No, I don't get obsessed with acting. Because in the past when I have got obsessed about it, it really got in the way of the creative process. I've learned to hang the character on the coat-peg at the end of the day, and when I leave in the morning I pick it up again. And I had to work at that because the other way lies a strange sort of madness.

I do believe at the end of the night when you're with your family, the character gets hung up on the door like a coat, and is there to be taken on the next morning.

Acting with creatures that aren't there is kind like acting with an actor who refuses to come out of his trailer. You still have to go on and do the scene.

Why would anyone ever tell anything personal to a journalist?

I try to stay fit. I try and do something every day but I don't jog. My body hates jogging.

I always wanted to be a cowboy, and Jedi Knights are basically cowboys in space, right?

I love doing my own stunts but it's hard.

When I see great boxers, it's like reading a wonderful poem.
