I can't play a loser - I don't look like one.

I'm notorious for giving a bad interview. I'm an actor and I can't help but feel I'm boring when I'm on as myself.

John Wayne was then the Hollywood legend, and I was on screen with him. The guy is an angel. He saved my life back then when no other film maker wanted to know me.

I have no philosophy about acting or anything else. You just do it. And I mean that. You just do it. However, I can say that with ease after thirty-five years.

Television is the monster of all time that eats everything and everybody.

I am not happy that I am sick. I am not happy that I have AIDS. But if that is helping others, I can at least know that my own misfortune has had some positive worth.

The most dangerous thing for an actor is to refuse to listen to anyone else, to feel you know more than anybody.
