I think I am more attracted to characters with a subtext, whatever that is and they don't necessarily have to be virtuous, but they have to at least be human.

One of the things I'm most proud of about my career is the fact I've managed to keep options open.

You go back to those films of the '40s and '50s and hear the dialogue, the way the people played off each other, the wordplay. I think we've really lost that in movies.

I just like to keep challenging myself, keep it varied. It's a craft, and I'm constantly trying to learn and get better at it.

I'm not the kind of actor who goes into exhaustive research for each role.

I never really look at life and worry about missed opportunities.

I think it's dangerous to get into ideas of planning careers.

I live in London and I love living in a gun free environment and long may it continue.

I do wear suits all the time.

I certainly don't think of myself as an action hero.
