It’s true that I’ve made bad decisions, but I didn’t realize it was so obvious.

my favorite quote by Nathan Young in Misfits
→ “We’re young. We’re supposed to drink too much. We’re supposed to have bad attitudes and shag each other’s brains out. We are designed to party. This is it. Yeah, so a few of us will overdose or go mental. But Charles Darwin said you can’t make an omelette without breaking a few eggs. And that’s what it’s all about breaking eggs! And by eggs, I do mean, getting twatted on a cocktail of Class As. If you could just see yourselves! It breaks my heart. You’re wearing cardigans! We had it all. We fucked up bigger and better than any generation that came before us. We were so beautiful! We’re screw-ups. I’m a screw-up and I plan to be a screw-up until my late 20s, maybe even my early 30s. And I will shag my own mother before I let her… or anyone else take that away from me!” - (Season 1, Ep. 6)
I think I’d be able to see people’s farts, right, so that when you’re in a lift, you can turn around and go ‘it was you, don’t try and deny it, because I can see it!`
- Robert Sheehan on If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
“Do you know who was a cracking man to work with and a hoot altogether? Ben Barnes. He’s a delightful, delightful man and what was lovely about working with him in ‘Killing Bono’ was that we were playing brothers who were in each others shadows and we basically lived like that for seven or eight weeks. So much so that we even started finishing each others sentences. I’d consider him a real friend now, after that.”
- Robert Sheehan on working with Ben Barnes (x)
He’s so much fun and he’s so funny and he’s very,very bright and horribly talented. he can do comedy to serious, he can turn it on and off like a switch and he does’t have to try at all, seemingly. and that was really annoying it felt like a younger brother who’s slightly more talented than you.
“Actually I’m Robert Michael Adam Sheehan. My confirmation name is Adam. I did pick it, but only out of the confines of the Bible. They went, “Look, it has to be from the Bible because they’re holy names.” Ezekiel doesn’t roll off the tongue as well as Adam, though. Or Barabus, that would be a good one, but he was evil in the Bible, wasn’t he? What if I was like, “I’d like to be Robert Satan Sheehan, please?” I’m from Ireland, obviously.”
I’ve discovered that Iwan sleeps with his mouth open. So at lunch times I liked to creep into his trailer and just hang my testicles over his mouth, so that his breath— it’s just a lovely warm feeling all over the back of my scrotum.
Benedict Cumberbatch. He’s like hot chocolate; you watch him and think, “You’re actually delicious.
‘When I was a kid I was relatively well-behaved.’ He gives a slow grin. ‘But I have been a bit of a scamp in the past. I mean, young fellows being young fellows, they get into scraps and trouble every once in a while, but I’ve never been arrested. I remember a big, organised fight when I was about 13 on a green near where I lived. It was weird, it was like: choose a side, you’re on one side or the other. There were guys in cars with the stereos going and all of a sudden a cop car drove up and my dad got out and yelled, “Robert!” and I went, “I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry,” and got the hell out of there. That was the nearest I got to Dad putting the cuffs on me.’
(on the phone) Oh, hey Dad, it’s your son, Nathan. So here’s the thing – my brother came to see me today, but I haven’t got a brother. So who’s this? It’s my brother? What the f*ck! Anyway, so uh, call me.
