"Question. “Do you ever get writer’s block?”
Answer. “Writer’s block? I’ve heard of this? This is when a writer cannot write? Then that person isn’t a writer anymore. The job is getting up in the morning and fucking writing. If you get up in the morning and you cannot write, you’re something else, aren’t you?”
...We were going to do Transmetropolitan years ago, Patrick Stewart—Patrick Stewart is not like you and me. There’s a certain eccentricity that British actors of a certain age have. We went to a fancy restaurant to talk about Transmetropolitan and the maitre ‘d came out because You Do Not Belong. You do not smell of money.
“Patrick’s got all the tics of that particular generation of actors. They laugh with pleasure. ‘Sit down, have some champagne, what do you know about killing rabbits?’
“’I live in Yorkshire, Warren, and the foundations of this house are being eaten by rabbits. Tell me how to kill them, Warren, I know you know.’
“’Spider Jerusalem is my role model. I was in line to get my medal from Prince Charles recently and I was in line thinking ‘What would Spider Jerusalem do?’ He’d headbutt the bastard! So I wasn’t listening to what he was saying because I was trying not to headbutt the bastard!’”
“All the actors of his generation, utterly, utterly bugfuck.”
...Question: “The dynamic between men and women in your work—the lack of romance, it seems like there’s no room for it. Can you explain a little?”
Answer. “Do I come off as an animal if I say romance only happens in romance novels? Relationships between men and women are a lot more complex than that, usually a lot more edgy and nervous and spiky than that, and I don’t think it’s honest to write the kind of romances—Hollywood romances don’t get anywhere near the human condition.”"
