I think it's really odd, too, that the public is so privy to how much money the actors make and what movies cost. It seems to me to be beside the point. When I go to a movie I really don't want to think about the money. I want to see the story.
I act probably a lot more than you see. I happen to choose movies that don't have much of a life, or I choose movies that are shown on cable instead of as features.
I would love to work more - I really would - but there is not a lot of stuff around and the stuff that is around is not very complicated; it tends to lie a little flat.
I've never had a career of that kind of box office power. I've always learned the hard way
In some ways, it would be nice to stay younger, but I feel pretty happy about growing older... Personally, I don't have a lot of the regular hand-ups with getting older that some people do. I've never tried to disguise my age. People find out anyway.
I get cold really quickly, but I don't care. I like weather. I never understand why people move someplace so that they can avoid weather.
More and more movies have been pressured to allow reporters and TV cameras to come onto the set while you're working, and I find that a real violation
In storytelling you kind of put your nightmares up there, you put your dreams up there and people can see them better because they can stand outside of it and look at it and recognize themselves inside it. So I feel that that in and of itself is a spiritual thing.
I have tried to be as eclectic as I possibly can with my professional life, and so far it's been pretty fun.
I really admire people who are extraordinarily tolerant and patient.
