[on the paparazzi] When I'm with my kids, and someone is scaring my kids - which is what they'll do - that gets me fired up. The hairs on the back of my neck stand up. I get hot. I get flustered. And in the States, they're there, 24/7, at the gate, six feet away when you take out the rubbish. Nah mate, you don't have the right to do that. I don't give a fuck what anyone says - you're not a bonus to my career.
I remember how differently people treated me when things went well. Some directors and producers who never gave a shit - at best, they'd have given me a sideways glance - next time I saw them, they're my best friend. That's gross.
Everything shifted for me after Rush (2013). It wasn't as financially successful as other things I'd done, but it gave me more movement, more options, more doors opening, more meetings. All of a sudden, it's, 'Oh, wow! You're an actor!'
[In an appearance at San Diego Comic-Con on July 26, 2014, noting that, in the paper Marvel Universe, the new Thor will be a woman] I don't want to speak too early and jinx it, but I think that could be my Oscar.
[on life in the Australian Outback] It's beautiful up there in the Northern Territory. My earliest memories are of buffalo and crocodiles. As a kid, you don't own a pair of shoes because it's too hot!
I love the adventure that comes with this work, the travel and all that. But also the craft, the storytelling. From a kid, I remember enjoying certain books and getting swept away in movies.
