Quotes

When I read that part in the script where it said, "Luke, I am your father" I thought, "He's lying. I have to see how they carry this lie out".

The world is filled with violence. Because criminals carry guns, we decent
law-abiding citizens should also have guns. Otherwise they will win and the
decent people will lose.

If you take a villain like Thulsa Doom or Darth Vader and have fun with it that destroys the credibility of the character.

Before my grandpa built his own church, we went to the neighboring town, and it was a white community. You know, up north, mostly middle European people and Indians, Chippewa Indians. We were welcome to that church, but once we got in they didn't know what to do with us.

I don't ever want to be a sentimentalist. I prefer to be a realist. I'm not a romantic really.

I love to see actors' work. I love to surf channels late at night and accidentally run into movies I hadn't seen before. It makes me very proud of the profession.

Actors never discuss future plans.
