(On his decision not to reprise his role as Batman in Batman Forever): I was waiting in line for another movie and just kind of poked my head in... watched about 10 minutes. I saw enough to know that I made the right decision.
There comes a point in your life when you realize how quickly time goes by, and how quickly it has gone. Then it really speeds up exponentially. With that, I think you start to put a lot of things into context; you start to see how huge the world is, and really, the universe.
High energy creates more energy, more energy, more energy. It kicks off synapses I guess. It opens up your brain and you think of one thing after another thing after another. You can really open yourself up comedically, which is fun.
Anyone can be a celebrity now; this is not a big deal anymore.
Generally, I move in the direction of art.
I come from a background where you don't really talk about yourself much.
I liked 'Robocop' because of the director, and it was an intelligent, big-action studio movie.
People always make these generalized statements about Hollywood, and there's all kinds of people in Hollywood.
