Emily Watson quotes

I think so, Silence of the Lambs was a great, suspenseful thriller and I would expect Red Dragon to be similar. And I think it's very character driven.

I grew up without a television. It meant that I read lots of books and entertained myself.

And it is very sexy as well: somebody says I'm taking you on a surprise date, you don't know where you are going and you can't see and then you put your hand out and there is a tiger. Amazing.

Believing in God is a very intense inner struggle of mine. It's something I worry about a lot, but which I don't have the answer to.

I always think I am going to do my best.

I do think you feel a little bit like you are preying on people's lives.

I don't think I will be less good because there's less pressure on me.

I sometimes feel like it's difficult for people to relate to me, until they spend, like, a day with me, and until they walk around with me in public.

I was a normal, rather dutiful child. I didn't even rebel as a teenager.

I was a pretentious child. I grew up without a television. I read a lot of books and I loved Shakespeare. Still do.

I've always been creative, I think.

In my early career I was like a goldfish. Rejection didn't affect me; I'd just forget how bad it was and keep going back for more.

Please, please, please - I would love to do some comedy. Once you have a reputation for one thing - in my case, crying and dying - you are typecast.

Yeah, a lot of people think I'll be a tortured nutcase when they meet me.

You have to play the logic of a character.

As actors, we went where we wanted to, and the camera followed us: it was like having another person in the room. There was no formal structure to the process. It was very liberating.

During Breaking The Waves, I was on my own in a hotel room. I think I would have been impossible to live with. When you go home, you have to pretend to be the person you are at home.

I am married to the most amazing, generous and beautiful human being and it has been hard on him because from the outside if you look at it it's just all about me.

I don't know what makes a marriage work. My husband and I don't have it right at all; it's very tough on him. From the outside it looks like it's all about me - I have a glorious career and he doesn't.

I have to be a lot more calculating because I'm a very private person. I actually really struggle with the attention; I'm generally a pretty shy kind of a person. So it's tough figuring out how to manage it. But there are ways of managing it, and you just have to be smart.
