Quotes, By and About Skeet

Skeet Ulrich Quotes

"I think I'm extremely vulnerable and that in some ways I seek out rejection. Never feeling like you're getting that pat on the back from dad is probably at the heart of that. I'm working through it, which is good. As an actor, I think that you want to keep your demons to some extent, but you also have to exorcise them so you can use them instead of them using you."

"The more you understand me, the less characters I can play."

"My problem with interviews, one day I'll think one thing, and the next day I'll think the exact opposite."



"I feel like I want to crawl out of my skin, especially when people start questioning me."

"I'm not the most talkative guy in the world."

"Our first kissing scene (with Jewel Kilcher), I was eating onions in front of her right before. Just to let her know it's all play."

"I didn't even go to my prom... I didn't have one date in high school."

"As a kid I used to pretend I was like John Denver, of all people, and play the guitar and sing, 'Take Me Home, Country Roads.'"

"Any time I got in emotional turmoil, I felt sick all the time, like at any minute I would die."

"I remember doing Ang Lee's movie ("Ride with the Devil") and people would come to the set and do interviews. And I told people I would do six more movies, and that would be it. I thought that might be the case. I had a leaning toward doing that and building furniture. And I bought a farm in Virginia and was living on it at that time." "Then I took almost two years off when the kids were born. And I missed it so bad. I had no idea I would. There was just a void. I was getting so bottled up. I didn't have that form of expression that eased it a little bit for me..."

I was away from the business for close to two years, and I sort of felt it all again. You know, why I originally got interested in it -- basically I am not a great communicator in life in terms of what's going on in my head and how I feel about things. So it's kind of a way, through metaphor, to say those things. It's what drew me to it -- other people's voices saying what I wish I could say."

"I watch very little TV - Spongebob Squarepants, mostly!"

On 'Miracles': "All you have to do is step outside and it's hard to deny that there's a God. So it hasn't really changed any of my views on religion."

On 'Jericho': "I really loved the premise."Who do we become when someone takes everything away? Who decides what is law and order in a new world?"

"They grow up so fast, you just want to eat up every moment with them."

"I think people could justify labeling me if they saw a pattern in what I do, but right now that's impossible."

"I've always been a wanderlust, but now I love being at home."

Acting is a perfect job for me - fun challenging and paid well with lots of time off in between. I just love it."

"There's a lot of reasons you can think of to say why you act, but I can only say that it just felt good. At the same time, it felt really painful. It's still troubling and stressful to me."

"Whatever labels are being pinned on me have nothing to do with me."

"In this business, you're either Brad Pitt right away, or you're already going down the ladder."

"I was nicknamed Skeeter in Little League because I was small and fast, like a mosquito flying across the outfield."

"I think when someone becomes an actor, people say, 'Aw, you could see it in him when he was little.' But I think you can see that quality in every little kid."

Quotes by people who have worked with Skeet:

He is always happy. He is so awesome. He is so mellow. He's great. He loves what he does. He respects everyone and their job. He's the right guy to lead a show with this big of a cast and this many people working on it. He is a real leader. On television shows, especially ensembles, there is usually a leader and the best compliment I can give someone is that it is like leading an ensemble theatre company. That's what Skeet's like. He's like a captain of our team. Sprague Grayden

He is always willing to give the other person their moment to shine. Brad Beyer

He is a phenomenal presence, he is a kind gentleman, he is not bad to look at. Alicia Coppola

Skeet is a diva, he is throwing fits all the time, I am sure you could tell when you interviewed him... Pamela Reed, joking. :)


Besides the fact that I think Skeet is one of the best actors I have ever worked with, he's just a great, great guy and he is really good to work with.... because he is right over there (laughing)...is that good... oh he is very handsome and tall. Michael Gaston

Skeet's amazing with his kids. He's got twins, a boy and a girl, and he's the best father figure I've seen in action. He's incredibly sensitive and in control. To me, that's really sexy. Ashley Scott

I think it's because I'm not good-looking enough to be the guy who gets all the girls. Instead, I'm the guy who gets to kill them. I'm not crying, like "Hey, look, I'm the ugly guy." I really hate it when actors do that. But l ain't no Skeet Ulrich. Matthew Lillard


"Who knows what the future holds..." Skeet Ulrich
