Face it, I didn't become famous until I took my clothes off.
I've never been a fan of just doing. I like to do things for a reason.
I don't consider myself any great sage of fashion or style, whatever people may want to think.
I was an optimist, a great champion of the human spirit. And I lost that for a time. I feel like I've regained a bit of that in the last few years but there was a period of my life in which I had a very low opinion of people in general.
I don't want to do anything that I'm not passionate about.
You can't spend your life apologizing.
I think it's a bigger risk following a part that plays up your looks than it is to try and carve out a career as an actor.
I'm not Tom Cruise. Very few British actors are. If you look at the body of work I've done it's pretty obvious I'm not going to make a 'Mission: Impossible.'
