#Quote
1[on Hailee Steinfeld] I think she has a natural awareness of what she needs to do in front of the camera. She's got that freshness and that immediacy which is so exciting. You can see it in her eyes all through her performance as Juliet. There's a real light behind her eyes. That's going to stand her in good stead for film acting.
2If one of your fantasies is lying on a bed in Hollywood, surrounded by eight naked women, then another is to have a beautiful wife and a nice rambling house in London with three kids running around... perhaps it's good to have a bit of tension in your fantasy life.

#Trademark
1Often portrays American military officials, despite being British.
2Often plays mentally unstable or violent characters
3Flawless American accent
4Red Hair
