Be careful of success; it has a dark side.
'Butch Cassidy' was the only film I ever enjoyed making.
I started as an actor in the theater playing a lot of character parts, and suddenly, I found myself in this place where it felt like I was getting locked into a kind of a stereotype, and it did bother me.
I never had a problem with my face on screen. I thought it is what it is, and I was turned off by actors and actresses that tried to keep themselves young.
When I was a kid, nobody told me I was good-looking. I wish they had. I would've had a better time.
If you could ever do a project that really has magic in it, and justifiable magic, you should do it.
Hollywood was not a place I dreamed of getting to. I never could take seriously the obsession people have about being a celebrity or getting to Hollywood - I was born next door.
