Action films are an extension of Greek myths which have been around since Homer's "The Iliad". Everybody's life has some mythical quality. You struggle against obstacles, you fight to get to a higher level and there are great loves.
I usually pick up a scar a movie.
My problem is that people get intimidated by someone big and beautiful like me. They hate to think I can be smart as well.
I've never had a good line. Well, maybe 'I must break you'.
I've just tried to play my own game and treat everybody with respect. No matter who they are. That is something I'm proud of and I feel it will always pay off.

I wanted to become an engineer, or get a masters in business. But I had the opportunity to do films when I was about 25 and it was a great way to express myself.
