I never went to acting school. I started in the circus, music hall, I was in a group, did kids' bits. I've always had this kind of insecurity being uneducated. ---->>>

I was concerned about doing the right thing when I was a kid. I suppose as a child, you're a massive egomaniac, and you think that everything you do is going to affect the world. ---->>>

I'm entirely uneducated. I went to public school - public in the American sense - a blue-collar, working-class school. I never got a scholarship, I left when I was 15, never did any exams. ---->>>

Not being anxious requires a level of humility, doesn't it? It does, I think. It's not all about you. ---->>>

I was a closet straight. I think I wanted to be gay because I thought it was arty and interesting. And also, I was phenomenally shy with girls. ---->>>

I don't plan. I don't think, 'I have to do this kind of part 'cause I've done that kind of part.' I'm not a very good planner. ---->>>

I drifted into acting, and I've drifted into my career, and I've never been guided by anything particularly concrete. ---->>>

I just think the older I get, actually, the better I feel. ---->>>

I'm crap at interviews. I'm just not very good at sentences. ---->>>

The amount of work you need to do to become a very successful celebrity is something I'm not prepared to do. ---->>>

I kind of always wanted to act, but to get a grant I would have needed two A-levels, and I was too far away from even O levels. I didn't know you could get a scholarship, so I determined early not to pursue that. ---->>>

It's just very dull. Talking about yourself and about something that you've got less interest in than you had, because you've always moved on to something else. ---->>>

The urge to act became the overriding force in my life. It thrilled me. There's a moment with acting when you're in the groove, and you and what you're trying to do are seamlessly one. That happens sometimes, and I'm really happy it can happen to me. ---->>>
