Black history is American history.

My parents were working in a hospital in Memphis. But I didn't live there for any length of time that I remember. The first thing I remember is the town in Mississippi that I live in now, Charleston.

I gravitate towards gravitas.

But I can say that life is good to me. Has been and is good. So I think my task is to be good to it. So how do you be good to life? You live it.

Learning how to be still, to really be still and let life happen - that stillness becomes a radiance.

It's what I learn from the great actors that I work with. Stillness. That's all and that's the hardest thing.

And that if you become a star, people are going to go to see you. If you remain an actor, they're going to go and see the story you're in.

Man is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance.

This kid came up with Napster, and before that, none of us thought of content protection.

And finding the hat, I always like to find the hat. And then props just dress the set. It's all fabulous.

If you're playing somebody who is not you, then you can imagine that you are that person. You can feel like he feels, move like he moves, look like he looks - in your own mind.

I do know there are a lot of people who seem to be in my corner, and that's, of course, wonderful. I'm really more interested in the nomination than in the award, because I think the nomination just puts you within a group of outstanding actors.

I always tell my kids if you lay down, people will step over you. But if you keep scrambling, if you keep going, someone will always, always give you a hand. Always. But you gotta keep dancing, you gotta keep your feet moving.

My approach to acting is that I am totally intuitive. I read the script and I get it. If I don't get it, I can't do it.
