You used to front a band and seem like a big music lover, if you had to live with one song for the rest of your life, which one would it be? Not sure if I could pick just one, but I remember singing Al Green’s ‘Let’s Stay Together’ at karaoke and embarrassing myself. It has good and bad memories.
“The memory of the people is very short. I knew I was there to carry their message, their stories, but at the same time it was all wishful thinking, in one place so you’re worthless, you have to feel useless. I’m just a fucking actor, I was an idiot. But I wanted to help them and I fought this feeling. They are people who have lost everything, lawyers, doctors, are like you and me, they’re afraid, they are alone and full of doubt.”- Theo James.
That’s definitely something I’ve experienced my whole life - people thinking one thing and then discovering that I’m not, hopefully. So I relate to having to fight that and claim my own identity, when people are trying to throw different ones at me.
“For me, I still have feelings for all of my ex-girlfriends. In different parts of my life, I would miss that person. There’s something that drew me to that person, and I shared something with them. It was tough knowing that this character was falling in love with me, and knowing that I was going to let her down. I’ve had certain moments in my life where I’ve felt really, really bad about shit I’ve done to an ex-girlfriend. I’ve written long letters, and you almost want them to say it’s okay, and sometimes they don’t say it. Sometimes they say, “I never want to talk you again.” That’s tough to deal with.”
“I’ve always been an instinctual sort of person so I just kind of left and I’m very blessed, so I was able to meet a woman who really took me in. I mean, I wouldn’t… I wouldn’t be here without her. It took place in Hong Kong. She took me in, I slept on her floor, she bought my food. [On how she met her] somebody gave me her number, I called her and I randomly went to her office and I just said, you know, "here I am. I’m a broke student, I don’t know what to do.” And she said, “well, let’s see what happens." Maggie Q’s Audience Surprise on The Late Show with David Letterman.
People say that New Yorkers aren’t
friendly, but I think they’re more friendly than Londoners. Here there
is a front-footed nature of Americans. You can go out on a night out and
meet 10 random people and stay in touch with them, whereas that’s not
going to happen in the same way in London.
