List of Bob Hoskins quotes.

You don't end up with a face like this if you're hard, do ya? This comes from having too much mouth and nothing to back it up with. The nose has been broken so many times.


You reach a point where the cameo is the governor. You go in there for a couple of weeks, you're paid a lot of money, everybody treats you like the crown jewels, you're in and out, and if the film's a load of shit, nobody blames you, y'knowwhadimean. It's wonderful.


On getting his first role: "I was three parts pissed. We were going to a party. And this bloke comes around and says: 'Right. You're next. Have you seen the script?'...And I got the leading part."
