I didn't want to do a zoo show. I didn't want to do a study of someone with mental illness. I just wanted to show someone who was trying to live their life.
I used to think the press was a necessary evil and now I don't think it is. I think it's something you choose.
You're creating new things in movies and people are going to steal them.
I'm obsessive enough about getting fit, it's ridiculous. I'm 40 now, and I've got to stop doing it soon. I have to start getting fat and old!
Although I'm not from London originally: I moved down here when I was 16, so it's played a part in my life. It's where I've lived for all that time.
You need to impress me, outwit me, compete with me? Go ahead, knock yourself out, I have no problem with that at all.
I can't go to war with paparazzi.
I had to have shoulder reconstruction.
I just think that the collective experience of going to see a film is something you can't recreate.
The idea of regretting not doing this seemed insane to me. Sitting in the corner at a bar at age 60, saying: 'I could've been Bond. Buy me a drink.' That's the saddest place I could be. At least now at 60 I can say: 'I was Bond. Now buy me a drink.'
You get used to the rejection and you don't take it personally.
The bad reviews get to me, believe me.
It's a Tim sandwich. The meat is fresh, but the bread is moldy.
Things need shaking up politically, culturally.
I've always loved to dress up a bit and show off.
If I wanted to make spy movies for the rest of my life, that would be one thing, but I don't want to just make spy movies.
Suits are looked at more now as a business thing which is kind of a shame. If you're not wearing it just for work, you should try and trick it up a bit.
The worst situation you can have in a thriller is a lead who looks like he can handle himself.
There's always going to be someone with a bigger toy than yours.
I can't really dress rock 'n' roll any more because I'm the wrong side of 40, but I want that to be the fashion.
