The recycling in my house was imposed by my kids.

Expectation is the mother of all frustration.

There are some movies that I would like to forget, for the rest of my life. But even those movies teach me things.

It was an honor and privilege to arrive to this country 16 years ago with almost no money in my pocket. A lot has happened since then.

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.

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

Making movies is difficult and you get disorientated sometimes - even when you're working with fantastic talent.

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 long to get back into theater.

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

I often feel very guilty because of the time that I spend outside of my home and the little time that sometimes I have for my kids.

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

One thing I have clear is that I don't want to work for money anymore.

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.

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.
