But playing a character like or Willy Wonka, that requires nothing but a degree of responsibility to the intent of the story, responsibility to the filmmaker to deliver the goods.”

85. “I think it’s an actor’s responsibility to change every time. Not only for himself and the people he’s working with, but for the audience. If you just go out and deliver the same dish every time, it’s meatloaf again, you’d get bored. I’d get bored.”

87. “One of the most beautiful things in the world is seeing a mommy with her kids. There’s nothing more beautiful, nothing more sublime.”

88. “Lily’s really together, she’s a sharp kid and one of the smartest human beings I have ever met. Whatever she is doing, if she needs any advice, I’m there for her. Kids are going to make their own decisions, but I guess that the only thing you can do as a is to offer support. And I do.”

91. “It’s all kinds of these profound things crashing on you when your child arrives into the world. It’s like you’ve met your reason to live.”

95. “There are necessary evils. Money is an important thing in terms of representing freedom in our world, and now I have a daughter to think about. It’s really the first time I’ve thought about the future and what it could be.”

96. “You start getting hit with some very interesting situations in life, you as a parent, when they approach that teenage area, which is frightening because you still have memories of that age and the things you were doing at that age, please don’t do what I did.”

97. “Anything I’ve done up till May 27th 1999 was kind of an illusion, existing without living. My daughter—the birth of my daughter, gave me life.”

98. “The only creatures that are evolved enough to convey pure love are dogs and infants.”

Everything I’ve done has felt very natural, and it’s happened because it’s happened.”

103. “You use your money to buy privacy because during most of your life you aren’t allowed to be normal.”

104. “I have known plenty of people who, in their later years, had the energy of children and the kind of curiosity and fascination with things like little children. I think we can keep that, and I think it’s important to keep that part of staying young. But I also think it’s great fun growing old.”

105. “I suppose the only thing at 50 you can really start to look forward to, is just total irresponsibility. As you get older, you can just sit in a chair, wear anything you want, you know you can walk down; old people dress cool. You know they wear sweatpants. The elderly have it down.”

106. “For me, it’s always more difficult and slightly exposing to play something that’s close to yourself. I always like to try to hide, just because I can’t stand the way I look.”

107. “If someone is being bullied or feels like an outsider, and they relate to something that I’ve done, even if it’s just igniting a spark, that’s great. I had that feeling as a kid, I was messed with no end.”

108. “Music touches us emotionally, where words alone can’t.”

111. “I don’t think anybody’s necessarily ready for death. You can only hope that when it approaches, you feel like you’ve said what you wanted to say. Nobody wants to go out in mid-sentence.”

112. “They stick you with those names, those labels, ‘rebel’ or whatever, whatever they like to use. Because they need a label, they need a name. They need something to put the price tag on the back of.”

113. “Everything here is edible, even I’m edible. But that, dear children, is cannibalism, and is in fact frowned upon in most societies.”

114. “Tomorrow it’ll all be over, then I’ll have to go back to selling pens again.”

115. “I always felt like I was meant to have been born in another era, another time.”

116. “I don’t pretend to be captain weird, I just do what I do.”

117. “Throughout my lifetime I’ve left pieces of my heart here and there. And now, there’s almost barely enough to stay alive. But I forced a smile, knowing that my ambition far exceeded my talent.”

118. “America is dumb. It’s like a dumb puppy that has big teeth that can bite and hurt you, aggressive. My is four, my boy is one. I’d like them to see America as a toy, a broken toy. Investigate it a little, check it out, get this feeling, and then get out.”

121. “I hope someday to make you all a cup of coffee. Alright, peace.”

122. “I don’t trust anyone who hasn’t been self-destructive in some way. Who hasn’t gone through some sort of bout of self-loathing? You’ve got to bang yourself around a bit to know yourself.”

123. “Everything is just very, very blurry. I’ve never had a proper vision.”

124. “I was ecstatic that they re-named french fries as ‘Freedom Fries.’ Grown men and women in positions of power in the U.S. government showing themselves as idiots.”

126. “For a long time, I tried to manage honesty and openness about my personal life because I’m human and I’m normal, well, semi-normal.”

127. “There’s definitely healing properties to being in proximity to the ocean and that breeze. There’s something about that Caribbean climate and humidity.”

128. “’Edward Scissorhands’ was tough to let go of because I found real safety in allowing myself to be that open, that honest, and to explore purity. It was a hard one to walk away from.”

129. “Nobody’s ever made a film in the history of cinema where they weren’t expecting some return on their dough.”

130. “I made odd noises as a child. Just did weird things, like turn off light switches twice. I think my parents thought I had Tourette’s syndrome.”

131. “The commercial flight thing, it just gets a little weird when you’re standing in line and suddenly you’re not just a guy standing in line anymore, you become sort of ‘novelty boy.’”

132. “I’ve had some rank auditions where I embarrassed myself to new heights, which is hard for me to do. I was never good at auditioning. There are a number of actors over the years who come up the ranks who are horrific at auditioning.”

133. “I am an American. I love my country and have great hopes for it. It is for this reason that I speak candidly and sometimes critically about it. I have benefited greatly from the freedom that exists in my country, and for this, I am eternally grateful.”

134. “When I met people they said, ‘You do look like a hobo, but you smell really good.’”

135. “I’m not Blockbuster Boy.”

136. “It’s funny because what happens to me when I read a script when something grabs hold of me, I start getting these flashes of people or places or things or images.”

137. “I don’t think it’s anything you ever get used to, for many years, I could never sort of putting my name in the same sort of category as the word ‘famous’ or anything like that, and I just found it very uncomfortable. If you get used to it, then something must be wrong.”

138. “There’s always that moment in every movie where you just go, ‘Okay, this is that moment. I’m about to potentially fall flat on my face, and I might as well just dive in and see what happens.’”
