10 QUOTES WITH «PSYCHO»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word psycho.
1
Katy B
The nice way to meet a guy is through getting to know them first. Then you can really judge their personality. What I can't take is meeting someone, going on a date, getting to know them, then finding out they're a complete psycho - 'Great, I've just wasted all this time on you!'
2
Valorie Curry
I love the horror genre and the thriller genre, so I've got no problem with playing a psycho.
3
Zac Efron
A lot of people ask: 'Will you play a psycho to really change your image and prove you can act?' But that's not what I'm about.
4
John Hawkes
I do all kinds of roles - nerd, psycho, nerd, psycho, nerd, psycho - and occasionally someone kind of normal. It's weird, when I lived in Austin I was always cast as pretty normal people. But when I moved to Los Angeles I was immediately branded a psycho.
5
Josh Holloway
I get to actually experience what it would be like to be a psycho, which is not a fun one, or to be a cowboy, or to be a weird character of some sort. For me, it suits me. It suits my personality. I'm an emotional kind of person anyway.
6
Boman Irani
I'm an actor, and I don't look at myself as providing comic relief. I have done diverse and dark roles such as a psycho, murderer, and others in films such as 'Don', 'Eklavya' and '3 Idiots.'
7
Daren Kagasoff
When I meet a girl I like, I call her the next day. I don't play that three-day rule. Maybe that's psycho.
8
Stephanie Klein

9
Sarah Jessica Parker
When men attempt bold gestures, generally it's considered romantic. When women do it, it's often considered desperate or psycho.
10
Christina Ricci
My dream role would probably be a psycho killer, because the whole thing I love about movies is that you get to do things you could never do in real life, and that would be my way of vicariously experiencing being a psycho killer. Also, it's incredibly romantic.
