My big break was really Liz Meriwether saw me in a movie called ‘Paper Heart‘ and really liked it, and then saw me in a movie called ‘Ceremony’ because she knew Max Winkler and said, ‘I want you to be in ‘No Strings Attached,’ but you gotta audition for it.’ From that it was easier for her to get me in ‘New Girl.’
Somebody said something funny to me the other day. They said, ‘Wolper, until two weeks ago, your tombstone was going to say, ‘David Wolper, the man who produced ‘Roots.’ I think the tombstone now has a new inscription. It’s going to be ‘David Wolper, the man who produced the opening ceremony of the 1984 Olympics.’
I treat my relationships like marriages. The ceremony isn’t that important to me.
I love the way Indian weddings are hosted. We have kept everything traditional – except our engagement ceremony.
I think any success you can have on the tennis court, doubles helps. If you’re playing on the weekend, you’re in the trophy ceremony at the end of it, one of the last guys in the locker room, it can only give you confidence.
Like most people – unless they’re very practised at it or have no warm blood at all in their veins – I feel a little apprehensive about the red carpet. It’s always a bit bewildering when people are taking pictures and asking questions before the ceremony.
Opening Ceremony is my number one favorite place to shop here. It’s the only place I’ll shop in New York with my son. All of the sales people are so cool; the music is great; it’s just like a big fun house, so he stays entertained.
People are obsessed with my haircut; everyone wants to do something with my hair before the ceremony. Very senior figures tell me their hairstylist wants to do my hair for free. It’s surprising. People from television are interested almost exclusively in aspects of my hair and my hairdresser.
I believe in ceremony. I think ceremony is important, pomp and circumstance, tradition. I’m into those things.
Winning the Outstanding Contribution award is great, because you know you have won in advance. Previously, I have been really nervous during the ceremony because you have no idea if you are going to get called up on stage. This time I could relax and enjoy myself.
This ceremony and the intellectual aura associated with the Nobel Prizes have grown from the wisdom of a practical chemist who wrote a remarkable will.
I love Opening Ceremony, Kenzo – anything Humberto Leon and Carol Lim touch. I drool over Christopher Kane, Mary Katrantzou, Delpozo, and Wes Gordon.
When I was a young man, it was very fashionable not to have the sacred thread ceremony, and among very respectable families, mind you. As a rebel, I decided to do it.
Groceries became a revelation: the people coming out with bundles of food. It’s all like a great ceremony, and the whole drudgery of shopping has become my inspiration.

If you’re at an award ceremony, you’re against your mates.
I was profoundly moved to be the first United Nations Secretary-General to attend the Peace Memorial Ceremony in Hiroshima. I also visited Nagasaki.

The Olympic Games is one of those moments that you remember forever, from the moment that you step foot in the country that you’re competing in to the Closing Ceremony.
I really like the Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony collection – all of those kind of laser-cut leather dresses.
In any awards ceremony, if you’re a finicky person like myself, you can pick a multitude of things to nag about. I get frustrated with the comedy category because it feels like it gets sidelined a lot of the time for all kinds of things – not sidelined, marginalized.
What I needed and actually need is a discipline of tradition, which is lacking in our civilization. Discipline of tradition and the ceremony of humbleness.

Five days after the Tsarnaev brothers blew up Boston‘s most sacred event, and just 24 hours after one brother was killed and the other was caught, everyone decided that it was OK to play baseball at Fenway again. The game happened on a Saturday afternoon, preceded by an emotional ceremony and many prayers.

The day I graduated, I skipped the ceremony to go straight to California for the dot-com boom.
