It's a risk casting anyone against type or what they're known to do. But there's one thing better than having a great actor, which is having a great actor who's never done what you're asking him to do. He's hungry to get out of the trailer every day and hungry to test himself.
I know one day I'll be considered too old. I think 40-year-old women actually look more healthy and fit than some girls in their 20s. I've met women who have way better bodies in their 40s because they've been working on them for all these years.
People think at the end of the day that a man is the only answer to fulfillment. Actually a job is better for me.
Every day after I wake up, I think, 'Wait... this can't be real; I'm still going to wake up.'
People think that at the end of the day a man is the only answer. Actually, a fulfilling job is better for me.
I don't believe that old cliche that good things come to those who wait. I think good things come to those who want something so bad they can't sit still.
Many people will say, well, clothes should be worn; but I think people can look at them in public, like seeing a film. I think museum exhibitions are very important.
The mind ought sometimes to be diverted that it may return to better thinking.
For one swallow does not make a summer, nor does one day; and so too one day, or a short time, does not make a man blessed and happy.
I think it's better when you're natural, when you just do whatever you want, instead of doing classes where I see all these other people holding back because they've been trained with certain skills or techniques. I'm like, whatever.
Nobody thinks of themselves as sexy, really. Some days you go, 'Hey, I'm not going too bad today.' But if you try and be sexy, you'll never be sexy.
I do not believe a man can ever leave his business. He ought to think of it by day and dream of it by night.
I think I am a much better actor than I have allowed myself to be.
I thought I couldn't afford to take her out and smoke as well. So I gave up cigarettes. Then I took her out and one day I looked at her and thought: "Oh well," and I went back to smoking again, and that was better.
I like to work. The self-esteem and satisfaction that I get from working makes me a better person, which makes me a better mom. I feel lucky because I have the luxury of working only one or two days a week.
The mind ought sometimes to be diverted, that it may return the better to thinking.
Writing is good, thinking is better. Cleverness is good, patience is better.
I think it better that in times like these a poet's mouth be silent, for in truth we have no gift to set a statesman right.
I'm getting better now, but I used to be incredibly awkward with girls. I think any guy who says 'I've never had an awkward moment with a girl' is a liar.
That's like asking you to pick your favorite child... I do however, think Bird on a Wire was one of my finest works. Oscar caliber.
If we were living in ancient Rome or Greece, I would be considered sickly and unattractive. The times dictate that thin is better for some strange reason, which I think is foolish.
I don't think people understand that being poor means you have to work from dawn until dusk just to survive through the day. I think there's some notion that poor people lie about all day not doing anything.
You sit at the board and suddenly your heart leaps. Your hand trembles to pick up the piece and move it. But what chess teaches you is that you must sit there calmly and think about whether it's really a good idea and whether there are other, better ideas.
I will never forget my beautiful days with you in Shanklin, they are certainly the most pleasant ones of my life. Look, I have tears in my eyes just to think about it. I am furious to be here, it is the end of happiness for a whole year.
Acting is something different to everybody. I just know that if you watch an actor or actress getting better and better, I think that's them just understanding themselves better and better.
