In America most everybody who's Italian is half Italian. Except me. I'm all Italian. I'm mostly Sicilian, and I have a little bit of Neapolitan in me. You get your full dose with me.

The actor becomes an emotional athlete. The process is painful - my personal life suffers.

Shakespeare's plays are more violent than 'Scarface.'

I don't need bodyguards. I'm from the South Bronx.

I was not prepared for fame. It hit me hard, and I did not have the capacity to cope.

When I was a younger actor, I would try to keep it serious all day. But I have found, later on, that the lighter I am about things when I'm going to do a big scene that's dramatic and takes a lot out of you, the better off I am when I come to it.
