Personal Quotes (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.
[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.
[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.
[on the science-fiction series Blake's 7 (1978)] Like Bergerac (1981) in space.
[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.
Even 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!
The best thing that happened to British culture was "Ecstasy" (MDMA), it essentially stopped all violence in pubs and clubs. Punches were replaced by hugs.
Lets have a look at the clip.
