On working with Woody:
"It was a good experience. Like Mr. Eastwood, he was great, just this... There was a lull; a quiet came over the set when he came on, and he would start: 'Okay, I see the camera here. Liam, I think you're coming down the stairs. I'm going to follow you. You see Judy [Davis], and...' 'Okay.' 'Okay, and let's do it.'"
On discovering Woody's affair:
"There's a scene where I'm going down on Judy Davis, right. Judy and I are in bed — obviously covered — and as I'm going down, Judy's having this monologue in her head. And the crew are all ready and we're waiting for Woody. No show. Anyway, he came out after about twenty minutes and said, 'Okay. Camera starts on Judy. Liam, I want to just see the top of your head. Okay, we know where you're going…'So there was no apology; nothing. What happened: his lawyer had gotten in touch with him to say Ms. Farrow had found naked photographs of her adopted daughter."
On his alcohol addiction:
"I gave up drinking about a year ago. I was drinking too much. It started [when] my wife died. Never at work, never would do it like that, but this time of night? Sitting with you, I'd easily have - I'd be on my second bottle. Before we finished, I would have been halfway down a third."
