* BritishAccents: Has one of the most recognizable and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HFIQIpC5_wY most imitated]] Cockney accents in the world. He has stated that he believes his big break in ''Zulu'' occurred only because the American director didn't have the built-in class prejudice that so many British people had.

* AwesomeDearBoy: Why he accepted roles in ''Journey 2: The Mysterious Island'' and ''The Muppet Christmas Carol'', which he says was a joy to make.



* FakeAmerican: In ''Hurry Sundown'',[[note]] In preparation for this film, he was advised by Vivien Leigh to repeat the phrase "four-door Ford" in an American accent.[[/note]] ''Film/TheCiderHouseRules'', and ''Film/SecondhandLions''.



* MoneyDearBoy:
** The reason he accepted parts in many terrible films like ''Film/JawsTheRevenge'' and ''Film/OnDeadlyGround''.
--->"First of all, I choose the great roles, and if none of these come, I choose the mediocre ones, and if they don't come, I choose the ones that pay the rent."
** He later admitted to regretting not leaving the set of ''Jaws: The Revenge'' to accept his UsefulNotes/AcademyAward for ''Film/HannahAndHerSisters''.
** Of ''Film/JawsTheRevenge'', he once said: "I have never seen it, but by all accounts it is terrible. However, I have seen the house that it built, and it is terrific."



* StarMakingRole: The title role of ''Film/{{Alfie}}'' made him well known internationally.
