally and politically, I’m extremely conservative for who I am, but I’m also very careful in my tone. I don’t believe just because you’re a conservative that you’re angry. I can be plenty frustrated and not have to constantly portray myself as upset and angry at the world.

Mahesh Manjrekar
Movies portray men as tough guys.

Geoffrey Canada
A lot of people say television holds up a mirror to life, and that’s why you see all the drug busts and the killings and the seamier side of life. I personally take the view that it’s not sufficient to portray only negative role models. It’s not enough to say ‘no’ to drugs. What do you say ‘yes’ to?

The target of preventive war must have several characteristics. It must be virtually defenceless; it must be important enough to be worth the trouble; it must be possible to portray it as the ultimate evil and an imminent threat to our survival.

Noam Chomsky
People think that because I write about India I must be trying to portray India in a way.

Anita Desai
The traditional villain has died a natural death. Today even a hero can portray a negative character. There are no lines drawn. The scope for actors like me has condensed.

Raza Murad
Violence is used to portray what happens in a film. It only helps portray the actors and what they do. I think it is more about the story, when you have something to play off of.

Jake Lloyd
On a film set, everything’s done for you. You get to a stage where you can’t even remember the last time you made yourself a sandwich. The crazy thing is that, as actors, we’re trying to portray the human condition, but we’re often not living in reality.

I’ve been honoured to portray such intelligent and sophisticated roles.

Big business increasingly likes to portray itself as socially concerned, adopting the style of civic action through ‘campaigns’ of varying degrees of cynicism.

Geoff Mulgan
In order to describe a particular subculture, you might want to portray people who are typical or representative of that subculture; but to dramatize it, to make it an interesting setting for a story, you want to bring someone anomalous into that setting, to see how she conforms to it, and it to her.

Jonathan Dee
It’s a rare opportunity to play a character that is not only a lot of fun to portray, but it’s also rare to play someone that teaches you something.

In my movies, I portray this ‘Everyman’ persona, someone everybody can empathize with. People can identify with a guy like me.

Judge Reinhold
I have a strong personality – I know who I’m outside my work, and I’m nothing like the characters I portray.

I really love the idea of stepping into another character and being able to sing maybe stuff that is not my thought and my own opinions, but be able to portray someone else and take a walk in their shoes for a while.

Jens Lekman
‘Hamlet’ is obviously a role a lot of actors want to portray or be involved with in some way and that I’d like to be involved in.

Jamie Campbell Bower
I hate when they portray women as just sex symbols in short skirts, running around playing dumb. I refuse to watch such films or be in such films.

I don’t like James Bond. They made him a super hero, but he is just an agent, a human being. In my movies, secret agents are more realistic, I didn’t want to portray them in the most glowing colours.

King Hu
The political world is a dark place. If you want to portray it accurately, authentically, you’ve got to turn out the lights from time to time.

Kim Weston
When it comes to how I portray myself online, I’m trying to be as real as I can and show people every side of what I do and not just put up selfies online of me in full done-up make up and stuff.

As someone who is non-binary gender identifying, I feel a particular responsibility to portray members of my community on stage and on screen, not only as fully fleshed-out characters who are integral to the plot, but as characters whose gender identity is just one of many parts that make up the whole person.

Asia Kate Dillon
Initially, women only had to portray married wife roles on TV, but now there are show that are offering other roles to portray for women. Earlier, all drama used to revolve only around married women, which is not the case now. Even the male actors have a good opportunity for better roles now.

Sriti Jha
I’m portraying out characters, I’m portraying femme characters, characters that are really outside of the box. I never thought I would get that opportunity to portray those characters at all, much less have a career that I have.

Nico Santos

Alexa Bliss
It’s an amazing role for any actor, so deep and challenging. And Anne Frank was such an amazing person, I feel honored to portray her.

Ariel Rechtshaid
The actor should understand the script and come prepared to play the role. At the same time, they should be flexible enough to take the director’s input and portray his vision.

Rajiv Menon
We live in a world of social media, dating apps, online profiles where everyone is portraying themselves in 2D, trying to look cool. Portray yourself in three dimensions.

Matthew Hussey
I always thought it’d be cool to portray these certain things, make people feel a certain way. I was kind of fascinated with that, but I wasn’t the type to do acting school or theater. I didn’t have the best views of Hollywood, so it wasn’t something that I was going to try and pursue.

Sasha Lane
I really love young Tom Hanks. He’s just one of my favorites. He’s a great, quirky every-man. I also love Zach Braff. I really love actors that are quirky and interesting, that sort of try to portray ‘normal’ people.

I wish I were as tough and strong as the women that I’m lucky enough to portray.

As a newcomer to America who learned to ‘speak American’ by watching movies, I firmly believe that to change the politics of immigration and citizenship, we must change culture – the way we portray undocumented people like me and our role in society.

Jose Antonio Vargas
Nicole Kidman in particular seems to bring out the butt-kisser in the sassiest of hackettes, as they ceaselessly strive to portray her as some sort of cross between Mother Teresa and Marilyn Monroe.

Julie Burchill

When I do my makeup, it kind of helps me get into the character that I’m trying to portray.

Shane Dawson
Having the name ‘Bloomberg’ doesn’t help me in any way… and it really is a disadvantage and takes away from the image I’m trying to portray.

Georgina Bloomberg
I am not in the business of pointing fingers or making excuses. However, recent history has shown that I, like thousands of others in Ireland, incorrectly relied upon the persons who guided Anglo and who wrongfully sought to portray a ‘blue chip’ Irish banking sector.

Sean Quinn
To portray an iconic character has been brilliant in itself, and to be able to do that on a show like ‘Once Upon a Time’ enhances that because the show puts a spin on characters and makes them very different and puts core values that are very different that aren’t in the original fairy tales a lot of people relate to.

Baker Mayfield
It’s said that most Americans under the age of 30 reflexively dislike movies made before 1970, especially those that were shot in black and white. If this is so, I suspect it’s because such films portray an America that no longer exists.

Terry Teachout
The World Cup tournament overall and, naturally, the new stadiums at its heart, are the ideal platform to portray Germany as a positive and exceptional location, and above all of course, as a highly capable economic location.

Franz Beckenbauer
Immigrant characters now are getting much more well-rounded, and they have personalities, which is important because we do need to portray immigrants in a humanizing way.

Jimmy O. Yang
Most of the comedy characters I played have been extensions of my own personality and very similar to Mike Channel. It’s a weird eclectic mixture of your genuine character and the character you portray.

What we’re supposed to do as actors is be able to portray real human beings and emotions. And if you grow up in this bubble of showbiz and you only know people who make movies, you don’t really have an understanding of the world outside.

Emily Browning
Some of the most hard-working, generous people I’ve met in my whole life didn’t really want to vote for him but did. My calling is to step onto the other side and humanise and portray the struggles of many Trump voters.

Chloe Zhao
The best part? Probably being able to portray such a respectable, ethical, intelligent, strong woman. That’s still pretty rare in our business, unfortunately.

Catherine Bell
As a young artist in New York, I thought about postwar Japan – the consumer culture and the loose, deboned feeling prevalent in the character and animation culture. Mixing all those up in order to portray Japanese culture and society was my work.

Takashi Murakami
Anything that exists on the human palette is, from my point of view, fair game for artists to portray. You don’t have to go see it if you don’t want to, so don’t go.

Tobin Bell
My opinion is that the movie business should show an accurate picture, but I think the responsibility lies in the educational system. Most of the educational material I’ve seen on the Native American does not portray an actual picture.

Michael Horse
They portray me as a hick just because I enjoy some of the things people in Oklahoma like. I think people expect me to come out wearing my boots and spurs.

Troy Aikman
To portray not only a boxer but a boxer like Roberto Duran, I needed to understand all the difficulties and the pressures of the sport itself.

Edgar Ramirez
One of our worst traits in journalism is that when we have a narrative in our minds, we often plug in anecdotes that confirm it. Thus we managed to portray President Gerald Ford, a first-rate athlete, as a klutz.

Nicholas Kristof
As time has gone by, I have looked more and more like Paul Revere than the alarmist my critics have sought to portray.

Peter Navarro
I have done and want to do roles that portray women in a strong light and inspire those women who think they are weak and helpless.

Sanam Saeed
Much of social media can be seen as the ‘News of me.’ It’s not so much a platform for connecting and sharing as it is a platform for advertising the idea of yourself you want to portray to others: the image of yourself you want to project.

I am a very blessed actor because I have always got the chance to portray various characters.

Manini Mishra
Christians have always been fodder for comedians who have tended to portray them as anoraks – slightly clammy, beatifically smiley dullards with barely a personality between them.

Jo Brand
Instagram is just something I like to do. I feel it’s the best way to portray who you are.

Dawn Richard
I think most models fear growing old, but from a tender age I had always chosen to play someone grown up. I am slowly but surely catching up with the people that I have spent the last decade and a half trying to portray.

Erin O’Connor
I just want to portray a very honest character that displays traits that people can truly relate to and can help them – the audience and myself because I learn from the characters as well – help them see themselves in a perspective that is outside of what they know already, and grow from that experience.

Kristin Kreuk
It’s so fun because the Carmella you see on ‘SmackDown Live’ is so different to me. It’s great to be able to portray this character in a way that I never would in real life.

I wanted to portray Joon-woo as someone who breaks out into a song and dance in that situation, an unpredictable villain who doesn’t fit into the mold of a serious and scary psychopath.

Ok Taec-yeon
I mean, movies in general tend to sort of portray time, space and identity as these very solid things. Time moves forward. Space is what it is. You are you, and you’re always you.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Everybody wants to be a Bond villain. That is the coolest. To be able to portray a Bond villain, that is the feather in any actor’s cap.

Steve Carell
Acting – you’re taking someone else’s visions and someone else’s inspirations, and it’s up to you to portray that to everyone watching the film.

Cameron Dallas
When you watch a Coen brothers movie, it is always so certain about what it is trying to portray. That is their strength. The minute they write a word, they know how it will look on-screen. They are very purposeful, with no kind of mistakes.

Eric Fellner
The great quality of the ‘Three Kingdoms’ is that it seems to encapsulate and portray every facet of the Chinese personality.

Ma Jian
What shall I say further? Shall I not stop short and leave to your imaginations to portray the tragic deeds of war? Is it not enough that I here leave it even to unexperience to fancy the hardships, the anxieties, the dangers, even of the best life of a soldier?

Deborah Sampson
It is very easy to play a sweet girl-next-door but difficult to portray a grey character.

Payal Rohatgi
To portray a real-life character is the toughest job for an actor because one never knows which direction to flow.

Angad Bedi
I really needed a show like ‘Jane’ when I was growing up, so being able to portray a positive Latina character means a lot to me because I feel like it’s helping me to contribute to someone’s dreams.

Andrea Navedo
I don’t see a lot of movies that portray the East Village as well as I think they can.

Adam Rapp
I can be plenty frustrated and not have to constantly portray myself as upset and angry at the world.

James Lankford
How long will we show birds and bees in love scenes? The world has moved on and we should portray intimate scenes realistically.

Saswata Chatterjee
I’m very careful about how I portray violence in my films. I do believe that violence, especially violent video games, are not a good thing for young kids.

Spike Lee
I want to portray myself as myself.

Charles Woodson
I would like to portray something that would challenge the actor in me.

Nushrat Bharucha
Surrealism is my stamp. I have a post graduate diploma in theatre and I was introduced to this concept and it stuck by me because it speaks of the hypocritical nature of the reality. We are something more inside and I want to portray the pluralities in thought.

Tanikella Bharani
As actors when we have to emote, we internalise things, find moments that hurt us and portray them.

Shefali Shah
‘Vikings’ has been so many different challenges, and some of that is, at times, you have to be big and imposing and violent and vicious, and then you have be pulled back and withdrawn and just more layers and more time to portray those layers, too.

Firstly, I am not a comedian. I have a sense of doing comedy but I am a character artist. If the character in the film is a comedy than I can portray it. But, I am not a comedian.

Ashok Saraf
I never got into ‘Star Wars.’ Maybe because they made no attempt to portray real physics. At all.

Neil deGrasse Tyson
I have a tendency to think that when you portray baddies in movies, they come out more human than good guys.

Vincent Cassel
There’s racist casting, and there is normal casting. Normal casting, to me, is a process that strives for representation and, in many cases, strives to simply portray the world as it actually is instead of as falsely non-inclusive. And sadly, sometimes that involves removing the whitewash that exists on history.

Shonda Rhimes
The way I try to represent my family and coaches, I think all are characteristics the league aspires to portray. That’s just who I am.

Stephen Curry
I’ve never heard a man in a suit tell me what to wear; that’s not their forte. You hire your stylist; whatever someone’s image is as an artist is what they’ve chosen to portray.

Iggy Azalea
I find I work best as a reactor, trying to portray something on a screen musically. If I were a boxer, I’d be a counter-puncher.

Henry Mancini
Actually, you have to be a little bit in love with your leading man and vice versa. If you’re going to portray love, you have to feel it. You can’t do it any other way. But you don’t carry it beyond the set.

Audrey Hepburn
I just have a real problem with people who seek to portray fatness or thinness as moral concepts.

Julie Burchill
I always try to think of positive things to say about the people I portray, as it’s more helpful for me.

Sophie Okonedo
