People accuse me of being arrogant all the time. I'm not arrogant, I'm focused.
If there is no blood on the line, it is not rugby league.
While I was trying to save money to go to the National Institute of Dramatic Art in Australia I ended up getting all of this experience which meant that by the time I had enough money in the bank to go to school I didn't really need to go to school anymore.
I'm sick to death of famous people standing up and using their celebrity to promote a cause. If I see a particular need, I do try to help. But there's a lot that can be achieved by putting a check in the right place and shutting up about it.
I have respect for beer.
I like villains because there's something so attractive about a committed person - they have a plan, an ideology, no matter how twisted. They're motivated.

You don't want to be starting a film not knowing what you want to do.
There has to be a mathematical explanation for how bad that tie is.
Like everyone else, I've had moments when I've felt that I've been losing my grip.
I really feel sorry for people who are, who divide their whole life up into 'things that I like' and 'things that I must do.' You're only here for a short time, mate. Learn to like it.
My days, if they start in the morning with a cuddle from my son, are just so much more glorious than they were prior to that.
South Sydney is a very complicated and wonderful place. You have some of the most expensive bits of real estate in the country and a large percentage of government housing.
