"I remember out in To’hajiile it was quite a chilly morning. I wimped out and I said to Bryan, I took him aside and said, ‘how do you feel about the underpants?’ He said, ‘you know what? What’s the most embarrassing thing I could be dressed in’ I said, tighty-whitey underpants’ and he said, ‘That’s what I’m gonna wear.’ Because that’s what’s right for the character." - Vince Gilligan
"I intended to be overweight. I wanted to be a guy who went to seed, who didn’t care anymore. So popping out of that RV on the pilot episode and having my love-handles fold over my tighty-whitey underwear…it wasn’t the image that I really would like to present to the world! And yet you have to have the courage to do so.” - Bryan Cranston
Confidence, body positivity, and being a badass: the Bryan Cranston edition
“Look, I’m half-Italian, half-black. My name is Giancarlo Giuseppe Alessandro Esposito. I’m Italian.” It didn’t matter. I was asked to choose. And out of having to make that choice in so many different situations, I became an actor. Because I was constantly flipping between black and white, and the one thing that I missed then was being human.
- Season 1: I didn't know, I saw. Your haircut, the way you hold yourself, says military. But your conversation as you entered the room — said trained at Bart's, so army doctor. Obvious. Your face is tanned, but no tan above the wrists — you've been abroad but not sunbathing. The limp's really bad when you walk, but you don't ask for a chair when you stand, like you've forgotten about it, so it's at least partly psychosomatic. That says the original circumstances of the injury were probably traumatic — wounded in action, then. Wounded in action, suntan — Afghanistan or Iraq. You've got a psychosomatic limp. Of course you've got a therapist. Then there's your brother. Your phone — it's expensive, email enabled, MP3 player. But you're looking for a flat-share, you wouldn't waste money on this. It's a gift, then. Scratches — not one, many over time. It's been in the same pocket as keys and coins. The man sitting next to me wouldn't treat his one luxury item like this, so it's had a previous owner. The next bit's easy, you know it already. Harry Watson, clearly a family member who's given you his old phone. Not your father — this is a young man's gadget. Could be a cousin, but you're a war hero who can't find a place to live. Unlikely you've got an extended family, certainly not one you're close to, so brother it is. Now, Clara — who's Clara? Three kisses says a romantic attachment. Expensive phone says wife, not girlfriend. Must've given it to him recently — this model's only six months old. Marriage in trouble, then — six months on, and already he's giving it away? If she'd left him, he would've kept it. People do, sentiment. But no, he wanted rid of it — he left her. He gave the phone to you, that says he wants you to stay in touch. You're looking for cheap accommodation and you're not going to your brother for help? That says you've got problems with him. Maybe you liked his wife, maybe you don't like his drinking. Shot in the dark. Good one, though. Power connection — tiny little scuff marks around the edge. Every night he goes to plug it in and charge but his hands are shaky. You never see those marks on a sober man's phone, never see a drunk's without them. There you go, you see? You were right. The police don't consult amateurs.
- Season 3: There's an off switch.
sometimes I laugh when Steve is written as this total goody-two-shoes who’s obsessed with discipline and following orders when basically the entire script of Captain America is: “steve don’t do the thing - ” “I’M GOING TO DO THE THING”
this one time I was having sex and the guy was having trouble getting it up and I asked “have you disengaged the external inertial dampener?” and literally could not stop laughing and that’s probably why I don’t have sex more often
i think the heat is getting to me
so I was in the states recently and bought Avengers themed candy, and it seems that they want you take the Iron Man stick and dip it into the Captain America sugar and I don’t think I have to explain why that’s hilarious to me
What happened when the power went off at work today
- Me: OH, YOU THINK DARKNESS IS YOUR ALLY
- Me: YOU'VE MERELY ADOPTED THE DARK
- Me: I WAS BORN IN IT
- Me: MOULDED BY IT
Reporter: I have a question to Robert and to Scarlett. Firstly to Robert, throughout Iron Man 1 and 2, Tony Stark started off as a very egotistical character but learns how to fight as a team. And so how did you approach this role, bearing in mind that kind of maturity as a human being when it comes to the Tony Stark character, and did you learn anything throughout the three movies that you made?
And to Scarlett, to get into shape for Black Widow did you have anything special to do in terms of the diet, like did you have to eat any specific food, or that sort of thing?
Scarlett: How come you get the really interesting existential question, and I get the like, “rabbit food” question?
The respect given to you if you’re a man in the entertainment business, and the respect given to you if you’re a woman in the entertainment business: all perfectly summed up in one idiotically thought out line of questioning.
