Politics at bottom is not all that complicated. It's all about timing.
Fonda and Gary Cooper had the best sense of timing of all the actors I knew.
Everybody has a high point and a lot goes into that: timing, situation, general consciousness.
Alex Van Halen
'Eureka' was very bad timing. The early 1980s: Reagan and Thatcher were in, greed was good, and here was a film about the richest man in the world who still couldn't be happy. Politically and sociologically, it was out of step.
I am first, and foremost, an actor. That's what I am. To me, a song is a mini-drama. My musical ability informs the actor as well because it gives me a sense of timing that non-musicians don't have. So, one hand washes the other.
I would love to do something like Austin Powers to show off my comic timing.
I won't say I am a strict mother, but discipline is important. Timing and routine are important for kids.

Excess body fat alters the levels of the hormones insulin, leptin, and estrogen, and these factors are believed to be responsible for the acceleration of pubertal timing by obesity.
Sadly, the timing's never been right. There have been men who would have married me but I didn't feel the same, and vice versa.
I'd love to act more. I've had to turn down multiple movies because I was on tour, but it's encouraging to know that someday there might be the right role, the right timing.

My system works, as long as people let me do my job my way. It is not just the sequence, it is how you do it: the timing, the mirrors, the temperature, the carpet. But if people only do it 99% right, it is 100% wrong. When someone tries to mess with it, the people won't get the yoga benefits.
I just wanted to show people - maybe I'm wrong - that I can still really sing. I can sing better than I ever have before. My intonation is way better, my timing, my phrasing - there's a lot more expression; I feel it's a more lived-in, soulful voice.
At home in Devon, my wife Jessica does a huge proportion of the cooking - I do the basics.

I am aware that as an actor, I can blame others for the failure of a film, the director, the script, choice of co-stars, timing of the release and so on. But now, as the director, I will have to shoulder all the blame.

Just because you used one set on one guy and had success doesn't mean you can use that exact set, that exact timing, the next time.
C. S. Lewis
