Your own barometer is all you have to go by, and often what makes a good director is knowing when not to say something. On occasions you can find yourself on a film set where the person who is wearing the director's hat is only trying to justify his position.
Gary Oldman
I still don't have a publicist. If I'm in a film, you have an obligation to promote it, I'll do as much as I can.
Gary Oldman
'Nil By Mouth' was a bit autobiographical, but as I always pointed out at the time, that's not my dad.
Gary Oldman

Gary Oldman
I want my weekends off and I want to put my kids to bed. Those are good reasons to want to be in 'Batman 2'.
Gary Oldman
People have an idea that one is in control of a career, a lot more than you really are. You can engineer things to an extent. But you are at the mercy of what comes in across the desk.
Gary Oldman
People imagine that actors are being offered everything and you are not. So things come in and sometimes there are things that I want and can't get a meeting on, or go to a different actors.

A lazy man works twice as hard. My mother told that to me, and now I say it to my kids. If you're writing an essay, keep it in the lines and in the margins so you don't have to do it over.

Gary Oldman

Gary Oldman

Gary Oldman
And costume is so important for an actor. It absolutely helps to get into character; it's the closest thing to you, it touches you. Some actors like to go into make-up and then put their clothes on, but I like to dress first; that's my routine.
