Quotes

List of Jack Black quotes.

(on co- starring with Gwyneth Paltrow for the first time in Shallow Hal (2001)) You know, I WAS a little afraid that she would fall head-over-heels in love with me, like she did (when co-starring) with Brad Pitt in Se7en (1995).


(about Shallow Hal (2001)) I wasn't proud of it, and I got paid a lot of money, so in retrospect it feels like a sell-out.


(on his part and his tights in Nacho Libre (2006)) At first I would have rather been naked to tell you the truth, because I just look so goddang ridiculous. But then I thought, "Wait, that's my job. The stretchy pants are my friends. I love the stretchy pants!" It just took a little mental adjustment, because I know that when I'm embarrassed and scared about acting, that means I'm going to get some good life-nugget knowledge out of it. And I love the knowledge nuggets."
