God gave me a great body and it's my duty to take care of my physical temple.

In an action movies you act in the action. If it's a dramatic film you act in the drama.

What is a movie star? It is an illusion. It was everything I ever wanted to be, but it became a kind of shell, non? It was what made me famous and got me women. But it wasn't real.

What really helps a guy to become an action hero today is the directing of the movie. All those fast cuts.

I'm a big traveler these days. I was in Hong Kong. I live there. I was just in Belgium with my parents and now I'm on my way to North America. You will find me all over.

I now truly believe it is impossible for me to make a bad movie.

My time of martial arts was traditional.
