Every day I've got to be thankful that I am alive, and you never know - the cliche is, I guess, you could get hit by a bus tomorrow, so you'd better be at peace with whatever you got going at the moment.
I just like to do work that inspires me, and I don't pay any attention to whether it's a high- or low-budget movie.
When I was a teenager I loved acting, but I really just loved it for myself. I didn't like the fact that anyone else saw the work I was doing. When I moved to New York, I started to realize that I wanted people to see the s tuff that I was doing, and I wanted it to mean something to them.
The most valiant thing you can do as an artist is inspire someone else to be creative.
There's no royalty in America, so people deify actors.
When I'm on set, I do whatever I can to find my focus.
I was such a big Dustin Hoffman fan when I was young.
Normally, it's difficult for me to watch a movie that I'm in.
