Now, all the movies are for teenagers. It's very difficult for an actress to find really deep, beautiful characters to play.
A big part of what I wanted to do with this character was go from when I was a boy and try and develop into a man, really try and play him as a man who is on this search, on a journey of personal, spiritual, political, social discovery.
I can choose either to be a victim of the world or an adventurer in search of treasure. It's all a question of how I view my life.
An humble knowledge of thyself is a surer way to God than a deep search after learning.
I've been called many names like perfectionist, difficult and obsessive. I think it takes obsession, takes searching for the details for any artist to be good.
I put on the fat suit and went outside and walked around. I was really nervous about being found out, but nobody would even make eye contact with me. It really upset me.
But now I really don't want to work unless I really, really care about a project.
I love my dad, although I'm definitely critical of him sometimes, like when his pants are too tight. But I love him so much and I try to be really supportive of him.
I have a different approach. I don't file lawsuits because I really don't care.
I don't really see science fiction as fiction. I can imagine colonies on Mars and everything.
I've just done a commercial in the U. S. in which I talk about stocks, shares and bonds. Everyone is amazed. They ask me: 'You really know about that stuff or did you just learn it for the commercial?' I tell them I wouldn't do it unless I understood and had an interest.
Well, for us, in history where goodness is a rare pearl, he who was good almost takes precedence over he who was great.
The idea of seeing everybody clad the same is not really my cup of tea.
When a man is shooting a handgun, it's just like he is shooting because that's his job, and he has no other choice. It's no good. When a girl is shooting a handgun, it's really something.
I'm very happy with the way I write. I think I do it good. But I've never really considered myself a writer.
The truth is rarely pure and never simple.
Riches do not consist in the possession of treasures, but in the use made of them.
I did that dance single as a one-off. It was a fun song - I really wanted to do it. But I have no idea what direction I am going in.
All good books have one thing in common - they are truer than if they had really happened.
The majority is always wrong; the minority is rarely right.
He was a great patriot, a humanitarian, a loyal friend; provided, of course, he really is dead.
Beauty is an ecstasy; it is as simple as hunger. There is really nothing to be said about it. It is like the perfume of a rose: you can smell it and that is all.
A man must know how to estimate a sour face.? The sour face of the multitude, like thier sweet faces, have no deep cause, but are put on and off as the wind blows and the newspaper directs.
I don't think there's much point in putting me a deep, dark, heavy, emotional film because there are people who do it so much better than I do.
I like the character roles. Somewhere back there I really came to the conclusion in my mind that the difference between acting and stardom was major.
