I started out fighting before I was acting, actually, then got hurt and got into the acting.
I was very immature when I was young, and for me there was no balance. Everything was just all or nothing.
In Hollywood, you're always playing roles... It's like going through the motions. But in real life, it's like, you gotta take care of business. It's not just the movies.
I grew up in a gym in Miami, the one where Muhammad Ali trained. I had 142 amateur fights and lost three.
All I am hoping for is to be able to work - I think my best work is still ahead of me - I think all that I have been through in the last several years have only made me a better, more interesting actor.
It's no fun being a loser. Trust me.
The hardest thing in life to do is to change.
My dogs are more important than my family.
People are always afraid of the truth.
The ladies love me and I love the ladies!
