It's a great thing for an actor, who loves to do what he does, just to get a job!
I consider myself an artist. God granted me some gifts so that I could express myself artistically.
If the material is inspiring and motivates you, then it doesn't really matter what it is.
Even though some of the films I've made haven't been particularly commercial, I don't find them failures.
It wasn't a mission to be a rock star. It wasn't a mission of mine to even be a movie star. I just intended to be a good actor.
Hollywood is very much an industry town. Your life becomes caught up in all of the parties and this list and that list. That's not something that I respond well to.
Anybody, any actor, any director, will tell you that the hardest job in show business is doing a weekly series, because you work 16, 14, 15 hours a day, five days a week.
I like to have really fine things. I have a great appreciation for fine art, fine homes, fine wine, fine cigars and fine friends.
