A. J. Cook Quotes

Not a penny off the pay, not a second on the day.

A J Cook

I am just your everyday, average girl. I live by the beach. I wear flip flops. I don’t wear make-up. I go to the gym. My husband and I are just really laid back people.

I never liked to be pigeon-holed and I never liked people to think that they know who I am. I like to keep people guessing.

I personally am not a huge fan of really gory, scary movies because I’m a wimp. I really like a suspenseful movies and movies that make you think.

I have some amazing fans! They’re just so dedicated and so nice and so sweet. I’m like NO ONE and I’m just starting out and these people appreciate your work and it’s nice to hear that.

I’m character-driven. If it’s a great character and something different; because I find that a lot of the times you do get pigeon-holed, you do get the same characters over and over again because that’s what producers are comfortable with. They’ve seen you do it, they know you can do it. I’m kind of getting a little stir crazy.

You’ve got to do the big studio movies to get your name, but as an actor and for your own well-being you kind of need to step back from that occasionally and do the smaller films. In the end, that’s what helps you learn and makes you a better actor.

I am trying my hardest to stay away from the horror movies just because I feel like people are thinking that’s what I do, that I’m a scream queen. I’d like to stay away from that.

I like TV in the way that it moves quickly, I like the pace of TV because I’m that type of actor. I like to go-go-go. I don’t have to do 50 million takes of something. I guess I’m not that patient. I really like the pace of it.
