You can't live up to what people expect. Nobody can. But I guess that's my problem not theirs.
Mad Max movie quotes: I'm scared, Fif. It's that rat circus out there, I'm beginning to enjoy it. Look, any longer out on that road and I'm one of them, a terminal psychotic except that I've got this bronze badge that says that I'm one of the good guys.
I think the 'Lethal Weapon' movies contain my favorite performances. It sounds really crummy, I know, but although the work doesn't look hard, it's difficult to create 'effortless' on screen.
I don't think of myself as either American or Australian really, I'm a true hybrid. It's a good thing for me because both of them are really good countries.
I could easily not act again. It's not a problem.
I'm always writing. There is always a story brewing in my head.
It's all happening too fast. I've got to put the brakes on or I'll smack into something.
Hollywood is a factory. You have to realize that you are working in a factory and you're part of the mechanism. If you break down, you'll be replaced.
