I have the gift of the gab, can talk and perform, but so can others. I can only attribute it to the fact that somebody up there likes me: it's remote-controlled by God.
There is something about the way that Greek poets, say Aeschylus, use metaphor that really attracts me. I don't think I can imitate it, but there's a density to it that I think I'm always trying to push towards in English.
I want to keep my attractiveness as long as I can. It has to do with vitality and energy and interest.
I choose to do unattractive people, because then I can pretend they think they're attractive.
I realize I can never take my success for granted. It's not attractive for anyone to be like that.
People might find me attractive, but it's also my job to prove that I can be intelligent.
I think I can be relatively attractive when I dress up, but I'm not Julia Roberts or Catherine Zeta Jones.
The alliance with air Berlin is attractive for me. I can use the whole sales network of the air Berlin and 24 percent of my own airline at air Berlin sold.
I think I can be beautiful with all the little stuff done, and I can be ugly. A lot of attractive actresses can't be ugly.
My family is not only attractive - I can say that because I'm paterfamilias - but they're really smart, and they're very, very compassionate.
My personal belief is that attraction to SF/F is coded right into your genes. I was attracted to monsters and robots as far back as I can remember.
I am attracted to the complexities and deeper truths of characters, and I can't name a favourite role any more than I can name a favourite food!
I'm attracted to stories that excite my imagination, stories that, as I'm reading the script, I feel it, I can see it, I can hear the characters. I'm attracted to characters that are real, that tap into something inside me that I haven't explored yet.
Every film's different; every story is so different. But I think I've always been attracted to try to take something minimal and to maximize it cinematically. To find out if I can I really go all the way with one idea.
I just have to go against the grain. I mean, I can be objective and do what I need to do, handle my everyday living, follow directions, etc. But there's something that's always been attracted to that taboo. It's been like that since I was a child.
I'm attracted to roles that are unpredictable, and if I can get my hands on something like that, I'm thrilled. I like performances where you don't know what's coming, moment to moment.
I'm attracted to seeing how different I can be, pushing the boat out.
I go to these cocktail parties now, and I say I make video games, and people go, 'Wow.' I can attract crowds.
