My theory is that if you look confident you can pull off anything - even if you have no clue what you're doing.
I've got cousins galore. Mexicans just spread all their seeds. And the women just pop them out.
I don't put weight on fame, and having people around me just because I am famous makes me feel really bad about myself.
In Eastern culture, people see ghosts, people talk about ghosts... it's just accepted. And in Western culture it's just not.
I'm all about supporting anyone whose art is also the way they make their living.
If I didn't get a job, between 16 and 18, that wasn't significant, I was just going to go to college. I didn't want to be a struggling actor at 36 with five kids, doing something I hated. You see the story so much. It's such a vicious business to be in when you're not meant to be in it.
Movies are the shadiest business in the world.
Most nights I end up wearing a wife beater T-shirt and boxers.
Living in L.A., everyone likes to mold you and change you. I don't care about fame, I don't care about being a celebrity. I know that's part of the job, but I don't feed into anyone's idea of who I should be.
Every time I'd get a critique or some redirection, I'd always just take it very personally. Now I have no problem with it.
I wish there were two of me and 48-hour days so I could get everything done. But for me, I have to not try and think that everything has to be 100% perfect all the time and leave room for error. As long as my kids feel loved and a priority, everything really is secondary.
The time I'm not spending with my kid has to be worth it, so when I sat down with my agents after I was ready to go back to work, I told them: It's all about the directors.
My parents were young and liberal and knew I was going to drink anyway, so they let me do it at home.
Everyone in my family is an artist in some capacity whether they're musicians, painters, or sculptors, so it's in their blood.
It feels like I'm starting to come into my own in terms of where I want to go artistically, toward more complicated, interesting characters.
