Cary Grant

Data di nascita: 18. Gennaio 1904
Data di morte: 29. Novembre 1986

Cary Grant, nome d'arte di Archibald Alexander Leach , è stato un attore britannico naturalizzato statunitense.

Inglese di nascita, ma trasferitosi negli Stati Uniti all'inizio degli anni venti, fu uno degli attori più brillanti e affascinanti di Hollywood, dotato di una naturale e raffinata eleganza, di una notevole prestanza fisica e di un sottile senso dell'ironia. Ha recitato in un centinaio di film, in prevalenza commedie brillanti, non disdegnando però ruoli in pellicole sentimentali, drammatiche e in alcuni celebri thriller di Alfred Hitchcock, il quale ebbe a dichiarare che Cary Grant fu l'unico attore nella sua carriera che avesse veramente amato. Ian Fleming disse invece di essersi almeno in parte ispirato a Grant nel delineare il personaggio dell'agente segreto James Bond.L'American Film Institute lo ha inserito al secondo posto tra le più grandi star della storia del cinema.

„Divenni attore per il solito motivo: un gran bisogno di piacere e di essere ammirato.“

—  Cary Grant

Origine: Citato in Geoffrey Wansell, Cary Grant. Tra fascino e ironia la carriera e i film di un perfetto gentiluomo, Gremese, 1996.

„Now I know how it can change, just like that. They can be applauding you one moment, and booing you the next. The thing to know is that you have done a good job, then it doesn’t hurt to be criticized.“

—  Cary Grant

Love – That’s All Cary Grant Ever Thinks About (1964)
Contesto: I used to hide behind the façade that was Cary Grant … I didn’t know if I were Archie Leach, or Cary Grant, and I wasn’t taking any chances. … Another thing I had to cure myself of was the desire for adulation, and the approbation of my fellow man. It started when I was a small boy and played football at school. If I did well they cheered me. If I fumbled I was booed. It became very important to me to be liked. It’s the same in the theater, the applause and the laughter give you courage and the excitement to go on. I thought it was absolutely necessary in order to be happy. Now I know how it can change, just like that. They can be applauding you one moment, and booing you the next. The thing to know is that you have done a good job, then it doesn’t hurt to be criticized. My press agent was very indignant over something written about me not too long ago. “Look,” I told him. “I’ve known this character for many years, and the faults he sees in me are really the faults in himself that he hates.”

„Do not blame others for your own mistakes. … YOU are Mother Nature.“

—  Cary Grant

Love – That’s All Cary Grant Ever Thinks About (1964)
Contesto: Do not blame others for your own mistakes. … YOU are Mother Nature. You have the power within you to be thin or fat, as you desire. … God is within you, and you can do and have anything you want. You must love yourself more. … and then … you can love your fellow man.

„Don’t go to extremes. Don’t hate too much and don’t love too much. Try to live somewhere in the middle.“

—  Cary Grant

Love – That’s All Cary Grant Ever Thinks About (1964)
Contesto: Don’t go to extremes. Don’t hate too much and don’t love too much. Try to live somewhere in the middle. Hate destroys the hater. And if you love too much you get too involved and you cannot see too clearly. Love and hate are like night and day. They do exist together and you must accept them both, but you must also understand them and be in control of both emotions. It is peaceful in the middle. You won’t be hurt in the middle.

„Also, people seek targets for whatever hurts them, especially their own lack of success. Personally, I regard every knock as a boost.“

—  Cary Grant

Love – That’s All Cary Grant Ever Thinks About (1964)
Contesto: It always amazes me that those who fight for the luxuries of life, are the first to resent those who have them. Also, people seek targets for whatever hurts them, especially their own lack of success. Personally, I regard every knock as a boost.

„God is within you, and you can do and have anything you want. You must love yourself more. … and then … you can love your fellow man.“

„I never dwell on past mistakes… There is too much to plan for the future to waste time complaining.“

—  Cary Grant

Love – That’s All Cary Grant Ever Thinks About (1964)
Contesto: I never dwell on past mistakes… There is too much to plan for the future to waste time complaining.  Elsie Mendl was a great friend of mine for many, many years. And I remember the creed by which she lived: Never complain, never explain. Just think of the people you know who are always explaining their mistakes. It merely rubs the whole thing in. You’re reminded again of the mistake. And no one believes the explanation anyway.
