I think you have to be very secure as an actor to escape yourself – to revisit someone’s past, whether you’re portraying another person or creating someone, and then to come back to who you are and not bring those emotions with you.
Parties don’t thrill me. I like sitting at home with a tub of Chunky Monkey ice cream watching “Big Brother” (2000/II) or “Friends” (1994).
“I want to have lots of bodyguards around me and be surrounded by beautiful women while watching my brother play at Wimbledon.”
“Being an actor in L.A. is like being in prison: you go, you serve your time, you try to replicate Johnny Depp’s career-and then you move to Paris.”
“L.A. is growing on me a little bit, but it’s still a shit-hole. I think it’s this insidious pool where nearly everyone lives in fear. Geographically it’s fantastic: in a half hour, you can be on the beach in one direction, go snowboarding in another, or go out into the desert. But socially it’s disgusting. I wish they’d just run all the cunts out.”
“You hear a lot of people say they want to make art in this industry, but so few people actually fucking do it. I was disillusioned by Hollywood at the time, but now I’ve come to accept that’s just the way things are: it’s called show business, not show art.”
“I don’t go out, I don’t drink, and I don’t do drugs.”
“I think my Wikipedia (page) is full of bullshit because I actually don’t have anything cool or interesting to be said about me. I’ve heard I’m called a bad boy, or difficult-maybe that’s because I don’t take any bullshit.”
