I was angry but not at God. I feel that you are closer to God when you are messed up. Definitely. That's when you most need God, and God cannot control what man does.
Youve got all these books on self help, getting to know yourself, doing the right thing, eating the so-called right foods, even down to what books you have on your shelves. People are encouraged to look to themselves first as opposed to being a part of society.
I thrive on constant stimulation artistically, whether it's listening to music, seeing art, or whatever. I try to inspire myself because the urban world and politics are quite draining.
I just get really defensive as soon as anyone comes near my personal life. I made a decision early on that it's strictly off-limits. No exceptions.
You get very possessive about characters, you feel you can see it in your mind and you want to play it.
I think anybody who has been abused as a kid - and I was abused as a kid, by various people - will say it's irrational because violence is irrational.
Everyone wants to look their best, everyone has dreams of wanting to look like something else. But we are who we are.
I'll never get a part in a huge action blockbuster.
I could be equally happy on a film set or in the middle of a field.
People need to know that you're versatile, otherwise you don't get the opportunities.
I don't get the point in a lot of biopics, they're boring. You know what's gonna happen. You're just watching actors show off.
What shocks me is that so many people leave care and become homeless, and when you're homeless you get into crime, prostitution and drugs, and it is a vicious circle. That's what we need to change
It's not about the money with me.

I want to prove that you don't have to come from Oxford University or Rada - and you don't have to have parents that support you - to succeed.
It's fantastic to strive towards a nice life where you eat nice organic food and your children go to a nice school and you can afford nice clothes and nice perfume and the hypoallergenic make-up. But there's never a day goes by, and I mean this from the bottom of my heart, that I don't think about w
I am proud of what I've done.

I hate the analyzing thing. People say, 'Why do you think your character did that? I don't know. I'm not an analyst, and they're not in psychotherapy. Unless it's a film where they're in therapy.
My job is the same, whether they've got a hundred million or half a million. I go in and I play that character to the best of my ability.
I can't act without music very well.
My mind boggles at the amount of violence inflicted upon children in today's society.
The truth is I had lots of rehab and now I have a clean bill of health.
