But don't call me an actor. I'm just a worker. I am an entertainer. Don't say that what I am doing is art.


My concern is to continue respecting my work as I've done since I began as an actor and I could only do that if I'm strong enough to keep on doing what I think best in an artistic way.


I truly don't have any formula for the choices I make.


I will work with a director who has good material because at the end of the day, that's what counts.


Sometimes I say to myself, what are you doing in this absurd job? Why don't you go to Africa and help people? But I cannot help people, because I am a hypochondriac.


An award doesn't necessarily make you a better actor.


This great imperialistic world called the United States has made us believe that an Oscar is the most important thing in the world for an actor. But if you think about it for five minutes you realise it can't be.


The only thing I can do is act, but it's not something I even feel comfortable doing. It costs me a lot, because I'm a shy person, even if I don't look it.


I don't really care where movies come from as long as they're worth making.


What does my performance have to do with Russell Crowe's? Nothing. If I play Gladiator and we all play Gladiator with Ridley Scott in the same amount of time, maybe we have a chance to see who did it best.


Some quality performances and movies have a chance to be rewarded, but it's not like it's a bible.


Celebrity is very weird.


We actors always say how difficult and physically demanding a role was. But give me a break, it's only a movie.


I live in Spain. Oscars are something that are on TV Sunday night. Basically, very late at night. You don't watch, you just read the news after who won or who lost.


Awards were made in Hollywood, in whatever the time it was created. They're to promote each other's movies. You give me an award, I give you an award and people will believe that we are great movies and they'll go to see them. It's still the same.


I don't know how to drive a car.


The award is important in order to bring people to the movie theater. That's the only principle meaning of any award.


We live in the moment now where this whole movie business is crazy.


I want to act because I don't know how to do anything else.


Now, there are so many movies, so many festivals, and so many awards going on, each judged with each other, like your work is worse than others and that's not fair. How can you tell what's best and what's worst from these awards? We're talking about art.
