One of the great gifts we get (as actors) is that we live on, frozen in time, forever... Truly, the most fulfilling moments I've ever had are on the stage. If you can't have that as an actor, then you might as well at least have that other great thing, which is immortality.
Comedies always need to be provocative and catch your attention in a way that dramas don't have to.
Directors are not worried about casting beautiful women, but they are not sure that they want to cast great-looking men. My looks have prevented people from seeing my work.
The Brat Pack is timeless.
My deep dark secret is that I was a nerd in school. I liked the theater. I liked to study. I wasn't very good at sports.
I love acting so much that I don't want to give that up.
The minute you start making calculations about what people will think of you as a person based on your work as an actor, you're on the road to becoming a bad one.
