Top 10 Best Wil Wheaton Quotes

#10

 

Either you have a sense of humor about [being a former child star], or you're in rehab. There's not a lot of gray area.

When I was a kid, I wanted to be as good an actor as Patrick, as cool as Frakes, and as funny as Brent. From time to time, one of them would say something to me that made me feel like I'd taken a step in that direction, and it always meant the world to me. I loved it when Brent would joke around with me, because it made me feel like I was the peer I so desperately wanted to be, instead of the clueless teenager I knew I was.

For getting hot alien ass, Kirk wins without even breaking a sweat. But for diplomacy and coolness, Picard kicks Kirk’s ass.

I met [Shatner] on the set of Star Trek V, and he was horrible to me. He was cruel, and dismissive, and treated me the way I understand he treats pretty much everyone who tells him how much they loved him as Captain Kirk.

People think that because I was on TV, I've got millions of dollars and a huge house and several cars and servants. And I don't. I live a very modest lifestyle. I'm definitely not an acting trust-fund baby. I was in a car accident a few years ago, and as soon as we got out of the cars, the woman in the other car looked at me, and I could tell immediately that she recognized me as this kid from Star Trek. She suddenly developed all these pains, and I totally called shenanigans on her. I was like, "Lady, you're not hurt and I'm not rich, so don't even bother."

No matter what I do with my life, or how successful I am, I will always be a socially awkward penguin inside.

After being away from Star Trek for a few years, I really hated it. I felt like it was a giant shadow that loomed over every single thing that I did ... my friends had been saying that I was never going to escape Star Trek, and I realized that it's stupid to try. I needed to find a way to embrace it, not run away. I also realized that it wasn't Star Trek that I hated, it was the way I acted when I left. I was a stupid, arrogant, loudmouth, brash, unsophisticated 18-year-old who thought he knew everything and behaved like an idiot.

Some days, you're just going to be Sideshow Bob, and the world is going to be a dozen rakes.

I remember playing Star Trek on the jungle gym in elementary school. Back then I always wanted to be Spock, because I thought he was too cool ... but the kids who were Kirk always got to fight, while I stood there saying "fascinating."

Some of the writers wrote great stories for him, and some of the writers really grabbed on to this idea that Wesley was this super-smart kid, and they used that as their deus ex machina. Wesley became a plot device and not a character. What was going on with me—Wil Wheaton the person—at the time was exactly what should have been going on with Wesley Crusher the character. Wesley was smart enough to hold his own with his peers. He was a good Starfleet officer who could do all this stuff. I feel like such a fucking dork saying that. But I was a good enough actor to hold my own with some very good actors. I was comfortable, and I had these skills, and all that stuff. What I didn't have was the maturity and the grace to deal with them as equals. We could work together, but we couldn't hang out. It should have been the same way for Wesley. We should have seen how the kids his own age had a hard time relating to him and vice versa, just because there was a disconnect between his intellectual brain and his emotional brain. All that stuff was going on with me, and I wished they'd taken advantage of it. That was the big disappointment for me.
