I am able to play monsters well. Being a smoker is like being trapped in a complicated maze. It's as if Allen Carr has a plan of the maze.
The Dynamic Scooby-Doo Affair
Instantly I was freed from my addiction. Acting is still enjoyable, but there are no more challenges any more for me. No, none at all. I'm much more interested in painting and composing music these days. I've become what I always wanted to be, a jobbing actor. I'm just detached, I do my thing. I work hard at it, but I don't invest my life in it.
As long as they pay me on time and I get a good script with a good director, I have fun. He has impressed me.
He asked me if I wanted to accompany him on a trip to Brazil, and so off I went. I'd met the President before in Washington, a very nice guy. So we were at this dinner, talking after his gig, he gave this incredible speech and he said, "Would you like to come to Brazil with me next week?
Of course I said, "Yes". He's pretty exhausting to be with, because he's always wanting to play cards or golf.
Heroes, like Bogart Humphrey Bogart. They deserve high definition. I think the first British actor who really worked well in cinema was Albert Finney. He was a back-street Marlon Brando.
He brought a great wittiness and power to the screen. The best actor we've had. I've done some good films. The Remains of the Day was alright. The Silence of the Lambs Nixon I enjoyed. That was fun and seems to be quite popular.
It is wonderful to have reached that point where I can do what grabs my attention, when I want to. I'm glad those days are gone where I was yearning for work.
People think I've worked a lot, but I haven't. I've had a lot of time off. I've turned down a lot. When you're younger you want to get every part to stop other people getting it. Nowadays, I don't care - let them do it. I don't go through that terrible thing of thinking, "If I don't do it, then who's going to get to do it? He's very rude to people. He insults people - he insults me - but you just have to give it back. He says to me, "Oh, you're getting old.
You're getting bald, too. You've aged, you're getting balder. Actually, you look older than me, Oliver. It's no good dying your hair like that. He's a very talented man. He can be a bit exhausting. I did about 18 hours on Alexander I never saw it. I understand it wasn't very good. I did 18 hours one night out in Borehamwood and thought, "No, that's it. I wrote him a letter to apologise for my bad behaviour on that film. I was terribly behaved and very rebellious.
He wanted to do too many takes and I couldn't do it. And he was a little remote and I could never understand what he was talking about which made me very irritable.
I haven't seen him for years but he's a smart man, a very daring figure. I like David very much. My own father was a tough man. He was a pretty red hot guy but he was also cold. He was also slightly disappointed in me because I was not a good kid as a school boy, you know. But I learned from it, I liked that coldness, because it was harsh. And he taught me to be tough. So I know how to be tough.
I know how to be strong. I know how to be ruthless. It's part of my nature. I wouldn't be an actor if I wasn't. It's fun to get the Oscar, it was fun to get a knighthood. But you know, you wake up in the morning, the reality's still there. The movie industry is full of crazy people who think that they are God.
How do you play Hannibal Lecter? Well just don't move. Scare people by being still. I'd been to the dentist, and I was seven years old, to have a tooth taken out.
In those days they yanked it out. I was feeling nauseous and I hallucinated. I was in bed and I remember waking up with a knock at the door - a box was put in my bedroom. And it was full of encyclopedias, which my father had got me. I remember looking through those books and finding a knowledge. I learned everything I could.
For many, many years I felt like I didn't belong. I was a duffer at school - everything was incomprehensible to me. I was an only child. My mother married into a family of in-laws. She felt like an outsider; which she was. She was a powerful force in my father's life.
He was a baker - and she was ambitious for him. She didn't want him to be subservient to his father. She woke him up. I married a remarkable woman who has changed a lot of my perception about myself and about life.
She's very positive, very powerful. Every time I get a negative thought, she says, 'Cancel it'. Once you accept the fact that there's nothing to fear, you drill into the primal oil well. I believe when we do things without fear, we can do anything. As long as you don't worry about the consequences. Burton was taking over the role from Hopkins, who asked to see him backstage: You come from Taibach'.
That's the only time I met him again. It's nice to get a knighthood but in the end it's just the same old face in the mirror getting older and older - you have to shave every morning and you look at your face and think: And there's a wonderful harsh reality about that.
Time is going by. I better get on with it. I became an actor but I still don't feel that I'm a part of this profession.
I never have - 50 years I've been doing it. Woody says 'Okay, you come in through the door - let's rehearse it. So we shoot it. It's like Jewish humour. We live in such a precious, pussyfooting society - everyone takes offence so quickly. Well, you know you never actually fess up to everything - you try to cover your ground, cover your tracks - you want to sound interesting.
Living here [in Los Angeles] - all men must cry. Well, I don't think we're wired that way. I think it's okay to express emotions and grief, but to make a habit of it, this endless psychobabble in our culture - everyone goes on The Oprah Winfrey Show and Dr. Phil - it makes me want to throw up. I mean, come on! When I break with a friend it is sudden. I will give no warning ahead of time, just change my address and telephone number.
They may be confused - but they'll survive. I was told years ago that I suffer from 'terminal reasonableness'. From that point on I thought that was something to work on. Not to become a son of a bitch, but to say no. Now, after all these years, I can say: I can say that with passion.
There's an epitaph on my mother's grave - I brought her over years ago and she's buried up in the Hollywood Hills - from a poem written in by Ernest Dowson: I'm not getting the parts I was 20 years ago - but I'm still doing okay. The prospect of that blank wall where there's no more work - it doesn't fill me with dread. I sometimes wake at night and I can hear the sea and I think: How did I get here? I say 'tough titty.
That's what I'm aware of today. The powerful spirit in me. I will not be taken for a fool any more. I may sound to you like a really hard man - I am not ashamed of it at all.
I'm not hard, I'm honest. So if they say they want me I will go ahead and do it, learn my lines. You know, do what I do. So it's the best time of my life now. Beware the tyranny of the weak. They just suck you dry.
I go, "How are you doing? I know a number of people like that, but I can't waste my time on them. Over the years I worked with a couple of younger actors who reminded me of myself. I like bad boys. I worked with Russell Crowe in Australia before he became a star. Russell is a bad boy. I think he is terrific. Richard Burton was a bad boy, but he shook the rafters of the world. I think it is good to be bad - I was bad all my life.
I had some bizarre nights with Peter when we made The Lion in Winterbut to be honest I don't remember them.Meet the Parents (4/11) Best Movie Quote - Polygraph Test (2000)
He enjoyed his drink - and I did, too. We weren't close friends or anything but we got drunk very quickly and there was always amusement and laughter. I love drunks; they are terrific - except when they throw up on you. I hated the Sixties.
It was one long wet Wednesday afternoon in the Waterloo Road. For most of it I was drinking myself into oblivion. We like to look into the dark side of ourselves and I think that causes us great fascination and fear.
That's why people like Hannibal Lecter. He was a man caught in a monstrous mind. I've got no problem if people want to spend hours beforehand preparing before they come on-set, as long as they don't keep you waiting.
And I've read Stanislavski and did the Method myself, and all that, but now I've simplified it: He had tremendous drive, and ambition, and was a real force.
Henry Cavill - IMDb
A very nice guy and a titanic talent. His sort of talent has, in the eyes of cynics, become rather unfashionable. There are people who knock Olivier quite often, but not a single one of them could ever touch him in terms of talent. I thought he was an extraordinary man. I really wanted to show what a true monster he is. He's a dangerous man, not Mr. This isn't a franchise, like Raiders of the Lost Ark This is a dangerous man, who's better off in jail.
So that's the premise we went with. I'm not good at being cooped up with anyone for very long. Maybe that's why I wasn't designed for marriage.
I'm not good at any kind of relationship with people, really. I mean, I've had a number of good ones, but I get restless and I take off. He can charm a lot of people. He's a good man. I haven't seen him for a long time. I just want to say 'Accept your award. Say "thank you," and get off! There are surgeons and nurses and teachers, people out there who really deserve awards. Knox is mildly interested in her, but then grows even moreso when she tells of her interest in trying to find out who Batman is.
Knowing that Commissioner Gordon has a file on this vigilante, Knox intends to get into a charity benefit at Millionaire Bruce Wayne's mansion, where Gordon will be attending. Vale also decides to accompany him. Meanwhile, Crime Boss Carl Grissom is angered at the persistence of Harvey Dent, figuring that the new District Attorney could find out about their connection to the Axis Chemicals plant.
One of Carl's men, Jack Napier, nonchalantly suggests they break in and steal the files that could incriminate them. Carl takes to this idea, and recommends that Jack is the man for the job. Jack is reluctant, but Carl insists, calling him his "number one guy. Vicki, meanwhile, meets up with Bruce Wayne, who seems a little shy. Bruce eventually excuses himself when his butler Alfred requests his presence.
In a secret command center, Bruce reviews video footage of the party, and catches Gordon talking to an associate, who has received a tip that Jack Napier is going to Axis Chemicals to 'clean it out. At Axis Chemicals, Napier's men find the plant's safe Suspecting a setup, Jack cautions his men to watch out.
Shortly thereafter, they are ambushed by Eckhardt and his officers. Gordon shows up shortly after the gunfire, and demands that Jack Napier be taken alive. During the chase, Batman eventually corners Napier, and catches him just before he falls into a vat of chemicals. However, Batman lets go, and Jack falls in. Gordon sees Batman, and orders him to halt, but the Caped Crusader gets away. Gordon then instructs his men not to mention what they saw. The next day, Napier's death is ruled as a suicide, but Knox suspects that Batman ended up taking care of Grissom's man.
Knox asks Vicki to help him further investigate the case, but she blows him off, saying she has a date with Bruce Wayne.
Meanwhile, Jack Napier has managed to survive, and makes his way to a seedy doctor to have his face repaired. However, the chemicals he fell into have permanently bleached his skin white, and turned his hair green. As well, his face seems frozen in a permanent grin. Jack then returns to Grissom's penthouse, having concluded that he had Eckhardt tip off the Police, and that Carl set him up to die. Revealing his newly-changed face, Jack claims to now be The Joker, and kills Grissom. Meanwhile, Vicki and Bruce share a rather quiet evening in Wayne Manor.
While Vicki is rather intrigued by Bruce, she finds that the large Manor does not seem to reflect much on him.
When she invites him to an outing, he declines, saying he has to leave town for certain reasons. Back in the criminal underworld, the Joker claims that Grissom has gone away for awhile, and has left him in charge, Claiming to oversee all of Grissom's affairs, the other crime bosses are not convinced, and still fail to acknowledge this, even when the Joker electrocutes one of their own.
Meanwhile, Vicki grows curious about Bruce, and follows him as he leaves his mansion. Though he said he was leaving town, she finds him staying close to Gotham. Following from a distance, Vicki sees him walk into an alley, and lay two roses on the pavement. She soon after calls Knox, asking to find any information regarding the street location. Eventually, one of the crime lords attempts to go public, holding a press conference saying that Grissom has left him and his associates not including the Joker control of Grissom's Empire.
It is then that the Joker appears, and stabs the crime lord in the throat, before driving off. During the press conference, the joker dispatched one of his men known as Bob, to snap pictures of people there.
One of them is of Vicki Vale, whom the Joker soon grows infatuated with. Also of interest to the Joker is the Axis Chemicals plant. Using an unknown to the viewer combination of chemicals, the Joker creates a chemical known as 'Smilex. Because of this, the public stops using any form of beauty and hygiene products, as so far, noone knows what is causing this. When she gets there, she finds a table reserved, and receives a gift box containing a gas mask.
Within seconds, the museum begins filling with sleeping gas. Vicki puts on the mask, only to see the Joker flesh-tone makeup covering his white complexion enter, and vandalize the art pieces before sitting at her table. It soon becomes apparent that the invitation was sent by him, for a rather twisted romantic evening for two for them. Suddenly, Batman swoops in through the skylight, and makes off with Vale. The Joker's goons give chase, following the Batmobile through Gotham.
When traffic blocks their way, Batman and Vicki get out and run away on foot. Batman eventually distracts the goons, while Vicki finds a hiding place. During his confrontation, a couple bullets hit Batman's chest and he goes down. As the goons examine the body, one begins to remove the Batman's mask.
