And Now, Some Real Talk from Paul Bettany

"I've made some bad movies, but some of those bad movies have been other people's dreams, so it would be sort of inelegant to tread on all that. I've made movies because I've thought, 'God, I really want my kids to have a house in the country.' It's depressing, not being in charge of one's destiny. So what you have the power to do as an actor is the power to say 'no'. You don't have the power to say 'yes'." And: "I think it might mean no more action films! I mean, I love action movies, I love all sorts of movies, but there are just too many of the fuckers and too few movies for grownups." [The Guardian via MovieCityNews]
