[on 'Robin Williams (I)' (qv] It was as though he had three brains going at full speed all the time.
I was born naked and walk around naked at home. My parents walked around naked and when my friends in school still thought babies were brought by storks I could tell them how they were really made. I have a very relaxed relationship[p with my genitals.
[on any potential sexual awareness emanating from making "Nymphomaniac'I and II] Well, it's not only about that, but if you get a chance to learn about something that's good, isn't it? I'd never heard about the 'silent duck' before. I have a lot of female friends who consider me one of their girlfriends because they talk very openly in front of me, so I've heard quite a lot.
Th main pleasure of working with Lars [von Trier] is that you feel absolutely free and safe, and you can't fail because if you fuck up it's considered good...We've matured a little, hopefully, but hopefully not too much.
[on his first time on stage] I played a heap of snow in a school play. I was under a sheet, and crawled out when spring came. I often say I'll never reach the same artistic level again.
I'm not religious or anything, but to me it's great fun and it's nice to have a lot of kids. They take care of each other.

It takes a long time to make me beautiful, but it goes fast to make me ugly.
