Fabio kept asking me out, but I knew we'd never get his ego through the door.
I've always been one of the youngest guys on the team. But now I'm one of the older guys, one of the more experienced guys, and I have to be more of a leader. The guys are looking up to me, asking me questions and looking at me to step up.
The English never smash in a face. They merely refrain from asking it to dinner.
I'm not dieting anymore. I want to eat what my body is asking of me. Just listen to your body in general - it's all self-awareness.
To come into my world, I've got some M&Ms and some potato chips, and I'm asking you to move furniture. We're making a movie. We're making it like we're putting on a play.
I remember people - not my family - always asking, 'Oh, so are you going to make movies when you're older?' I felt pressured, and that always kind of deterred me.
People always want to pin yesterday's news on you, as opposed to asking you what you're going to do for the future, what you're doing today.
People are always asking me where I come from, and they're expecting me to say India, and they're absolutely right insofar as 100 percent of my blood and ancestry does come from India. Except, I've never lived one day of my life there. I can't speak even one word of its more than 22,000 dialects.
I mean, I don't like sitting at a table with seven or eight people asking me questions and kind of listening to what I'm doing - scrutinizing my thoughts and things like that. I just don't like it. I can't understand how anyone would.

Actors don't generally go asking other actors for advice too much, but I'll take suggestions wherever I can.
I think our sense as actors of what we've just done - whether or not it be in an audition - is usually really not connected to any truth. I'm always asking for more takes and more goes. I think I just need to shut up and listen.
I remember the first time Dakota asked me for fashion advice about what to put with what. I was like, 'My big sister is asking me?'
There was an opinion expressed in the newspapers that, after 20 years, maybe the Israel Philharmonic should consider asking me to leave. I thought they might have a point, so I asked my orchestra. They told me overwhelmingly that they wanted me to stay.

Abdallah II of Jordan
