When I say I hate nostalgia, I hate things set in the recent past where everything is shiny and new.More Chris O\'Dowd [10/24/2013 08:10:25]
I think there's something in the fact that it's hard to be good looking and funny. You have to have an oddball quality; people have to sympathise with you to find you funny.More Chris O\'Dowd [10/24/2013 08:10:33]
Being at the genesis of the creative process is definitely something I want to keep doing. It's just such a great buzz.More Chris O\'Dowd [10/24/2013 08:10:40]

I don't think the public here buy this idea that women and men speak different comedic languages.More Chris O\'Dowd [10/24/2013 08:10:12]
I mean, I'm an uncle of seven or eight, and I don't mind it at all! Kids are great. Kids are the best six-hour experience you can have!More Chris O\'Dowd [10/24/2013 08:10:19]
I think I'm going to keep my Irish accent forever now in any movie I make, because chicks dig it and that's all I care about now!More Chris O\'Dowd [10/24/2013 08:10:28]
I would be nothing if it wasn't for the town where I grew up and the people who gave me my inspiration.More Chris O\'Dowd [10/24/2013 08:10:35]
I'd like to think that I'm getting slightly more mature as time goes on, but I don't know if my fiancee would necessarily agree.More Chris O\'Dowd [10/24/2013 08:10:55]
I'm probably working on three different scripts at any time, so there's never a time where I've got nothing to do.More Chris O\'Dowd [10/24/2013 08:10:05]
People in England talk about stupid Hollywood idiots, but the industry attracts some of the cleverest people in the world.More Chris O\'Dowd [10/24/2013 08:10:38]
The bottom line is that female writers aren't being given enough opportunities by male producers.More Chris O\'Dowd [10/24/2013 08:10:47]
I don't know if I'd do an action movie because I don't know if I could keep a straight face; honestly, I just think it's so silly. Like, I love watching them but I can't imagine me doing one.More Chris O\'Dowd [10/24/2013 08:10:54]
I get asked all the time if I want to do more dramatic acting, and I really doubt that dramatic actors get asked if they want to do more comedies. I don't really know why that is.More Chris O\'Dowd [10/24/2013 08:10:03]
I feel like I need to start wearing a T-shirt saying 'This is not a photo opportunity'. People are so lovely but you do find that when you're out you spend 40% of your time posing for photographs.More Chris O\'Dowd [10/24/2013 08:10:10]
I'm never overawed by a situation and I think that's because I've always looked several years older than I am. So because people were treating me like I was 40 when I was 29, I've always felt in control of a situation. People used to say, when you're 32, you'll look 32. I'm still waiting for that moment, where my age catches up with my appearance.More Chris O\'Dowd [10/24/2013 08:10:20]

When I was a kid, I wanted to be serious, like Daniel Day-Lewis. No one really dreams of being a comic actor, do they? Now I realise how stupid that is - and it's because comic acting isn't taken seriously enough. It's a discipline. You know instantly - either you're funny and getting the laughs, or you're not.More Chris O\'Dowd [10/24/2013 08:10:45]
Well, when you're the youngest of five, parents kind of lose interest more and more through the children. I think my eldest brother was under loads of pressure to do something amazing with his life, but by the time I came around they were like, 'Well, let's hope he doesn't kill a guy.'More Chris O\'Dowd [10/24/2013 08:10:54]
When I was about 13 I realised girls weren't going to kiss me because I was a gigantic, weird looking creature from the depths. I was like 6 ft. aged 11.More Chris O\'Dowd [10/24/2013 08:10:05]
