Quotes by James
I don't have any expectations as an actor and being rich and famous is not my driving force. I'm not really very ambitious. I'm more interested in enjoying my life and looking after my family than being hugely successful. There are lots of people I admire and respect, but I don't necessarily want to be like them. I'm too happy being myself.
I find it incredibly romantic that people should fight for a cause they believe in and be prepared to die for it.
The good guy only gets the girl in a soppy way.
I'm attracted to seeing how different I can be, pushing the boat out.
Baddies always do get the best lines, that's the honest truth.
With a bad guy you just know you're bad. To play a nice guy is harder - unless you are a very nice person like me of course.
The reason I wanted to be an actor is that I don't want to play me for the rest of my life and make money out of that.
It was only when I finished the course and left my graduation diploma on the bus that I realized I'd become an actor.
There are many actors that I respect tremendously, but none that I try to emulate. The truth is that one cannot do the same thing the same way that some one else does, and that is a good thing
There is a school of acting that says, ‘Find what you can do really well and stick to it,’ but that doesn’t really float my boat.
At some point I’d gone over to America, because if it didn’t involve a pair of britches and a wig I wasn’t in serious consideration for the part.
If I’ve only got one life I’d like to do what I want to do with it. At least I’ll go down in flames rather than always wondering: what if?
I don’t want to be the poster boy either way. I like being able to play people from all different walks of life and I’m not interested in being anyone’s judge. I have views, but I’m not a politician, I’m an actor.
I like everything about acting. Including the unemployment.
Apart from Cloud Atlas, I haven’t seen myself on screen for years. In my mind’s eye I’m channelling Johnny Depp. Why spoil it?
I suspect with all of life I usually start from a position of fear and don't think I can do things. And the big trick seems to be to acknowledge that that is how you feel and do it anyway.
I have my own feelings about projects I work on and what they mean to me. The reviews are for other people.
Being an actor is like being a gipsy – you go where the work is.
I lucked into the job that I'm ideally suited for.
You feel pretty good about yourself when you realize you can do things you never thought you could.
When I was a kid, going to the movies was the place where I felt very comfortable and very safe to have emotions…very excitable emotions…
People always say you look like someone. I always try to forget it. You know, you just want to be you.
I love being involved in projects that help people to feel, in whatever capacity that is. That’s really the motivating force for me being an actor;
My view of acting, and it's difficult to say anything about acting without sounding like a wally, is that everybody acts all the time, every human. You are a different person with your parents than you are with your partner, than you are with a friend in a bar, than you are with your boss. We’re all slightly different people all the time. I just think actors get paid to notice that.
