Star hollywoodienne et sex-symbol à l'instar de Marilyn Monroe, Greta Garbo, Louise Brooks ou James Dean, il est aussi connu pour son implication dans le combat pour les droits civiques aux États-Unis, notamment pour la reconnaissance des droits des Amérindiens et des Afro-Américains.

„No figure of his influence has so precariously balanced a handful of unforgettable achievements against a brimming barrelful of embarrassments.
And yet the reverence in which he is held by his profession is unshakable.“

— Marlon Brando
Context: No figure of his influence has so precariously balanced a handful of unforgettable achievements against a brimming barrelful of embarrassments. And yet the reverence in which he is held by his profession is unshakable. His sometime friend and co-star Jack Nicholson said it simply and best: "He gave us our freedom." By which he meant that Brando's example permitted actors to go beyond characterizations that were merely well made, beautifully spoken and seemly in demeanor; allowed them to play not just a script's polished text but its rough, conflicting subtext as well. Richard Schickel, in The TIME 100: The Most Important People of the Century (8 June 1998)

„I have decided to tell the story of my life as best I can, so that my children can separate the truth from the myths that others have created about me, as myths are created about everyone swept up in the turbulent and distorting maelstrom of celebrity in our culture.“

— Marlon Brando
Context: I have always considered my life a private affair and the business of no one beyond my family and those I love. Except for moral and political issues that aroused in me a desire to speak out, I have done my utmost throughout my life, for the sake of my children and myself, to remain silent … But now, in my seventieth year, I have decided to tell the story of my life as best I can, so that my children can separate the truth from the myths that others have created about me, as myths are created about everyone swept up in the turbulent and distorting maelstrom of celebrity in our culture. Songs My Mother Taught Me (1994)

„I don't think I was constructed to be monogamous.“

— Marlon Brando
Context: I don't think I was constructed to be monogamous. I don't think it's the nature of any man to be monogamous. Men are propelled by genetically ordained impulses over which they have no control to distribute their seed. 1994 statement, as quoted in Kosher Sex : A Recipe for Passion and Intimacy (2000) by Shmuley Boteach

„When I lie on the beach there naked, which I do sometimes, and I feel the wind coming over me and I see the stars up above and I am looking into this very deep, indescribable night, it is something that escapes my vocabulary to describe.“

— Marlon Brando
Context: When I lie on the beach there naked, which I do sometimes, and I feel the wind coming over me and I see the stars up above and I am looking into this very deep, indescribable night, it is something that escapes my vocabulary to describe. Then I think: 'God, I have no importance. Whatever I do or don't do, or what anybody does, is not more important than the grains of sand that I am lying on, or the coconut that I am using for my pillow.' So I really don't think in the long sense. New York Times (July 2, 2004)

„Even today I meet people who think of me automatically as a tough, insensitive, coarse guy named Stanley Kowalski.“

— Marlon Brando
Context: Even today I meet people who think of me automatically as a tough, insensitive, coarse guy named Stanley Kowalski. They can't help it, but, it is troubling. Songs My Mother Taught Me (1994)
