More From Geoffrey Rush
- "Within our culture, every school has a swimming pool. We lived on the coast. People swam in the surf. It’s a very sporty nation and at that particular time anyone who had an artistic bent was very much an outsider. So if you liked reading or ideas or playing the piano then your dad viewed you as a sissy, basically."
- "I did not want to put myself on the line, as an Australian playing Britain’s greatest comic actor. The fans of Sellers are obsessive, possessive – and aggressive. I did not want to risk their anger – or my own reputation."
- "I went to England in the ’70s, and I was in my early 20s. There was still a residue of that era of being an underclass or colonial. I assume it must have been a more aggressive and prominent attitude 40 years before that, because Australia internationally wasn’t regarded as having much cultural value. We were a country full of sheep and convicts."

- "I wanted to be looked at for the skateboarder that I was. I didn’t want to be the 36-year-old skateboarder who’s still holding on while owning a company at the same time. I wanted to make my mark and travel and accomplish a few things here and there and then get out."― Jason Lee
- "I made 22 million in 14 years… with taxes, and travel and everything else, it gets blown out the window… which is why I still need to work."― Boomer Esiason
