When I go to a country, I go to flea markets, antique stores. I am always looking for something.
Good painting is the kind that looks like sculpture.
I'm just trying to make a smudge on the collective unconscious.
That's probably when I get the most angry at American movies, when they just so cynically manipulate the audience without even trying to give a good story.
If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business.
I am good, but not an angel. I do sin, but I am not the devil. I am just a small girl in a big world trying to find someone to love.
And I like the idea of change. Because I don't see why we should hang a painting on the wall and then just not think of it anymore because it's there like a piece of furniture.
I like to rehearse with the actors scenes that are not in the script and will not be in the film because what we're really doing is trying to establish their character, and good acting to me is about reacting.
The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
There are a lot of things that come to bear on movies now that I don't think are good for movies. They're trying to appeal to the biggest demographic and, when they do that, you sometimes flatten out.
We were looking for a market stall to sell these records, but couldn't find one. There was a little shop, however, on Kings Road that was going bust.
It's no good trying to keep up old friendships. It's painful for both sides. The fact is, one grows out of people, and the only thing is to face it.
Godspell was a good leap for me, it was a good shop window.
It is no good to try to stop knowledge from going forward.
But I'm going to be a real good boy and take it day by day and try to concentrate on what's most important to me, and that's offering women a service.
It is no good to try to stop knowledge from going forward. Ignorance is never better than knowledge.
Get that right, then- if you get the quality right, then the marketability or whatever; your ability to sell videos or your ability to earn money or whatever, will follow naturally. But try to be creatively lead rather than market lead. And that's important to me.
It's actually great to shoot far away from Hollywood because we don't have the distractions of the parties and premieres and all that. And, of course, you can save money - there are no good shoe stores.
If it looks good, you'll see it. If it sounds good, you'll hear it. If it's marketed right, you'll buy it. But... if it's real, you'll feel it.
My ideal relaxation is working on upholstry. I spend hours in junk shops buying furniture. I do all the upholstery work myself, and it's like therapy.
A good film is when the price of the dinner, the theatre admission and the babysitter were worth it.
So, no, I'm not trying to crack into Hollywood, although I'll make films there if they're good scripts.
It can get a little costly if you try and leave it until then to write songs. But you're writing all the time. You're collecting songs. I've had songs that have been collected over a two-year period for my next record.
A market is never saturated with a good product, but it is very quickly saturated with a bad one.
I think it's sort of a rite of passage for a British actor to try and get the American accent and have a good crack at doing that.
