I never travel without my Stetson, but the more I wear it the more I realise that no one wears hats any more. When I was a kid everybody wore hats, especially in Texas, but I get off the plane in Dallas now and I’m the only guy with a hat. It’s amazing.
Every now and then I have to teach directing. The thing about the theatre is that the most important thing you can do as a director is to make sure that everybody is in the same world – you have to create the world and make sure everyone buys into it.
Well, unbeknownst to everybody, I did a movie when I was 19.
When you play against the best, it brings the best out in everybody.
We’ve got to be fair. You can’t say a place that has strip joints is sacred ground. We’ve got to be just. We’ve got to speak the truth. We’ve got to have justice for everybody. We’re a country of justice for all, not justice for non-Muslims only or some groups and not for others.

Everybody in the world, must work to earn a living.
My party trick is that I ask everybody questions. I’m just nosey.
Everybody who is incapable of learning has taken to teaching.
We have got this Damocles’ sword of Standard and Poor’s hanging over us, with the commitment they have made to review Britain’s credit rating in the summer of 2010 after the general election. Everybody in Britain has a vital interest in ensuring that the triple A credit rating agency is maintained.
Parenting is not for everybody. It changes your life. Especially when they’re little.
I had several publishers, and they were all the same. They all wanted salacious. And everybody is writing autobiographies, and that’s one reason why I’m not going to do it. If young Posh Spice can write her autobiography, then I don’t want to write one!
I feel like there’s an obsession with pace right now in theater, with things being very fast and very witty and very loud, and I think we’re all so freaked out about theater keeping audiences interested because everybody’s so freaked out about theater becoming irrelevant.
I am nice to everybody. But people really take advantage of it.
