Personal Quotes:

"If someone had told me years ago that sharing a sense of humour was so vital to partnerships, I could have avoided a lot of sex!"

"No one is more enslaved than a slave who doesn't think they're enslaved."

"Everybody likes the underdog, because everybody feels like the underdog. No matter how successful you are, you always think, No one's being nice enough to me!"

"I try and take lots of vitamins and I don't drink. I do smoke, though, I'd be insufferable if I didn't smoke, you'd have to push me off a balcony I'd be so boring",

"With every project you do, you bring out a part of yourself, and it seems to be quite a good way of expanding a person."

"Apparently, I get facials and manicures all the time. I read this and think, 'Oh, I wish I did that!' I don't think I've had a facial since I was 19. When I shave my legs, I use my child's shampoo and a razor - if I can find one. If I did everything they said I did, I would never see Lily."

"I dropped out of Oxford, and now I only speak Russian with the woman who gives me a bikini-wax. See what Hollywood does to you?"

"I think, at 19, I was very grown-up in certain ways and extremely not so in others. If I had come on to a movie set at that age and someone had said, 'You're a bit funny-looking, can you go on a diet?' - I might have jumped off a building. I just didn't have the confidence to put that into perspective at the time."

"I look at how Keira Knightley is coiffed when she attends events. I remember going to Cannes with Muito Barulho por Nada (1993) when I was 18, and nobody told me, 'Oh, here's a make-up artist or, 'This person wants to dress you, what clothes are you wearing?' It just wasn't like that when I started. Nobody even told me I could bring a friend! I just sort of showed up in a very expensive pair of trousers I bought in Harvey Nichols, and something I bought in the Sock Shop at the airport. But Keira Knightley has like full hair and make- up and a proper outfit and I think, 'Wow, she's not going to have the before photos I had to endure!' She's really lucky".

"I don't think he liked being in a cage and wouldn't stop masturbating and humping his bowl." about her daughter's pet rabbit.

"It's the only time my education has come in remotely handy." -on using her Russian literature studies for copying her 'Van Helsing' script into Russian to acquire a Slavic accent.

"She [Lily] already has some Americanisms: she says 'pants' instead of trousers and 'elevator' instead of lift. That's more than enough for me."

"We had something recently when there were about 16 people in front of us taking pictures and Lily was enjoying the chance to legitimately shout at some grownups because normally she's not allowed. But even when she shouted they didn't stop. I find that shocking."

"I didn't go looking to marry an American, it just kinda happened like that."
