Web Series

  • The Mind of Jake Paul (2018), as himself


“I overcame a lot of things, growing up, as everyone does.”

“I’m gonna forget all the negative press and focus on being the best version of myself.”

“Nobody’s life is perfect, and each individual will have their own struggles and stipulations.”

“I want to make music and songs about things that real musicians and artist aren’t able to make songs about – you wouldn’t hear Justin Bieber making a song about homework, or, like, you wouldn’t see someone make a song with their parents on the track.”

“The Jake Paulers are the strongest army out there. Dab.”

“I work harder than every single person I know, and the only person that is on the same level as me is my brother. If you look at the top social media stars, it’s me and him. I think that’s our advantage. We’re not the prettiest; we’re not even the funniest, we’re not the wittiest, whatever it is.”

“I moved to L.A. at 17, and for the fist time, I had to realize that if I run out of money, I’m moving back to Ohio – and I didn’t want to do that at all.”

“I always say fitness is the first step to greatness. And I try to encourage my fans to be on the same page as that. Because fitness is the first step to setting a habit that you necessarily don’t want to do but are still committed to doing every single day. And so I think that’s why I always, always try to get a workout in.”

“You can become whoever you want to be. You can do what you want to do.”

“Off camera, I’m, like, chill and very laid-back. I don’t know if the word is ‘shy,’ but ‘reserved.’ I’m always thinking.”

“I got invited to the White House, and I tried to sleep there overnight without permission. The Secret Service came to my house, and I had to talk to them. They legally couldn’t do anything because I didn’t do anything wrong, but they yelled at me like a principal.”

“Disney was, like, such an amazing experience always for me, such a huge part of my life.”

“I had to overcome bullies and other people who didn’t like me and tormented me. I overcame those things with positive affirmations and setting goals. When I would set goals, I wouldn’t let anything get in the way of me breaking them. As I found success, a lot of those things subsided and became less important.”
