    Ich mach mal den Anfang...

    "I can't understand why he isn't more confident about himself. He says it's because he's English, but I don't think that's enough of a reason."

    Joely Richardson (Filmpartnerin in Maybe Baby)
    Daily Record, 2000
    "Girls love him. Hugh is a very attractive, 5exy, thoughtful man."

    Ben Elton (Drehbuchautor)
    Daily Record, 2000
    "I was miserable and self-absorbed. It's actually selfish to be depressed and not try and do anything about it... I know a lot of people think therapy is about sitting around staring at your own navel - but it's staring at your own navel with a goal. And the goal is to one day to see the world in a better way and treat your loved ones with more kindness and have more to give... It wasn't that I couldn't talk about my problems," he says, "I used to bore my friends stiff. But because money has changed hands, I don't feel I have to entertain or make myself sound better than I am." In his depressed moods, he can, he says, "glower for hours. I'm amazed that people put up with it. I would cling to unhappiness because it was a known, familiar state. When I was happier, it was because I knew I was on my way back to misery. I've never been convinced that happiness is the object of the game. I'm wary of happiness.''

    Hugh Laurie über seine Depression
    The Evening Standard, 2000
    "He is very lovable. He is one of those rare people who manages to be lugubriously 5exy - like a well-hung eel."

    Emma Thompson
    The Evening Standard, 2000
    "He's a remarkable man to know. I owe him everything. He's the real thing. Gifted, phenomenally intelligent, and wise."

    Stephen Fry
    The Evening Standard, 2000
    "I always felt with Hugh that there was a secret waiting to be let out. He thinks a great deal. He is not good at selling himself."

    Ben Elton (Drehbuchautor)
    The Evening Standard, 2000

    Was für eine tolle Idee! Ich poste mal schnell was, aber da kommen sicher demnächst noch einige!

    "We had different strengths, says Fry. " Hugh was very good with dustbins." Laurie displays instant pride. "I emptied the dustbins all the time," he beams. "Obsessive," snaps Fry. "Yes," ponders Laurie, "there is something obsessive about it. I hate it when it starts frothing over the top. 'Get that bin liner out there' was my motto. But we were both slobs."

    Stephen Fry & Hugh Laurie über Hausarbeit als sie zusammen gewohnt haben
    Rage Magazine, 1991
    "Ah, well, I don't want to bandy names about. I, I don't feel I can say. She might be horrified and embarrassed by being linked with me."

    Hugh Laurie über seine Beziehung zu Emma Thompson
    The Washington Post, 1992
    "To be able to write about PG Wodehouse is the sort of honour that comes rarely in any man's life, let alone mine. This is rarity of a rare order. Halley's comet seems like a blasted nuisance in comparison. If you'd knocked on my head 20 years ago and told me that a time would come when I, Hugh Laurie - scraper-through of O-levels, mover of lips (own) while reading, loafer, scrounger, pettifogger and general berk of this parish - would be able to carve my initials in the broad bark of the Master's oak, I'm pretty certain that I would have said "garn", or something like it."

    Hugh Laurie über P.G. Wodehouse (Autor von "Jeeves and Wooster")
    The Daily Telegraph, 1999
    "Glancing over my school reports from the year 1972, I observe that the words "ghastly" and "desperate" feature strongly, while "no", "not", "never" and "again" also crop up more often than one would expect in a random sample. My history teacher's report actually took the form of a postcard from Vancouver."

    Oh, ihr habt ja schon ein paar schöne rausgesucht. Da will ich doch auch mal was beisteuern

    "Mr. and Mrs. Little have won tonight!"

    Hugh Laurie bei der Golden Globe-Verleihung 2006, bei der sowohl er als auch Geena Davies, seine Partnerin aus den Stuart Little-Filmen, ausgezeichnet wurden
    "Last night we went out to a bar that was positively heaving with humanity, and I thought 'we'll never get in'. But the maitre d' took one look and - chop, chop - 'Right this way, Mr. Laurie. Here's your table, Mr. Laurie. We're here to serve, Mr. Laurie.' I thought 'Well, perhaps people are watching.' "

    Hugh Laurie über die unerwarteten positiven Nebeneffekte des Erfolgs
    TV Guide, 31.10.2006
    "I can see in some ways I am playing a 5exy character. The idea of a damaged genius is an interesting, intriguing character, but it has nothing to do with me. I think whoever is playing this role would be in the position I am now."

    Hugh Laurie über seine neue Rolle als 5exsymbol
    OK Magazine, 09.10.2006
    "How did I do that? It's a long story. You know, kids, boys, explosive things. It will happen"

    Ich liebe das Interview wo Stephen und Hugh über Hausarbeit erzählen.
    Die beiden dürften sofort in meine WG einziehen!!!

    "BEING God, I would like to look like Robert Mitchum, but with the voice of Orville - a booming 'godly' voice is so 1990s. I would also redress the inequalities between men and women by giving men much larger ..... and fewer of them. Women have a small number of eggs, so it is a great burden on them to decide who they are going to allow to impregnate them. If men had bigger ..... they would have to be more responsible and thoughtful about where they deliver them. I would like to have a Mrs God to share my duties with. On the whole I am content with the way of the natural world, but I would expect that she would want to change a few things, such as colour schemes. Does the rainforest have to be green? Surely lilac would be much nicer."

    Hugh Laurie zur Frage: "What would you do if you were God?"

    @U-fisch: Das sind doch mal interessante Pläne für das Dasein als Gott

    "Even my wife doesn't think I'm 5exy, it's a miracle we have children."

    Hugh Laurie
    Daily Record, 18.01.2006
    "I think they're OK about it. They might have been a little nervous to begin with, but I kept telling them that nobody has a greater interest in not falling off than I do."

    Hugh Laurie über die Sorge der House-Produzenten wegen seiner Leidenschaft fürs Motorradfahren
    Celebrity Rides, CTW Feature, 19.09.2006
    "Hugh co-directs every show we do. It's not an exaggeration. He really does say 'Are you cutting from that shot to this shot? Because if so, that would be awkward.' Are you kidding me? I'm thinking about what I'm having for lunch!"

    Hier ein paar Zitate, wo mir leider die Quellen fehlen.

    "I'm sort of reasonably good at a lot of things but not great at anything yet. I'm a reasonably good writer. I don't write like Martin Amis, but I wish I did. But I can probably act better than Martin Amis. But I can't act as well as Kenneth Branagh, but I can probably play the piano better than Kenneth Branagh, but I can't play the piano as well as Dr. John. I may be able to cook better than Dr. John."

    Mit diesem Thread verliebt man sich ja gleich nochmal in Hugh.
    Ich finde es erstaunlich, wenn man durch all die alten Artikel geht, wie seine Freunde immer wieder davon sprechen, dass er viel mehr aus sich machen könnte, ernste Rollen spielen und so weiter. Mit House ist ihm das ja jetzt gelungen und es ist schon fast komisch, dass das der gleiche Mann aus diesen Interviews von damals ist. Er ist schon irgendwie eine tragische Figur. Und doch so liebenswert.

    "As I get older I want the world to think of me more as an actor because there's only so long I can go on doing this sketch kind of comedy. It's an age thing: you start off writing sketches about bank managers and bishops and then you wake up one morning, read a story in the paper about a bank manager aged 35, and it suddenly hits you: 'I could be a bank manager!' So the fun of doing it has gone."

    Hugh Laurie
    Woman's Weekly, 1992
    "But he insists he could never manage a leading romantic role where he would have to say 'I love you', since he's almost never said that in real life. Nor could he break down and sob on stage, since he can't remember the last time he actually cried."

    Julia Beasley (Journalistin)
    Woman's Weekly, 1992
    "I come from a family that was generally happy but not very expressive. We didn't talk about each other much except in a flippant way. We didn't touch; I didn't kiss my mother as a child. It only stuck me in my mid-twenties that it's a standard thing to kiss your mother, and then we started doing it by agreement. Is that unusual? I suspect it is."

    Hugh Laurie
    Woman's Weekly, 1992
    "I have no life; I have no existence. I am a division of the Stephen Fry Group."

    Hugh Laurie
    Woman's Weekly, 1992
    "I used to be funny. I used to know I could be funny. Until I started doing it for a living. Now I'm not so funny anymore."

    Hugh Laurie
    GQ Magazine, 1992
    "Hugh torments himself that other's lives are richer, fuller, better than his own. He believes he is a colourless person about whom anecdotes are never told. But he won't use his talents. He is a brilliant musician, he plays the piano and the guitar. He has a fantastic singing voice which he'll never use, to my despair. And all because he's terrified of appearing cocky."

    Stephen Fry
    GQ Magazine, 1992
    "He could be, if he wanted, a serious actor. His range is enormous, he has great intelligence."

    Ben Elton (Freund und Drehbuchautor)
    GQ Magazine, 1992
    "The point being that Laurie will fight for others, but not on his own behalf. Which is why a comic partnership suits him perfectly. Comedy provides the outlet for his feelings of inferiority and the partnership releases him from the glare of the spotlight. He is, by temperament, the antithesis of a prima donna. He could never fly solo."

    Suzie Mackenzie (Journalistin)
    GQ Magazine, 1992
    "I think she likes me. Which is great, because I've gone through a lot of my life thinking that people didn't like me."

    Hugh Laurie über seine Frau Jo
    GQ Magazine, 1992
    "She had moments of not liking me... quite protracted moments... When I say moments I use the word broadly to cover months."

    Oh ja! Manche Aussagen von Hugh gehen mir echt nahe. Klingt verdammt pathetisch, is aber so. Es gibt viele Schauspieler, die ich richtig genial finde, aber bei Hugh Laurie ist es einfach noch ein Stückchen mehr. Da interessiert mich auch der Mensch dahinter. (Was ja eigentlich totaler Quatsch ist. Was geht mich der Mensch hinter seinen Rollen an.) Ich rede mich hier um Kopf und Kragen... *argh*

    Hugh Laurie ist einfach eine verdammt interessante Persönlichkeit!
    Punkt, Schluß und Streusand drüber.


    "I probably use humour to try and avoid getting close to people, in a funny sort of way. Making people laugh is sort of cowardly. It can be an intimate thing, but it also distances you from the person somewhat."

    "People say 'you've written books, you've been on TV and in films,' but I've never really been able to see that as a big achievement or get a sense of great joy out of it."

    "I still amble along and I don't have answers. I never have had. In fact, that would be my epitaph: I just don't know. Because, let's face it, who does? Either that or: Here lies Hugh Laurie. He always cleaned up after himself."

    Ach, gar nicht um Kopf und Kragen geredet! Geht mir doch genauso.
    Hier noch zwei besondere Zitate, bzw. Beschreibungen:

    "Hugh is an excellent pianist - in fact, we first met him sitting by himself in the Footlights clubroom, gently tinkling on the piano. We re-tuned the piano, cleared the mess up and gave him a part in the Footlights pantomime. He says things like 'Yuh', 'Uh huh', 'Ermmmmmm' and 'You didn't want a cigarette, did you?'. He was scheduled to be in the Cambridge Glandular Fever team against Oxford, but unfortunately a sudden attack of rowing forced him to drop out. He reads Archeology and Anthropology. HIS IDEAL HOLIDAY: Somewhere totally new and different... like the Archeology and Anthropology Department."

    Nette Kollegen (vielleicht auch von Hugh selbst, wer weiß)
    Cambridge Footlights Programmheft zum Stück "Nightcap", 1979
    "I get up at 5.26 every morning, two hours before Kingsley Amis, and make Mary a pot of tea. I read all the papers in the world seven times, have a more frugal breakfast than Malcolm Muggeridge, and aswer the 40,000 letters I receive each day. I'm in bed by 9.00 with a bucket of tea and Sonia. I'm rereading Proust at the moment and I think television is a corruptive influence."

    "One of my favorite moments in 'Star Trek' is when Captain Kirk looks out over the vast cosmos and says 'The three most beautiful words in any language are-', and of course your heart sinks because you think it's going to be 'I love you' or something, and he says, 'Please help me.' What a fantastic idea, that vulnerability and need is a beautiful thing. And actually House is a character in need - of human contact and some kind of redemption - and I think that 'Please help me' aspect is an important element of the show."

    Ich finde das trifft den Nagel auf den Kopf.
