When I was a rapper, the groupies didn't have to try too hard with me. Just show up at the hotel.

I've always looked at my career as an athlete would look at his. I won't play forever. Some don't know when to walk away, but the smart ones do.

All that running around in my underwear put money in my pockets. I can focus on working in interesting movies without having to worry about supporting myself.

Clooney is just a pretty boy, man, and that's it, OK? I carried him on my back long enough. I'm on my own.

I never lie. I believe everything I say, so it's not a lie.

Women don't get the credit they deserve.

I have more money now than I know what to do with.

I like to do projects I feel some connection to.

The environment I was raised in, you had to, to survive.
