Choose life
Choose Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and hope that someone, somewhere cares
Choose looking up old flames, wishing you’d done it all differently
And choose watching history repeat itself
Choose your future
Choose reality TV, slut shaming, revenge porn
Choose a zero hour contract, a two hour journey to work
And choose the same for your kids, only worse, and smother the pain with an unknown dose of an unknown drug made in somebody’s kitchen
And then… take a deep breath
You’re an addict, so be addicted
Just be addicted to something else
Choose the ones you love
Choose your future
Choose life
—  T2 (Trainspotting 2)
Out of everyone, Jonny and I were probably the closest.  Jesus Christ.  Big, big, big hugs.  Just holding onto each other, actually.
—  Robert Carlyle was overcome with emotion when they were then joined by Jonny Lee Miller after he’d finished filming Elementary.  Immediately after the hugging, Miller ran to that toilet to throw up.  (Empire, February 2017)

“I knew this guy [Begbie] so well. He’s become like a friend, really. Literally, everywhere I go, every country that I go to, people know this character. He’s just psychotic, but they kind of love him in this strange kind of way.”
