Movie acting is about covering the machinery. Stage acting is about exposing the machinery. In cinema, you should think the actor is playing himself, if he's that good. It looks very easy. It should. But it's not, I assure you. To disappear your complete self into a character is quite difficult. I've tried it 85 times, and I've succeeded two or three times.
Anyone can write. But comedy, you've got to do some writing. You get one comedy script to every 20 dramas.
Alfie was the first time I was above the title; the first time I became a star in America.
When you reach the top, that's when the climb begins.
I wouldn't make an anti-American film. I'm one of the most pro-American foreigners I know. I love America and Americans.
Save your money. You're going to need twice as much money in your old age as you think.
I don't do it often, but I do cry. I also laugh a lot; people tell me I'm funny and I do like to laugh.
I'll always be there because I'm a skilled professional actor. Whether or not I've any talent is beside the point.
