I do wear suits all the time.

I just like to keep challenging myself, keep it varied. It's a craft, and I'm constantly trying to learn and get better at it.

I want to go anywhere and everywhere and explore as much as I can.

I think I am more attracted to characters with a subtext, whatever that is and they don't necessarily have to be virtuous, but they have to at least be human.

I live in London and I love living in a gun free environment and long may it continue.

As I get older, I've been having a better and better time.

You're always dealing with emotions as an actor.

After drama school I did a seven-month tour of Europe performing in 'Romeo and Juliet.' I played Romeo.

The worst piece of advice I've gotten in my whole career is from somebody who said, 'Remember, it's all about likeability.'

I do get clocked. But it's not invasive to the point where it's upsetting. It doesn't encroach.

I don't think I've ever had a real fashion disaster.

I'm not the kind of actor who goes into exhaustive research for each role.

I am a big soccer fan, and a very big Liverpool fan.

For me really good acting is about subtext.

I'm sort of one of those weird actors who whenever I do a play, I think, 'Oh, we should film this,' as opposed to have to belt it out of ourselves in a theater auditorium.

Rudeness can make me angry.

I go off and make movies; I come home, and I'm a dad and I hang with my girls.

The idea of goodies and baddies has always fascinated me, and what people consider to be a goodie or a baddie, because I've never seen any of my characters as baddies.

I don't do facials or any of that stuff, but my workout regime does tend to depend on whether I have to take my top off in my next film because otherwise I know I'm too heavy.

I've done a number of things based on real people or true stories or based on books, and I'm a great believer that you have to be true to the script.

It's just lovely to be involved in a movie that does go back to the basics - characters and great writing.

Outside of being home with my family, I prefer a crowd.

I have a problem with a lot of men's fragrances because they are very strong. Somebody somewhere thinks that masculine means powerful smells, and I find them overbearing and not very pleasant.

I was not a very fearful kid, really.

I feel for those 19-year-olds who get thrust into the limelight that young.

For me, London is and always will be home.

I just love playing good guys.

I couldn't bear a marriage in which one partner hinges on the other.

I'm the git in the family.

My wife needs her freedom just like me.

I don't like it when people are trying too hard. That goes for clothes, for acting, for everything. It's just not good when it seems like you're making too much of an effort.

Parenthood and family come first for me, and when I'm not working I'm cool with the Teletubbies.

I'm not better than anyone else.

Ultimately, to have a career in movies, to a certain extent, certainly in England, you can't sustain a career in just English movies.

I've been very fortunate with the scripts I've had and the people I worked with.

I've had some great times with actresses, but that's in a movie.

I guess I'm not that metrosexual. My bathroom cabinet is hardly overflowing with products. I only really have my stuff for shaving. I can't honestly say I moisturise, though I probably should.

Audiences can be very judgmental.

I want to be in movies that stand the test of time.

I'm a huge fan of 'The Exorcist.'

I always want my options to be open.

Action scenes are not that different from other scenes.

There's certainly a huge element of luck in me ending up where I've ended up.

There's something to play if there's conflict going on. Whatever that conflict is, that's where drama is; if the character is grappling with something you've got something to play, there's layers to it.

You see these actresses who have had Botox or something else done, and it takes you out of the film.

I think it's dangerous to get into ideas of planning careers.

I think anybody who bets on horses and says they win is probably a liar.

I've got actor friends who didn't get breaks, who struggle and worry about things that I'm fortunate not to have to worry about.

A huge part of acting in movies is appetite. You do your best work when you've got a lot of appetite and you really want to embrace something. When you get tired, you don't have that hunger.
