You can ask anyone who knows me, I've never said a racist or prejudiced thing in my life.
One out of 100 citizens of the U.S. is going to prison, and it's not that the system is making criminals, it's that it's making criminals better criminals. We're breeding them like rats and it has to change.

There's nothing good about divorce.
I love that Bob Dylan asked me to be in the first movie he wrote.
I think part of my reputation has to do with the difficult roles I've played. Actors do tend to get identified with their characters.
