(1906–1972) was a British actor.
"A woman, a dog and a walnut tree, the more you beat them, the better they be."
"Acting is like roller-skating. Once you know how to do it, it is neither stimulating nor exciting."
"I am not one of those people who would rather act than eat. Quite the reverse. My own desire as a boy was to retire. That ambition has never changed."
"I don't ask questions. I just take their money and use it for things that really interest me."
"I was beastly but never coarse. A high-class sort of heel."
"I never really thought I'd make the grade. And let's face it, I haven't."
"The important thing for a star is to have an interesting face. He doesn't have to move it very much. Editing and camerawork can always produce the desired illusion that a performance is being given."
(when asked if there was a part left he'd like to play) "Well, no one has asked me to play God. I suppose that's what I would like."
"I am always rude to people. I am not a sweet person. I am a disagreeable person. I am a hateful person."
