"I'd like to produce, direct, write, score, and star in a film in exactly the way (Charlie) Chaplin did. I'll do that before I'm thirty." - in 1985


Every bad decision I've made has been based on money. I grew up in the projects and you don't turn down money there. You take it, because you never know when it's all going to end. I made Cop III because they offered me $15 million. That $15 million was worth having Roger Ebert's thumb up my ass.


I started out as an impressionist and that's all about observing - how people move, their voice quality, their attitudes and quirks.


(Asked why he accepted Best Defense (1984)): "The door opened and four guys came in carrying a cheque."


"That's my idol, Elvis Presley. If you went to my house, you'd see pictures all over of Elvis. He's just the greatest entertainer that ever lived. And I think it's because he had such presence. When Elvis walked into a room, Elvis Presley was in the f---ing room. I don't give a f--- who was in the room with him, Bogart, Marilyn Monroe".


If you're involved in with something that's original, you know, you'll always go back and try to rehash it.


The advice I would give to someone is to not take anyone's advice.


I keep telling people I'll make movies until I'm fifty and then I'll go and do something else. I'm going to be a professional gentleman of leisure.


The only reason I did "Showtime" was Robert De Niro. I definitely consider him to be in top 5 all time best actors.


I'm relaxed about my career. I've been making movies for over 20 years, so I've earned at least the right to relax.


I'd like to produce, direct, write, score, and star in a film in exactly the way Chaplin did. I'll do that before I'm thirty.


The economy in Ireland has been rampaging ahead for the last 15 years. Barring an international, political or natural catastrophe, things can only get better for the Irish.


I've always had confidence. It came because I have lots of initiative. I wanted to make something of myself.


I don't think more concentration is required for Robert De Niro to do what he does as for Jim Carrey to do what he does.


If I don't die in a plane crash or something, this country has a rare opportunity to watch a great talent grow.
