1I've never been one who initiates things, I was always scared not to be liked. I always bet on delicateness and kindness, without thinking that beauty necessarily opens all doors. I always hated those who wanted to impress with cars and clothes.
2About wife Chiara: "She is my existential lighthouse. Sentimental serenity, for me, is very important: as an actor, I have to move the audience and so I have to feel good about myself and my life. It's thanks to Chiara that I do well my job. (...) What the best about our relationship is syntony we have: Chiara and I understand each other immediately, we talk about everything, we confide with each other about everything. when they offered me to go to the US, I accepted it only because she did agree with my choice. She knew how much it would have been hard for us to leave Italy, but she wanted to give me support. (...) My wife and I are bound by a common view of existence, starting with the concept of family, that's sacred for us and that we defend with all our strength."
3Anything I can do to make the world a better place, even the smallest thing, is something feeding my soul.
4The Mafia is something that the Italians are not really proud of.
5Actually, I had my first fan the other day. I was reading a magazine and she was looking at me. `Can I ask a favor?' And I say yes, what? `Can you sign me an autograph' and I was oh, yes. And really I was dying blushing because I never expect.
6"Meeting her was a sign of the destiny, and I thank God for that: our union is cemented by the same principles, by the same ideals of life." talking about his wife Chiara Giordano.
7"He gave me serenity, security. There is him, before anything else." talking about his first child.
8What's better:man or woman? love: the women, to born: I am satisfied to have been a man.
9"He gave me serenity, security. There's him, before anything else." on having a child.
10"To meet her was a sign of destiny, and I thank God for that: our union is cemented by the same principles, by the same ideals of life." talking about his wife Chiara Giordano.
11I'll tell you, the love scene is always very, very difficult to shoot because you have all the crew around you and looking at you and when you are kissing someone, they say, `Don't put your hand on my shoulder because you're touching my hair' and something like that. And I say okay, okay. When you push the cheek, they're like, `Don't push the cheek' and I say okay. And you have to be very romantic and you say, okay. How can you enjoy the love scene?
12I spent the first 14 years of my life swimming, which is very important to me. Wherever I'm filming I always try and find a swimming pool.
13Sometimes people of success are the loneliests ones, they are in front of the TV with the remote control in their hand and the phone never rings...
14"Our son (with his wife) was born in the water, in our home's bath tub. Every evening, if I'm in Rome, we take the bath together. The love for water unites us. Now he is older than one year old and like a foreigner to whom I'd like to make known my world." - talking about his first child Alessandro-Leon.
15It's always important what you're doing, it's not important where.
