Vincent Gallo Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

Though Vincent Gallo has had minor roles in mainstream pictures like “Goodfellas”, “Arizona Dream”, “The Funeral” and “Palookaville”, he’s most correlated with independent pictures, including “Buffalo ’66”, which he composed, directed, scored and starred in and “The Brown Bunny”, which he also wrote, directed, produced, starred in and photographed. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Gallo was a painter in the NYC art scene showing with well-known art dealer Annina Nosei, performed in a rap duet and was part of the initial hip hop television program “Graffiti Rock”, and played in a industrial group called Bohack which released an album titled “It Took Several Wives”. In the early 2000s, he released several solo recordings on WARP records. Gallo is famous for his forthright views and usually sarcastic nature, once saying: “I quit painting in 1990 in the pinnacle of my success simply to refuse individuals my lovely paintings; and I did it out of spite.”

Vincent Gallo’s own feature film “Promises Written in Water”, which he composed, directed, produced and starred in, additionally screened in Competition in the festival. In early 2012 Gallo took part in the three-month exposition of Whitney Biennial.

1Steven Soderbergh sucks. He's just a guy who's sort of like...there's a whole group of guys who pretend to be making special fucking films who are just real players. Wes Anderson sucks. Spike Jonze sucks bad. James Gray sucks.
2Drugs and alcohol cloud your mind. When you drink, you do things you wouldn't do as sober. And that's why most people drink... O.K., but it doesn't interest me.
3[on Spike Jonze] He's the biggest fraud out there. If you bring him to a party he's the least interesting person at the party, he's the person who doesn't know anything. He's the person who doesn't say anything funny, interesting, intelligent. He's a pig piece of shit.
4I wouldn't work for Martin Scorsese for $10 million. He hasn't made a good film in 25 years. I would never work with an egomaniac has-been.
5Sofia Coppola likes any guy who has what she wants. If she wants to be a photographer she'll fuck a photographer. If she wants to be a filmmaker, she'll fuck a filmmaker. She's a parasite just like her fat, pig father was.
6[on Argentina]: This country sucks. If I drop a banana here, everyone kills for it.
7I've never been a popular person, but it doesn't matter. I have everything in my life that I want. I'm not a walking publicity stunt. I'm not an anarchist, or bitter. I'm not trying to be subversive. I just try to remain unguarded, unprotected by fear, and agents and publicists, and I feel comfortable that way.
8I sold The Brown Bunny camera package because I had organized it so methodically, so precisely, that I couldn't let anyone touch it, scratch it, or break it up. I just had to get it out of my life. The package was sold to Sage Stallone who's one of my favorite people in this whole world, one of the smartest, young, goofy kids I've ever known in my whole life. So it went to the right person
9I feel very happy that Bush is our president. One way that you can tell we have a good president, is by how much the French dislike him. The more the French hate him, the better he must be. And they hate this one.
10I became an actor, because of Danny Bonaduce on the "Partridge Family". He's tremendous, so funny and brilliant, and we seemed around the same age, I felt I should be on a show with him. We could have done a good spin-off, "the Danny Bonaduce, Vinnie Gallo show", da-da-da-da- da di da da.
11My parents took an interest in nothing, at home no books, no records. My mother and my father are the emblem of indifference, dryness and bad taste. My father is also terribly stingy, in life as well as in feelings: I have never seen him filling up the bathtub. To save, he used to put the water 4 inches from the bottom. At home everything was ugly, casual, lacking in love, from furniture to clothes, to behaviors...
12The good thing about bicycling is that, since I'm a public figure, I don't have to interact with people. If I walk from here to West Broadway, 50 people will stop me. On my bike, I can just wave. More public figures should ride bikes. It's a good way to deal with people.
13I did my first job as an actor and my first role was in 1978 in Rome. I did a play with an Italian actor named Victor Cavallo who worked with Bernardo Bertolucci. After that I was very much a part of the New York performance art and underground theater and movie scene, so it's been quite awhile. But always very peripheral.
14"Well, if you want to be an actor, move to a major city, either in L.A. or N.Y. and every day do as many things as you possibly can to reach that goal. But make sure that goal is set so high, that if you reach one-tenth of the goal, you've gone a long ways. Fantasize and believe that you could star in a 100 Oscar-winning movies, and just work for that every day. Let's face it, most people want to be actors because they want unconditional love and power and money and to be able to act out a character fantasy that involves themselves.
15I'm so in love with the United States. Not as a patriot. I'm in love with America like it's my first girlfriend. The geography, the people, the smell, the touch, the taste, the gas stations. I'm madly in love with America. Madly in love. And I was the guy that people used to say, "He's so European." I mean, I never felt like that. I don't relate to those monkeys. I just can't relate to them. I'm a super American--Captain America.
16I'm not an artist, I'm a hustler. As a hustler I've done many things. You should really believe it when I tell you that, 'cause I'm not being sarcastic. I'm a total hustler. What that means is I've hustled to make a buck and I've hustled to change the world and I've hustled to take revenge - but it's always hustling. I've never had a career or a single goal. I've never been formally educated. To get things together, to make a living, I constantly have to hustle.
17I told you, I'm an extremist. Even in art, if my work wasn't 50 times more interesting than me and my petty life, it would be useless.
18I never wanted to be an actor. I never want to be an actor. I want to be a movie star. The whole idea of having to act is too gruesome. It's too ambitious for me.
19I don't drink any coffee or take any drugs and I don't smoke cigarettes and I don't eat sugar and I don't take any medicine at all. I eat a lot of fish, vegetables, and I stay away from starches. I'm not so sure my eating behavior is responsible. I look like someone who takes drugs, so I refuse to take even aspirin in order to contradict my appearance. But I like the color brown. Oh, and I don't eat dairy. And I sure do like the color brown.
20Early in elementary school I had a very small moment where I had a different face - a little nose, straight, blond hair. I had a lot of response, from older women and little girls. But at some point when I transformed into a less [attractive] person, I decided to push away my feelings, to protect myself in order to avoid rejection.
21There's nothing self-gratifying about knowing you've played a performance where people may easily dislike the character and associate it with you. There's nothing fun about having people suspicious about why you're making work. I'm clearly not networking or making a bid for popularity. I'm following another motivation, and it's not as a provocateur. It's because I'm blinded, like an idiot, by wanting to preserve and express an insight that I have, or an aesthetic that I believe in. I forget that people react to me personally as the representative of that. Did you see a credit for hair and makeup? How can I be a narcissist? I've never even had hair and makeup done for me on a film. I don't even know what I look like as I'm filming. - on being called a narcissist.
22I'm the happiest the saddest guy in the world can be.
23I don't trust or love anyone. Because people are so creepy. Creepy creepy creeps. Creeping around. Creeping here and creeping there. Creeping everywhere. Crippity crappity creepies.
24I stopped painting in 1990 at the peak of my success just to deny people my beautiful paintings. And I did it out of spite.
