Some suggestions for you :

I suppose that I am ambitious.

I wouldn't want my daughters to date a guy like me. I was dangerous around women in my twenties. I'm terrified that they might end up with someone like me.

I divide my time badly.

I always feel that art in general and acting in particular should make the audience a little uncomfortable, to slap them and wake them up.

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 think Shrek makes an effect in older people. And there are many things in the movie that you saw that are not for kids. Kids would not understand certain things.

I try to teach my kids to be open.

I'm a complete hypochondriac. If my heart starts beating a little faster than normal, I think I'm having an attack.

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

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.

Listen, I think movies serve many different purposes, from those movies that are frivolous and just an entertainment, to movies that just go to exploring the complexities of the human soul. Everything is valid if it's done with honesty and dignity, and I actually do both of those types of movies in my career.

When I do a political movie, I do a political movie.

I think that comedy is one of the more serious things that you can do in our day, especially in the world that we're living in.

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