Quotes of Matthew Goode

#Quote
1It's not easy when you've got kids. You have to make some pretty unselfish decisions. I've been lucky. I'm about to finish The Good Wife (2009) and Downton Abbey (2010) we'll see what happens.
2When you see a finished film, it's very rare that it exceeds your expectations.
3I wouldn't say I'm drawn to dark roles, and it's not like I pick and choose.
4When you've got a new family, any kind of security you can have is great.
5On Benedict Cumberbatch: I'm so proud of Ben. I've known him for such a long time and the last couple of years he's really come to the forefront. Which stops him from being on my sofa going, "God, my career's not going anywhere." And now it's impossible for him to walk down the streets.
6I'll tell you what, it doesn't get more beautiful than the west of Ireland. Connemara and County Derry are quite stunning, really.
7I'm very much a jobbing actor who's still trying to find a place to rent down the road.
8My dream is to one day own a country house on the shore in England, have gotten married, wipe some debt off and get a few more good films.
9My dad was a geologist and my mum was a nurse who directed amateur theatrics.
10Making a film is very hard work, and you live or die by the sword just a little bit every time you do it, but I wouldn't chuck it in.
11I like the fact that Hogan's shoes all have this sporty sole that is great even for an older man with a bad back like me.
12Some actors go, 'Bing!' and suddenly they're being paid huge sums. Me, I seem to get screwed every time.
13I've thought about writing, but it hasn't happened yet. It's like schoolwork - you start doing your revisions two nights before you're compelled to turn it in.
14You spend some time raising a child in London, carrying it around on one side of your body - it puts your back out!
15I'm always pretty tense about everything when it comes to work.
16If I lived in L.A., I'd be schizophrenic after a week.
17I'm not posh, not in the slightest. My parents spent some money on my education, but I wasn't born to the purple.
18Golf courses are beautiful, it's good for the soul and it gets out the anger... well, if you don't care about the score then you won't have a heart attack.
19I don't think I know enough about acting to direct. You need to be a slight megalomaniac, not where you want to take over the world, but where you want to make every single decision and the buck stops with you. It's an awful lot of stress.
20[on playing Charles Ryder in Brideshead Revisited (2008)] It was hard without the voiceover, when you've got no words, it's difficult to be Mr Charm. I saw Charles Ryder as the loneliest person in the whole world. He had a loveless childhood growing up with no mother and a distant father - and who of us knows our father, anyway? Also, I'm no one, so just the fact that I was offered the part of Ryder is amazing.
21When it comes to acting, it is very limiting to be English. It was 'Bring on the posh!' All the parts I was being offered involved my accent or someone with money and title.
