Simon Helberg's Quotes

  • I'm married, so I tend not to hit on every girl.
  • I don't believe I'll be in the new Arrested Development (2003) unless they ask me, in which case, okay! That's how easy I am to get.
  • Well, I think that everybody is kind of a nerd at heart.
  • Actually, when I was young, I believe I met Nicolas Cage. I think I was probably eight, and I remember seeing him at somebody's house - it was an event and he happened to be there. People would ask me if I was his son, because I looked like him at that point, so I do remember feeling some connection and just wanting to say, like, 'Papa!'
  • I actually struggled through teaching myself to cook because I'm completely ignorant in the kitchen. So I did really macho things like trying to make my own curry. Really hardcore stuff.
