Some suggestions for you :

I've never liked watching real-life couples play couples onscreen or onstage. It takes me out of the story.

I always feel that art in general and acting in particular should make the audience a little uncomfortable, to slap them and wake them up.

I completely take on the risk, the poker game, which being an artist means, and I'm going to try to make a film which honestly reflects what I have in my head.

Always when you go to a new country and they teach you bad words, you just say them without knowing the value and people look at you because you didn't know that value of them.

I couldn't be with someone who is depressed all the time.

When you work in a different language you are not so attached to the words.

I'm not such a big star. I am just a little planet. In Spain, people don't put so much attention on the star system. But here in America, I can feel it. Mostly, people are very, very nice. But there are also a bunch of fanatics behind the stars.

We're living in hard times.

Up until the time I was 31 years old, in Spain, I still didn't know how I was going to pay the rent.

The only time you actually are a spectator of your own work is the day you read the script.

We are now integrated into American society and I don't like the word fashionable, because fashionable means that it's going to pass. It's not like that anymore.

When I do a political movie, I do a political movie.

I get caught up in my bubble of reading, writing, or music.

There's something happening in the world that didn't happen before. We are acting like one big brain.
