I guess subconsciously that all the great people you work with have an influence on you.
I have a theory that I really want my kids to know - the only coloration that they make between dad being in films and reality is just a lot of people doing a lot of hard work.
I think the beauty of working with young people is they remind you of the spirit of acting and it's just a big play.
I'd say I'm the opposite of someone that has the urge to stand in front of strangers and make them laugh, but the idea of getting up and telling a story and people finding it amusing always appealed to me.
I'll give you a list of a hundred ways that I'm more likely to be injured than belting around a race track with people who know what they're doing. It's not a place where I feel I'm in unnecessary danger.
If you can jump up onstage and make people laugh, shouldn't you also be able to inhabit a character?
It's always bitterly disappointing to people to see how normally one can live.
The longer you have something, the stronger the bond. That's true with people as well as things.

When I was a kid, I would do stupid things on my bike. I'd jump any ramp, I'd jump over people, I'd jump over things - always crashing, never hurting myself badly but always wanting to take physical risks.
You'll read things and say, this is a really good project and it's probably going to be a hit, but I can see 20 other people playing that part. You have to have some sense of ownership to do a good job and be married to it for ever.
