I think there are times when you walk onto a set you can potentially be either intimidated or distracted by what's going on around you.
When I go on the plane to fly home, I'm literally capable of forgetting what I do for a job. That also comes about because I choose to take massive breaks between projects, and because I choose to do this ridiculous thing of keeping home, home.
When you're shooting a film, you really don't get to be a dad, and you don't really get to be a husband. You don't really exist at all. But I do drag my family with me on location whenever I can.
I've always been attracted to cars, and driving is a completely measurable experience: if you qualify last on the grid, you're the slowest, and if you qualify first on the grid, you're the fastest. So no one can say you're slow if you're fast and no one can say you're fast if you're slow.
I've worked with some of the great cinematographers. So I'm always watching what they do and I'm watching how the director composes his shots, just because I find it interesting as an actor; you're trying to help them out as well.
I don't like to come at my character from some really technical place.
I get inhabited by a character and then you mourn it. There's a period of mourning for me, definitely.
The more I love the character, the harder it is to get it wrong. I have to get to a point that I can speak for them.
I am attracted to characters who think they are in control, but their situation is uncontrollable.
A girl's got to be fun. It's the one bit of advice I always give to friends of mine who are thinking of getting married.
The most serious film can be the most fun. The one that's supposed to be fun can be the most serious.
I fell in love with many women at school who had no idea I existed. I'm a bit of a romantic.
I think love can come fairly easily and grow - but really liking the core essence of someone is a much harder thing to bottle. If you have both, you're in pretty good shape.
My chosen exercise is cycling. I just love it.
My wife and I really, really like each other as well as love each other.
