To be a good actor you have to be something like a criminal, to be willing to break the rules to strive for something new.
Hollywood didn't know if I was an actor or a nut or if I was this crazy character I was playing. I had developed an image of being a little bit unusual, different and wild.
I try to do as many stunts as they'll let me do. I think it's important for an audience to feel that the actor's really doing it.
It's a family that's loaded with grudges and passion. We come from a long line of robbers and highwaymen in Italy, you know. Killers, even.
I try not to be proud. I try to actively attack pride.
I mean, I've acted professionally since I was 16.
There's a fine line between the Method actor and the schizophrenic.
Zoology has always been interesting to me. Nature is fascinating.
Science fiction is a way that I can go into the abstract, go into the imagination, and audiences are still willing to go along for the ride.
