This short and concise Randy Quaid Quote is also full of trouble. In 2005, the American actor got a minor role of the ranch owner in the Oscar-winning film, Brokeback Mountain.

This Randy Quaid Quote is an outright lie. The production of the Broadway-bound musical Lone Star Love was generous enough to cast Randy Quaid despite all the red signs. But Randy Quaid called in sick when it was time to practice and never showed up again for the practice. And the production trusted him to remember his dialogues thinking he was a good actor after all. But when he finally appeared, he had changed all his dialogues and re-written the whole story to kill off several characters. In consequence, he was fired. And when Vanity Fair asked about what happened, he denied with the above quote.

This Randy Quaid Quote from his interview about his childhood shows that Randy was always a little weird in some way.

And maybe that explains Randy Quaid’s behavior. In a pathological sense, Randy Quaid wanted could just quite everything and adopt a nomadic lifestyle. So he needed some force that would push him to keep moving from town to town. So he subconsciously invented the Hollywood Star Whackers and believes that it’s real. But how he got Evi on board is still not explained.
“What I wish more than anything is that I could start getting press about my work as an actor. That is what I do. I’m not a criminal.”
Randy Quaid Quote about wishing to be recognized as an actor instead of criminal in the media, is a paradox. Randy Quaid has done some really good acting in the past, yes. But when it comes to media, the only concern is “what’s happening now?” And what’s happening now is that Randy Quaid is breaking a bunch of laws and violating several public policies with his partner in crime, his wife Evi. This is all that matters for now. If Randy Quaid has got any problem with that, perhaps he should quit whining and do some acting.

The troubled actor Randy Quaid has been interviewed a number of times by a number of media outlets since the beginning of his whacky activities. And he has always repeated the same old verses that he was framed and his wife and he, are running for their lives from a murderous cult of Hollywood.

So this Randy Quaid Quote shows that Randy Quaid is never gonna let his whacky conspiracies go as all that matters is that he thinks it’s real. It doesn’t matter if no one else believes him. It is a clear indication that no amount of rational arguments can bring the old Quaid back.
“Acting’s more of a business for me now.”
Quaid was cast in a Broadway Bound Musical called the Lone Star Love and he was fired for various reasons. Randy and his wife warned the cast members to get them fired. Randy changed his dialogues and made inappropriate sexual references about a female colleague. Evi Quaid sent her naked photos lying on the bed with a pistol in her hand to the producers of Lone Star Love. Randy and his wife re-wrote the whole story to kill off the characters played by cast members they didn’t like. And lastly, Randy Quaid kept hitting a cast member in the back of his head threatening him of getting him fired. None of that looks professional at all. Randy Quaid has no idea what it’s like to be a businessman.
“I am being embezzled from by this monstrous ring of accountants and estate planners and lawyers, who are mercilessly slandering me and trying to kill my career and, I believe, murder me in order to gain control of my royalties.”
One thing that is very clear about Randy Quaid is that he is full of rhetoric. He would use the most sophisticated words to justify his absurd logic in his deluded beliefs. He thinks that everyone is out for his money, which he doesn’t have much of since he’s not a working actor for years. Thinks that the aforementioned murderous cult in Hollywood is just out there to murder him for his royalties.
“I just always wanted to be left alone to go into a creative space.”
During his Vanity Fair interview, Randy Quaid revealed that he frequently sat alone in his trailer between the shots to practice his role. As he claims that his main concern was always to put up a good show. And according to Randy Quaid, instead of thinking about how he can perform best while sitting alone in his trailer, he was forced to check his bank statements. And he could never get ahead of them. His accountant wrote him a letter claiming that his wife Evi was spending too much money and she would leave him broke. Unfortunately, Randy refused to admit that and accused his accountant to be one of the Star Whackers who was trying to separate Randy and Evi. So yeah, that’s the reason why Randy never became a good actor.
“I love playing characters that are bigger than life and maybe have a darker side that they present to the world. Those are good characters.”
Now, this would be the only quote that we kind of agree with. There are many people out there living there lives full of struggle, hardship, and disappointments and still loving it. Life is real and it gets really hard. Anyone who has ever lived is bound to have a dark side full of resentment due to poor decisions and bad luck. There is some sort of truth to that what Quaid has said here take the Cousin Eddie from the National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation for example.
“I’m not crazy. I play a lot of crazy characters, but I’m an actor.”
Without a doubt, Randy Quaid has played some of the weirdest and whacky characters in his long career. He has played several roles that no one else would be willing to play. And we have seen many actors who get to play weird characters on screen and end up believing what their characters believe in their own lives.

“I went through this delayed-adolescence thing. I didn’t want to be tied down to a family.”
In 1989, in an interview with People magazine. Randy Quaid opened up about his failed marriage with his first wife Ella Jolly. And he spilled the details about his new marriage and by then, two months old wife Evi. The reason why Quaid struggled with his first marriage is that he struggled with the concept of settling down. As many film stars tend to get married very late and enjoy their days of freedom. To date anyone they want. Quaid wanted to enjoy the same and his career was also going very well. But when he met Evi on the set of Bloodhounds of Broadway. He fell in love with her and they immediately got married.

“If you don’t stick up for what’s yours, and defend what’s yours… what are you?”
If these words are taken in a general sense, they are the most empowering words in the world. Who doesn’t wanna what’s rightfully yours? Wait, Rightfully? So,… that’s what Randy Quaid is missing. He doesn’t stop to think for a moment what he’s asking for is something he RIGHTFULLY deserves or not. He just demands it and fights for it, if he thinks something is his right.
