Richard Curtis's quotes

  • You won't find many people who've had an easier ride in movies than I.
  • Never, ever in any of our films have we thought 'we'll do this for the American market', Sometimes we'd change a song or a name or the word 'arse' but on the whole we try to make movies for home and then just hope they'll work in the US.
  • I like to work with people who are fond of me, who really know me.
  • I think it's a responsibility of people who have had very lucky lives indeed to try to spread some of that around.
  • The worst moment of my life was when I watched Notting Hill and thought: 'Oh, God, it's exactly the same as Four Weddings and a Funeral.' I'd been working on it for four years and it never occurred to me...
  • I might have one more sit-com in me before I die.
  • These days the things you can watch together as a family are much fewer so when you get something like Doctor Who (2005) or The X Factor (2004) it is such a pleasure to sit down as a family.
  • My films are not really written in a formulaic way, even though some people might think they are. They take a long time to develop.
  • [on Philip Seymour Hoffman] I don't think there is any doubt or argument that he was the greatest character actor of our time.
