Benicio Del Toro's quotes

  • Before I was ever in high school, I had dark circles under my eyes. The rumor was I was a junkie. I have dark circles under my eyes, deal with it.
  • I like anything that's three-dimensional, anything I can believe in - even if it's fantastic, surreal or from another planet.
  • I like to keep growing. I haven't gotten anywhere, as far as I'm concerned.
  • I'd like to do completely different roles - a romantic lead, for example. I'd like to be dressed up in a suit and get the girl at the end of the movie.
  • I do get more recognized now. If I go to dinner, people look at me more now and whisper. But as an actor, I would be no one without the people who come and see me. So it would be ridiculous for it to bother me. It just bothers me when I'm intoxicated.
