Chadwick Boseman's Quotes
- [on his lead role as Jackie Robinson in the biopic 42 (2013) ] The story is relevant because we still stand on his shoulders. He started something - I would even say maybe he didn't even start it, it started before him. But he carried the torch. And he carried it alone for a period of time before other people could help him.
- [on making 42 (2013)] What I loved about being on the field is that there's this sort of meditative aspect to it. You have to be calm, and you can't be inside your head. That's the beauty of what Jackie Robinson did - you take a sport where, if you're in your head, you make mistake after mistake, and failing is what you do most of the time. Then you add all the other stuff going on around you, and you still manage to succeed? That's really what was amazing about it, and I didn't understand that until I was practicing it every day.
- [on meeting Hank Aaron] When he came to the set, it was like having Jackie Robinson there. I think he looked up to Jackie, and he experienced some similar conflicts. He was able to give me insights into how he approached the home run record, and it was a difficult time for him as well. He's like a grandfather, such a gentle spirit. Every time I got to meet him, it just put me in a good place.
- Guys are natural problem solvers - they like to have strategies.
- You have to cherish things in a different way when you know the clock is ticking, you are under pressure.
