Zoe Kazan Quotes
- [why shes reluctant to act] Its just that actors are all lumped together as this vague mass of fame-hungry, swag-wearing, drug-using, eating-disordered people, and I sometimes get sick of being lumped with that group.
- [on playwriting] I think action should be revealed through character, so if you have a plot problem, its probably a character problem. Its fun and easy to write language, but there were things I loved that I had to get rid of because they are no longer carrying their weight.
- Broadway is different now than in our parents generation. The number of straight plays opening there now is so small compared to the 1950s, 60s and 70s. I see many more plays Off Broadway by dint of ticket price and whats being produced. If it costs more, it has to reach a larger audience. Thats why there arent more risky plays on Broadway.
- I always wrote. My parents are writers. It just seemed like something people did. I took a writing class in college, liked it, and my first year out of school I couldnt get a job, so I wrote a play. I never wanted to be a playwright. I just didnt say no to any of my interests. I dont have any hobbies.
- [on taking up screen-writing] We are in the most insane waiting game of a business, and the only way I have stayed sane is by giving myself another creative outlet.
