Anna Friel's quotes

  • People became more interested in my love life than in me, and that has a certain effect. You start to feel very empty and worth nothing, you start to become a piece in a board game you never wanted to play.
  • I play a character every day of my life, and I don't want to play a character as myself. They can judge me as an actress, not as a person. I'm not a spokeswoman for Anna.
  • For me personally, everything is on a kiss.
  • I have the most lovely, healthy bouncing baby, she was all very compact and the right size.
  • I look at being an actress as being like a mummy: You're bandaged up and preserved as soon as you start making other people money.
  • I've always chosen incredibly different roles and things that are quite offbeat. That way you're not limited.
  • And the most important thing - apart from telling a good, believable story, and being a true character - is to be someone the audience will care about, even if you're playing a murderer or rapist.
  • For Closer, we've had five weeks. You go into every single word because it's very, very concentrated dialogue.
  • David is 13 years my senior and has much more experience.
  • I want more children but for the next three years I want to act.
  • Now learning a bit more about footballers I think what they need to do well, is someone who really wants to stay in the background and just be a strong support.
  • The doctors say it dates back to a film where I had these huge prosthetic breasts because my character was breast-feeding. The weight of them, and of the baby, did my back in.
  • Well it's hard to bracket it like that because everyone always thinks you either go to America and you come back, fail or succeed, but it doesn't work like that.
  • I've been onstage once for one performance with four days' rehearsal.
  • It's really important to draw the line on what we do as actors.
  • Onstage, there's no hiding; you either can or can't act. There's no second take.
  • We will spend more time in America, we're going to get a place in LA as hotels aren't great for the baby.
  • As long as she is talented enough and passionate about doing it herself then I will be happy and support her. I think I will be sensible - my parents said I could only do it if I got my education and so I had something to fall back on.
  • You can see when an actor gets bored: Their eyes go dead. I promised myself I'd never let that happen. If it does, I'll go and live on a desert island for a year.
