I did theatre when I was nine, I think. Nine and ten, and that was just the beginning of my whole involvement in acting, my whole interest. I don't really remember it that well.

If it's just screaming – and I know this sounds so ridiculous – that gets old. But sometimes when there's literal chaos, it's like being in a war zone, and that's kind of exciting. You're just running through the crowd of people chasing after you and no one knows what's going on. -Robert Pattinson

Going to New York to do whatever – show business – it just seemed fun. It seemed fun to go to the big city and meet all kinds of different people and maybe be famous. It was just exciting. So I wasn't scared. -January Jones

So someday in the near future hopefully rather than having a foot or a leg amputated we'll just give you an injection of the cells and restore the blood flow.

That wasn't the way that things was supposed to be.

I've been able to find just as much interesting, exciting music through the Internet and iTunes… The personal interaction is not the same, and I'm not walking out of a store with a physical thing, so there's definitely an element that is lost, for sure. -Colin Hanks

If my real life was half as exciting as what is reported, I would be thrilled. -Gabrielle Union

One of my most exciting Saturday nights was just me and a bottle of wine and a crochet book. -Jessica Pare

If you're a female and you get asked by someone who shoots the most beautiful female scenes to be in their film, it's kind of exciting. -Norah Jones

You never know why or when the next job is coming. I actually like that. It's kind of exciting. I don't punch in. I don't have a 9 to 5 job.

Because of the incredible reputation I have, people find me exciting to watch on film. -Sean Young

What I love about the creative process, and this may sound naive, but it is this idea that one day there is no idea, and no solution, but the next day there is an idea. I find that incredibly exciting and conceptually actually remarkable. -Jonathan Ive

If you knew that your life was merely a phase or short, short segment of your entire existence, how would you live? Knowing nothing 'real' was at risk, what would you do?

Barack Obama is probably the most exciting candidate that either the Democratic or Republican party has produced at least since I've been around. He's fresh, he's new, he's insightful. -Joe Biden

I will say that walking down the street, getting on the subway, taking the elevator, if there's one or two people and they say, 'Great job, Mayor,' that is a real turn-on. I mean, anybody that wouldn't find that satisfying, rewarding, exciting, thrilling – I think they should see the doctor. -Michael Bloomberg

I just feel exciting. -Li Na

I feel like when the task is more difficult for me it's more exciting. -Victoria Azarenka

In terms of 'American Horror Story' and 'Nashville,' what attracted me to those, and 'Friday Night Lights,' for that matter, is that they felt like something innovative and something that we hadn't seen before. As an actor, that's exciting. -Connie Britton

I have a great job writing for 'The Office,' but, really, all television writers do is dream of one day writing movies.

I'm very much a creative person, but you've got to do the follow-through. A lot of people start out with an exciting thing and they want to take over the world, but really the people who do take over the world have a good plan of how to get there and the steps along the way. -Pete Cashmore

For me the end of a book is just as exciting as it is for a reader. -Lee Child

I think my best years are ahead of me and that's exciting. -Tony Romo

My life is very exciting now. -Jeanne Moreau

Casting is really exciting. With 'Twilight,' I wasn't involved at all with the casting in the original. They kept me in the loop, which was great. They'd be like, 'Hey Kristen Stewart's gonna do it' and I was like, 'Really? Awesome.' -Stephenie Meyer

The idea of going on tour for the rest of my life with old works is not that exciting. As an artist I definitely think the work in future is going to be better than the work in the past, otherwise why do it? -Damien Hirst

Coming up with something new and original is so exciting. -Adam Lambert

We start 'The Butler' in June and that's incredibly exciting for me because I get to work with the amazing Forest Whitaker again. It's a phenomenal script and a great, great role – I play his son.

If there's a 13- or 14-year old kid who is yearning for something beyond the social forces in his own world, in his own neighborhood, the library is the only place where he can go to find that.

It's always exciting to explore adult roles when the vast majority of viewers that have seen me on TV know me from 'Glee,' from something of a different tone. -Cory Monteith

To learn something new every day is still exciting! -Ed Koch

You do feel a certain obligation to shows that raise your profile like 'Downton' has. But there are definitely other exciting opportunities out there. -Dan Stevens

I spend up to two hours a day on correspondence. Hearing from fans on the Internet and being able to directly respond to the fan base is exciting.

It was amazing. -Josh Henderson

The first episodes I actually read for 'Downton,' Sybil was really intimidated and hadn't come into her own. So it's only in Series Two that she's become so headstrong. In general, I find it exciting to play strong, female roles because they're shocking. -Jessica Brown Findlay

One of the exciting things about reporting is going to places you've never been to before. -H. G. Bissinger

My novels are certainly more exciting than my own life. -Tom Perrotta

To put it simply – you know, a lot of people believe that the benefit of this job is fame and fortune. I believe that you pay for the fortune through the fame. I don't buy into the notion that being famous is somehow a good thing, or an exciting thing, or a wonderful thing. -Evangeline Lilly

I consider my girls the greatest gift from God in life. And I also love the career that I have built, lost and rebuilt.

When you have to do all the more crappy jobs before, you appreciate all the good work that comes out of that.

Making a video is one of the most exciting things for artists and fans. It's like a payoff. -Kina Grannis

As a kid, I spent an awful lot of time pretending I was somebody else. I think growing up in the 1980s wasn't very exciting so you kind of create this secret life of an alternate person. You pretend to be whatever you need to be that day, so you live in that dream world. -Jonathan Rhys Meyers

I've never gone to acting school and I never will, so I'm learning about the business from the people who are in the business. It doesn't seem like I work at all. And the unknown is always exciting. -Jonathan Rhys Meyers

I think what's happening for me, it's fun to see other things besides Facebook and Twitter take hold. The maturity of Tumblr as a real player is exciting.

It's fun to watch things like SnapChat, and Vine, try to vie to be the next thing. -Gary Vaynerchuk

When you work with David Lynch, you never know where he's going next and that's exciting. He's like a magician pulling out new tricks. -Richard Beymer

I like books that are exciting and that make you think about things as well. -Saoirse Ronan

Johnny Ringo to me was just the best antagonist that I've ever played, because I played him as a guy who has a death wish and had done everything that he wanted in life. As far as he was concerned, a gun fight was about as exciting as it was going to get. -Michael Biehn

That's been the most exciting part of the show – incorporating the magic and the acrobats and the singing and dancing to make our 'Pippin.' -Patina Miller

I'll tell you what I really enjoy. We all go to the movies, we all watch television, we know what they're about, how they work. When the main character is a cop or a spy, it's very exciting, but I also very much enjoy when the main characters are nobodies – a trucker. -Nathan Fillion

I was shy. I was painfully shy, until fifth grade when I transferred to another school and befriended the class clown. And one day he was sick and I kinda stepped in for the class clown and I said, 'Wow, this is exciting, I'm a little bit nervous.' -Nathan Fillion

It's the cross-training that's key. It doesn't let your body adapt to one stimulus too much and it keeps your workouts exciting. -Brett Hoebel

Every day, I learn something new. I think one of the most exciting things for a writer is to work on a TV show. It's like a novel. You have a really long time to develop and learn about the characters, and you can just really keep digging in deeper, every week. -Elizabeth Meriwether

The experience of both acting and producing has been wonderful. It certainly has created a full plate. But it is very exciting and rewarding to have creative input on the show. 'Reed' is about love and family and for me, playing a hand in shaping it has been deeply gratifying. -Tracee Ellis Ross

I was very shy and somewhat awkward. I studied too hard. And to have this exciting dorm life was a whole new thing. -Nicholson Baker

It sounds strange to say it, but you can be in a war zone and have a lot of fun. Even though war is essentially pain on all sides, human beings have the capacity to enjoy themselves.

From early on, when synthesizers were first introduced into music, I liked the idea that you could get a big sound with them, electronic, but like an orchestra. And I could play it all myself. That was exciting. -John Carpenter

I don't want to know.' And then it's exciting to read it and exciting to play it. -Tim DeKay

The nice thing about a series is you can end on cliffhangers all the time. You can be like, 'You know what? Here we go, this person just died, end of book.'

'FlashForward' was on the outs when I was approached with 'Happy Endings.'

It all happened very fast, but it was super exciting. -Zachary Knighton

You expect certain things. You build up in your mind how it's supposed to go down. When you get a record deal, you think you're supposed to get X, Y, and Z. It doesn't happen like that. You're like 'Oh, this isn't as exciting as I thought it was going to be.' -Lupe Fiasco

People say I've had a difficult time in life. I think I've had an exciting time in life. -Iyanla Vanzant

I'm not a fan of endless mystery in storytelling – I like to know where the mythology's going; I like to get there in an exciting, fast-paced way – enough that there's a really clear, aggressive direction to where it's going, to pay off mystery and reward the audiences loyalty. -Eric Kripke

If you say someone is thrilled, it implies talk of an exciting project. I'm wary of such talk. -Frank Dobson

If having a story that's compelling – you want to know what will happen – is traditional, then ultimately I am a traditionalist. That is what readers care about. It's what I care about as a reader.

I don't think perfect is interesting. I think what makes life exciting is the imperfections. -Mary Frann

That is still the most exciting medium for me, and I love it. -Denis Leary

Of course, it's a different story altogether being on Broadway, but it's still theater, and you have to be in front of a live audience, and that's very exciting.

The attention from the fashion world is something that I didn't expect. I've shot with Bruce Weber and met Karl Lagerfeld. Having that kind of attention is really exciting. -Emily Ratajkowski

One of the very, very exciting things I have found here in L.A. is that no one talks to you about being Scottish.

Freelancers are 'free' because they take risks – they don't like being told what to do. That's both exciting and daunting, because you have to police you. -Chris Hardwick

For me personally, I have a fear of, 'If I stop, I'm going to die.' If I stop doing the things that are enriching to me or creatively exciting to me or if I stop creating, then I feel stagnant. If something isn't growing, it's dying. -Chris Hardwick

I came to filmmaking as an actor looking for great characters and great opportunities, both of which are kind of hard to come by. It turns out I really love the process. And, it's exciting to be able to take my career by the reigns and make things happen for myself. Hopefully, in doing so, more opportunities will become available to me. -Katie Aselton

I think that playing characters far away from who I am as a person is a lot more fun and a lot more exciting, and you can play with it a lot more because it's not you and it's so far from you, so that's very liberating as far as that goes. -Lindsay Pulsipher

It's just so much more exciting to have no limits and to be able to take your character as far as you want or need to get where you want to go. -Lindsay Pulsipher

I think love's exciting and happy, as well as being able to make you sad. -Billy Idol

If people can see you in a film and not realize it's you until the very end, that's exciting to me. -Nolan Gerard Funk

Hollywood itself is a little intimidating and exciting. There's definitely a way to go about approaching it. -Tom Weston-Jones

It seems to realize itself to be some of the most exciting TV and films that are made. Sci-fi just has that ability. -Mark Sheppard

The post-'Merlin' era is an exciting time to look forward to. Variety is the spice of life. That's the fantastic thing about acting – all the different challenges it can provide you with. To limit yourself just to one would be foolish; therefore, I'm looking forward to different things that come my way. -Bradley James

I love baseball. I love watching baseball. As a broadcaster, I get to watch the best 700 players put on the uniform year after year. That, to me, is exciting. -Bert Blyleven

I can't imagine a more profoundly exciting experience than I had working on 'Avatar.' And whether I'm ever part of it again, I'll always be very proud that I was a part of it. -Stephen Lang

Being on film is forever. Television, as well, just lives on and on and on, which is really exciting. But then with theater, it's like an experience. You have to be there that one special night that was like that to see that one performance that was really remarkable. It's more intimate as well. So I like them both. -Bridget Regan

At the high school level, the coaches get these kids in revenue-driven sports and take them away from baseball. There's so much pressure on these kids to even play spring football. We need to get the African-American players back in the game, which I think would make it not only a better game, but more exciting and entertaining for everyone. -Pat Gillick

For me, acting was always a way to explore emotions – to dip into the well and really try to reach rock bottom down there. That was the most exciting part of it. I hadn't found anything that really allowed me to do that until I came upon acting. -Jessica Lange

I suppose whenever you go through periods of transition, or in a way, it's a very definite closing of a certain chapter of your life – I suppose those times are always going to be both very upsetting and also very exciting by the very nature because things are changing and you don't know what's going to happen. -Daniel Radcliffe

Sometimes, to keep things exciting, I decorate my house as if I owned a child. I'll toss a tiny pair of shoes in the hallway or lean small wooden crutches in what I refer to as 'the baby's room,' which is actually a tiny space where I make things. I continue to call it the baby's room because it confuses people and it's creepy. -Amy Sedaris

There have been women who stumbled across Feministing randomly, through a bizarre Google search or something, and had no idea what feminism was.

I get up really early, and I go to bed really late. Sometimes I get tired, but it's not important. I have an exciting existence, and there's so much to do. -Martha Stewart

For so many years, I've been an actor acting in other people's movies, and in 'Unstoppable,' I'm producing it, and I have an opportunity to create some of that excitement with style and form and different color templates and things like that. So, as an artist, it's really exciting. -Kirk Cameron

The most likely explanation is the most practical. 'Macbeth' is a very popular play with audiences. If you want to sell out a theater, just mount a production of 'Macbeth'. It's a short play, it's an exciting play, it's easy to understand, and it attracts great acting. -Ian Mckellen

I don't know if I'd want to be a Secret Service agent. In the movies, it's exciting and romantic and all that. Really, most of their job is standing in a hallway for 12 hours making sure somebody doesn't come through a doorway off of a stairwell. -Dennis Quaid

When I'm singing 'Deanna,' for example, which I sing pretty much every night, it brings forward a kind of imagined, romanticized lie about this particular person, which I find really comforting and exciting to sing about. -Nick Cave

If someone said, 'You can go live in this little town in Costa Rica for a couple of weeks and all you've got to do is sing for us,' I would do that. That's more exciting to me than the prospect of going on some national tour, where you're going to play arenas or sheds every night, because of the crushing repetition of that kind of line. -Jackson Browne

One thing that is exciting about fashion is the surprise element. People don't know what they want. They just know when they see it. -Marc Jacobs

For me, it's the unexpected and surprising combinations of produce that are the most exciting and lure me into the kitchen for a little bit of experimenting. Apples and sweet potatoes together? Who knew? Carrots with grapes? Okay. I may not be Julia Child, but I can do pretty well with a simple recipe and a lot of enthusiasm. -Marlo Thomas

'Orphan Black' allows for people to have debates and theories and allegiances to different characters – to trust characters and hate other characters – but it doesn't tell you who is good or bad or right or wrong. That's the most exciting storytelling, in my book. -Tatiana Maslany

I'm at the transition place myself, still playing high school girls but moving to a stage when I'm playing older roles and going to the places of stillness and wisdom and knowledge and weight. It's exciting and scary. -Tatiana Maslany

It's always been my dream to just continually do really cool indie movies, character-driven stuff. I would love to do more theater on a larger scale.

I read science, because to me, that's extremely exciting. It's like a great detective story, and it's happening right in front of us. -Alan Alda

I think 'Disney Infinity' is exciting. It's hard to even call it a video game, because it's so different. What excites me about this is how it's going to put more and more of what happens in the game into the hands of the user; it's up to them. You can play it to where everything's laid out for you. -John Lasseter

Some of the most exciting space education in the country is not coming out of Washington or New York or California or even Texas. It's coming from a place in Kansas called the Cosmosphere. -Gene Cernan

You look at Moto3, the races are very exciting. Moto2 is fantastic, and then MotoGP is boring. -Valentino Rossi

Ultimately, jokes are this really special thing that we can all share. It's exciting to have basically a thousand people in a room together that can laugh at the same time, but I think of it almost as, like, a religious experience. -Mike Birbiglia

Making a film is beyond exciting. It's so exciting, it's exhausting. -Mike Birbiglia

Degree actually came to me and asked me if I wanted to be a part of their campaign, and I thought it was just really exciting and important, obviously to my fans, and growing up I had tons of OMG moments. I get to share my own moments through video blogs. -Ashley Tisdale

I've been many times to Dubai and the U.A.E., and I have friends that live there. It would be exciting to stage world heavyweight championship fights in the Arab world. It's something Muhammad Ali achieved when he fought in Zaire or the Philippines. It's absolutely exciting to fight in countries where you have never fought. -Wladimir Klitschko

I hope what's different for not only the channel 'It's Grace' 2014, but for the brand overall, is I hope to continue to expand into other areas of creative content and original content. We have 'Camp Takota' coming out on Valentine's Day – we're all so pumped for it! It's so exciting! -Grace Helbig

Film can be exciting, but more often, it's tedious. -Mara Wilson

It's sad that some people who have one exciting moment spend the rest of their lives rehashing it. -Jonathan Kozol

I'm engaged in food on so many levels, and I love that. So my work, my craft, is around food, and writing is one aspect of it; communicating a narrative, cooking online is one aspect of it; solving the food chasm that we have in Harlem and finding a farmers market is another one, and all of them are equally exciting for me. -Marcus Samuelsson

Often, what makes my job so exciting is designing for the mother whose dream has been to wear one of my hats at her child's wedding. I feel as responsible for making her feel like a million dollars as I do for somebody in the public eye. -Philip Treacy

When a character has as wide an audience and as rich a history as Batman, it's truly exciting to see him introduced into an all-new storytelling medium. BATMAN LIVE will bring a completely new experience to fans of the character – it's great to be able to give them something they haven't seen before. -Jim Lee

There was a time when going out to parties and dinner parties and clubs was an exciting thing to do. I'd wake up in the morning and immediately think, 'Now what am I doing tonight?' Now I'd be more likely to reach for a book. -Gina Bellman

I've done a lot of different tours. For me, I try to go on tours that I think are gonna be fun. It's, like, grueling, and it's hard, and there's got to be an element to it that's exciting. -Kelis

I love lifestyle stuff, I love housewares. I'm really a homebody, honestly. Anything to do with my kitchen, or my house, I'm all about it. I'm working on a sauce line, so that's kind of exciting. I'm a saucier. -Kelis

Neuroscience is exciting. Understanding how thoughts work, how connections are made, how the memory works, how we process information, how information is stored – it's all fascinating. -Lisa Randall

An almost indispensable skill for any creative person is the ability to pose the right questions. Creative people identify promising, exciting, and, most important, accessible routes to progress – and eventually formulate the questions correctly. -Lisa Randall

I always accessorise with jewellery. I am a bit of a magpie; I love sparkles, and so wearing jewellery makes me feel more exciting and confident, too! -Amber Le Bon

My heart's in stage. Making 'Quadrophenia' was exciting because we were riding around on scooters with no crash helmets. But 'hurry up and wait' is the anthem of films. Everybody wants you ready, and then you sit doing nothing. -Phil Daniels

I was friends with Russians who said I should see Russia. I went there in '93 and it was so exciting, and I went to Siberia and had a great time. -Ian Frazier

America to me is so varied and exciting. I always feel nostalgia for the place I'm not in, and then I get there and find myself in a traffic jam going into the Lincoln Tunnel, and I think, 'God, why was I romanticizing this part of the country?' I think it has to do with the romantic, unrealistic temperament. -Ian Frazier

Theater is exciting because it is collaborative, but it is also exhausting for the same reason. -Mark O'Donnell

When you tell people you're in history, they give you this pained expression because that was the course they hated in high school. But history can be exciting, intellectually rigorous, and fun. -Robert Darnton

Nothing is more exciting than being around new talent when it emerges. -Michael De Luca

The year has 365 days, and I want each and every one of them to be exciting. -Mario Testino

My relationship with M&S continues to be an exciting journey, from modelling to designing my online range. -Twiggy

Being young isn't about age, it's about being a free spirit. You can meet someone of 20 who's boring and old, or you can meet someone of 70 who's youthful and exciting. I met Fred Astaire when he was 72 and I was 21, and I fell in love with him. He certainly was a free spirit. -Twiggy

Cities are about juxtaposition. In Florence, classical buildings sit against medieval buildings. It's that contrast we like. In Bordeaux, we built law courts right next door to what is effectively a listed historic building, and that makes it exciting. -Richard Rogers

'Iron' Mike Tyson is the last boxer who was truly embraced by the media. They followed him around. You didn't know what he was going to do next: bite you, cut you, fight you. When you think about it, that defines him – it was an exciting adventure. -George Foreman

There's no reason for anybody to jump out of bushes to take pictures of me. I'm not doing anything exciting. -Sarah McLachlan

I'm not an artist, and I want to take risks, and when the possibility of failure occurs, it's because the idea is all exciting or interesting as a high wire act, and sometimes you've got to fall off, just by virtue of the fact that you're constantly trying to evolve and do new things. -Peter Morgan

The science supporting the relationship between carbohydrates and dementia is quite exciting, as it paves the way for lifestyle changes that can profoundly affect a person's chances of remaining intact, at least from a brain perspective. -David Perlmutter

I think you must be running away from something pretty enormous if you don't want to see a person more than once or twice. I think relationships don't get interesting for quite a while. When the initial heady rush fades, that's when it gets really exciting. -Greg Wise

Toledo is better than exciting, it's happy. Because nothing is more conducive to unhappiness than taking yourself seriously, and taking yourself seriously is difficult when you're baseball team is the Mud Hens. -P. J. O'Rourke

The thing with 'Pippin' is not to over think it too much. If you try and overthink or plan and over-analyze – it's like with any role really, but this one specifically – you can run into sogging wet newspaper. It's just too exciting to do that. It's nice to be bounced around and surprised at almost every line that comes out of your mouth. -Matthew James Thomas

New York City life is different from all other city life. It's incredibly relentless and fast, and I think when I first got here, it was incredibly exciting. It was also so hot. I didn't know New York got so hot. I'm not a fan of the heat! -Matthew James Thomas

Anybody who sits down to write, and they think 'thriller,' maybe shouldn't be thinking that way. Maybe we should be thinking 'novel,' maybe 'thriller' way in the background, but that these are real people to whom things are happening. It just happens to be a hell of an exciting story. -David Morrell

I have been listening to the Stooges' self-titled first album for well over half my life, and it remains one of the most exciting and essential records I have ever had the good fortune to come into contact with. -Henry Rollins

Right after 'The Wackness' came out, it was a really exciting time, and then it was a bit disappointing when it came out. Even though not that many people saw it, I was still getting offered some movies. I was thinking that people would just stop calling me since it didn't do very well at the box office. -Jonathan Levine

There are some designers who flash and burn – Courreges is an example of that. But he still marked fashion history. And I don't think that longevity is always a badge of honor. Modern brand management means that we are always celebrating birthdays, when what is exciting about fashion is innovation, not repetition. -Suzy Menkes

To me, the main and most exciting thing about photography is to meet people. The picture is the result of what happened between me and them on the set. -Francesco Carrozzini

My first three novels were all the subjects of intensely exciting flurries of calls from producers and even stars' production companies, and once someone actually hired a screenwriter to adapt one of my books – but it all came to nothing, so I tried not to get too excited when a Hollywood suitor came calling for 'Admission,' my fourth novel. -Jean Hanff Korelitz

It's a great feeling to be wanted, but it's more exciting to be inaccessible. -Shreya Ghoshal

Any time you learn something new about your character, that's really exciting. -Judy Greer

The youth in India tend to be rebellious, as with everywhere else, and that makes Shiva exciting. He has the rebellious qualities that the youths like. -Amish Tripathi

Middle English is an exciting field – almost uncharted, I begin to think, because as soon as one turns detailed personal attention on to any little corner of it, the received notions and ideas seem to crumple up and fall to pieces – as far as language goes, at any rate. -J. R. R. Tolkien

If you get a script and it's really well written, that's always exciting. -Amanda Abbington

I have the best job in the world. I wake up every morning energized at the thought of running Rio de Janeiro, the most exciting city on the planet. -Eduardo Paes

I guess I'm a good manager now. Moreover, I'm loving the concept of donning the producer's hat. It's all very exciting as well as a great learning experience. You're a part of a film right from its conception to its execution, and that's an amazing feeling. -Malaika Arora Khan

It's always exciting to play characters who are obsessive because all their energy is so focused on that one thing and they're eccentric because of it. -Robin McLeavy
