I tried to stick to my game plan, which was always being aware of what my A story was – the love story between a father and his son, and that son and his daughter. Ted Demme

It’s very important to not repeat yourself. After ‘Delhi Belly,’ I was offered 40 ‘Delhi Belly’s and you can’t do that! So ‘Revolver Rani’ is dark and gritty with action, ‘Sooper Se Oopar’ is a big commercial love story, ‘Santa Banta’ is a ‘theth’ Punjabi comedy, ‘Golu Aur Pappu’ is a kids’ film and ‘Amit Sahni Ki List’ is an urban romcom. Vir Das

‘Love Story’ I wrote on my bedroom floor in about 20 minutes. Taylor Swift

I’ve been a huge fan of Hal Ashby forever. And I think that the distinctive thing about ‘Coming Home’ is the love story, and how – kind of emotionally real it is, and how these two characters allow each other to see their – kind of vulnerabilities. And it’s great because it’s a love story that’s not really that cheesy, either. Jonathan Levine

I’ve only read two books in my life: Baseball Sparkplug and Love Story. George Brett

A love story, at least a convincing one, requires three elements – the lover, the beloved, and the adventures they have together. Jane Smiley

‘Out of Sight’ is one of my favorite films ever. Love Steven Soderbergh. ‘Goodfellas’ was a huge influence on me in terms of the use of camera. ‘Black Orpheus,’ a beautiful love story that very few people actually have seen, and that was an influence on ‘Beyond the Lights,’ too, in terms of the look of the film. Gina Prince-Bythewood

I’d love to do a love story. I’ve never done a true love story, which would be awesome. But then again, I don’t think I’ve had a true love story, even in my own life. Maybe that’s something I want to explore in my own life first. Lucas Hedges

The Browning love story? It is an ideal, all too rare, and yet I hardly think it strange. It would have been far stranger had the fates allowed those two brilliant passionate souls to beat themselves out in silence. Marie Corelli

We can make science personal, like a love story or your best friend. Jim Sullivan

Every movie is a love story. Sandra Bullock

It’s rare that you can promote a love story and feel fear in a film. Cary Fukunaga

A famous love story is hard to maintain when you both live in the spotlight. Lauren Bacall

‘Not A Love Story’ is inspired by true events, but it is not based on those events completely. When I first read about the Maria Susairaj case, I was fascinated with the psychological aspects, that two seemingly very ordinary people can go completely berserk. Ram Gopal Varma

In the beginning, I would find a character I understood. That was my focus. Not now – but you basically get offered the exact same thing you just did. Which I find hilarious. I did ‘The Vow,’ and then I had every love story you can imagine thrown at me. And now I’m getting offers for comedies. Channing Tatum

It’s a different thing to write a love story now than in the time of Jane Austen, Eliot, or Tolstoy. One of the problems is that once divorce is possible, once break-ups are possible, it can all become a little less momentous. Mona Simpson

Every love story needs a catalyst of some sort. Ian Somerhalder

Parineeta is a classic love story. Sanjay Dutt

I think, for a love story, the most important element is the music, since you don’t have action sequences or item numbers. It really draws in the audience and adds to at least 70 percent of the opening of the movie. Ranbir Kapoor

I think the best type of action movie combines a love story with the action. Morris Chestnut

Elizabeth Gilbert

One of the pillars of ‘Cyrano’ is recreating a love story and, like any archetype, these great stories tend to be captivating, among other things, because they are made of those universal things that move us. Edgar Ramirez

Probably Lloyd in ‘Say Anything’ is the closest to me – or to who I was at the time. It was just a great love story about people in the ’80s, and we all tried to make it feel as real as possible. It was such a wonderful time. We didn’t leave anything in the gym; we put it all out there. John Cusack

To make a love story, you need a couple of young people, but to reflect on the nature of love, you’re better off with old ones. That is a fact of life and literature – and of the novel ever since it fell in love with love in the 18th century. James Buchan

When you are bringing a love story to screen, how do you embody desire and love? How do you get away from the conventions of romantic comedy where it’s love at first sight? Celine Sciamma

What’s hardest for me to swallow is when there is a love story, say, with a really high-profile male star and there’s no reason I can’t play the part. They say, ‘Oh, we love Halle, we just don’t want to go black with this part.’ Halle Berry

Kathe Koja

It seems to me that romantic comedies used to be about falling in love, but in recent years they’ve really become just comedies where the love story is only there as a spine to hang the jokes on. Nigel Cole

Michael Moore didn’t have to worry that anyone would misinterpret the title of his film, ‘Capitalism: A Love Story,’ because in Hollywood, no one loves capitalism. That’s too bad, because Hollywood is one of capitalism’s greatest successes. Alex Tabarrok

If I could sum up ‘Shadow’s Claim’ in six words: cage fights with hot alpha males. Seriously, though, while the fights are the backdrop for Trehan and Bettina’s love story, the main emphasis is on how Trehan – a pitiless master assassin – wages the ultimate battle to win her heart. Kresley Cole

My favorite movie is ‘Closer’ and ‘Love Story.’ Shelley Hennig

‘Cabin Fever’ was very much inspired by ‘The Thing.’ It’s really a perfect guy’s horror movie: There’s no love story, it’s just straight-up horror. And it’s so well-done. It moves at a slow pace, but it’s really terrific. Eli Roth

‘Love Story’ is actually about a guy that I almost dated. But when I introduced him to my family and my friends, they all said they didn’t like him. All of them! Taylor Swift

History is my passion. So I write what I love to read. I find that if I combine history with a strong, sensual romance, it is like a one-two punch. The reader doesn’t want the history without the romance, and of course the heavier the history, the more it has to be leavened with a sensual, all-consuming love story. Virginia Henley

It’s an indication of how cynical our society has become that any kind of love story with a sad theme is automatically ridiculed as sentimental junk. Winona Ryder

‘Out of Africa,’ Dinesen’s second book, is a love story, though not the one portrayed by Streep and Redford in the film. The memoir is about Dinesen’s love of East Africa – the cultures, the landscapes, the animals. The feeling that saturates the book is reverence. Joanna Scott

‘Harold and Maude’ was a seminal movie for me because it’s not only a beautiful love story, but it’s also about the moment when misfits find each other. Stephen Chbosky

It was a strange experience, making a love story and not getting along with your co-star in any way. Ryan Gosling

My book, ‘Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda,’ is a gay love story. It’s also a story about friendship. Quite honestly, it’s also probably a 320-page product placement for Oreos. Becky Albertalli

I love to have real people of history interact with my fictional characters. History gives me the plot. I research the period meticulously, and then I blend in a romantic and sensual love story to give it balance. The heavier the history, the more romantic the couple must be. Virginia Henley

There are so many romantic comedies made, but very few dramas or love stories. And with a love story, you have to take time to develop three-dimensional characters. Gina Prince-Bythewood

Donnie Yen

Critics seem to forget that every love story is different – that there is uniqueness in even the most commonplace of matches. Sarah MacLean

I’ve read pretty broadly on the Holocaust – both fiction and non-fiction – and to me, ‘The Lost Wife’ is one of the best. The horrors of war serve as a backdrop to a love affair that spans a lifetime, and that love story stayed with me long after I put down the book. Lauren Weisberger

I am very happy to design haute couture. It’s a love story between couture and me. Yves Saint Laurent
