My first Broadway show was with Elizabeth Taylor and Maureen Stapleton. Maureen Stapleton, a legend in the theatre; Elizabeth Taylor, a legend, period.
Acting had become something I did and did well - but didn't particularly enjoy.
Because of fear, and the way my career went, I started playing a lot of villainous roles.
'Breaking Away' was a great experience. It's the kind of movie that engenders a lot of goodwill from people.
Character actors have a long shelf life.
I don't know why every actor doesn't do more plays.
I guess once you've seen Uma Thurman beaten up endlessly in the 'Kill Bill' movies, you think, 'If Uma can take it, what's the matter with me?'
I had a handle on satisfaction, and I loved my career, but I didn't really know what happiness was. So I started on this quest to have a happy life.
I'd always keep going back to the acting. Once the rent was paid, and the phone bill, the next money you had was for acting classes.
I'm not getting involved in sports anymore, except on film. I'm not agile unless a camera's going.
I've done a lot of stage in my life, but I never had to dominate a stage for three hours.
I've done a lot of things with theater that I'm very, very proud of.
I've had a 'Zelig'-like career. I pop up unexpectedly. I'm always kind of around.
I've never chosen or rejected a role because of money.
In my drive to be the perfect artist, I've left a lot of living to the side.
