I want to act because I don't know how to do anything else.

I look at myself, and I see a Spanish person who's trying to be understood by an English-speaking audience and is putting a lot of energy into that, instead of into expressing himself freely and feeling comfortable.

I was raised not to be afraid to show emotion or imagination.

The award is important in order to bring people to the movie theater. That's the only principle meaning of any award.

Bond is the longest-running franchise ever and there's a reason for that: they are action movies but they are also touched by current events without being political or too serious.

The good thing about being an actor, and the gift of being an actor, is that you are beautifully forced to see the world with different eyes.

All of the good movies are based on how that story was told. And you cannot do it with a bad script, that's for sure, no matter who.

I got involved back then, 2010, because Penelope was shooting “Pirates 4” so I went to the set in Hawaii, a beautiful place, and Los Angeles it was, and London, and I was very envious. I was very jealous because I was seeing all this amazing production taking place, the water, the special effects, the boat, the sword fighting. I wanted to be one of those. So, I said to Jerry, Jerry please, give me a job.
