There is a certain combination of anarchy and discipline in the way I work.
It's important not to indicate. People don't try to show their feelings, they try to hide them.
One of the things about acting is it allows you to live other people's lives without having to pay the price.
Some people say, New York's a great place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there. I say that about other places.
There's nothing more ironic or contradictory than life itself.
You learned the two greatest thing in life, never rat on your friends, and always keep your mouth shut.
I think Hollywood has a class system. The actors are like the inmates, but the truth is they're running the asylum.
You'll have time to rest when you're dead.
When you make a drama, you spend all day beating a guy to death with a hammer, or what have you. Or, you have to take a bite out of somebody's face. On the other hand, with a comedy, you yell at Billy Crystal for an hour, and you go home.
I don't like to watch my own movies - I fall asleep in my own movies.
These movies are like my children, except you can't remake my children in 3D to push up the grosses.
The talent is in the choices.
I go to Paris, I go to London, I go to Rome, and I always say, 'There's no place like New York. It's the most exciting city in the world now. That's the way it is. That's it.
I didn't have a problem with rejection, because when you go into an audition, you're rejected already. There are hundreds of other actors. You're behind the eight ball when you go in there.
