#Quote
1 I'm not prepared to be in bad films just to keep my foot in the door. So I'm reliant on a great part coming along. And the problem is, I want every role that Benicio Del Toro does, so I'm fucked until he wants to take a holiday.
2 [about acting] [...] I love to act and I find it very inspiring. And it was a case of waiting to find the right thing that I wanted to do and that wanted me.
3 I'm not in any way homophobic, but I just hung around that whole scene. I grew up in the center of London, and the best clubs were always the gay clubs. Quoted after rumors sparked that he was gay after an insinuation in Boy George's 1995 autobiography.
4 I know that sometimes we get accused of being a band that's successful on account of my average cheek bones. But it IS a good band. I'm not the most arrogant person in the world, but I'm going to start to be. I'm sort of sick of being misrepresented.
