Some quality performances and movies have a chance to be rewarded, but it's not like it's a bible.

Some suggestions for you :

I don't know how to drive a car.

When you know people are really at peace with who they are and what they do, they collaborate and want to help you to improve.

Sometimes I say to myself, what are you doing in this absurd job? Why don't you go to Africa and help people? But I cannot help people, because I am a hypochondriac.

I retired from rugby because I was old and getting really slow.

I am always saying, 'I don't believe in God; I believe in Al Pacino.' And that's true. If I ever get a phone call saying 'Would you like to work with Al Pacino?' I would go crazy.

Now, there are so many movies, so many festivals, and so many awards going on, each judged with each other, like your work is worse than others and that's not fair. How can you tell what's best and what's worst from these awards? We're talking about art.

The award is important in order to bring people to the movie theater. That's the only principle meaning of any award.

I think we are living in selfish times. I'm the first one to say that I'm the most selfish. We live in the so-called 'first world,' and we may be first in a lot of things like technology, but we are behind in empathy.

I'm a great believer in stunt doubles. They do an amazing job.

I can't imagine what it would be like being James Bond 24 hours. That must be exhausting.

My truth - what I believe - is that there are no answers here and, if you are looking for answers, you'd better choose the question carefully.

The bad news is that only the bad people reach the news because they are noisier.

Imagine the situation between Israel and Palestine. It's such a big mess. You can be on one side or the other. But what's clear is that there's an urgent need for a solution there and that's been dragging on for so long.

Everybody in Spain is sick of me. But in America, there's curiosity about the new kid on the block who doesn't speak English very well. The attention makes me feel vulnerable, which is something I hadn't felt in a while. But I like it.
