Steve Coogan's quotes

  • Actors say they do their own stunts for the integrity of the film but I did them because they looked like a lot of fun.
  • I always find it easier to portray myself as being unlikeable and idiotic; to actually play a character that is likeable and engages the audience is far more difficult. It's a more subtle kind of challenge.
  • As soon as I see period costume, I turn off. It's like hearing drama on Radio 4.
  • I don't want to be someone who's trying to spin this public image of me. I have had some negative tabloid press, I'm sure you're aware [I am], but I don't like to portray myself as somehow a nice, well-rounded person.
  • In comic acting, to improvise effectively is quite difficult. A lot of actors can improvise up to a certain level - an entry level, which is when you see the actors having more fun than the audience.
  • The 'News of the World' is a misogynistic, single parent-hating, asylum seeker-hating newspaper, and it's gone to the wall, and I'm delighted.
  • I don't talk about my personal life. I don't go in Hello! magazine to get a free kitchen because I show them my kitchen. I like to be creative, but I'm not interested in being recognized.
  • People have made the observation, which is entirely valid, that Steve Coogan's becoming more like Alan Partridge. It's not actually true. Alan Partridge is becoming more and more like me.
  • When my life has been the subject of tabloid intrusion, what I have never done is get engaged in justifying myself. Celebrities who go round apologizing are pitiful, and don't do themselves any favors.
  • I'm not Mother Teresa, but I'm not Frank Bough either.
  • I don't have a Twitter thing. I don't do Facebook. I don't do any of that. I'm holding out.
  • I don't like modern jazz. I like smoother jazz, but not so smooth that it veers toward Chris De Burgh. That would be wrong.
