You can say anything you like about Guy Pearce but he is an honest man. Here is some of his truthful quotes:

Guy Pearce on not being a man of too many words.

I've not often been a man of many words. I've never considered myself to be overly articulate. I do feel more comfortable acting something out than I do explaining something or whatever.

Guy Pearce on coming home.

The thrill of coming home has never changed.

Guy Pearce on his friends.

I don't have many friends. Most of them are gay and I get on much better with women.

Guy Pearce on relationships.

When you've had a relationship with anybody in your life and you both know what that relationship is, you don't have to do anything to prove to anybody that you've had that relationship. It just exists.

You meet these people who are confident all the time. They annoy me. And I wonder if it's because I'm envious or if it's because they're shallow.

I'll have a different answer tomorrow than I do today.

Guy Pearce on 1000 words and a picture.

I think that you can say something in one line with a look that you might need three lines on a page for normally.

Guy Pearce on real life and real people.

I always look at films as real stories with real people in real situations. That's why I struggle with the whole notion of calling someone the 'good guy' or the 'bad guy,' because I think we all have the potential to do good things and all have the potential to do bad things.

Guy Pearce on being realistic in movies.

Ultimately the most challenging thing, always, is to just be convincing.

I just can't talk about things before I do them, because just for me... I give energy away before I put energy into the job.

I'm far more comfortable in my 40s than I ever was.

Guy Pearce on being relaxed in his creative pursuits.

I can be completely indulgent and spend as many hours and days or weeks as I like on one thing. Writing music and sitting in my studio, just pottering with ideas, it's a lot more personal and creative for me, I don't feel restricted.

Guy Pearce on unremembered actions.

Just because there are things I don't remember, doesn't mean my actions are meaningless. The whole world doesn't just disappear when you close your eyes, does it?

Guy Pearce on trying to be original.

I'm constantly trying to be as original as I can.

Guy Pearce on good scripts.

I feel I do my best work when it's all there on the page, and I feel that the character is very vivid as I read the script and I'm not having to create stuff and try to cobble together something. If I have to do that, then I don't entirely trust what I'm doing.

Guy Pearce on taking this seriously.

I'm definitely not nonchalant. I have to leave nonchalant at home when I'm working on something, otherwise, I just don't feel like I'm committed, and I've gotta be fully committed.

If I'm exhausted, physically and particularly emotionally, I can't tell what's good and I can't tell what's bad and I'm useless.

Guy Pearce on the timing of success.

Success comes in waves.

Guy Pearce on parties and schmoozing.

I've always been resistant to parties and schmoozing.

Guy Pearce on being insecure.

The movie industry is very competitive, and if you're like me and you suffer from your own insecurities about whether or not you're any good, that can be troubling.

Guy Pearce on having an addictive personality.

My problem is I'm an addictive personality. I can't have one coffee. I can't eat one piece of chocolate.

Guy Pearce on blokey talk between blokes.

I don't really relate to certain blokey men who just want to talk about blokey things. I never really know what to say and I always feel I have to act blokey in order to have them not say, 'You're a weirdo.'

Guy Pearce on female level communication.

I am geared towards communicating on a female level.

Guy Pearce on independent films.

The thing I've come to learn is that what's great about small independent films is the intimacy and the communication that occurs when you're making them.

Guy Pearce on money vs creativity.

Working on films where the money's more important than the creativity, I just get a bit freaked out by that. I just don't feel comfortable.

Guy Pearce on exploring human psyche.

I'm interested in the psychological exploration of human nature, and it just happens to come in the form of film-making.

Guy Pearce on the people who join law enforcement.

The majority of people who join law enforcement are doing it for good, moral reasons, but then there are the few who get through, where you go, 'Whoa, hold on a second. What's this guy doing here?'

Guy Pearce on some men.

Men often still expect women to be under their thumb.

Guy Pearce on his desire to be a smartass.

I wish I had the ability to crack-wise, generally. You know, without getting punched. There's no way I could do it while getting beaten up. Definitely.

Growing up, I was a kid pretending to be an adult.

Guy Pearce on his bodybuilding.

I used to work out in the gym a lot when I was younger. I was a competitive bodybuilder when I was 16 or something crazy like that for a short period of time. So, the gym is quite familiar and I know what I'm doing there.
