The first perk of theatre is the girls.
Love is the one emotion actors allow themselves to believe.
I lost interest in firearms because we had a dog that was scared to death of the sound of a rifle shot.
I don't think movies or television have any basis in reality at all. It's all just pretend. That's what's fun about it.
You know, when you choose to make your living as an actor, it's all fine and good to look at it as some kind of artistic endeavor.
Acting is easy and fun. You earn a lot of money, and you bang out with girls. The profession is given tremendous significance within our society, but it's not really worthy of it.
Sometimes with people their work is the most important thing to them, and sometimes the work enables you to do other things that are more important to you. I probably am closer to that.
I'm not eager at all to present my life out there for public consumption. I like to do one or two films a year and then do what is absolutely obligatory in terms of promoting them. My life outside of films is vital to me.
If I don't need the money, I don't work. I'm going to spend time with my family and friends, and I'm going to travel and read and listen to music and try to learn a little bit more about how to be a human being, as opposed to learning how to be somebody else.
Acting is a great way to make a living, especially when I consider what my alternatives were and probably still are. I mean, you are only making movies. It is a lot less pressure than being a surgeon; although it seemed like the only other thing that I was qualified for was manual labour.
