Some suggestions for you :

What makes Shakespeare eternal is his grasp of psychology. He knew how to nail stuff about us as human beings.

Whenever someone says to my mum: 'How's your son doing?' she says: 'Which one?' If you're a parent, you're not going to go: 'Oh I'll concentrate on the famous one.'

Trouble is, some accents lend themselves to comedy.

I don't think anyone looks into their family tree and expects it to come up smelling of roses.

I could say, 'I want to play a French-African humpback,' but I probably won't get that role.

I don't get cast as the guy who steps off a yacht in a white linen suit with a martini.

It would be a shame for me if I were to become 'Mr. Half-Hour Sitcom.'

I love home. I'd rather be at home than anywhere else.

We all know that people who've never been on a film set think it's way more glamorous than the people who work on them.

Comedy can't be about continuous success.

I don't write anything off without reading a script, and if it's a good one, I'll consider it, whether it's for $20 or a million dollars.

As soon as you get two actors in a room and they're locking eyes, they're doing a scene.

On the surface, you think you wouldn't have to think at all about being asked to play Bilbo in 'The Hobbit.' It's not prison; it's a good gig. But you know it's going to take a long time, and it does. There are times when you thought: 'Gee, I've not seen my house for months.'

My mum was Labour-voting, but wanted us to know we were important. Basically, everyone's equal, but you, my children, are a bit better.
