I wanted to do as much of the action work as I could, so that the audience can see it's me and it's real. I feel like I became a sportsman of sorts, and that meant acquiring injuries and carrying on and bashing through to the next level of pain. Although the stunt team did fantastic work to make sure that everything was as safe as possible, if you don't get bruised playing Bond, you're not doing it properly. I had black eyes, I had cuts, I was bruised, I had muscle strains, and I took a lot of painkillers. But it was part of the job. As much as I was hurt, the stuntmen were in much more pain.
I go through life thinking it's all going to end tomorrow.
I find it very easy playing Bond. I think he's hilarious. He gets himself into some extraordinarily funny situations.
You get used to the rejection and you don't take it personally.
I've always retained my privacy, but now I protect it even more.
I just wanted to play a cowboy for a long time.
I don't care about how much other actors get.
I take stuff because I'm inspired by it.
