10 QUOTES WITH «ROY»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word Roy.
1
Richard Ayoade
I like Roy Orbison's video for 'I Drove All Night' because it's so literal. It is just a man driving throughout the night. I like that silliness. To be in a video is a ridiculous thing. It's almost impossible to do it without any humour.
2
Jonathan Brandis
Roy Schneider was cool. I learned quite a bit from him.
3
Solomon Burke
We were grooving, at that point, in the same direction, but remember, Roy Hamilton and myself were going into a path and a direction that had no programming.
4
Bert Campaneris
In 83 I thought we were going to go all the way. We had Roy Smalley, and Steve King, and good players.
5
Lois Chiles
I grew up in Alice, Texas, a small oil town with one theater that only showed Roy Rogers movies. So when I got the role, I had never even seen a Bond film and had only had a vague notion about the idea of a Bond girl.
6
Brian Cox
There are characters that have made me uncomfortable. I did a film called 'Rob Roy,' and I played Killearn, who was this sort of greasy fallen-angel character who was voyeuristic and sleazy and really unpleasant. It was a great role, but I didn't especially enjoy living with this awful man for the length of time it took to make the movie.
7
Daniel A. D'Aniello
The first concert I ever saw was Roy Orbison.
8
Eric Dickerson
I love golf. But do you know how I got good at golf? Because of Charles Barkley. I was playing with Charles, Michael Jordan and Roy Green, and Charles was talking so much trash. On every shot, he was talking trash. So I left the tournament, and I went and practiced for a year and half.
9
Walt Disney
Mickey Mouse popped out of my mind onto a drawing pad 20 years ago on a train ride from Manhattan to Hollywood at a time when business fortunes of my brother Roy and myself were at lowest ebb and disaster seemed right around the corner.
10
Nonito Donaire
I liked Roy Jones, Sugar Ray Leonard, Ali... those were the guys I was looking at growing up.
