Some suggestions for you :

I don't think there is a guy that played more gay characters than I have done in my life.

I mean, the Constitution of this country was written 200 years ago. The house I was living in in Madrid is 350 years old! America is still a project, and you guys are working on it and bringing new things to it every day. That is beautiful to watch.

Whatever happens in my life from now on, I know the day I finally die - the final act of my script - people will always make references to the work I've done with Almodovar.

The man who doesn't want anything is invincible.

I have a fantastic studio in my home, and it's my biggest toy. I have about a half a million dollars worth of musical equipment in my house.

I cry a lot, you know. Which is very difficult for a man to recognise, but I do. I cry in movies, you know, just watching movies.

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

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

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

It's a character that I always found really likable. I'm fond of Zorro because he was a popular figure who worked for the people.

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

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

As an actor, when you encounter a psychopathic personality, you naturally want to make him 'bigger than life,' as the Americans say.

I don't like to over-intellectualize scenes that are working. I tend to think when you do that you may lose it.
