Просматривала недавно старенькие статьи и выбрала несколько цитат - наиболее интересные высказывания Хока. так сказать, обо всем по-немногу...
Sorry, что цитаты только на английском языке. просто некоторые моменты вызвали затруднение (я ведь не профессиональный переводчик), поэтому не рискнула выкладывать свой (возможно не точный) перевод. но, самое главное, что есть оригинал... может кто-нибудь здесь на форуме, кто в совершенстве знает английский, помогут и переведут...?))
"It's hard for me to put my feelings into words."
"Magazines have such an effect on one`s fame. My problem is I`m always changing, and I want to be open to that evolution. In interviews, certains ideas have to do with what I`m experiencing - I just fell in love or stopped drinking - and I don`t want to get stuck with something I said yesterday, you know?"
"People always insinuate: Does my acting have something to do with my brother`s death? I don`t think I could do it if I thought that. I wouldn't do it. For some reason, I can feel other people`s pain. Or joy. And I take it. And I use it. I hope, that`s okay."
Q: Would you like to direct?
"In a way, yes. Every actor would, I guess. But not right now. I don't have that need, or that hunger."
"When I do a movie, I am obsessed with the shoes of my character. Not really for their aspect, but by what I feel when I wear them, the way they help me changing the walk of the character."
"We always had angels in our lives‚ people who became friends and are friends to this day."
"People move in and out of your life when you both need it. When I met her [Liv Tyler], she certainly had this spunk, this kind of zest for life and excitement about the future. And at that point, I suppose, I was bitter about a lot of things: about my brother and the press and how ugly everything seemed. Liv helped change my perspective, and that was a great thing."
To the question if there is an actor/actress with whom he'd like to do a movie together, Joaquin replies that there was, and that he has already done a movie with her. "I enjoyed the happiness of doing Inventing the Abbotts with Liv Tyler."
"For me, the process is the best part and then I'm through with it. Which is why I don't like doing interviews because I don't like to revisit the piece, just 'cause I'm purely selfish and I'm done with it."
"I trust my sixth sense. It's what tells me if I must accept a movie or not. It's almost spontaneous! If I start immediately imagining what I could do with the character, it means that there is a potential that I want to deepen and experiment."
"I am petrified each time, as if it was my first movie. Until the last moment, until one says "Action", I feel not knowing what I am going to do. But I like this impression of feeling in an uncertain balance. That's what makes me vigilant."
"I'm not comfortable with fame. More than anything, it doesn't really interest me. The work is what's lasting and that's what keeps me inspired."
"...I traveled to Mexico and worked on a beach, renting motorcycles. But that came to a sudden halt when I had an accident on a motorcycle and broke my arm."
"When I'm acting, I feel some kind of pain. Any actor who doesn't is crap. I never considered myself the kind of actor who just showed up and said his lines, and could suddenly be tired or angry or whatever. I feel all of these emotions in varying degrees."
"I don't really go to the movies. Maybe I'm too sensitive, but I always seem affected by the crowds. I hate that. I just want to experience the film for myself. So I generally just watch films at home on my own."
"Flying is something I just can't bear. I hate the powerlessness."
"I don't have a lot of secrets. I don't think I am [a typical man]. I think I was raised where I was encouraged to express myself. I think acting came out of that. In that sense, I think I was raised somewhat unconventionally. I think that was encouraged. And I think my girlfriend likes it. I think I'm comfortable talking about things that men typically wouldn't."
"The Oscars, to me, was a recognition of my work, and in a way it was saying, 'You're not alone.' I think you have multiple extended families, and I'll always feel close to people I work with. I think that's when I work best. It's important to feel safe. If you're doing it for outside validation, you're going to be destroyed. The same thing that can make you feel great one moment, saying you're wonderful one moment, and the next you're [not]. I think I'm conscious of that. I've always done things for me. That sounds really selfish. I don't know any other way to do it. That's what drives me."
"In interviews I could say virtually anything. Some of it's true, but I don't care. I like some of the lies that are out there. Some of them are horrible and damaging, but I probably feel more comfort in people believing lies than knowing the truth. I know my truth and that's all that really matters to me. Why worry what others think?"
Q: What is your greatest regret?
"That is a bit of a personal question. I try to not live in regret as I don’t see the point. What’s past is past. I try to live in the moment. I like to be present at all times even if I’m having a bad moment in the present."
И очень интересное интервью:
Q: Joaquin, you play the role of a young man very self-confident in the movie, The Yards. Is it one of your qualities?
"No, I admit that I don’t have as much self-confidence as my character [laughs]. I even have many difficulties to have confidence in myself."
Q: Your parents were hippies who travelled a lot [they were part of a religious group, The Children of God]. Is spirituality important for you?
"I’ve always been interested in the spiritual aspect of things. But I’ve never been compelled to follow precise moral rules, I’ve been taught to interpret in a personal way the different religions."
Q: What kind of education did you have?
"At home, I had much liberty. When I noticed one day that my friends had to follow the rules established by their parents, I was surprised. My mother and my father encouraged me to find my own answers to the fundamental questions that any human being asks about life. Actually, they expected me to think. I find that it’s the best way to educated children."
Q: Would you like to build a family?
"Certainly. I love kids and the idea to have some pleases me. One of my sisters have two kids now and I enjoy a lot to play the uncle. But after having spent almost 6 hours with them, I can’t any more. I bring them home and I run away. It’s incredible how energetic kids are!"
Q: You grew up among your sisters and your mother. What did that teach you about women?
"It influenced me in a positive way. It made me a more respectful person towards women than most of the American males. For me, respect is a primordial value. Moreover, I’m much less macho than the average man. I’ve never liked football, for example. I’m no sport fan. Actually, I took dance lessons when I was young."
Q: If TV doesn’t interest you, you surely have other hobbies?
"I started getting interested by the musical world some years ago. At the end of the 80’s and at the beginning of the 90’s, I was a big fan of rap and I started programming rhythms. I invented melodies and I superposed them to rhythmic sequences. I’m not bad at it now."
Q: Director Philip Kaufman said that you have, as an actor, a huge sensibility. Are you the same in real life?
"I understand what he means. When I work, I can indeed be very intense. But let’s not trust what I can deliver on a shooting. Work and personal life are two different things. For example, it took me years to understand that I don’t really know Nicole Kidman even if I played with her in To Die For."
Q: Never trust the appearances…
"You know, you can have a love’s relationship with someone for years and realise suddenly that you don’t understand her. Human being is in a constant evolution. As for me, I think that I’m a complex person who changes all the time."
