I’m attracted to artists like Frida Kahlo, because her work was her life, her questions, her outrage, her suffering, her pain. Everything is in her work.
Everything I do in my life is very instinctual and in the moment. If I’m attracted to something, that’s it. If I have reservations, those don’t change till they’re resolved. My first impression is how I go.
The aggressiveness of it attracted me to hip-hop because I was angry inside. I was an angry kid because of the sickle cell. So I liked the anger in hip-hop. That’s what attracted me to it; that’s what made me want to do it. It helped me get my aggression out.
I became passionate about filmmaking. The thrill to make something out of nothing and to go out there to see whether it will work or not attracted me.
I’m attracted to how fraught the parent-child relationship is, swerving so easily between love and hostility, with almost no plausible way to end, unless someone dies.
You know what? I’m really attracted to British women, there’s something innately proper about them. However badly they behave their accent is so cute that it makes up for everything!

I would say that a lot of the characters I’ve been attracted to are very vulnerable and they expose themselves emotionally. Not so much in ‘The Fighter,’ not so much in ‘The Master’ – I think those are different.
I was attracted to the comics because of the characters and, particularly, Wolverine because he is so complex. He is so damaged and tragic in many ways – he doesn’t have his memory. His body was invaded. He has unrequited love for Jean Grey.
I’m attracted to subjects who overcome tremendous suffering and learn to cope emotionally with it.
I am attracted to people irrespective of their gender.

I’ve always been attracted to the gayish side of fashion. It’s just more interesting.
I’m definitely more attracted to chaos than to order. The point is, I find the female roles out there very cliche. If we are limited to being only lovers or mothers, we are limiting ourselves.
That, to me, is the core of fantasy – real people in a crazy environment, dealing with crazy problems. That’s what I think the books of ‘The Witcher’ did really well, and it’s what attracted me to them, in the first place.
The promos with all of the beautiful women probably attracted some men, but the mystery story line is pretty cool. It’s got that dark edge, and people will watch anything funny.
I was pretty much a hippie. I was a vegetarian, gypsy-like. I liked to meditate, and it’s curious because I was very much attracted to the possibility of change.
The quantum world is still very mysterious, still seemingly very powerful, and I’m definitely attracted to the mysterious and the unknown and just the vastness of what my imagination puts on it.

I’ve been attracted to imagery and occasionally I’ve drawn from it, but I never thought I’d be painting these paintings. I didn’t have any desire to. I didn’t think there was any reason to.
I’m very attracted to Indians.
I’m more attracted to the bad guys. Why? Because in real life, I don’t know any good guys. I know okay guys. I know polite guys. I know people who can control themselves.
I’ve never been in a relationship before. I’ve only been in unrequited relationships where people haven’t loved me back. I guess I’m a little bit attracted to that in a bad way.
I’ve always been attracted to independent, outspoken women.
I’ve always been a daydreamer. When the other kids were playing, I was listening to the roar at Yankee Stadium – I was always attracted to the roar of the crowd.

I love animals, and I was always attracted to the idea of being a zoo veterinarian or a veterinarian with the circus.
When I heard the news of Waldemar de Carvalho issuing a ruling to approve gay conversion therapy in Brazil, after it was banned for nearly 20 years, my heart broke. So many of my fans and supporters live in Brazil and it pains me to see them not feel legitimized for who they are and who they are attracted to.
I’m more attracted to a stronger man rather than a feminine man. Someone who would just throw me down and take control. I love feeling helpless. I definitely like a man who is aggressive and confident.
I’m attracted to funny people with nice hands who smell good and are kind to people.
Kevin, as the whole cast is, just wonderful people and great people, and people who are attracted to this kind of material and accepting the idea of going to Newfoundland and knowing the kind of lack of amenities.
I get in trouble when I say things like, ‘I’m attracted to violence.’ I was a pretty angry kid, and I got into military history largely as a way to vent my own anger. As I got older it narrowed down to a more specific focus on individual violence. I’m just trying to understand where it came from.
The No. 1 thing I am earnestly attracted to is intelligence.
I’ve always been attracted to multicultural music. It’s where the world is going.
I went to the studio of Fischli Weiss, and it was magical. I thought: ‘This is what I want to do with my life; I want to work with artists and be useful to them.’ I was magnetically attracted.
There was the time when I thought about joining a gang. When you’re young and the girls are attracted to the bad boys, the bad boys had all the money. I didn’t have much so I wanted to attract that.
I think being attracted to mistakes is one of the things that film can capture in a way that theater can’t. Film can capture a moment of spontaneous life that will never be captured again.

I’m destined to be attracted to those I cannot defeat.
I was never attracted to being a very proficient singer or player. I suppose I was interested in creating a vision; in the same way I was very drawn to tension within cinema.
I’m comfortable only when there’s a mutual attraction. That’s what anyone wants. If I find out she’s not attracted to me, it brings down my level of attraction to her. If I’m interested and find out she’s not, I tend to cool off.
I am increasingly attracted to restricting possibility in the poem by inflicting a form upon yourself. Once you impose some formal pattern on yourself, then the poem is pushing back. I think good poems are often the result of that kind of wrestling with the form.
I have always believed that the material world is governed by nonmaterial sources, so that in that sense ‘English Music’ is an exercise in the spiritual as well as the material. I have always been attracted to the Gothic and spiritual imagination, and I’ve always been interested in visionaries.
People used to ask me: ‘Well, was it the power that attracted you to Bill Clinton?’ And I said, well, how much power do you think the attorney general of Arkansas has? Of course not. It wasn’t that for me. I just a thought he was wonderful in general.
I’ve dated girls that aren’t, this is gonna sound so horrible, that aren’t super smart, but they still are super confident, and that’s more what I’ve been attracted to is the confidence and the sense of humor.

In a romantic comedy, it’s usually a good idea to have people who can’t stand the fact that they are attracted to each other.

I’m attracted to playing people who aren’t necessarily straightforward.
We’re always attracted to the edges of what we are, out by the edges where it’s a little raw and nervy.
Our songs did not transcend being R&B hits. They were R&B hits that white kids were attracted to. And if people bought it, it became rock & roll. That’s marketing. Why couldn’t it still be R&B? The bass pattern didn’t change. The song didn’t change. It was still ‘Yakety Yak’ and ‘Searchin’.’
My initial thoughts of becoming a lawyer changed in high school as I became more attracted to math and science and began talking about being an engineer.
There’s a pattern in Bush 43’s presidency of being attracted to the big and the bold, and my whole reading of him is that he was instinctively uncomfortable with what you might call a modulated foreign policy – a foreign policy of adjustment, of degree.
I think there is a certain sensibility to someone you are attracted to and when it rubs off that’s good.
I tend to be attracted to darker scents. I’m not a floral girl. But I do like this old fragrance I used to wear called Versace Red Jeans. I have an eBay alert that tells me when it comes back!

I am not attracted to those politicians who are short on vision and only want to make money. I like those who have vision.
When I first started acting in college, at Cal, the thing that I loved about acting was not being onstage but going into rehearsals. The thing, as I look back on it now, that I was most attracted to, was that I felt like I’d found my family. It was just a bunch of loonies.
I am attracted to myths.
Some people have these small, positive schemes for survival, a kind of strength that I am attracted to, maybe because I’m prone to the blues.

You know, I endeavor to be more like my older brother. He’s very magnetic. He’s actually very much like ‘Castle’ in that people are attracted to him, and just want to be near him. You want to know where my brother is in a crowded room? He’s the guy with the crowd around him.
Nostalgia is a very complicated subject for me. I’m attracted by nostalgia but I refuse it intellectually.
I was obsessed with country music when I was a kid, and it’s definitely had a huge influence on the way I write songs. I was always attracted to songs that had a brilliant pun or a clever turn of phrase, but came from a dark, bitter place. As a writer, I’ve always gravitated towards that feeling.

It’s not difficult to be attracted to Rupert Penry-Jones.
Maybe it was because my resignation letter was well written, and this attracted the attention of the factory supervisor. They kept me on and gave me a promotion to head up my own newly created department.
I liked science very much. A science teacher in high school inspired me, and because of him, I began studying science at the university.

I’ve always been attracted to comedy that was really close to the line and made people a little uncomfortable, because that’s where progress comes from.

I don’t know what women are attracted to. I can’t tell, but certainly I have no notion of having sex appeal or being seductive in any way.

I definitely was attracted to similar things in punk and science. They both depend on a healthy dose of skepticism.
I guess I am attracted to older women. I’m looking for a 40-something who has had her heart broken two or three hundred times. She’s going to be fun!

I think pop culture underestimates people. The message is, ‘Being yourself is the worst thing you could possibly be.’ But people are still attracted to it.

I’m attracted to stories of people who don’t belong together, who embark on something and find themselves in places they don’t belong.
I’m just attracted to playing people who are ostensible unlikable. That’s not to say that there’s something in there that makes you care. It might be that you just find them so awful that you just can’t stop watching, like a car crash.
Usually it’s the guys that don’t follow you around, who you’re attracted to!

The energy of the metal is what I’ve always loved and the energy I do on stage with standup, I mean, I’m not Metallica, but I’ve always extremely attracted and driven by that energy and the thought-provoking lyrics and drive. That’s an attitude every standup show I go in. I go in to crush your face.
I’ve read stories from people who say they always knew they were attracted to the same sex, or that they figured it out at a young age. I’m not one of them. I had practically no idea until one night in my sophomore year of high school.

What attracted me to Melania is her strength, her independence, her doesn’t-matter-what-anybody-else-thinks attitude.
I realize I love crazy ladies. Of course I don’t like to think of myself as one, but maybe I am, too. I dunno. I’m always drawn to them; I think it’s because I’m attracted to people who aren’t in the business of people-pleasing: saying what they really think, not passive-aggressive at all.
I think I’m attracted to writers who tell us something about ourselves.

I enjoyed the theatrics and the physical demands of everything that went on in the ring. But I was, initially, a relatively shy kid.

NYC is chaotic. And I am attracted to chaos.
I’m attracted to male gestures and sexuality.

What attracted to me about it was the cast. Working on ‘New Girl’ – I like working with an ensemble.
I shouldn’t say this, but I always love the sidekicks. I want to do a leading-lady role in a film – absolutely. But I find that a lot of times I get attracted to the sidekick role. They stand out a little more because they’re quirkier, they’re funnier, they’re crazier.
RIKEN has attracted numerous outstanding scientists from inside and outside Japan, and these people have achieved creative and outstanding results.

I was as repelled by the French as I was attracted by their country.

I started using contact microphones that you can place on common, ordinary objects, like a rake. I put a microphone on it and it picked up the tines vibrating and turned it into a horrible din. What attracted me to it was the horrible din – that’s what I really liked.
I hoped that being attracted to men might go away, but what I never ever hoped would go away were the feelings of femininity, and of softness and fragility, that could live inside of a boy. They were private, but they were mine.
The World Series of Poker has always attracted a competitive international field.
I let go of the notion of wanting someone to ignore the way I look in order to find me attractive, because really, what kind of relationship would that be? One where someone’s only attracted to you because they’re ignoring a fundamental part of you? No thanks.
My faith was undermined by the same sort of things that make people skeptics of religion in general. Part of it was, there was no real place for me in Judaism.

I still get attracted to people but having a relationship isn’t fair on the other person.

I am still attracted to stories about people who are considered to be on the outside of society. I still seek inspiration from those stories.

When I give over to somebody’s vision rather than have an idea of what I need to do, it takes me to places I wouldn’t have got to by myself. I’m always attracted to a strong director.
I think, since the beginning, I have been attracted to unconventional films.
When I think about Plastic Man, he was genuinely the first funny super hero. I’m obviously attracted to that. There’s also this great mixture of tragedy in there, too, that I love. The humor comes from a place of pain.
I’d always wanted to be an action heroine. That’s a chick dream, getting to wear a leather bodysuit and be blonde and kick ass. But, what really attracted me to ‘Dredd’ was the script. It was fantastic! It was about people and characters, and not just about explosions and fighting.
I’m not likely to be attracted to characters I’ve already done. I have to be almost frightened by the possibility of taking it on. Over the years, I realise I must enjoy walking that edge; I keep doing it.
I love life. I love my friends. I love to eat. Too many things, I love. I am very much an anti-historical character. I am attracted to happy people. Happy people with very grave problems.
Sometimes, people are attracted to each other without knowing what or why or when it happens.
Initially, kids are attracted to Superman as a hero because he can take care of problems and still appear as friendly as your dad.
I no longer feel attracted to the well-made novel. I want to write the story that will zero in and give you intense, but not connected, moments of experience. I guess that’s the way I see life. People remake themselves bit by bit and do things they don’t understand.
I just have to go against the grain. I mean, I can be objective and do what I need to do, handle my everyday living, follow directions, etc. But there’s something that’s always been attracted to that taboo. It’s been like that since I was a child.
Major labels didn’t start showing up really until they smelled money, and that’s all they’re ever going to be attracted to is money-that’s the business they’re in- making money.
I’ve always been attracted to the ‘don’t follow the rules’ type of girl, the rocker girl. I’ve always been attracted to somebody who you can lose yourself in the moment with. You can hang out with her, and it’s like you’re the only two people in the room.
Whether it be a red eyeliner or a graphic line on the crease of my lids, I’m more attracted to the ideas of something interesting than being ‘pretty.’

I’m way more attracted to character stuff and darker roles. It’s just my personality, I guess.
A lot of guys and people in our society think that chicks just love dudes with money. Chicks love dudes who are successful who happen to have money – do you know what I mean? Chicks are attracted to dudes that are doing their own thing.
I’m attracted to things that are in direct opposition to something that I’ve just done. It’s not like I’m trying to make the right chess move. It’s more just that personal thing where you get connected to something for so long and then you want to do something that’s in opposition to that.
I wasn’t a girl who grew up wearing dresses, but I was always attracted to fabric. When we’d go to a shop, the fabric I’d pick was always the most expensive. It was always the silk or cashmere. It was something in me, that desire to choose quality. It’s the same now.
I think talent makes me really attracted to someone more than anything.
I was very lucky to be raised by a very strong woman, and I have strong sisters. I’ve always been attracted to those types of women.

On my first night at boarding school, I felt entirely alone. I was shocked, frightened and intensely homesick, but I soon discovered that expressing these emotions, instead of bringing help and consolation, attracted a gloating, predatory fascination.
Ironically, it is only when disaster strikes that the shuttle makes the headlines. Its routine flights attracted less media interest than unmanned probes to the planets or the images from the Hubble Telescope. The fate of Columbia (like that of Challenger in 1986) reminded us that space is still a hazardous environment.
I was attracted to the bad boys, the troublemakers. You know, the ones that were really cute but didn’t come home. So I have a couple of failed marriages under my belt, but that’s OK.
I think I’m attracted to outlaws because they make me feel safe inside, like a little child.
