It's a character that I always found really likable. I'm fond of Zorro because he was a popular figure who worked for the people.

Some suggestions for you :

I've done many different movies in many different contexts.

I try to teach my kids to be open.

I've never liked watching real-life couples play couples onscreen or onstage. It takes me out of the story.

I think I'm a romantic person, yeah.

Sometimes I have wrinkles, in the morning. It depends on what kind of night that I had. I accept myself and the way that I am growing older. I have eye bags and some people have proposed to me to take them out but I said no.

I used to be scared of women. When I was very young they terrified me, but discovering the female universe was incredible and still is to this day, as you never stop learning about them.

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.

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?'

There's something happening in the world that didn't happen before. We are acting like one big brain.

I divide my time badly.

I always feel that art in general and acting in particular should make the audience a little uncomfortable, to slap them and wake them up.

I get caught up in my bubble of reading, writing, or music.

I did my first movie, 'The Mambo Kings,' in America without speaking the language. I learned the lines phonetically. I had an interpreter actually just to understand directions from my director.

I wouldn't want my daughters to date a guy like me. I was dangerous around women in my twenties. I'm terrified that they might end up with someone like me.
