Acting is the best job in the world... Look at the way they treat you when you turn up for work. They give you breakfast and a cup of tea and ask, 'Are you all right?' They tart up your face, you say somebody else's words, then pick up your check and go home. And you get days off! I tell you, it really is the way to live.Bob Hoskins
Was the most peaceful place on earth. There is something quite extraordinary about the theatre. On some nights - very rarely, and some people have never experienced it - actors say 'Pan's in.' Whatever anybody does, it works. Pan is sitting on your shoulders. He's with you. I had it a couple of times on Guys and Dolls. You just knew it was the business.Bob Hoskins
