Revenge doesn't stop.

Now, product placement, whichever way you look at it, whether you like it or you think it's disgusting, or whatever, it's what it is.

I've got to be high class... Which is sad, because I like bars.

I know what I like in other actors: truth. That's the best. It makes you say, 'OK, I'll go with you on this.'

The idea of regretting not doing this seemed insane to me. Sitting in the corner at a bar at age 60, saying: 'I could've been Bond. Buy me a drink.' That's the saddest place I could be. At least now at 60 I can say: 'I was Bond. Now buy me a drink.'

Any voices or fantasies, he lives with. Those are his everyday life things.

I can't go to war with paparazzi.

Good scripts are hard to find.

Intimate scenes on a movie set are just dry, bizarre things; people standing around.

The genuine truth, and I do think about this a lot, is that I'm one of the least competitive people you'll ever meet. Except with myself.

I'm obsessive enough about getting fit, it's ridiculous. I'm 40 now, and I've got to stop doing it soon. I have to start getting fat and old!

I can't really dress rock 'n' roll any more because I'm the wrong side of 40, but I want that to be the fashion.

There's more than one way to sense violence.

I never really had a strong accent.

I like going to the gym every day because I'm in physiotherapy every day.

I always wanted to make movies.

It's a huge challenge, a huge responsibility. Bond is a huge iconic figure in movie history. These opportunities don't come along very often so I thought, 'Why not?'

You need to impress me, outwit me, compete with me? Go ahead, knock yourself out, I have no problem with that at all.

I've always retained my privacy, but now I protect it even more.

I just wanted to play a cowboy for a long time.

Even the worst Bond movies, there's something to love about them.

I've always loved to dress up a bit and show off.

I just felt that you can't have a character fall in love so madly as they did in the last movie and not finish it off, understand it, get some closure. That's why the movie is called 'Quantum of Solace' - that's exactly what he's looking for.

I've always reverted to a sense of childhood, just in everyday life.

The worst situation you can have in a thriller is a lead who looks like he can handle himself.

I'm definitely not satisfied about my career. I don't know how you can be, it's the very nature of things.

I don't care about how much other actors get.

I don't say: 'can't do that', 'won't do that'. I've never thought in that way about work.

I'm not trying to be macho, I promise you.

I used to think the press was a necessary evil and now I don't think it is. I think it's something you choose.

I just think that the collective experience of going to see a film is something you can't recreate.

I stopped worrying about being desired a long time ago.

I'm a really bad liar.

There's a conscious decision to everything I do.

I had to have shoulder reconstruction.

I've been very lucky.

It's a Tim sandwich. The meat is fresh, but the bread is moldy.

I've never really had a desire to do Shakespeare. For me, it's just too many lines.

You get used to the rejection and you don't take it personally.

It's not like I go out there to be a sex symbol. I mean, it's nice of course - but embarrassing.

When you read a novel, your own imagery is the most important. It's what makes reading such a wonderful thing.

It's not like I was trying to be sexy but I had to get fit because I had to be able to do stunts. Also I wanted that, if Bond took his clothes off, he looked like a man who did what he did, which was kill people for a living. I thought the only way to do that was to work out and get fit and buff and get physically into shape.

I think there's a lot to be said for keeping your own counsel.

I have to be myself.

You've got to live your life, you've got to enjoy it.

Being on your own would be sad, sick and weird. I don't trust myself. I need that balance.

I find it very easy playing Bond. I think he's hilarious. He gets himself into some extraordinarily funny situations.

I take stuff because I'm inspired by it.

Sexiness, particularly in movies, is the chess game in the 'Thomas Crown Affair'. It's, it's, I don't know, but Faye Dunaway comes up a lot in that thinking. It's the subtlety of sexiness. The moment you try to be sexy, then it's not.
