Human beings, from their own point of view, are very different than what people see.
I know I come off differently than I think of myself. I'm always surprised by what people say about me.
I was brought up by two people who just said, Whatever it is you're interested in, go do it. There is no winning or losing. You find out when you do it what the experience is.
I no longer look at my life and times in the motion picture industry as my career. I just look at it now as something I like and want to do.
Acting was something that just came along. But I made good money, so it wasn't something I was just going to put aside and pretend it didn't exist.
For guys playing sports at a high level, for money, I can't put my finger on it, but in a man's world of sport, there is something visceral to beating another man.
I played professional level sports. When you're playing for money, it's a whole other level.
I can evaluate a player in a very short period of time because I'm very close to that game, very educated in that game and played the game for a long, long time. I wasn't just a guy with talent. I learned a lot about the game.
I usually hang out on the set. I get to know everybody. I have a nice time with the other actors.
When I was working on my career, I was very aware of what I had done, what I wanted to do next. I'm having a good time just reading things that might be interesting to do.
If they're willing to pay you what you think you're worth for it, that's why an actor goes to work. A lot of times they want to pay you a lot for a picture you don't want to do.
Society questions the police and their methods, and the police say, Do you want the criminals off the street or not?
We are in a democratic society. It's our job to question.
I don't really look for specific types of projects any more. I'm not taking care of a career anymore. I'm just having fun acting.
I seem to have a knack for picking movies that go on to be cult favorites.
