Quote of the Day: Jared Leto on Why He Might’ve Turned Down ‘Dallas Buyers Club’

Jared Leto in 'Dallas Buyers Club'

"I think it probably made a really interesting aspect of the film, to have that connection and to have Rayon have one of his heroes be Marc Bolan. That’s great. Marc Bolan was an awesome person. But, for me, I made it very clear early on that I saw Rayon as a man who wanted to live his life as a woman, not someone who enjoyed putting on women’s clothing. If they wanted that kind of performance - or anything glam, or anything drag queen-y - I wasn’t the person for the part."

- Jared Leto speaks freely about how he didn't want to portray Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club, a role which one him an Oscar nomination this year.

The 28-year-old actress appeared on the red carpet for the European premiere of her latest film, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit at the Vue cinema in London's Leicester Square and said she chose to appear in an action film because it was more "fun" than some of her recent roles, which have included Never Let Me Go, A Dangerous Method and Seeking a Friend for the End of the World.

"I got to the end of Anna Karenina and I sort of realized that I'd either been dying in every film or something horrific was happening to me in every film, and I wanted to do something where that didn't happen. I wanted goodies and baddies... this is a piece of wonderful, totally pure Hollywood entertainment, which I fancied. And then I did two more movies - one called Can a Song Save Your Life and one called Laggies - that are just incredibly positive and fun."

Daniel Craig Is “Nothing” Like Bond

Daniel Craig as James BondDaniel Craig is different to James Bond in "every way."

The 44-year-old actor insists the suave spy - whom he has portrayed in three movies, Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace and Skyfall - has "nothing" to do with him as soon as he stops playing the character.

When asked in what ways he is different to 007, he said, "Every way. Nothing - that man has nothing to do with me. Nothing at all, no."

While Daniel - who is married to Rachel Weisz - admits he has been typecast by a number of people for playing Bond, he has no plans to relinquish the role: "It's working out for me at the moment. So I'll keep at it, and there'll be other stuff to do. When I accepted the job, I knew that it would have a major effect on my career. I mean, people would find it very difficult not to see me as Bond now, which I always knew would happen. But what can I do about it? It was my choice to be Bond. So I've got to get on with it and try to be the best Bond I can."

Quote of the Day: Anthony Hopkins on Staying in Character

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrity Gossip, Filmmaking

Anthony Hopkins

"No, I don't [stay in character on set]. There's no such thing. Well, you can do it if you want, but I don't go along with being called 'Mr. Hitchcock.' I think that's a lot of crap. I just don't understand that. If actors want to do that, fine. If they want to be miserable, that's up to them. I'm not interested. It's a job. I do the job. I'm certainly not going to make my life miserable just to be a character."

- Anthony Hopkins, when asked whether or not he likes to stay in character for the duration of filming (as many of the cast members of Lincoln are reported to have done)
