I'm not afraid of death, but I resent it. I think it's unfair and irritating.
I'm not afraid of death, but I resent it. I think it's unfair and irritating. Every time I see something beautiful, I not only want to return to it, but it makes me want to see other beautiful things. I know I'm not going to get to all the places I want to go.
As a kid I read Jules Verne, H. G. Wells, and a few others. As an adult have admired Leonardo da Vinci's drawings and notebooks.
I'm just looking as always for something that's stimulating and I hope to find a good story that's a challenge, whether it's big or small. Or that it finds me. I don't have like a career plan. Maybe I should, but I don't.
Adult characters are all the things they've encountered over time. But kids haven't accumulated all the life experience, all the regrets. They tend to be more in the moment, more willing to play, to be joyful.
Life is short and the older you get, the more you feel it. Indeed, the shorter it is.
Life is short and the older you get, the more you feel it. Indeed, the shorter it is. People lose their capacity to walk, run, travel, think, and experience life. I realise how important it is to use the time I have.
In terms of the movie business, being in a 'Lord of the Rings' has given me more interesting options as work.
I know people who prepare their roles in such a way that they technically look ahead and memorize their gestures, and then they stick to it. Those that are technically proficient enough can make it seem natural, but they do that and don't really take in what other people are doing.
I have no idea what 'method actor' means.
Be kind. It's worthwhile to make an effort to learn about other people and figure out what you might have in common with them. If you allow yourself to be somewhat curious - and if you get into the habit of doing that - it's the first step to being open minded and realizing that your points of view aren't totally opposite.
I have a multicultural background, so I tend to have an open mind about things, and I find other cultures interesting.
There's no excuse to be bored. Sad, yes. Angry, yes. Depressed, yes. Crazy, yes. But there's no excuse for boredom, ever.
When you're under stress as a human being, you behave oddly and your relationships with people become strained.
In a lot of ways, I envy someone like Omar Sharif who lived in a hotel for decades.
When I make a movie, I don't break it down and analyze it. I could but it would get in the way of doing a job - on instinct based on all the research we did going in. you want to trust yourself and your director and your acting partners in the circumstances you're shooting. I don't like to have any kind of overview.
People like to pigeonhole you. It's easier.
Saying you are a patriot does not make you one; wearing a flag pin does not in itself mean anything at all.
If you're trying to please everyone, then you're not going to make anything that is honestly yours, I don't think, in the long run.
It's just like with people. You're going to get along better working with them - human or equine - if you ask politely rather than demand that they do things.
