    • Tom: (revealing his thoughts on sending text messages) I don't get any pleasure from that sort of thing. I have never seen a text message - what's the point? Why not ring someone up? I think a lot of people hide behind emails because they don't like being asked questions. I love being interviewed and asked questions because I like a good chat.

    • Tom: (on doing encores) That's (passing) what we do. Were we supposed to take a knee with four minutes to go? I don't think so. That's not how we play.

    • Tom: We can't put the kids in that situation; it's just too dangerous. And it's secondary. With what the people down there are dealing with, that's the main priority, not a football game.

    • Tom: The first quarter was like a boxing match, with a big punch here, and a punch there.

    • Tom: Because the shuttle is docked, it wouldn't be able to go after them if they got away.

    • Tom: It really hit me in the gut, because I hadn't really done anything affirmative, to sort of grab the president and shake some sense into him. So this had happened on my watch.

    • Tom: Here we're playing a team that went to a bowl game last year - and won. That's a confident group. They're like 11-2 at home the past couple of years or something. They're used to playing well at home, it's going to be a big crowd and I know they're going to be excited. It's going to be a great test for us to play in that environment.

    • Tom: I always feel a bit guilty when Catherine Zeta Jones talks to me and I can't converse with her in Welsh.

    • Tom: You can't be a sexy person unless you have something sexy to offer. With me, it's my voice: the way that I sing, the way I express myself when I sing.

    • Tom: Winning the Outstanding Contribution award is great, because you know you have won in advance. Previously, I have been really nervous during the ceremony because you have no idea if you are going to get called up on stage. This time I could relax and enjoy myself.

    • Tom: Whenever I've been asked to be in a film, directors only want me to play myself... I'm fascinated by the thought of being an actor, but it's too hard. And I think Shakespeare-which has been suggested to me-might be a bit of a stretch.

    • Tom: There's plenty for me to do. There are more albums. I'll record as long as I can and as long as my voice works as well as it does now and for as long as people want to hear me.

    • Tom: I've always worn jewelery but for a time it went out of fashion. Like grungy and punk bands didn't wear jewelery because it was stupid.

    • Tom: I love listening to new stuff, at home in LA I always have the radio on to hear what is happening.

    • Tom: I like to drink to suit my location.

    • Tom: I haven't become an American! Having a house in LA is just where the house is. It's just a convenience thing living there. I carry Wales around inside me. I'd consider moving back there one day. I never really left.

    • Tom: I have had some pretty wild nights! I think the media keeps a very close eye on what people are up to these days. I was out with George Clooney a few nights ago and we had a great time.

    • Tom: As for the music business itself, the key things have not changed that much. It operates like any business and money still keeps things moving.
