Hugo Weaving Quotes 1022394

A lot of people have a fear of Shakespeare. Even actors do. People are like, "Oh, I won't go and see Shakespeare because the language is so hard," but it is.

We play with each other and we stimulate each other, and we have to be prepared to be stimulated by the other. That's always my big challenge. — Hugo Weaving

I don't think I'll ever escape the fact that I don't belong anywhere in particular. I've often dreamed about going back to Nigeria, but that's a very romantic notion. It's a hideous country to go to in reality. — Hugo Weaving

To me acting originally became an extension of game playing. — Hugo Weaving

Hugo Weaving Quotes 1615260

When you're battling against the minds of the studios and the money that can go into promoting larger budget films, it's very hard for a very small-budget Australian film to get a look in. You can get critically acclaimed and go to various film festivals around the world, but that doesn't necessarily mean the majority of people are going to hear about it. — Hugo Weaving

I think I'm much less self confident today. I actually went through a quite painful period because of that thinking that I was completely hopeless. But I think that's something that we all go through at various times of our lives and it was quite a sustained thing with me. — Hugo Weaving

Hugo Weaving Quotes 1939171

As human beings, of course, we're all compromised and complex and contradictory and if a screenplay can express those contradictions within a character and if there's room for me to express them, that's a part I'd love to play, so much more than a character who is heroic and one-dimensional. — Hugo Weaving
