I really just can't watch myself. I see all the machinery at work and it just drives me nuts.

I like racing but food and photos are more thrilling. I can't give them up. In racing you can be certain, to the last thousandth of a second, that someone is the best, but with a movie or a recipe, there is no way of knowing how all the ingredients will work out in the end. The best can turn out to be awful and the worst can be fantastic. Cooking is like performing and performing like cooking.

A man with no enemies is a man with no character.

People stay married because they want to, not because the doors are locked.

To be an actor you have to be a child.

Every time I get a script it's a matter of trying to know what I could do with it. I see colors, imagery. It has to have a smell. It's like falling in love. You can't give a reason why.
