Personal Quotes (6)

As actors all we do is pretend. People can make acting into a science all they want, but it's just make believe.
My name is spelled with two e's, two f's and another e, and nobody ever spells it right.
First time I ride an elephant, I'm galloping down this river bank with, like, twenty other ones galloping behind me, and I'm going, I'm holding onto whatever bugs, hair, or whatever I can hold onto, going, 'Don't fall off, what ever you do. Because these guys are not going to stop, just because I fall off. They don't know I'm Tarzan.'
Acting is a silly way to make a living.
I look at acting as a job; it's what I do for a living. I figure that if I can just stay clear about who I am and keep working and have other things in my life that mean something to me like friends and family, I'll at least maintain some sanity.
When one of the characters I play walks on screen, the audience doesn't immediately say, "This is the good guy." I enjoy characters like that. They're never all good or all bad. I don't like playing heroes who are good through and through, because nobody is. It's more fun to play people who have had bad in their life. I can relate to that. Akira Kurosawa always said he liked his villains more than his heroes.
