Basically, my life is so boring, it's embarrassing.
Women are frightening. If you get to 41 as a man, you're quite battle - scarred.
I just don't believe in love at first sight any more, even though I've based my whole career on the concept. In my experience, power, money and influence always attract the opposite sex. It's something that I've always exploited - with good results.
I don't think there's much point in putting me a deep, dark, heavy, emotional movies because there are people who do it so much better than I do.
At home, I hardly ever leave London. I don't like the countryside in England.
I think that's the whole point of Bridget Jones. It's all about that it's okay to fail.
Japanese women have always loved my films, even when no one else did. Ever since I made 'Maurice' in the 1980s, I've been getting hundreds of letter from Japanese girls. They definitely have a special place in my heart.
I'm very unrelaxed doing a newspaper interview.
