Actors look for characters. If they read a well-written character, and if they think the director's not an idiot, they're going to sign up and do some acting. -Andrew Dominik

There's only one way we're going to change our political climate and ensure we establish some respect in our discourse. And that is to show there is a real price to pay for being a disrespectful partisan idiot. -Mark McKinnon

I am just like all the jerks and idiots you know. I am just a guy that watches sports all day. -Brian McKnight

I think it's always important for academics to study popular culture, even if the thing they are studying is idiotic. If it's successful or made a dent in culture, then it is worthy of study to find out why. -Joss Whedon

You see something happen to a population whereby everyone adopts something that's just preposterous in a way that makes it normal instantly. If any one person prior to the rash of puka shells, for example, was seen wearing puka shells, he would look like an idiot. But when everyone is wearing them, it instantly makes them normal. -Steve Albini

I have multiple ideas per day, all the time. The vast majority of these are completely idiotic. Usually, I just sit on the idea for several months. And if I have not decided that it's idiotic, then it's… might be a good idea. -Luis von Ahn

There are a lot of idiot fund managers out there who add no value to the process at all. -Kevin O'Leary

I think audiences can relate to the guys I'm playing, those large-and-in-charge idiots. Or maybe I just make them feel better about who they are, or who they're dating. -Rob Riggle

The truth is that I'm an idiot. I am. I don't do things by the rules sometimes. I say things that I probably shouldn't say. I push buttons. I deserve to be made fun of. And I feel like, as soon as you can make fun of something, it instantly removes the fear. -Ashton Kutcher

You're used to having a camera in your face when you're playing a character – it's like having a mask on. But when you have to be you, you're so worried you'll make an idiot of yourself. Acting is a kind of escapism. -Sheridan Smith

To be a good actor, you have to be very smart. But to be a great actor, you also have to have a streak of, 'I'm an idiot, a complete lunatic.' -Lena Olin

Canada is a balloon-puncturing country. You are not really allowed to be an icon unless you also make an idiot of yourself. -Margaret Atwood

Detroit is drunken idiots. It was no surprise to me. I performed with Kenny Rogers for one year as his opening act, and I got to visit every major American city and notice the audience, and Detroit was one of the worst. -Gallagher

Eddie Murphy said once in an interview that nothing is offensive if it's funny. I sort of agree with that, but if something's funny and you're the subject of it, sometimes it's more offensive. If someone's insulting you, you want them to sound like an idiot. -Artie Lange

What you want to worship above youth, I think, is beauty, and beauty is so beyond just appearances after a while. Because you can be with someone who's good-looking; if they open their mouths and they're an idiot, then they cease to be beautiful very quickly. -Patton Oswalt

I think I've been called edgy – but in all honesty, there is a safety in what I do because I'm always the idiot. Unless you're just listening to buzz words and not taking into account the context of the situation, you see I'm always the ignoramus. -Sarah Silverman

I kept a diary right after I was born. Day 1: Tired from the move. Day 2: Everyone thinks I'm an idiot. -Steven Wright

Gentle reader, the Fountain of Youth is radioactive, and those who imbibe its poisonous heavy waters will suffer the hideous fate of decaying metal. Yet almost without exception, the wretched idiot inhabitants of our benighted planet would gulp down this radioactive excrement if it were offered. -William S. Burroughs

You can't really dance properly to James Brown. If you dance to James Brown, you look like an idiot. There's a lot of jerking. -Sandra Bullock

The more we're governed by idiots and have no control over our destinies, the more we need to tell stories to each other about who we are, why we are, where we come from, and what might be possible. Or, what's impossible? What's a fantasy? -Alan Rickman

I don't think I was ever particularly mean. I can certainly think of some idiotic exchanges I've had. I was accused of destroying pop music, like Wagner destroyed opera – a guy in Germany started ranting that at me. -Elvis Costello

It's a petty thing, but I wouldn't join the Scouts when I was a kid, 'cause you had to swear allegiance to the queen. I'm just not a royalist. I think it's idiotic, a hereditary principle. -Elvis Costello

One of the most important things, especially when you're leaving school, is to realize you're going to be dealing with a lot of idiots. And a lot of those idiots are in charge of things, so if you're in an interview and you really want to tell the person off, don't do it. -Lewis Black

It's a big thing now: A lot of people want to be assistants to celebrities. If you're pursuing that, you're an idiot. You're a moron. The shortest distance between two points is not a celebrity, or being next to a celebrity. -Lewis Black

When it comes to idiots, America's got more than its fair share. If idiots were energy, it would be a source that would never run out. -Lewis Black

Anybody who likes writing a book is an idiot. Because it's impossible; it's like having a homework assignment every stinking day until it's done. And by the time you get it in, it's done and you're sitting there reading it, and you realize the 12,000 things you didn't do. I mean, writing isn't fun. It's never been fun. -Lewis Black

If I put a value on my music, and no one's prepared to pay that, then more fool me, but the idea that the value is created by the consumer is an idiot plan; it can't work. -Robert Smith

One of the first exercises we did in acting class my freshman year was to stand in two rows, two lines facing each other as a class, and just make sounds and move in some completely nonsensical way out into the center of the room. Sort of make an idiot out of yourself, essentially, but to be okay with that. -Chris Parnell

When I started out in the duck-call business, my college buddies would come in and say, 'Robertson, you have a college degree. What are you doing?' Then they drove away saying, 'What an idiot!' Thirty-five years later, they're saying, 'The sucker's a genius!' -Si Robertson

Any artist who goes to Las Vegas is an idiot as far as I am concerned. Whoever goes to Las Vegas can stay in Las Vegas. -Chuck Close

I'd make a better U.S. president than George W. Bush. Bush is an idiot. I'm a better public speaker than him. It makes you wonder about the voters. -Robbie Williams

Serious and intense people, they drain you. But someone who's an idiot, like myself, they're fun. You either hate me or you love me. -Pauly Shore

I consider myself a pretty good conversationalist, but you wind up being downgraded to idiot status when you don't speak the language! -Alec Baldwin

Whatever comedian says he doesn't read comments, I never believe him, because we all have the same pathological problem to see what people think of us, and it sucks, because you try not to take it personally, and people are monsters and idiots. -Joe Mande

People look at the same passage, and one person will say this is the best thing he's ever read, and another person will say it's absolutely idiotic. I mean, there's no way to reconcile those two things. You just have to forget the whole business of what people are saying. -Paul Auster

The resistance to science is idiotic. -Seth MacFarlane

I think bare legs in winter are idiotic. Unless your naked pins are toned, tanned and veinless, it's best to cover up. There is nothing more elegant in winter than dark tights worn with matching knee-length boots and a belted trench coat. -Joan Collins

Thank you… 'Real Housewives of Atlanta,' for demonstrating a universal truth: Idiots like me will always watch idiots like you fight on TV. You will forever be in my TiVo. -Jimmy Fallon

I'm reasonably easygoing. Messing up my lines or making a fool of myself is where you find my fears. Like a lot of English people, I'm prey to embarrassment – the dread that everyone's sort of sniggering at you, that you're going to look like an idiot. I think that sort of halts us all. -Hugh Laurie

Believe it or not, I'm a bit clumsy with technology. It's probably why I'm so excited about the touchscreen – even an idiot can use it! -Bjork

I cannot live a life where I'm deprived. I'd much rather be five, 10 pounds heavier. With my luck, I'll get myself to that perfect goal weight, and I'll get hit by a bus. Then I'll be like… looking at myself from some afterlife going, 'You idiot. You could have had that agnolotti, dummy.' -Drew Barrymore

I'm always working on new songs. With the technology these days, any idiot can record on Pro Tools on your laptop. All you have to do is plug a microphone into the input jack and anybody can have their own recording studio. So I'm always down in my basement, singing along to riffs or whoever I'm collaborating with. -Sebastian Bach

A lot of stand-up comedy is embarrassing: too many idiots doing it in orange neckties against brick walls. I find most sitcoms embarrassing, too, because they seem so forced. -Tracey Ullman

I think there are different kinds of comedians, and I prefer the clowns who are going: 'I'm an idiot, aren't we all a bit like this, laugh at me.' Whereas, a lot of other comedians are saying: 'Aren't I clever? You want to be me, aren't I cool? Revere me.' Which is fine. But that's not my bag. -Miranda Hart

People come up to me and say, 'Can I just thank you for writing my life?' And I reply, 'I'm glad someone else is as idiotic as I am.' -Miranda Hart

I eat tons, three full meals a day, and I never go to the gym. When I was a child, my geography teacher said, 'You may be slim now but if you carry on eating like that, you'll end up being really fat.' Fortunately, I really don't think I've changed much in the past two decades, so that teacher was an idiot. -Gina Bellman

I was an absolute idiot, wearing polo-necks, reading Kerouac, watching Woody Allen movies, and jazz fitted right into all of that. My interest in that whole world became very genuine, but perhaps started off a bit affected – a mixture of right and wrong reasons. I was always drawn to non-commercial music, perhaps pathologically so. -Jamie Cullum

Even the dumber parts of our government are not run by idiots. These are ordinary people like us, doing a job. By and large, they're trying to do it as well as they can. Or at least as often as people in the private sector try to do as well as they can. -P. J. O'Rourke

The minute somebody joins a committee… they immediately suffer from committee brain. They become wildly over-enthusiastic, over-optimistic, over-pessimistic. Committees turn people into idiots, and politics is a committee. -P. J. O'Rourke

For a long time, I dressed like an idiot. In college, I had a fully shaved head with just two horns. Like, a coxcomb of hair that I would sculpt into two horns. I looked like a crazy person. -Kurt Braunohler

Whether you are a genius or an idiot, a thief or, like me, a Zen priest who has cultivated the mind for 30 years – the mind anyway is subject to conditions. -Zoketsu Norman Fischer

I think people will be surprised to find that I'm not as much of an idiot as they think I am. I'm not a real moron. -Steve-O

I say to you, you want a thrill, volunteer to be an umpire. I'd like you to go just work the bases some day. Just go do that. You're going to love it. Try the slow-pitch stuff. You'll love it. Ask my son – he tried it! He said, 'I've never seen so many idiots in all my life.' -Doug Harvey

If I'm sitting around exulting over traffic data, I'm an idiot. -Ezra Klein

There is no refutation of Darwinian evolution in existence. If a refutation ever were to come about, it would come from a scientist, and not an idiot. -Richard Dawkins

Christopher Hitchens was a great warrior, a magnificent orator, a pugilist and a gentleman. He was kind, but he took no prisoners when arguing with idiots. -Richard Dawkins

God looks after children, animals and idiots. -Lou Holtz

The thing about interviews is that if someone interviews you, and they're an idiot, then they make you sound like an idiot, too. They ask you stupid questions, and they bring you down to their level. It's tempting to not ever want to talk to anybody, but you can't do that. -Dean Wareham

Not a 'Mad Men' guy. Never got into it. I'm kind of a contrarian that way. If something gets too popular too fast before I can get on it, I just get really annoyed. Everybody tells me I'm an idiot; it's supposed to be amazing. I saw some of the second season; I loved it, but I was just detached. I didn't get into it. -D. J. Cotrona

I'm not an idiot; I try not to look, but I see what people say about me on Facebook. I see other things written. But I don't care. -Lindsey Vonn

I don't walk into a dinner party and say, 'You're an idiot; give me my coat.' -Don Rickles

Just as performers, I think you'd be an idiot not to utilize YouTube. -Noel Wells

All coffee shops now have WiFi. Why bring a book when you could be wittily attacking some idiot columnist on Twitter, or responding to your date requests, or posting a picture of your foot? All of that is more gripping and immediate and social than books. -Russell Smith

I try not to get involved in the business of prediction. It's a quick way to look like an idiot. -Warren Ellis

Dressing up, for me, is looking like an idiot. -Theophilus London

I would never dispute that I've been given a gift by God. That's something I've been raised to believe. I'm not an idiot: I know that I can sing, and I know that I can act. -Lindsay Pearce

It's one thing to be banal, stupid, and idiotic on the inside. It's another to have it captured in writing. -Karl Ove Knausgard

When I'm tired, I see industrial pictures. But I'll see one every two months. If I see one every day, I'll become an idiot. -Alejandro Jodorowsky

I have laughter dates with myself, where I find comics on YouTube and watch them. Louis C.K. was my first laughter date a couple years ago. I'll also watch those videos of people doing idiotic things. That cracks me up. -Inga Muscio

Anyone who posts illegal content on 4chan is an idiot. -Christopher Poole

I'm not ashamed to look like a total idiot. -Lucy Punch

You don't want to miss out on something and feel like an idiot. -Kevin Connolly

I think it's funny because on 'Glee Project,' there's that added pressure, but with 'Glee,' there's no element of competition. No one's trying to dance better than anyone. But there's that added pressure of, 'So many people are going to watch 'Glee' this week. If I don't nail this dance, I look like an idiot.' -Samuel Larsen

I was happy when I got into film school. I'd simply satisfied my ambition to show them that I could get in – nothing else – although I do believe they shouldn't have accepted me. I was a complete idiot. I can't understand why they took me. Probably because I'd tried three times. -Krzysztof Kieslowski

If you are strong and fighting the weak, then if you kill your opponent, then you are a scoundrel… if you let him kill you, then you are an idiot. So here is a dilemma which others have suffered before us, and for which as far as I can see, there is simply no escape. -Martin Van Creveld

When I started producing, I was just making music under all different names. 'Black Afro.' 'Super Grandmaster.' 'Mister Bull.' Like, the most stupid, idiotic names. 'Afrojack' was one of those idiotic names. -Afrojack

If bearing a reputation as a weirdo is all it takes to be a genius, I'm a shoo-in. Come to think of it, half the people I know are geniuses – the other half, peculiarly enough, idiots. -Todd Rundgren

Because I'm a sweet, kind guy, everybody thinks I'm an idiot, I'm weak. -Bikram Choudhury

When President Ronald Reagan asked me a stupid question once, I called him an idiot in public! I thought I was going to be arrested, but he laughed and appreciated me. -Bikram Choudhury

You treat an idiot like an idiot. -Bikram Choudhury

I knew I didn't want to be stuck in Stoke Newington for the rest of my life, hanging about with idiots. That wasn't for me. I wanted to go out and have a look around. -Eric Bristow

I suppose there must be idiots who dream of signing deals with publishers while fully intending to drink martinis in cool bars or ride around on skateboards. But the actual writers I know are experts in neurotic self-torture. Every page of writing is the result of a thousand tiny decisions and desperate acts of will. -Helen Garner

I try to create a challenge for myself in each book. And sometimes, believe me, I just kick myself afterwards, and say, 'Why on earth did you ever attempt this, you idiot!' But I'm always better for the experience. -Elizabeth George

Women, the way I see it, are very evolved people. They're more mature, they're more aware of their feelings, in touch with their feelings. They're connected to things that matter more in life. They know what's important. Men basically run around like idiots until we meet somebody who can show us that those things are important. -Rob Reiner

I sometimes think the theatre is more demanding because it requires things you don't have in films, like it requires you to make the people in the front row believe you and not look an idiot to them while the people right at the back can hear you. -Michael Gambon

I love playing idiots. I love very weird, confused women. -Jillian Bell

You'd have to be an idiot to say no to 'Hunger Games.' -Natalie Dormer

People are worried about what's going to happen to journalism – and they should be. Every day, the blogosphere is getting better and print media is getting worse; you have to be an idiot not to see that. -Kara Swisher

A lot of things I have turned down ended up being a big embarrassment. Like that script, 'The Beaver.' I thought that was one of the worst scripts I had ever read. But everyone said, 'Ooh it's on the Black List.' Yeah, well, good for it. They're a bunch of idiots. I saw the final film, and there were no surprises. -Terry Zwigoff

Rock n' roll is for the young idiots, not an old fart like me. -Al Jourgensen

I think everybody's got their insecurities and hang-ups. Everybody! Unless you're an idiot. -Domhnall Gleeson

The female characters in 'Peep Show' are not 'strong': they are idiots. As idiotic as the men. -Robert Webb

Missing out an apostrophe or two does not make you an idiot. But equating party allegiance with nationhood certainly makes you a thug. And thugs don't often notice that they're thugs, usually because they're also idiots. -Robert Webb

You can learn a lot from criticism if you can take what's constructive out of it. If you read a review that starts with, 'This person is an idiot; who do they think they are?', you're not going to learn anything from that. -Blake Lively

A lot of parts written for people of my size, dwarfs, are either foolish idiots or, like, these sages that are all-knowing, and they're very, sort of, come-to-them-for-answers. -Peter Dinklage

I want to stay in some era and remain there like a stupid idiot and see what happens when you try to pause time and not affect it. Not succeed. Not try to think ahead or think behind. -Ariel Pink

There's a thing in the U.K., particularly in London, where it's kind of the idea of subculture and counterculture and the outside and the idea that it's great to be a freak, and the freak always wins. So I think English girls are a lot less scared of being the freak or looking like an idiot. -Edie Campbell

People are trying to be smart – all I am trying to do is not to be idiotic, but it's harder than most people think. -Charlie Munger

Anybody who believes Yelp is an idiot. Most people on Yelp have no idea what they're talking about. -Ruth Reichl

Baseball is the favorite American sport because it's so slow. Any idiot can follow it. And just about any idiot can play it. -Gore Vidal

People thought I was an idiot, but I saw social networks were going to be more important, and it turned out to be true. -Robert Scoble

We've got this cultural mentality that you've got to be an idiot to be a farmer. -Joel Salatin

You look at any culture, and prohibition has invariably been an unmitigated failure. It is just idiotic to criminalise any substance, I think. -Rhys Ifans

People do sometimes ask me some really idiotic questions: 'Is your husband afraid of you putting arsenic in his food?' I replied that I have never written a book about poison, ever. -Ruth Rendell

I never took any writing classes or planned to write. But I was working as an advertising copywriter in the late '80s and thought, 'What a shame there has never been a decent book on Jean Harlow,' then thought, 'Why don't I write one myself?' being kind of an idiot and not having the slightest idea what I was getting myself into. -Eve Golden

Characters written in 1990 would be acting like idiots if they were cast into the present. For example, the reader might wonder: Why isn't she texting? Where's her cellphone? Can't she have a simple paternity test? For God's sake, look on the Internet and check him out! -Lisa Jackson

You always feel the ground rumbling beneath your feet, and if you don't, you're an idiot. Mostly because it is rumbling beneath your feet, and there is always someone who is coming up behind you who is as good, younger, and, at least as you perceive it, has more energy and more nimbleness than you. -Scott Rudin

I got fired from a movie that ended up being called 'Windows,' which Gordon Willis, the cinematographer, directed. I got fired because he refused to cast Meryl Streep, who at the time was at Yale. I told him I thought he was an idiot, and he fired me. -Scott Rudin

I was described as a dreamer, a fantasist, even as the village idiot. I didn't care. What I cared about was convincing people to allow me to go on with my work. -Ada Yonath

I have enough motivation just not looking like an idiot on national television. The fear of disappointing people is certainly higher. -Alec Berg

I learned more in the rehearsals for 'The Letter' than I have ever dreamed of know in the theater as a critic. If it doesn't make me a better critic, I'm an idiot. -Terry Teachout

'Hollywood maids' are so idiotic. They grin at everything. I told Norman Lear I didn't want to play a maid because of that 'hee-hee/grin-grin' attitude, and he said, 'Who said I wanted that?' He told me he wanted two strong women that are the black and white of the same coin. I said, 'Oh, well – in that case, I'll be right there!' -Esther Rolle

As for relationships, I know nothing. I'm an idiot; I can't get it right. -Elle King

The market, as we're all painfully aware in the aftermath of the banking crisis, can be an idiot. It has no perception of right or wrong, or even sensible or insane. It sees profit. -Nick Harkaway

Do you think I'm wandering around all day thinking, 'I must write a song called 'Three Coins In The Fountain'?' Only an idiot would do that. -Sammy Cahn

It's the typical mid-life crisis kind of thing, where you just stop and wonder, 'Should I go back to university and get a law degree?' I kind of looked around me and thought, 'What kind of idiot am I that I've just spent the last 10 years writing novels? Financially, I'm pretty much where I was when I was 28.' -Lynn Coady

At the age of 61, my hip went. I was skiing in Chile with my son, and there was a turn, and I kept falling. I thought, 'What an idiot; what's going on here?' -Michael Hintze

In my 20s, I used to cry about why I wasn't thinner or prettier, but I want to add that I also used to cry about things like, 'I wish my hair would grow faster. I wish I had different shoes…' I was an idiot… It's a decade of tears. -Melissa McCarthy

I see teenagers or people who are 21 and think, 'I was an idiot at that age.' I was running around New York like a crazy woman. Thank God I only had three and a half cents to my name. I was too immature to handle success then. -Melissa McCarthy

It's not my responsibility to make everything I say idiot-proof. -Ronda Rousey

I spent the whole first year of my career just on my legs. If you have good legs under you, then you can punch. Anybody can stand and throw their hands and look like an idiot. If you actually want to learn how to punch, you have to work on being balanced on your legs and feeling your legs under you. Feel the ground. -Ronda Rousey

I like Penny. She's cool. Yeah, she dates some idiots, but, although, so have I. So yeah, I would be friends with her. We'd have a lot to talk about. -Kaley Cuoco

A lot of authors, judging by their list, will put anything out that they finish… That's the worst model I've heard of in my life. It's just idiotic. Why wouldn't you just wait for the good ones? -Patrick deWitt

I learned early on – I can go to a shoot, and they will put anything they want to put on me, and I'll look like an idiot because I didn't say I don't like it. It's OK to have an opinion. -Zoe Kravitz

I did a pilot for a show about community support officers, and all the community support officers were pleased that we didn't portray them as idiots. -Rhys Thomas

CIA officers aren't idiots. They knew they were heading into deep water – legally and morally – when they signed up for the interrogation program. That's part of the agency's ethos – doing the hard jobs that other departments prudently avoid. -David Ignatius

I was like, 'I want to start a blog to get my ideas out and keep my brain working so in five years I'm not an idiot.' -Katie Nolan

When I wrote 'The West Wing,' the juice behind it was that in popular culture, our leaders in government are generally portrayed as Machiavellian, or as idiots. I thought, well, how about writing about a group of hyper-competent people? -Aaron Sorkin

In the '50s and '60s, a family's first child went into the priesthood, the second went into the military, and the third child was an idiot and wound up in advertising. -Jerry Della Femina

There is a special Providence that watches over idiots, drunken men, and boys. -Thomas Bailey Aldrich

Though there are some notable exceptions, by and large the persistent ranting of the Warren Commission critics, some of whom were screaming the word 'conspiracy' before the fatal bullet had even come to rest, came to remind me, as H. L. Mencken said in a different context, of dogs barking idiotically through endless nights. -Vincent Bugliosi

Almost everybody is born a genius and buried an idiot. -Charles Bukowski

Major actions by courageous and wise men will be necessary to avoid our continuing to blunder into the space age like unenlightened and selfish idiots. -Fritz Zwicky

I don't get embarrassed by the same things that other people do. I would say that probably the biggest thing that holds people back is, 'If I do this, I'm going to look like an idiot if it doesn't work out.' -Scott Adams

I have two brothers, and we used to always laugh at oblivious people. People who are so cocky and full of themselves that they just don't realize how stupid they are. And those kind of idiots really make me laugh. -Rob Huebel

Gregory Lee Johnson was an idiot. -Yair Lapid

The simple idiot's advice I give to screenwriters who say they want to sell a screenplay is, 'Write good.' -Harold Ramis

I'm one of those idiots; when I'm working in America, I wake up with an American accent and stay with it all day till make-up comes off. -Damian Lewis

If I'm going through life broke, I might as well live in the company of cheerful idiots like actors. -Peter Finch

To have drunkards, idiots, horse-racing, rumselling rowdies, ignorant foreigners, and silly boys fully recognized, while we ourselves are thrust out from all the rights that belong to citizens, it is too grossly insulting to… be longer quietly submitted to. -Elizabeth Cady Stanton

You can be an idiot and survive because you just go to McDonalds for your food, and you go to work and do some sort of inane job, which is nobody taking any responsibility – it's always up the line – and then you watch the Super Bowl, and that's it. But in the old days, you really had to know how your world works. You don't need that anymore. -Harry Kroto

I don't think people realize how much I love basketball. A lot of people think because of this idiotic comment I made that I love baseball and don't like basketball. Baseball came first because if you grew up in Brooklyn in the 1940s, that was the No. 1 thing. But if you have more than one kid, you love them both. -Jerry Reinsdorf

Hillary Clinton and her media machine try to dismiss, but anybody who understands anything about how email works – and this is millennials in particular, who grew up on the Internet – know that you're an idiot to keep sensitive information on a server in your house. -Blake Farenthold

A good script is like a work of art in itself. I've read hundreds of scripts, and good ones are very rare. If the writer has something to say, and a voice, and a plot that matches character, and an emotional trajectory that works, then I'd be an idiot to fool around with it. It's just that few scripts ever are like that. -Pawel Pawlikowski

Dr. Insulza is quite an idiot, a true idiot. The insipid Dr. Insulza should resign from the secretariat of the OAS for daring to play that role. -Hugo Chavez

Don't waste so much time thinking about how much you weigh. There is no more mind-numbing, boring, idiotic, self-destructive diversion from the fun of living. -Meryl Streep

Anybody can reach anywhere from five to 15 million people weekly making a president look like an idiot, as I did back then, or Tina Fey did with Sarah Palin… You're always preaching to the choir one way or the other. -Chevy Chase

Laughter is an important part of a good relationship. It's an immense achievement when you can move from your thinking that your partner is merely an idiot to thinking that they are that wonderfully complex thing called a loveable idiot. And often that means having a little bit of a sense of humour about their flaws. -Alain de Botton

My dad was a slightly stricter version of Richard Dawkins. The worldview was that there are idiots out there who believe in Santa Claus and fairies and magic and elves, and we're not joining that nonsense. -Alain de Botton

If you watch a guy go out on court and have a meltdown, you're not going to think, 'Oh my God, now I'm screwed.' Or you're not going to think, 'The umpire's going to give him calls because he's just told him he's an idiot or the pits of the world.' -John McEnroe

People either think I'm this totally savage, idiot-savant genius guy who's lucked out or they think I'm a super-manipulative crafty businessman, this kind of MBA guy who's spotted a gap in the market and knows how to create a product for it. It's flattering, but I've not got that much of a gameplan. -Irvine Welsh

When one woman found out I had multiple sclerosis, she said to me, 'My heart bleeds for you.' I said to her, 'Well, my heart bleeds for you, because you're an idiot.' -Teri Garr

I'm an idiot who won the Literature Nobel Prize. -Dario Fo

I consider myself a fearless idiot. -Nia Vardalos

I've heard players, and I'm talking about some of the best players in the league, question whether I've taken steroids or not. Some of the things I hear are pretty funny, and some people are idiots, frankly. -Jake Arrieta

When you have Candidate A saying the sky is blue, and Candidate B saying it's a cloudy day, I look outside and I see, well, it's a cloudy day. I should be able to tell my viewers, 'Candidate A is wrong, Candidate B is right,' and not have to say, 'Well, you decide.' Then it would be like I'm an idiot. -Campbell Brown

Kissing scenes are never romantic or sexy. They're actually super technical, like, 'Move your head; you're blocking her light,' or, 'Stop looking like an idiot when you kiss her.' -Will Poulter

Most journalists are idiots. -Milo Yiannopoulos

Boxing's a sport that gives you licence to act like an idiot, I think. -Anthony Joshua

I used to read reviews – I read a lot of the reviews when I did 'Borgen,' but the thing is, people were so harsh that I talked to my wife about it, and I said this is too tough – the people are too personal and too idiotic to understand it, in my mind. -Pilou Asbaek

Secularist justices de-Christianized our country. They invented new rights for vicious criminals as though criminal justice were a game. They tore our country apart with idiotic busing orders to achieve racial balance in public schools. -Pat Buchanan

I think, initially, working on your own is really great because it allows you to just be really free and not worry about how things are perceived or if people are going to think you're an idiot. And once that becomes ingrained, at least for me, I think I'll feel really comfortable to work with other people and still feel that same freedom. -K. Flay

I'm not a dumb idiot just because of what I wear. -Charli XCX

A hat has to be shaped to a person's face so it fights just right. It has to be done right. If you put my hat on, with my shape, you'd look like an idiot. If the bill is too high or too saggy, you look like a European tourist going to their first country concert. -Brad Paisley

I had a Taco Bell audition where I had to wear a huge sombrero and walk around like an idiot. I got call-backs for the movie 'Twister,' did small independent stuff that I won't name. But it led to all my breakthrough moments on 'Entourage.' -Mark Cuban

I think that a lot of people in all walks of life have the impression, of course, that, 'I specialize in something. I can't – I don't have the time to read other things. I'll just go to pure entertainment when I'm relaxing, and then I'll come back to my pure specialty.' That produces – that attitude produces idiot savants, unfortunately. -Robert J. Shiller

The first time I performed at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles, I was in the back of the room doing vocal exercises. 'Me-me-me, my-my-my, mo-mo-mo.'

Deflategate. I mean it's kind of idiotic in one way. On the other hand, look how totally obsessed we are with the fact that the New England Patriots may have taken, I don't know, a half-pound or a pound square inch of air pressure out of the footballs. We love it. -Stephen J. Dubner

That is the core of Trump. He is undoubtedly an idiot, but do not underestimate how good he is at that. -Naomi Klein

Comedy is hard. Any idiot can have an opinion. -Ann Coulter

If I'm screaming at someone, it's because I think they're an idiot. -Billy Eichner

I'm extraordinarily lucky to have so many friends across such a diverse group of people. One day I'll be at Oxford, the next at some complete idiot's lunch. -David Tang

Whenever I wake up, I'm up. I don't lie there like an idiot. I get up, run up a hill, get some exercise, and have some time with my thoughts. -Jason Momoa

The fact that I have to set things to record seems idiotic. And channel guides – I get home, and I want to watch a Duke basketball game; why do I have to go hunting to find out what channel it's on? Why can't I just say, 'I want to watch Duke basketball.' Or, even better, why doesn't the system know that? -Eddy Cue

I always tell aspiring documentary filmmakers, 'You have to go into it because you love it; if you go into it for the money, you're an idiot.' The number one prerequisite is you have to be intensely curious. If you love learning and trying to make people figure out what makes people tick, it's the best job in the world. -Morgan Neville

Skinny jeans and an extra big t-shirt. Ugh, I cannot stand that. It looks like an idiot: it's just proportionately wrong. And the super, super, super, super, super, super, super skinny jeans. I don't think you can get anything done when you're wearing clothes that tight. -Boyd Holbrook

I don't mind being criticised, because I am not that easy to knock down, and no-one can destroy me. But I am bothered by the stupid people who call me dirty, brainless, and an idiot. You don't say words like these to someone who you know nothing about. -Granit Xhaka

If you write a country song, and it's the best song you've ever written but throw it out because you're a metal band, you'd be an idiot. -Synyster Gates

Donald Trump is not a 71-year-old white man. He is an Indian uncle. He wears suits that don't fit; he can't speak English properly. He works with his idiotic sons; he hates women but loves his daughter. He makes up words when he gets angry. He is an Indian uncle. -Hasan Minhaj

Always from day one, we were the band on Warped Tour with a fog machine, and our backdrop had to be up – everyone thought we were the biggest idiots for that, total posers. But for us, we wanted to be over the top. -M. Shadows

Any idiot can throw together a program or report and shove it out, but to get the balance and to get the skill set, that is what they pay us for. They don't pay us to prattle on the television; anybody can do that. -Richard Quest

I thought, 'Nobody wants this book, and I'm an idiot for having worked on it so hard.' But to succeed in writing, you must be willing to look stupid for a long time. 'Pachinko' took so long because I got it wrong so many times. -Min Jin Lee

The 'Bolton News' is the best place for online comments. They say I'm an absolute idiot and a communist anarchist. I was never an anarchist; I was a communist! -Maxine Peake

Anybody who is racist, I just I think they are an idiot. -Charles Barkley

Nobody but an idiot would pretend that they had an error-proof way of choosing the 'best' out of hundreds of perfectly qualified applicants – not for university or for anything. -Mary Beard

You either have commercial pressure or ideological pressure. I prefer commercial pressure; otherwise, you can be at the mercy of one or two idiots. -Milos Forman

If you're the handsome white guy, you tend to get cast as guys who are meant to be convincing in their jobs. What I've been fortunate enough to do, whether it's playing a certified idiot on '30 Rock' or a weirdo in 'Bridesmaids,' is play against that in a lot of ways. -Jon Hamm

It's an old Elizabethan idea. The fool is the only one who is allowed to make fun of the king because he is a fool. I can say whatever I want about anybody else because I'm just an idiot talking – I'm not insisting that I'm any smarter than anyone else. It's satire. -Harry Anderson

If black people use their resources properly, they can become as competitive as any group in society – take control of our neighborhoods, our businesses, our schools, including our teachers. The only thing keeping black people from doing it is this idiotic idea about integration, about being racially balanced. -James Meredith

It's easy to make a cue last a lifetime. Don't boil it or freeze it in the trunk of a car. Don't lean it against a wall for years. If you lose a game to a complete idiot, hit the edge of the table in anger with something other than your cue. -Robert Byrne

There's no need to put a dumb picture of us on the album cover. We always look at ourselves and think, 'Wow, we look like idiots.' We'd rather have a piece of art on there. -Matthew Ramsey

A lot of people ask what it takes to move from being a creative to a leader: Take everyone's career personally. People will work hard for you if you work hard for them.

I just said, casually, 'You know, I passed up on auditioning for Einstein.' And my friend was like, 'You idiot, you have to do it!' She made me do it. I sent the tapes off assuming that somebody would say, 'Ha ha, very funny.' -Johnny Flynn

I really love when music artists like Lady Gaga or Michael Jackson wear outrageous things. Obviously, if I wore something like that I'd look like an idiot, but I really respect fashion. -Kevin McHale

I had big teeth, and I was goofy. I probably used to mess with people too much. People were always trying to be cool, and I was just being goofy and an idiot.

The time period I had in my life to look like an idiot and fail, and for no one to see that, came and went when I was 17. When you have early success, people are just lying in wait. -Josh Groban

I have a daughter. I have my imagination. I have friends. I, in no way, am going to louse that up with some idiot man, frankly. They drag you down – I'm talking about my generation of men. -Viv Albertine

If we didn't need eight hours of sleep and could survive on six, Mother Nature would have done away with 25 percent of our sleep time millions of years ago. Because when you think about it, sleep is an idiotic thing to do. -Matthew Walker

We notice in others only those things that relate to ourselves. For example, you could find someone hilarious and brilliant, and I could find the same person idiotic and annoying. It's the same person doing the same thing, but because we are viewing them from our own unique perspectives, they mirror back to us something different. -Jen Sincero

I had to decide that, you know what, I don't know who the hell I am or what I'm doing, but I do know that historically and scientifically and anecdotally, and anyone who is not an idiot knows, that waking up early and starting the day off with a nice, simple routine is a healthy and productive way to live one's life. -Mark Manson

I lived deep in the country in northern Wisconsin. I didn't have any neighbors or anything, so in the summers, I played guitar for hours and hours every day until I was about 18.

Even in the early stages, you can tell who thinks you're an idiot singing songs someone else has written for you. We never wanted to be two producers and a girl who wears some shoes. -Lauren Mayberry

I feel like such an idiot… you know, that our band didn't break up just so we can re-form and become more and more popular. -Rick Nielsen

Let's face it. Nobody predicted Trump. He's a fairytale nightmare that none of us could possibly have imagined. Shame on those 63 million who – especially those Obama voters who crossed over and voted, shame on them for putting this idiot in the White House. -Ron Stallworth

I never thought America would be stupid enough to put this idiot in the White House. Up until a half hour before they declared Trump the winner, I still thought that it wouldn't happen. I never thought that we, as a nation, had fallen so much that we would be foolish enough to do that. -Ron Stallworth

Falling in love is terrible. It makes you act foolish, like an idiot. -Lemmy

I like being known for being good at maths and having a brain. If I've been asked to do something but it's not relevant to me, I don't do it. I'd feel a bit of an idiot just turning up in a dress. -Rachel Riley

Eric Bischoff is a total, complete idiot, maybe the single stupidest idiot that ever got into wrestling. -Bret Hart

When we went to America, Robin Williams came to the gig, and Mike Myers had lunch with us and wanted to write a film for us. We're idiots – we turned it down.

I cannot pull off a mustache. It's like threading a needle, because most of the time, I'll look like a complete idiot. -Will Forte

In school, I wasn't like the cool guy who had all the new clothes and had all the girls. I felt like the world saw me as an idiot. -Skepta

SpongeBob is a complete innocent – not an idiot. SpongeBob never fully realizes how stupid Patrick is. They're whipping themselves up into situations – that's always where the humor comes from. -Stephen Hillenburg

As a young ma,n I was an absolute idiot. I think my exes would say I was a likeable baby. I had a teenager's bedroom when I was 32. -Greg Davies

I don't know how many times I literally hear this. It's the worst pun in the world from some idiotic frat guy. It's like, 'You must be 'Jealous' of Nick!' Constantly! It's like, why? He's doing his thing. I'm doing mine! He's happy. I'm happy. -Kevin Jonas

Any opportunity I get, I want to make the most of it, and I'm not afraid to look like an idiot. -Carmella

I'm not a complete idiot that just accuses people of something without having my reasons to believe what it is I'm saying. -Paulie Malignaggi

'Mindy' was fun. Other than 'Superstore,' it was the other time I played an elitist, obnoxious idiot. -Ben Feldman

I was very shy and had low self-esteem; the only way to stop yourself getting beaten up was to turn your hand to being an idiot. At the beginning, it was survival, and after that, it became second nature. -David Jason

In this business, you have to have what they call an idiotic determination to succeed. -David Jason

It's always baffled me why BET looks the way it does. This is Black Entertainment Television. Why are we up there, then, looking like idiots? It's because black people are marketing black people like that. -KRS-One

One of the things I endeavor to remind people of consistently when I am asked to speak to groups around the country is to consider the possibility that we are led by a pack of idiots. This is not out of any animus toward our leadership class, but borne out of experience. -Ben Domenech

A 'nidiot' is something different from an idiot. An idiot is someone whose problems are caused by not concentrating enough. A 'nidiot' is someone who makes his life more complicated by thinking too much rather than not enough. I'm not an idiot, but I'm definitely a 'nidiot'! -Jon Richardson

I got caught up in 35 years of Saturday nights. Every night was like party night to me. As a young man, you can do that; it's OK to be an idiot. But I woke up one day, and I realized that 35 years had gone by. -Steve Lukather

I'm not an idiot. Everything is calculated that I do. -Guy Martin

I think I got stopped on the train once by a kid, and that was the first time I realised I had fans. He was shaking. I just reassured him that I'm an idiot and nothing special, so he didn't have to be nervous. It was very sweet. -Sam Fender
