I can't imagine childhood without 'Planet of the Apes.' I was nine or ten when the first one came out.
Gary Oldman
It's becoming increasingly harder and harder; there's no such thing as independent film anymore. There aren't any, they don't exist. In the old days you could go and get a certain amount of the budget with foreign sales, now everybody wants a marketable angle.
Gary Oldman
So Harry Potter came in and it is nice that I have kids of the right age. I took them to London and they walked around the set and met Harry Potter and that is thrilling.
Gary Oldman
You choose your friends by their character and your socks by their color.
Gary Oldman
It's funny: I'm a lifelong musician, but because I principally play the piano it's been a solitary thing.
Gary Oldman
It's always hard when you're playing someone for a lot of people out there who are going to see the movie after reading the books. There's a communion between a reader and the writer, so people will have an idea who Sirius Black is and I might not be everyone's idea of that.
Gary Oldman
At 23 it was all about acting. Today it's getting my kids to school, making sure that they've done their homework. I'm in my fifties, and I'm turning into a square.
Gary Oldman
I applaud anything that can take a kid away from a PlayStation or a Gameboy. That is a miracle in itself.
Gary Oldman
I know what it means to do a job... I worked in a factory. I respect people in the service industry. What irritates me more is when people aren't respectful. There's a lot of nonsense behavior, especially in a place like Hollywood. The money, the power, they create little monsters.
Gary Oldman
I like a cheese and pickle. Nice cheese and pickle on a real old-fashioned bread. Ploughman's lunch.
Gary Oldman
You can play older than yourself. You can play younger than yourself up to a point, and then that just becomes impossible because you carry a weight with you that you can't shift, unless you have very boyish looks.
Gary Oldman
I hadn't worked for a couple of years so I thought it would be nice to earn some money and pay the bills.
Gary Oldman
Well, I needed the work - that's the honest answer. I haven't worked for a while, a couple of years. So I thought it would be nice to get back to work and earn some money.
Gary Oldman
I don't go to premieres. I don't go to parties. I don't covet the Oscar. I don't want any of that. I don't go out. I just have dinner at home every night with my kids. Being famous, that's a whole other career. And I haven't got any energy for it.
Gary Oldman
Wanting to be a good actor is not good enough. You must want to be a great actor. You just have to have that.
Gary Oldman
My favorite meal would have to be good old-fashioned eggs, over easy, with bacon. Many others, but you can't beat that on a Sunday morning, especially with a cup of tea.
Gary Oldman
What's fascinating is that when you write a script, it's almost a stream of consciousness. You have an idea that it means something, but you're not always sure what. Then when you get on the set, the actors teach you.
Gary Oldman
I'm still a member of the Empire! Although I sometimes feel like an American with a British accent - you get contaminated after so long.
Gary Oldman
I did have a knack for playing weirdos. There's still sort of this perception of me out there as being this crazy guy.
Gary Oldman
I grew up in Deptford in south London, and at that time I used to wear toppers, loon pants and tonic suits from shops like Take 6 and Topman. I was a bit of a soul boy, but I had a very eclectic taste in music - I was into James Brown and Bowie; and I was the only kid in the neighbourhood who would also be listening to Chopin.
