It wasn't until I went to college and I got my first motorcycle that I understood the thrill of speed.
I do practice martial arts, more as a recreational thing, but a lot of my friends have been heavyweight champions the in mixed martial arts world.
For the 'Riddick' character, I try to get as ruthless as possible, and I want to be a machine.
I am truly multi-racial. I never knew my biological father. I've always had less information than I would have liked to have had. All I know from my mother is that I have connections to many different cultures.
I shaved my head about 15 years ago and the first time I shaved it, I started running my hand through my hair and it was very therapeutic.
When I first did 'The Fast and the Furious', I didn't want there to be a sequel on the first one. I thought, 'Why would you rush to do a sequel - just because your first film is successful?'
I act because it's the one time I'm sure of my identity. There's no doubt. It's on paper.
You make movies for the people. If critics happen to like them too, well, that's a home run.
