This industry has been really good to me. It's been a great life. I'm not through yet. I'm ready when you are, Mr. DeMille.
My father was grounded, a very meat-and-potatoes man. He was a baker.
It was a challenge, to work with Oliver Stone.
I've got a great sense of humor.
I'm the slowest driver in the world.
I'm always cast in these strange men... that's not me, really.
I worked with Steven Spielberg on Amistad... he seemed so very secure in himself that he let me do things.
I never make conscious decisions.
I love life because what more is there.
I like the good life too much, I'm not good at going on stage night after night and on wet Wednesday afternoons.
I know that the arts are important. I'm not denying that, but I can't associate myself with all the claptrap that goes on around it.
I have a punishing workout regimen. Every day I do 3 minutes on a treadmill, then I lie down, drink a glass of vodka and smoke a cigarette.
I don't know what acting is, but I enjoy it.
I came here in 1974 to do a play, and then I went to L.A. I really like living in America. I feel more at home here than anywhere else.
And I love a scary movie. It makes your toes curl and it's not you going through it.
Little islands are all large prisons one cannot look at the sea without wishing for the wings of a swallow.
False friendship, like the ivy, decays and ruins the walls it embraces but true friendship gives new life and animation to the object it supports.
When it comes to films, people often don't differentiate between the message of a bad central character and the message of the film itself. They are two separate things.
We are starting off with our own different characters and our own laws and everything, looking at Bruce Wayne and how he came to be the person that he was and how he comes to be this man that jumps around in the Bat suit.
My hope is that people will be repulsed by the character's complete lack of ethics and obsession with consumerism - that's what I was saying about the difference between the character's message and the film's message.
It's not who I am underneath but what I do that defines me.
It's about pursuing it rather than waiting to see what comes along. That's partly because I found myself getting typecast, as everyone does unless they pursue roles that are very different from what they've done before.
I've had some painful experiences in my life, but I feel like I'm trivializing them by using them for a scene in a movie. I don't want to do that. It just makes me feel kind of dirty for having done that.
I tend to think you're fearless when you recognize why you should be scared of things, but do them anyway.
I don't personally look to my own life experiences for answers about how to play a scene.
