Quotes

#Quote
1(On acting in violent scenes with his character, Jimmy Collins, in Empathy (2007)) I'm not like that in real life, so when I get the chance to punch a bit of air and let out a bit of steam, I love it.
2(in a 2007 interview) I said to my son not that long ago, 'What do you want to do when you're older?' He said, 'I'm going to have to go away and think about it.' So off he went. He came back and said, 'Daddy, I've decided that I want to be an actor.'
3(in a 2007 interview) If you'd asked me if I believed in the paranormal this time last year I'd have said no. I used to be an atheist, but I've chilled out a bit on that. A couple of things in the past year have made me think maybe there is something to it.
4("we" being British actors) American actors are incredibly professional when preparing for a shot or getting into character, whereas we tend to be having a laugh and mucking about. We'll be more relaxed up until the point the camera rolls. That's not a criticism by any means, but there's a different way of working.
5(on shooting in New York) It was a dream to shoot there and not be a tourist.
