Fidelity is a virtue which should be frequently proved, but not always.
I'm very wary about giving advice. I think it's very dangerous to give advice to people, except if you know them very well.
I never fell in love with another woman. I cannot have a relationship with a woman if I'm not in love...I'm a very particular person, I'm not very much interested in short adventures with women or girls. I have to fall in love with someone in order to have a realtionship with her.
I don't know what sex appeal is. I don't think you can have sex appeal knowingly. The people who seduce me personally are the people who seem not to know they're seductive, and not to know they have sex appeal.
I love to be with my son and my grandchildren, like normal people. I have no particular idea of what I represent to other people. It's very mysterious to me. I don't understand it.
I want to live every moment totally and intensely. Even when I'm giving an interview or talking to people, that's all that I'm thinking about.
The reason it has relevance is because I, as a popular Arab personality - the Arab people like me and respect me - thought it was time for me to make an ever so tiny statement about what I thought about this whole thing.
I had too many big passions in life and it gets in the way of work. You can't concentrate properly on the one thing.
They didn't accept me theory - not a theory, but just a thought I had about this character. I noticed that this man only exists when the boy comes into the grocery.
This character in the film, these things that he says which sound like advice and wise things, they are very common for Orientals. It's all the tradition.
He read his mind. He's a strange sort of man, isn't he? It's not just the advice and the wisdom that he has.
This is one of the factors that also made me very much want to make this film, apart from the fact that I loved it. If the boy hadn't been Jewish and the man hadn't been Muslim, it wouldn't have made any difference to the film. I don't think it's relevant, really.
My philosophy is that when I go out of my room, I'm prepared to love everybody I meet, unless they're bad.
I don't think any actor feels comfortable watching themselves in movies. You must be very narcissistic. The problem with your own opinion of yourself is that contrary to the normal spectators, when you watch a film you are in, you only watch yourself.
Women know when they've got the menopause but men don't quite know. They know it afterwards.
