You have a little bit of talent, a certain amount of good fortune and a lot of hard work in pursuit of whatever truth you can find in it, and if you are really lucky, a terrific partner and I have that and those four things worked out for me.
But no, I love acting, it's a wonderful job.
I have been able to play a lot of guys and they have kept me working.
I have never planned anything. I have been doing this job for over 50 years. I have been paid to work with some wonderful people and it has been a huge gift, to me.
I just - I love my job. I love doing it. It's a passionate endeavor. And sometimes you can get close to something that you believe is the truth. The truth of something. Not all the time, but sometimes.
I don't think I'm an actor who takes their characters home with him. But I certainly do take the preparation home.
It's the things we love most that destroy us.
