I am lucky, that is all. Lucky because there are a lot of people - producers, directors, people who buy tickets - who put confidence in me.

Some suggestions for you :

I love my country. And I would have to renounce my Spanish citizenship to become a U.S. Citizen.

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.

Expectation is the mother of all frustration.

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

I've done many different movies in many different contexts.

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.

I've always been an optimistic guy, to tell you the truth.

I completely take on the risk, the poker game, which being an artist means, and I'm going to try to make a film which honestly reflects what I have in my head.

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

Everything changes as you get older - your mind, your body, the way you view the world.

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.

Hollywood is a very strong machine that needs, and in... especially with female actors, fresh flesh. It's that cruel. But that's the way it is.

I wake up every morning, look in the mirror and ask, 'Am I a sex symbol?' Then I go back to bed again. It's stupid to think that way.

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