Leading Men: A Handful of Humorous Quotes by Actors

We've watched them on our television screens and seen them in films. They generally have to recite lines that other people have told them to say, but once you strip away the scripts and ask celebrity men a few questions, chances are they're going to come out with a few humor quotes that will tickle your funny bone. Let's check out a few of the top quotes from some of the world's leading men.


"Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first." - Ronald Reagan

Before he got into the world of politics and rose to become President of the United States, Ronald Reagan was an actor. This put him in good stead for being put on the spot with questions. He always knew what to say, and here is one such instance of when it paid off.


"First the doctor told me the good news: I was going to have a disease named after me." - Steve Martin

He doesn't look like leading man material, but lifelong comic Steve Martin has starred in a number of leading man roles. He is best known for his roles in The Jerk, Planes Trains and Automobiles, Fatherhood and Father of the Bride. He also knows how to put an audience in stitches when he delivers little one-liners like this.


"People who read the tabloids deserve to be lied to." - Jerry Seinfeld

Comedian turned sitcom star Jerry Seinfeld is another leading man who doesn't look like a chiseled lothario, but he still managed to get his own TV show on the back of his stand up. While this quote isn't bursting with Seinfeld's usual razor sharp wit, he raises a good point about the state of the tabloid industry.


"My mother never saw the irony in calling me a son-of-a-bitch." - Jack Nicholson

You can almost see Jack Nicholson's devilish grin coming through as he delivers this quote—white teeth, deep smile lines and a little chuckle to finish. He must have made this face at his mother at least once, particularly for her to deliver a barb like "son of a bitch" to her own flesh and blood.


"Bisexuality immediately doubles your chances for a date on Saturday night." - Rodney Dangerfield

Rodney Dangerfield is yet another comedian who managed to become a leading man in his own television show because he was funny, and like other comedians, a little funny looking. The king of "I can't get no respect" seems to have the right idea about the dating scene here—if only he could tell that to the Ok Cupid generation!


"My children love my mother, and I tell my children - 'That is NOT the same woman I grew up with. That is an old woman trying to get into heaven now." - Bill Cosby

Bill Cosby (aka Bill Huxtable of The Cosby Show) is also the author of books on growing up and starting a family. He has a point about his mother—when mothers turn into grandmothers, they start to lay on the sweetness! Top actors and comedians are always good for a laugh, as this list shows. Imagine what these guys could do in a room together? If walls could talk, they'd laugh!
