Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Jonny: New York and LA are both great places to visit, but I wouldn't want to live in either of them now. I find New York extremely claustrophobic and dirty. LA is quite a nice place. But there's no hustle and bustle, no street life. Everyone's going from A to B in a car. Why did I leave [America]? My relationship [with Angelina Jolie] was going bad and I missed England, simple things like smells and major things like the British sense of humour.

    • Jonny: I don't think any actor has the luxury of knowing exactly what scripts are going to turn out well and what ones aren't. It would be wonderful to have that particular skill, and maybe people like Tom Cruise have it more than most, but you go into each project hoping that a good, if not great, film will come out the other end. All you can do is look out for good scripts, and interesting people to work with.

    • Jonny: (on his first wife, Angelina Jolie) For a while, it was a very intense relationship, very passionate, and you can never regret being involved in something like that. It was sad that it ended, but I wouldn't change a thing about it. Well, except maybe my haircut.

    • Jonny: (on Natural Nylon ) Being part of Natural Nylon is a great way to have an influence on the films that get out there. I love films and it gives me an input. You're always looking for good scripts and when they're not always forthcoming you go mad. The whole point of being an actor is to get satisfaction out of a role - unless you're just vain about celebrity. You're always looking for the one thing that will surprise you.

    • Jonny: (On future acting projects) The whole thing about the way I approach work is to be surprised by an opportunity when it comes up. So I have no idea what I will be doing next, and I kind of like that.

    • Jonny: (About ex-wife Angelina Jolie) She's a very nice big hearted girl. It wasn't extraordinary at all that we were together.
