Some suggestions for you :

When you go to the movie theater and the opening of this movie and you see the kids just cracking up with a character you are giving your voice to, you get goose bumps. It's so beautiful.

I don't like to over-intellectualize scenes that are working. I tend to think when you do that you may lose it.

Hollywood is a very strong machine that needs, and in... especially with female actors, fresh flesh. It's that cruel. But that's the way it is.

I don't think there is a guy that played more gay characters than I have done in my life.

You see a woman, 22 years old, going out with a guy over 60 - and it's kind of natural. But if it happens in the opposite direction everyone says, 'What is going on there?'

Making movies is difficult and you get disorientated sometimes - even when you're working with fantastic talent.

I like going everywhere. And I love starting new things.

I've always been an optimistic guy, to tell you the truth.

Cinema has opened a world of possibilities up for me.

I cry a lot, you know. Which is very difficult for a man to recognise, but I do. I cry in movies, you know, just watching movies.

We're living in hard times.

If bad things are going to be said about me, I have to bear that. If I don't understand that it's part of being in show business, then I'd better go work in a bank.

I think the problems with being older come when your body cannot do what your mind wants. Then, Houston, we have a problem.

The man who doesn't want anything is invincible.
