I only do what I like to do.

I'm very bad with improvisation. I hate it.

You know, I don't support esoteric approaches to acting.

Becoming an actor is like becoming a father. It's not hard to become one. Making a life of it is the challenge.

I'm trying to be very aware of not repeating myself.

It would be completely laughable if I claimed I was always motivated by the pure craft of acting and that recognition doesn't play a part. Of course it does - that's human nature. The bohemian artist who exists only for his art, it's a myth.
