Famous quotes by Famke Janssen
Everybody gets typecast in movies, but you have to make wise choices. I'd say around 90 percent of movie casting is about the way you look, so you have to fight that. If producers had their way, I'd only be in action films, but I'm interested in a more varied career than that.Famke Janssen
I like to go from mainstream movies to more artsy films. I don't sign on for the money. Maybe I should, but I don't. There's always a good reason for doing something.Famke Janssen
I love scary movies. The Shining and Don't Look Now are two of the best.Famke Janssen
I love the first two X-Men movies because I thought that Bryan Singer did such a great job. He elevated that whole genre. He's a very talented director.Famke Janssen
I want to work with great directors. I want to work on good material with good actors. I've probably done 20 movies at this point and a lot of independents. It's been an incredible ride and I love it and I'm just going to keep going and doing what I'm doing.Famke Janssen
Robert De Niro... It seemed like a pretty cool thing to do to put his name on my resume next.Famke Janssen
