Some suggestions for you :

I'd be more frightened by not using whatever abilities I'd been given. I'd be more frightened by procrastination and laziness.

Dakota Fanning is a child, but she is a wonderful actor. I don't know what a child actor is. She's an actor who's a child.

I wasn't allowed to go to movies when I was kid; my father was a minister. 101 Dalmatians and King of Kings, that was the extent of it.

I and haven't been unemployed for 20 years. I'm an exception to the rule.

I work hard for the audience. It's entertainment. I don't need validation.

I've worked with children all my life.

I've worked in a factory. I was a garbage man. I worked in a post office. It's not that long ago. I like to think that I'm just a regular guy.

My mother used to tell me man gives the award, God gives the reward. I don't need another plaque.

At the end of the day it's not about what you have or even what you've accomplished… it's about who you've lifted up, who you've made better, it's about what you've given back.

Where I think the most work needs to be done is behind the camera, not in front of it.

One good thing about acting in film is that it's good therapy.
