Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!


#Quote
1Lets have a look at the clip.
2The best thing that happened to British culture was "Ecstasy" (MDMA), it essentially stopped all violence in pubs and clubs. Punches were replaced by hugs.
3Even though I'm an atheist now, I was brought up a Catholic and if you're a Catholic and you believe in God and the Bible, then Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) is like a documentary!
4[on Snow White and the Huntsman (2012) co-star, Kristen Stewart] She's fun on set. She's a fantastic actress. I think people forget she's fairly young still, but she's dedicated and she wants to do a good job. Often, I don't think people take that into consideration. She's doing 'Twilight' and stuff like that, but she's dedicated and she works hard. I mean, how old is she? Twenty-three, Twenty-four? I don't know that many twenty-three or twenty-four year-olds that get picked up at 4 am and work until 10 at night, six days a week. She comes on set smiling and laughing and she knows her lines.
5[on the science-fiction series Blakes 7 (1978)] Like Bergerac (1981) in space.
6[on the trials of playing weapons-expert "Mike Watt" in Spaced (1999)] I took a gun home to practice stripping it. A woman saw the barrel sticking out of my bag and called the police. I had gone home and it was a very hot day, so I opened the back door of my house and was sitting in a pair of skimpy shorts with a blindfold on, taking the gun to pieces. When I put it back and lifted the blindfold up, there were six or eight armed policemen holding firearms at me and they came in and started screaming - it was very tense.
7[on his character in Spaced (1999)] Mike is based on a couple of people I know, one is a friend called "Flea", who is mad on weapons and stuff and Russia and another is "Jon", an ex-security guard who also likes guns a bit too much. But for their military love they are both lovely blokes.
8[on his brief experience as a stand-up comedian] I did ten gigs at the very beginning. Five were amazing, and five were the worst moments of my life.
