Anybody can be unhappy. We can all be hurt. You don’t have to be poor to need something or somebody. Rednecks, hippies, misfits – we’re all the same. Gay or straight? So what? It doesn’t matter to me. We have to be concerned about other people, regardless.
I’ve reached a point in my life where it’s the little things that matter… I was always a rebel and probably could have got much farther had I changed my attitude. But when you think about it, I got pretty far without changing attitudes. I’m happier with that.
I’m not an Adonis, that’s for damn sure. I’ve never really thought of myself that way, and it doesn’t matter to me. My favorite actors aren’t Adonises. Dustin Hoffman is a flawed-looking man; he’s amazing to me. Tom Hanks is flawed-looking; people love him. Same with Gene Hackman.
Get busy with the issue! In this regard, time is not friendly…nor should it be.
I’m still a person, a human being, no matter what religion I am.
It’s a matter of keeping people on a spontaneous edge.
I just like seeing the world, and it doesn’t matter where.
Life, the universe and everything is a matter of time.
Physics is the story of matter, with strings or particles.
Do you know how there are moments when the world moves so slowly you can feel your bones shifting, your mind tumbling? When you think that no matter what happens to you for the rest of your life, you will remember every last detail of that one minute forever?
The czar always got his dues, no matter if it ruined a family.
As an actor, you want new challenges. U.S. TV can be very formulaic. So when something gets a reaction, as ‘The Slap’ has, that’s great. The sense I get is that it’s not about me or my performance. More than anything it’s the subject matter that people are focused on.’
