“I’m an actor.”as stated by numerous SAG Actors kicked off THE 20TH ANNUAL SCREEN ACTORS GUILD AWARDS.  This is the one show where the actors honor their peers.

“I became a member of the Screen Actors Guild in 1977. Since then, I’ve been a teen idol, a “Bad Influence,” worked in “Wayne’s World” and the White House. I’ve been blessed to work in both comedy and drama; but mostly, I’ve been inspired by my heroes, some of whom are here tonight. And I’ve tried to live up to their ability to reach people in moving and surprising ways and to touch them through the characters that I play. Tonight, I’m grateful to be part of a community that gives me the chance to do that. I’m Rob Lowe and I am an Actor.

So, when I was younger, my mom used to read to me fairy tales, and I grew up believing in I believed in fairies and magic and goblins and trolls. So, naturally, show business was the right line of work for me. And then I’ve been striving to make magic ever since, despite the trolls and goblins. I’m Juliette Lewis. I’m an Actress

I knew I wanted to become an actor the first time I saw “Boyz n the Hood” by John Singleton. I wanted to speak to, speak for and touch people in my community the way that movie touched me. I am Michael Kenneth Williams, and I am an Actor.

In  1995, I decided to move to New York to become an actor. It was very exciting and very challenging. It was the highs of getting a gig and the frustration of not. A ton of rejection, and never knowing where your next job is going to come from. And NOW…it’s the exact same thing. I’m Tony Hale and I’m an Actor.

Over 20 years ago, my first acting coach told me I would never make it in this business due to my “pots and pans acting,” which meant loud, annoying, obnoxious and all over the place. I’m Kaley Cuoco Sweeting and I am proud to say, due to my pots and pans acting, I am an Actor.

Hello. When I was invited to attend the SAG Awards, I literally wept with joy. Then, I caught my reflection in the mirror, and I thought, “Hmm, you look quite interesting when you cry.  Because I am Steve Coogan, and I am an Actor.
My first taste of applause came while spinning on my head as a break-dancer. But, eventually, I got the opportunity to play real, heroic Americans, both civilian and in the military. That’s right, baby, I’m not just no butler! My name is Cuba Gooding, Jr., and I am an Actor!
