#Quote
1[on auditions] I just can't... I literally can't do it. It's just me looking uncomfortable, trying to put on an American accent... or sitting in the corner, making myself throw up and punching myself in the face.
2[on his sex scenes in Cosmopolis (2012)] None of them were supposed to be sex scenes and he (David Cronenberg) changed them all afterwards. I always find sex scenes are the most random thing to see in a movie. Two actors pretending to have sex. Why? It's so stupid.
3[on his role in The Rover (2014)] I'm so bad at auditioning and I was terrified that I wasn't going to get it. I've never worked so hard for an audition. I really, really fought for it. But once I got the job, I've never felt more free in a part. There were no constraints to it at all. The first thing I asked David (Michod) was, "Is Rey mentally handicapped?" And he said, "I don't know. Decide." It was really open.
4I'm just trying to not be in stupid gossip magazines, basically, and I think the best way to do it is never be photographed ever. As I get older, I just get more and more and more self-conscious about getting photographed. I don't know why. I've done it too many times and now I feel like everyone can see through me.
5[at 28 in 2014] I couldn't do another Twilight movie, I'm too old.
6[on his nickname 'R-Patz'] I would like to break the hands and mouth of the person who came up with it.
7[on Edward Cullen from the Twilight (2008) saga] You can tell he's just gonna freak out one day and shoot someone... He's one of those guys who would be like an ax murderer.
8I think as soon as you feel validated, you're a bad actor. You need to constantly feel like there's a 99% chance of failure; total failure; devastating failure. You should feel like every single job is a potential which you're never going to get one again.
9I like movies more than acting, and I like the idea of being in movies that I like so at least you're sort of contributing something.
10The world would be a much better place, I think, if all these bankers and billionaires were followed by paparazzi.
11[on performing in Cosmopolis (2012)] Before I did this movie I was fully intending on hiding for a couple of years, but this has really reinvigorated my ideas about acting. And I like being slightly on the fringe as well,rather than trying to get movies that are sort of vehicles.
12My dad and I were in a restaurant one day and noticed this group of pretty girls. The girls said they'd been to the local acting school. I never did any acting at school - I was quite shy - but after that day my dad nagged me about attending. He said he'd pay me, which is pretty strange, but I went.
13I was a bit of a loner at school. My first kiss was when I was 12, but I didn't have a girlfriend until I was 18.
14Y'know, there are so few auteurs left. The one thing that pisses me off about working in films is when you start a project and then, suddenly, two days before you start, there's a massive rewrite to make an R-rated movie into something that's PG-13, and it's a totally different story. As soon as that line's been crossed, you know you're not making a movie anymore. You're making a...a... fridge magnet. But with people like Cronenberg you know that, no matter what, there will be a movie at the end, and it will be solid and self-contained, and it's not made for any other reason than it being a movie.
15None of those associations came out and gave a statement [criticizing Kristen] without being called upon by the media first - who were doing it specifically to get hits on their websites. That whole system of Internet journalists, where no one is called to account, is almost entirely about hate. All these people get away with doing it because they have no responsibility to anyone. All they need is to get a salacious headline and people click on it, because it's easy. And it's quite good being part of these Twilight films because you have to give so many interviews all the time, you can defend yourself. That's the only way. All of us stick together, as well. There are so many little nerds behind their computers, on their little blogs.
16I went to one of these signing conventions in '06. It was one of the most interesting experiences I've had. It was so strange that people would pay for autographs. You keep thinking you should do a little dance for them as well or something.
17My old agent used to promote me as the male Keira Knightley. (Laughs) I thought: 'Well, what does that say about me exactly?' Do I pout a lot or something?
18When I was 14, I fronted a rap trio. Pretty hard-core for three private school kids from suburban London. And my mum's, like, cramping our style, popping her head in to ask, 'You boys want a sandwich?'
19Please don't give me all my luck now. Make it all stretch. I don't mind waiting. Make it stretch for 70 years.
20Sometimes I think, 'to hell with acting,' and then I realize I could be working at a shoe shop. Acting is much cooler.
21Everything has become more intense for six months, since 'Twilight' was released. It's hard to handle what's happening to me. I don't have the necessary hindsight, even if only to find a way out to this situation. But this celebrity thing, you can't fight it, it's useless, you can't avoid it. When it's not something you desired during your whole life, or something you don't aspire to, you're free not to care about it. I didn't sign for Disney. There's not a stipulation which forces me to smile to the paparazzi.
22Twilight (2008) is a metaphor for the virtues of chastity, but it's had the opposite effect. I get letters that say "I'm going to kill myself if you don't watch High School Musical 2 (2007) with me". It's a little nuts.
23I wasn't at all focused on school, and I didn't achieve much. But I've got a sense of urgency now. I feel I can't let any more time waste away.
24I didn't want to get stuck in pretty, public school roles, or I knew I'd end up as some sort of caricature. Playing Dali has been a complete turning point for me. It's the first part I've had that has required really serious thought. I became completely obsessed with Dali during the filming, and I read every biography I could get a hold of. He was the most bizarre, complex man, but in the end I felt I could relate to him. He was basically incredibly shy.
25My favorite teacher was probably my English teacher because she got me into writing instead of just answering the question. I used to hand in homework with 20 pages of nonsense and she'd still mark it. She was a really amazing teacher.
26I have been playing the piano for my entire life - since I was three or four. And the guitar - I used to play classical guitar from when I was about five to 12 years of age. Then I didn't play guitar for like years. About four or five years ago, I got out the guitar again and just started playing blues and stuff. I am not very good at the guitar, but I am all right. I am in a band in London as well.
27I went to one of these signing conventions. [in '06] It was one of the most interesting experiences I've had. It was so strange that people would pay for autographs. You keep thinking you should do a little dance for them as well or something.
28The day before [the Harry Potter London premiere] I was just sitting in Leicester Square, happily being ignored by everyone. Then suddenly strangers are screaming your name. Amazing.
29I aspire to be Jack Nicholson. I love his every single mannerism. I used to try and be him in virtually everything I did, I don't know why. I watched One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) when I was about 13, and I dressed like him. I tried to do his accent. I did everything like him. I think it kind of stuck with me.
30They [Barnes Theatre Club] were a very good group, and for some reason when I finished the backstage thing, I just decided to that I should try to act. So I auditioned for Guys and Dolls and got a little tiny part as some Cuban dancer or something and then in the next play I got the lead part, and then I got my agent. So I owe everything to that little club.
31It's strange, somebody asked for my autograph the other day. Because I finished school and I'm not really doing anything at the moment, I was just kind of aimlessly wandering around London and these two guys who were about 30 came up and asked for my autograph. I was really quite proud at the time, and they wanted to take photos and stuff. And then they were sort of wandering around and I was kind of wandering around and I bumped into them about three times, and every single time their respect for me kept growing and growing and growing.
32Up until I was 12 my sisters used to dress me up as a girl and introduce me as 'Claudia'! Twelve was a turning point as I moved to a mixed school and then I became cool and discovered hair gel.
