Quotes of Brendan Gleeson

Ирландский актёр, режиссёр и сценарист

  • ⋅As long as such suburbs do not end up as commuter dormitories or nothing more than commuter suburbs. The next stage is to produce a richer range of activities and employment opportunities so they can be more self-contained. I think Springfield is a first step, but only a first step and the next phase is going to be critical and that is achieving higher level of self-containment. /Brendan Gleeson
  • ⋅Moody is a gunslinger with a wand. He's someone who has chased the demons away from goodness to the extent that he's gotten quite warped by it. One of the things [director] Mike Newell suggested when we first discussed the character was that Moody's great wounds have damaged him greatly. It's a very interesting arc to play with this character, who comes into Hogwarts as death warmed over and grows into someone the kids learn to trust. /Brendan Gleeson
  • ⋅He has no time for book learning or pussy-footing about. He wants to show these young men and women what they're up against - evil exists and they better know what they're getting themselves into. He's a one-man initiation ceremony, a walking rite-of-passage. He doesn't believe in treading lightly with Harry or the other students because that won't prepare them for the real world. /Brendan Gleeson
  • ⋅He never patronizes them. He can be quite idiosyncratic. /Brendan Gleeson

  • ⋅I don't plan in terms of career ambitions. The only career ambition I have is to work with people who are going to bring you up and elevate your performance. They'll let you know things that you didn't know already and bring you places that you might not have gotten to otherwise. /Brendan Gleeson
  • ⋅I don't want people poking around in my private stuff. They've no business in it. My work is what I give to people, that's my job, and that's where it stops. /Brendan Gleeson
  • ⋅I loved teaching. And I always used to say that acting was just something I did purely on my own terms, and that if I had to make a living from it there would be too much pressure. /Brendan Gleeson
  • ⋅I think every character actor at some stage likes to carry a film. It can be extremely liberating to just come in for a scene or two and do your thing. But I find it frustrating if I'm just doing little bits here and there for too long. /Brendan Gleeson
  • ⋅I started hitching about the country when I was 16 or 17 years old. I found the music that was played around the country - Irish music - had a particular resonance. /Brendan Gleeson
  • ⋅It's interesting going between small parts and then bigger roles where you carry the film. If the writing is good, and if the people involved have integrity, then you'll do it, even if it's only five minutes on screen. /Brendan Gleeson
  • ⋅Look at the Coen brothers. All their minor characters are as interesting as their protagonists. If the smaller characters are well-written, the whole world of the film becomes enriched. It's not the size of the thing, but the detail. /Brendan Gleeson
  • ⋅I worked with Steven Spielberg on AI, and his level of preparation was extraordinary. He told me there was a time at the beginning when he was a bit more spontaneous and went over budget, and it absolutely wrecked his head. When you look at the power and assuredness of his movies, it makes sense that he works out so much in advance. /Brendan Gleeson
  • ⋅He earned every precious beautiful moment life gave back to him. /Brendan Gleeson
  • ⋅As an actor, to get a gift of a part like that is unusual. And then, to have the prospect of another one is always going to be interesting and exciting. /Brendan Gleeson
  • ⋅We're getting the blues about having to walk away from this whole thing. We enjoyed it a lot and it all felt good. We had a good experience on it. We thought we could do good work together. And it is unusual to get the next one, straight off the bed. John is funny. When he gets moving, he moves pretty quickly. /Brendan Gleeson
  • ⋅Once we start shooting, it's in there. You're trying to get into a place where you rise to the work, rather than make it manageable or make it work for you. /Brendan Gleeson
  • ⋅You work for it. You don't have to massage it, so that it fits into the way it has to be. He's just too vigorous a writer and the dialogue is too sparking to do anything other than inhabit it and give it as much truth as you can. You just try to make it part of your DNA. That's what the challenge is, really. /Brendan Gleeson
  • ⋅I think most people are decent people. I don't know if they could stand the pressure he's under, but most people aspire to be decent people. /Brendan Gleeson
  • ⋅So, to get to play somebody who was insisting on it, in spite of all the evidence was very liberating and exciting. It went quite deep. I suppose I reference a kindness and humility that I would have seen in my parents' generation, a little bit more than now. /Brendan Gleeson
  • ⋅We lost faith in authority in the '50s, up to a point, and we spawned a lot of anti-heroes in movies, which were refreshing and open. But at this point, with the distrust that's there and the disillusionment with leadership that is so acute, we need some kind of a focus on taking the irony out and taking the anti-hero element away. /Brendan Gleeson
  • ⋅Are there people to aspire to? Can people be strong enough to withstand all of this disillusionment? Maybe the time is right for people to emerge from the easy cynicism and try to get back to a place where we can actually believe in people and trust people to have proper motivations. /Brendan Gleeson
  • ⋅I think it's doubly important, now that we see so many people failing. When the norm is an anti-hero, there's a serious loss when you cannot portray a decent person on screen without it becoming slightly sentimental or feeling like it's unrealistic. /Brendan Gleeson

Women think that all men are equal, and this is their strength, men think all women are different - it destroys them.
