I have trouble with direction, because I have trouble with authority. I was not a good Marine.
I was trained to be an actor, not a star. I was trained to play roles, not to deal with fame and agents and lawyers and the press.
The difference between a hero and a coward is one step sideways.
I do not like assassins, or men of low character.
If you look at yourself as a star, you've already lost something in the portrayal of any human being.
