Some suggestions for you :

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

Awards were made in Hollywood, in whatever the time it was created. They're to promote each other's movies. You give me an award, I give you an award and people will believe that we are great movies and they'll go to see them. It's still the same.

I don't know how to drive a car.

I'm happily married.

I've always said that playing rugby in Spain is like being a bullfighter in Japan.
