I was aware that I was not getting the good acting roles because I was either too handsome, too pretty or whatever. I was being judged in ways that left me nowhere to go. You have to be patient.
I've been identified with James Bond or Thomas Crown for so long; suave, elegant, sophisticated men in suits. it's like you've been giving the same performance for 20 years.
Acting allows me to explore new worlds, to discover characters by delving into their lives, and ultimately to become someone else entirely.
James Bond is one of those heroes that all guys feel they could actually be like.
I paint landscapes, figuratives. I painted all my life. In fact, I started as a commercial artist.
I think that all the films I've ever made are personal, even James Bond, because it's so much of myself, so much of who I am as a man and as an actor. You have to invest yourself in every character that you portray.
When I found acting, or when acting found me, it was a liberation. It was a stepping stone into another life, away from a life that I had, and acting was something I was good at, something which was appreciated. That was a great satisfaction in my life.
I have not had any plastic surgery in any shape or form. No implants. And my hair is not dyed.
