Some suggestions for you :

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've never worried about what audiences would accept or had a game plan regarding the career. I never had an idea of how I should look to my fans or anybody else.

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

I used to be scared of women. When I was very young they terrified me, but discovering the female universe was incredible and still is to this day, as you never stop learning about them.

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

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

If bad things are going to be said about me, I have to bear that. If I don't understand that it's part of being in show business, then I'd better go work in a bank.

I have to recognize that I am agnostic.

It's a character that I always found really likable. I'm fond of Zorro because he was a popular figure who worked for the people.

You have to work with people you really love.

Expectation is the mother of all frustration.

I don't think there is a guy that played more gay characters than I have done in my life.

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

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