Now, being on the cover of Vanity Fair is as important as being in great movies. The lines are very, very blurred.
I try to stay under the radar.
It's interesting to help someone find their vocabulary. There would not have been a De Niro without a Scorsese.
Everybody acts like they're in a movie in most movies. That's why they stink.
I have a problem with the blatant celebrity exhibitionism that happens in this business and being sold purely as a brand.
It's easy to be a movie star. The shoes are already there. They just put you in the shoes.
Pacino's always played the suffering prince. I just find that interesting.
When you look at some of the most respected actors there are and the crap that they're in... it didn't used to be that way.
When actors talk about research, they're just patting themselves on the back.
You can take a handful of dollars, a good story, and people with passion and make a movie that will stand up against any $70 million movie.
Training Day was such a Hollywood movie; I didn't like it.
You know how many movies it took Tom Cruise before he was making 5, 6 million dollars? It probably took a billion dollars in box office.
I don't find movies interesting. I just want to do the movies that made me interested in getting into movies, and they're few and far between.
I don't have a problem with fame. I got into this business intending to be very successful, but I wanted it to be at my price.
I don't like people who use the press to advance themselves in a way that they haven't earned as an actor, performer or director.
