British actor Ray Winstone has dismissed method acting as unnecessary, because it's impossible to proactively research truly evil roles. Winstone was struck by the versatility of his Sexy Beast co-star SIR Ben Kingsley, mainly because he enjoyed watching the GANDHI Oscar winner play a foul-mouthed, crazed mobster. And Kingsley's performance reminded Winstone that acting is about bringing out what is already within - no matter how dark it is. He says, "How do you research being a child-molester? A wife-basher? Do you go and do it? "In Sexy Beast, Ben Kingsley played a really nasty gangster, and I thought, 'Hang on a minute, this is Gandhi.' "But he said to me, 'This is part of me. There's a dark side within all of us.'"
