"When you think about George [Jason Alexander's character on 'Seinfeld'], this is a guy who had a mission; he's not Generation X, he's Generation Why. I'm Generation Who Knows? My father probably behaved toward me the same way, he gave me the leeway to do what I wanted to do, but nobody wanted me to be an actor." --Stiller in The LOS ANGELES TIMES, April 28, 1994
"I used to think I was a comedian, and then when I started to think I was funny, my wife said 'You're not very funny. You're better off when you don't try to be funny.' So then I started to be an actor, but I didn't think I was that good of an actor. So who knows?" --Stiller in THE LOS ANGELES TIMES, April 28, 1994
