(On his role in Die Hard (1988)) “As far as I’m concerned, I’m not playing ‘the villain.’ I’m just playing somebody who wants certain things in life, has made certain choices, and goes after them.”

I love America because whenever I go home — there’s something about England and coming from England — but as soon as you walk down the steps of the plane you shrink. And you have to start saying “sorry” and being polite and curtsying and things like that… America just lets me be the klutz I really am.
