Even though I haven't watched yet the 2nd part of "Twilight" I fully understand the obsession with Robert.I think he is really hot!
I'm a laugh tart. I make no secret of that fact.
The only reason my work seems to be eclectic up to a certain period is because I was a failure as an actor.
For any new technology there is always controversy and there always some fear associated with it. I think that's just the price of being first sometimes.
When I think about actors I know, I'd much rather hear about who they're shagging than what film they're doing next.
The truth is, I'd never seen a Cary Grant film. Since then I have watched his stuff and it's astounding, but I don't see any similarity between us. Except for the fact that I'm told he used to wear ladies' underwear, which is something I also do.
Plus, teaching brings home to you very fast that you actually know nothing. I didn't realize that before.
I had Courtney Love's left bosom out of her dress on my plate in front of me. It was extraordinary. I didn't know where to look.
Strangely enough I'm better on a stage. I love that I feel like I blossom in front of a whole bunch of people.
But I just know from experience that accent wise, even if you're an accent genius, crossing the Atlantic is the hardest thing in the world either way.
I was thinking on the plane yesterday how pathetic it is to be dreading the read-through after 25 films and 18 years of acting. I mean real terror.
Now, I quite like it. For years I sat in these interviews and everyone said, You're always Mister Nice Guy, why don't you ever play someone nasty?"

I don't think there's much point in putting me a deep, dark, heavy, emotional film because there are people who do it so much better than I do.
I think that's the whole point of Bridget Jones. It's all about that it's okay to fail.
I find it hard to understand why Scorsese has never called. You know, given the natural menace I bring to the screen.
And film acting is incredibly tedious, just by its nature. It's incredibly, mind numbingly slow.
And I particularly like the whole thing of being boss. Boss and employee... It's the slave quality that I find very alluring.
I don't have any particular burning desire to go back to being cuddly. Not really.
You know everyone loves to be the villain.
Neither Elizabeth or I are keen to do a real-life couple on the screen. It's not very electric.
Well, you know I have an office, my film offices. So I know that syndrome. I fancy offices, so there must be something wrong with me. Even the window cleaner intrigues me. It's a very sexy environment.
it was the same approach as the first one, which was just to make sure that it was as crap as we wanted it to be. The key is to stop the stunt coordinator from coming in to make it look like a film fight.
