Personal Quotes (6)

(2007, on Grandma's Boy) I read the script and I thought it was kind of... Well, I wasn't sure it was the type of film that I wanted to do. There were scenes where they were, you know, masturbating on the grandmother and stuff. [Laughs.] I initially passed on it, and then (Adam) Sandler called me and said, "Nealon, you sure don't want to do this film? I just want to make sure that you really think hard about it, because if it's not a good film, no one's gonna see it, but if it is a good film, I'd hate for you to miss out." I figured he was right, so I did it. I don't think it did that well in the theaters, but since it went to video, I have more and more people coming up to me telling me how much they love Grandma's Boy.
(2007, on Little Nicky) Well first of all, that was a great time. Any time you do an Adam Sandler film, it's kind of like a boys' club, because you're hanging out and there are guitars around, and basketballs and footballs and electric bikes and scooters and different people dropping by. I think Little Nicky was a divergence from the films he was used to doing, and he was taking a risk. I admire him for doing that. We had a great cast in there. I remember I had these breasts on my head, because I played "The Gatekeeper," a.k.a. "Tit-Head," and you know, I never knew the power of breasts before. Even with them on my head, the amount of attention they got on the set-everybody wanted to feel them, guys and girls. Breasts weigh a lot, too. They had a condom filled with water in each breast, and they must have weighed about 10 pounds. They jiggled and everything. And then at the end of the day when they removed them, once again I was nobody, and nobody cared about me.
(2007, on addressing drugs with his kids because of his role on Weeds) I have one son who is seven months old, and we've actually been talking about that a lot lately. I've told him time and time again, "Just say no." So he can shake his head "no" now when I wave a doobie-a fake doobie-in front of him. We practice. I say, "Hey dude, you want some of this?" And he shakes his head "no." So I don't think we'll have to deal with that problem.
(2007, on Daddy Day Care) Of course, that was an Eddie Murphy film, so there was a whole different vibe, working on that film, as opposed to working on a Sandler film, which I'd done a few of. First of all, there were tons of kids running around. I'm surprised I ever had a kid after doing that film. When you put that many kids together, it just becomes a madhouse. I enjoyed working with Jeff Garlin on that movie, and Eddie Murphy was very nice and cordial. I didn't see him that much. He just basically showed up on the set and chatted a little bit and did a scene and then he was gone.
(2007, on the fake pot used on Weeds) I gotta tell you, that stuff we use on the show is pretty relaxing. It's a honeyrose herb. They roll it into a reefer and we smoke it. I don't smoke pot or cigarettes, so inhaling smoke as a non-smoker-it doesn't matter what it is, it's going to make you lightheaded. It kind of makes you just crash on the couch, where it's difficult to get up. Some of the other characters have been addicted to honeyrose herb, so this show is perfect for them.
[on cancer] We all know somebody who has been affected by it. The disease affects so many people, so I continue to support these types of events to help find a cure.
