You are always away from home, as a movies actor. Look at me now. You can be stuck in a hotel, several thousand miles away in a whole different time zone, and it is never glamorous. You can't sleep, you put on the television in the middle of the night when you can't understand a word, and you make phone calls back home which don't really give you the comfort they should.
Movie acting suits me because I only need to be good for ninety seconds at a time.
I've had some success in movies, so I really don't think about success. You like to have it, but I'm not desperate for it.
I think midlife crisis is just a point where people's careers have reached some plateau and they have to reflect on their personal relationships.
When I work, my first relationship with people is professional.
'Groundhog Day' was one of the greatest scripts ever written. It didn't even get nominated for an Academy Award.
I've been lucky, I've had movies that made a lot of money, so I don't feel like I have to kill every time out. I don't want that pressure. I don't need it.
