Aaron Paul 2

My family never owned a home. We leased.
Aaron Paul

My first gig was a Corn Pops commercial. I did the first Vanilla Coke campaign. A Juicy Fruit commercial paid my bills for years.
Aaron Paul

I gravitate toward edgy, intense, dark films that just grab you by the throat.
Aaron Paul

I get random meetings, like, ‘Ron Howard would like to sit down with you.’ ‘Really?’ If ‘Breaking Bad’ hadn’t happened, Ron Howard probably wouldn’t want to sit down with me. Because he would have no idea who I was.
Aaron Paul

‘Breaking Bad’ has definitely opened many, many doors for me.
Aaron Paul

I consider myself absolutely a character actor, and that’s what I want as a career. I don’t need to be the lead star or any of that, as long as I’m doing stuff that I’m proud of, really.
Aaron Paul

It’s so hard for me to kind of fall in love with comedy, but if something comes my way… I mean, I loved ‘Weird,’ I thought that was a really fun character.
Aaron Paul

I moved back to Idaho when I was 6 or 7 and then lived in a little town called Twin Falls and then moved to Boise. So quite different from L.A. I’d been to Disneyland a couple of times, and that was the closest I’d been to L.A.
Aaron Paul

There’s three networks you want to be on: It’s either AMC, HBO, or Showtime.
Aaron Paul

The first album I ever bought with my own money was ‘Ten.’ Every single song reminds me of my childhood.
Aaron Paul

I don’t even draw on my life experiences when I’m acting. I just try and make it feel like I’m living through that person’s skin.
Aaron Paul

I took a whole stunt course and pretty much got certified as a stunt driver. It’s ridiculous how easy it is once you understand the car and know how to do it.
Aaron Paul

It’s all about trying to be very careful about what your next role or what your next move is gonna be. It’s all about trying to have longevity in this business and make smart choices.
Aaron Paul

I never really thought of myself as being an action hero or a leading man or any of that. I’m a character actor.
Aaron Paul

I was on the snowboard team at my school, but that was the only sports team I was on. I played soccer growing up in elementary school.
Aaron Paul

From the very beginning, I’ve always just wanted to do something I’ve never done before. I’m still just trying to be on that path. It’s all about working with filmmakers that you believe in.
Aaron Paul

You can tell if you’re going to be into a script within the first five or ten pages – if I’m not completely engaged by page 20, I just have to give up on it.
Aaron Paul

I’ve been a fan of Burberry for a very long time and they’ve been so supportive of me for many years.
Aaron Paul

I moved out to Los Angeles a fan of many people, and meeting people I put on a pedestal that just disappointed me. Without fans, this business would not exist, so I try and say that we’re all on the same level.
Aaron Paul

I knew that I tend to always gravitate to the indie side of things.
Aaron Paul

A lot of people get emotional in movies that are cartoons, but not in TV shows.
Aaron Paul

My father’s a Southern Baptist minister. I wasn’t lighting cars on fire; I just wasn’t.
