I don't want people to know what I'm actually like. It's not good for an actor.

A star on a movies set is like a time bomb. That bomb has got to be defused so people can approach it without fear

Because you know, down deep in my heart, when all is said and done, I still live under the illusion that basically people think of me as an up-and-coming young actor.

Beer, it's the best damn drink in the world.

Acting is everybody's favorite second job.

The minute that you're not learning I believe you're dead.

What's beautiful is all that counts, pal. That's all that counts.

I hate giving advice, because people won't take it.

I'm Irish. I think about death all the time.
