Doing Your Best
I like being kept in the dark myself. You know, like mushrooms: Keep em in the dark and feed em shit. See, I think that's an enjoyable vegetable to be.
I'm English. Our dentistry is not world famous. But I made sure I got moldings of my old teeth beforehand because I miss them.
When it comes to films, people often don't differentiate between the message of a bad central character and the message of the film itself. They are two separate things.
You can't make something like The Dark Knight and then come out with something disappointing.
There's such ups and downs. You may think that you've kind of found a spot and a groove and it seems to be working. And then you go in the next day and you'll just be terrible and try to struggle and wonder why it's just not happening and you can't sometimes figure out why at all.
What the hell kind of man decides to dress up as a bat and run around the city? There's got to be something a little bit loose in there.
I don't personally look to my own life experiences for answers about how to play a scene. For me, that's some kind of bastardization of your own experiences, you know what I mean? I've had some painful experiences in my life, but I feel like I'm trivializing them by using them for a scene in a movie. I don't want to do that. It just makes me feel kind of dirty for having done that.
I find people endlessly fascinating. As long as you can do that, each project seems like something new. Bumping into Mark Wahlberg ain't bad.
The only thing that I'm obsessed with is sleeping and actually, it is more than an obsession, it is a pleasure. I love sleeping so much that I could do it 12 hours a day if I didn`t have to turn on the alarm clock...and still, sometimes.
You stick it on, you get hot, you sweat and you get a headache in the cowl. But I'm not going to bitch about it because I get to play Batman.
I love acting, I love what we do. It's so bloody silly at times, isn't it? It's like playing dress-up, and other times it is so meaningful. I just enjoy that so much. We get to walk in other people's shoes. Life without empathy is no fun at all.
There are movies that require fantasy and slightly more fantastical acting. Lines that are good for certain movies, in real life circumstances, would be absolutely unbelievable things to really say, and you would look at these people like they're freaks for conversing that way. But somehow for certain styles of movies, it works, and it seems fine.
Batman took 10 months to film, and by the time I stopped working on it, it took a long time before my English accent came out again. I was actually having to try for it.
There have been many times when you spend a number of months and the finished product is not what you wanted to see. And Batman Begins was what I wanted to see.
I never want to turn something down because I'm afraid to do it, because of some idea of image or whatever. That was never anything I set out to do. In fact, the opposite, I always want to confuse people in terms of any kind of image and be unpredictable in any kind of movie I make. I never want to feel that I'm playing it safe.
I really do get a kick out of acting when it's done really well. When there's a feeling on the set and working in tandem with everybody and you just know that everything worked exactly how you wanted it to. That's the fantastic part. In everyday life, my wife is the most wonderful. We're in love with each other beyond belief.
I will never say never, but I will say never to doing the more typical romantic comedies. You know, unless I'm getting audited and I'm on the street and I desperately need some dough and that's the only thing that I'm getting. In terms of the romantic kind of lead, I just never enjoy those movies very much. Maybe they'll come to interest me more as I get older. I doubt it, but maybe. Romantic comedies tend to be, for me, an oxymoron.
I'd love to say I was completely impervious to anybody's opinion, but that just ain't the truth. Of course it matters. After all, what am I paid to do? I'm paid to essentially make an ass out of myself if needed. And occasionally in doing that you're going to fall flat on your face.
I mean, first of all, let me say whichever superhero first came up with the idea of wearing a cape, he wasn't really onto anything good. The number of times I'm treading on that damn thing or I throw a punch and it ends up covering my whole head. It's really not practical.
Trying too hard to be sexy is the worst thing in the world a woman can do.
