Timothy Hutton's Quotes

  • [9/1/98, in interview in "Daily News", about following his own gut in career choices] I was 18, did a couple of things on TV, then I did Ordinary People (1980) and when you are fortunate enough to be in a movie like that, working with Robert Redford as the director and the movie is as well received as it was, it would be ludicrous to have a master plan for a career. So next, I was in Wayne, PA, doing Taps (1981) and then I was back in New York working with Sidney Lumet doing an ensemble movie called Daniel (1983). And I turned down a starring role in Risky Business (1983), even though all my agents and manager said I was crazy. But I looked at it and asked myself, "What was the experience going to be like? What will I learn?" And looking back at myself at 23, being able to work with Sidney Lumet and E.L. Doctorow, I have absolutely no regrets. I learned stuff that will stay with me forever.
  • [Upon receiving his Academy Award for Ordinary People (1980)] This is for my dad. I wish he were here to see it.
  • [on George C. Scott] It was amazing just to stand by him and see him at work on Taps (1981)--a real experience to see such discipline and concentration.

Timothy Hutton: A look at the Early Life and Career of an Iconic Actor and Director

Timothy Hutton is a well-known American actor and director, born on August 16, 196, in Malibu, California. With a net worth of $12 million, he has earned significant attention in the entertainment industry over the years. Today, we will take a closer look at his early life, career, and financial details.

Early Life and Education

Hutton’s parents were Maryline and Jim. Unfortunately, they got divorced when he was just three years old, and he went to live with his mother and older sister Heidi in Boston. The family moved to Harwinton, Connecticut before returning to California in the early 70s. Hutton had a rocky start to life but his interest in the acting career began to take shape in Fairfax High School, Los Angeles. It so happened that during a school production of “Guys and Dolls,” Hutton realized that he wanted to pursue a career as an actor.


Hutton made his debut on television in the late 197s, performing in a number of television films such as Zuma Beach, Friendly Fire, Young Love, First Love, And Baby Makes Six, and The Best Place to Be. His acting skills were well established by the time he landed the role of Conrad Jarrett in Robert Redford’s 198 film ‘Ordinary People’. The success of the film launched his acting career to great heights he seemingly could only dream of, as he would later win an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor at the mere age of 20.

Beginnings on Television

After ‘Ordinary People,’ Hutton was seen in Sidely Lumet’s ‘Daniel’ and Fred Schepisi’s ‘Iceman.’ He then starred in the action film ‘Turk 182,’ and had a popular success with John Schlesinger’s spy drama ‘The Falcon and the Snowman,’ in which he starred opposite Sean Penn. Afterward, Hutton starred in ‘Made in Heaven,’ ‘A Time of Destiny,’ and ‘Torrents of Spring.’ Throughout the 199s, Hutton appeared in a variety of films such as ‘Q&A,’ ‘The Temp,’ and George A. Romero’s ‘The Dark Half.’ His array of talents also made him successful on television, particularly in his long stint on A Nero Wolfe Mystery as Archie Goodwin.

Acting Breakthrough with ‘Ordinary People’

In Robert Redford’s film ‘Ordinary People’, Hutton played Conrad Jarrett, a young man struggling with posttraumatic stress disorder and survivor’s guilt following the accidental death of his older brother. Also, the film chronicles the life of Conrad, adjusting to his new post-family life as he deals with living in an upper-middle-class suburban family. Mary Tyler Moore notably played his conflicted mother full of regrets, while Donald Sutherland takes the role of the dispassionate father trying to hold the family together for Conrad’s sake. With Judd Hirsch portraying his psychiatrist, the cast captured the emotional distress that comes with losing someone close, and the film took home accolades for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay at the academy awards- with Hutton netting his first award for Best Supporting Actor- being the youngest ever to receive that award at only 20 years old.

Television Career
