(on winning the Best Actor Oscar) If you grow up in the suburbs of anywhere a dream like this seems kind of vaguely ludicrous and completely unattainable. But this moment is directly connected to those imaginings. And for anybody who's on the downside of advantage, and relying purely on courage, it's possible.
I'd move to Los Angeles if New Zealand and Australia were swallowed up by a tidal wave, if there was a bubonic plague in England and if the continent of Africa disappeared from some Martian attack.
I like villains because there's something so attractive about a committed person they have a plan, an ideology, no matter how twisted. They're motivated.
I really feel sorry for people who are, who divide their whole life up into 'things that I like' and 'things that I must do.' You're only here for a short time, mate. Learn to like it.

It is important to dress for success.
Music's always been a huge part of my life, and my first record came out in 1981.
