Working gets in the way of living.
I don't know what sex appeal is. I don't think you can have sex appeal knowingly. The people who seduce me personally are the people who seem not to know they're seductive, and not to know they have sex appeal.
I'm very wary about giving advice. I think it's very dangerous to give advice to people, except if you know them very well.
This is one of the factors that also made me very much want to make this film, apart from the fact that I loved it. If the boy hadn't been Jewish and the man hadn't been Muslim, it wouldn't have made any difference to the film. I don't think it's relevant, really.
Making love? It's a communion with a woman. The bed is the holy table. There I find passion -- and purification.
I never fell in love with another woman. I cannot have a relationship with a woman if I'm not in love...I'm a very particular person, I'm not very much interested in short adventures with women or girls. I have to fall in love with someone in order to have a realtionship with her.
For some men, nothing is Written unless they Write it.
I had too many big passions in life and it gets in the way of work. You can't concentrate properly on the one thing.
They chose me for Lawrence of Arabia because I spoke English, had black hair, black eyes and a moustache. It was all luck.
People don't have to be beautiful any more. We don't have any Audrey Hepburns, Rita Hayworths or Ava Gardeners. When you look at Al Pacino and the greatest actors in Hollywood they're all common-looking.
My philosophy is that when I go out of my room, I'm prepared to love everybody I meet, unless they're bad.
I can't say I gave up totally my passion for women but almost.
I don't know what women are attracted to. I can't tell, but certainly I have no notion of having sex appeal or being seductive in any way.
I want to live every moment totally and intensely. Even when I'm giving an interview or talking to people, that's all that I'm thinking about.
This character in the film, these things that he says which sound like advice and wise things, they are very common for Orientals. It's all the tradition.
There are lots of wonderful old Italian actors. You don't need to take an Egyptian to play an Italian actor.
I see only defects because I'm not following the scene as it were. I'm not following the other person. It's like the best thing to clarify this is the theater.
He read his mind. He's a strange sort of man, isn't he? It's not just the advice and the wisdom that he has.
I didn't want to be a slave to any passion anymore. I gave up card playing altogether, even bridge and gambling - more or less. It took me a few years to get out of it.
They didn't accept me theory - not a theory, but just a thought I had about this character. I noticed that this man only exists when the boy comes into the grocery.
I'll never know what my life would have been like if they hadn't made Lawrence of Arabia. What would I be? I would maybe have 10 children, a very fat wife. I would be very fat myself. I don't know.
I don't watch any films. Billy Elliot is the only film I've seen in the last 25 years. Oh, and ET. Both of which I loved!
To learn bad dialogue is so difficult and so boring, and to work with a stupid director who tells you to do the wrong thing, etcetera, it's just unbearable.
I don't think any actor feels comfortable watching themselves in movies. You must be very narcissistic. The problem with your own opinion of yourself is that contrary to the normal spectators, when you watch a film you are in, you only watch yourself.
The reason it has relevance is because I, as a popular Arab personality - the Arab people like me and respect me - thought it was time for me to make an ever so tiny statement about what I thought about this whole thing.
