I was born and brought up in the countryside. I used to live in a sort of converted stables on the grounds of a castle, and I spent a lot of my childhood running around with a pretend sword pretending to be Robert the Bruce.
I'm very lucky. I had a great childhood.
Pretend was a big part of my childhood.
Vietnam was what we had instead of happy childhoods.
I had envisioned doing comedy since childhood. For sure.
I remain very much connected to my childhood... I have never been too jaded or too sophisticated.
'Marnie' was ahead of its time. People didn't talk about childhood and its effects on adult life. It was taboo to discuss sexuality and psychology and to put all that into a film was shocking.
I loved my childhood. They had the coolest toys back then. Star Wars, Transformers, laser-tag gun sets. Toy companies have really gone downhill.
What we did in our childhoods makes us who we are now.
I think childhood is, generally speaking, a preparation for disappointment.
My life is fair game for anybody. I spent an unhappy, penniless childhood in Brooklyn. I had to slug my way up in a town called Hollywood where people love to trample you to death. I don't relax because I don't know how. I don't want to know how. Life is too short to relax.
I used to have Bible studies at my house. I was in the choir. I was mischievous but also a real mama's boy. It was a pretty happy childhood.
My earliest childhood memory is watching the sunlight through a jar of amber full of wasps.
Chocolate is the first luxury. It has so many things wrapped up in it: Deliciusness in the moment, childhood memories, and that grin-inducing feeling of getting a reward for being good.
