I have to tell you, you can't have an ego when you're an actor. A lot of actors have them, but in reality most of those people are just sensitive artists dying for a hug and a compliment.
Suddenly, I'm in movies that people are excited about, and that is a nice change.
I gotta make money - it all tends to disappear in this field.
When I was in jail I could only think about what the average person has to go through - the person who has no power to go to the press or no money to hire a lawyer.
It's probably a bit of a power trip when you befriend somebody enough that they trust you to tell you things.
The only way change will ever happen is if we speak up, and we have to know that it actually has an impact. Because we have a lot more power than we think we do, I think.
W.' is not necessarily a political film, but it was sort of a contrasting reality for me to get into George W. Bush as a character because of how I felt about his administration before I started making the film.
Look, I'm going to take full advantage of this situation just because I love working with great filmmakers. But I've been around for a while, and I'm not going to play into the hype that I'm some great, you know, discovery.
I covered my face because they had taken my wisdom teeth out.
George W. Bush brought a lot of minorities into his administration, which was a positive thing, and they had some issues that they wanted to press, but 9/11 really gave them direction. It gave them a purpose.
I've been given an amazing opportunity and I could not be more grateful. But I also know that all this will eventually die off. It's not real. It will go away and then you'll go away and then, I don't know, I'll be left sitting in some English hotel room.
I was invited to a couple of races, but I was doing a play in New York.
