(On getting into acting) "I guess I really started doing it in college and I mean clearly for every actor, there`s that sort of applause which is nice and all that stuff. I could never decide what to do and as an actor I get to be so many different things so I never had to decide to do one thing, but be an actor and be all these different things. I used to put a lot of philosophical weight on it, and I thought it was going to be something that was going to kind of answer great questions of life, which of course it is not, particularly not acting, I really did have this sort of pretentious attitude about it, which has definitely changed, and I don`t have that anymore. I guess your relationship to it always changes as you grow older, so now it feels like much more of a job to me, which it actually nice. I like that, Instead of feeling it was some sort of a mission I had."
  • Despite his character of Miles in Sideways (2004) and his passion for pinot, Giamatti himself admits that he has very little knowledge of wines and is not much of a fan of them.
  • Graduated from Choate Rosemary Hall
  • Is a big fan of Science-fiction.
  • Was listed as a potential nominee on the both the 2003 and 2007 Razzie Award nominating ballots. He was listed as a suggestion in the Worst Supporting Actor category on the 2003 ballot for his performance in the film Big Fat Liar (2002) and in the Worst (Leading) Actor category for his performance in the film Lady in the Water (2006). He failed to receive either nomination.
  • He is the younger brother of Marcus Giamatti.
