I like women. I don't understand them, but I like them.

Perhaps I'm not a good actor, but I would be even worse at doing anything else.

I admit I'm being paid well, but it's no more than I deserve. After all, I've been screwed more times than a hooker.

My view is that to get anywhere in life you have to be anti-social, otherwise you'll end up being devoured. I've never been particularly social, anyway, but if I've ever been rude, fifty per cent of it has usually been provoked by other people's attitudes. Though I do admit, like most Celts, I'm moody. It's fine until people try to cheer you up with gems like, 'snap out of it' or 'Come on, now'.

There's nothing I like better than a film that really works, provided you don't have to deal with all the shit that comes afterwards in terms of getting what you're entitled to.

Laughter kills fear, and without fear there can be no faith. For without fear of the devil there is no need for God.

The world revolves around sex. But that doesn't mean that youngsters should sleep around willy-nilly. I'm all for trial marriages. The wedding of two virgins starts off with a huge handicap.

There is nothing like a challenge to bring out the best in man.

I am not an Englishman, I was never an Englishman, and I don't ever want to be one. I am a Scotsman! I was a Scotsman and I will always be one.
