Personal Quotes (2)

[on "the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel'] Old people not really doing old things and not really doing young things, but just being - I thought that was lovely. As I get older, I find things that I thought would be sorted by now aren't. The idea of writing stuff like that for a much older generation was incredibly appealing.
[on working with Maggie Smith] The greatest moment of all was her on set. She said, 'Would you mind if you change the order of the phrase?' Maggie Smith asking me if I could change a line, asking politely, using my name! 'That one' she calls people. She rules. She literally and figuratively rules. We are all her slaves.
