Zitat des Tages von Rhys Ifans:
My personal life is invented for me, so why bother?
I honed my passion for acting in theatre and education, and I think it's important not to belittle the child audience.
Well, I need to be frightened on a regular basis.
As a Welsh speaker, I'm very conscious of how activism can effect real change.
I'm always flabbergasted and overwhelmed by the audience a film reaches.
It's every boy's dream to play Captain Hook.
I'll move back to Wales if and when I have children. I want them to speak the language I speak, but I love living in London. It's my favourite city in the whole world. I love it because it's not England, it's London.
I think Liverpool generates generosity which rubs off - it's a good place to work and to party.
I just don't buy the tabloids.
After you have been incarcerated for so long, whatever story is told in the aftermath is beautiful.
There's two kinds of rock n' roll casualty: the one that has huge success and adoration, and then suddenly it stops. Or there's when you're in a band: it is all-consuming, so then you have the dream of that, and then the dream's taken away from you even before it happens.
What was extraordinary about Occupy London was that it was a village with a louder voice than one of the biggest cities of the world.
There aren't many odysseys in cinema for characters.
I think that Liverpool's particular modern history lends itself to the cinema better than London in many ways. When you go to Liverpool, you absorb that whole sound and humour.
Film can become stagnant as a medium.
Whereas Superman is a godlike guy from another planet and Batman is this mysterious, unknowable billionaire, everyone in 'Spider-Man' is human and flawed.
Every time the Tories get a bit of power, they rip off all the things I love... The mining industry. Milk.
Spider-Man is a school boy that's looking for his parents.
It's like a badge of honour if you're a British actor and you get the 'Harry Potter' call. It meant a lot to me.
I freely admit that I am a bit of a misfit.
People say: 'Oh, it's only acting,' but it's not ever just acting. At least not with me.
Every species has its pub.
We're in an age of enlightenment, and we have a choice as a society which path to take.
I've worked with Hollywood stars, but the reason most of the Hollywood stars I've worked with are Hollywood stars is that they're excellent actors, so I've been very lucky.
I come from a culture where the pub is the centre of the community. The pub is the Internet. It's where information is gathered, collated and addressed.
I'm becoming more indulgent and less giving as an actor as I get older. I'm immersing myself more in roles emotionally.
You know you are in a good film when it affects the audience.
I'm a passionate Welshman. I have a culinary relationship with language: I taste what I say because I have two languages, and each informs the other.
I've had the longest mid-life crisis ever.
You look at any culture, and prohibition has invariably been an unmitigated failure. It is just idiotic to criminalise any substance, I think.
If you had to find a period in history that would equate to what the Internet has presented us with now, it would be Elizabethan England. It was a world in flux.
Very often, actors have to face being rejected time and again, and we must remember that the red carpet lasts just a minute.
Don't be late. Learn your lines. Be good to people. Treat people nice.
In Wales, singing and storytelling are party skills, not professions.
Shyness is invariably a suppression of something. It's almost a fear of what you're capable of.
I don't have a problem with green screen at all. I think children invented CGI. We invent worlds. A stick can become a sword. Or a bowl of stones can become a bowl of tomatoes. That's what children do, and that's what CGI enables us to do.
