Not all journalists are really journalists. They ask such stupid questions sometimes, especially the newer ones, and because... these people can't tell if you're joking around, you just can't have any sense of humour; you really can't.
I think that if you can achieve a balance, then you appease a lot of yourself and your career and what it takes to maintain in this business for a while.
Not like Chinese food, where you eat it and then you feel hungry an hour later.
As soon as I became proactive in producing my own stuff, I started getting other roles.
Mafia guys are all just insecure people who want their money. They're like little seven-year old kids when they don't get their way. I knew guys like that growing up in New Jersey.
Suddenly playing the charming bad guy was my thing.
My dad said, 'Go to college and take whatever you want.' So, I went to the University of Miami. When I got up to the line at registration, I saw that you had to take math and history. I said, 'There's no way I'm taking math and history.' And right next to it was the line for the drama department.
I haven't seen about half the movies I've done. You know, you've got to make a living, but some I don't get a good vibe with.
I was on a soap opera before that for three years, where I was the nicest guy on earth.
I'm emotionally in tune with my feelings and what people mean to me, and I have no trouble saying it and relating to it.
What I really am is a homebody. I was a homebody even before I had a family. My days are filled with home stuff.
It would be nice to do a movie where I didn't have to choke the girl to get her.
Well, for Blow I had to age from 20 to 60, starting out in shape and then later putting on fat pads.
People have all these preconceptions about me. Whereas if you look at the roles, Henry Hill was the nicest guy in 'Goodfellas!' I was a nice guy too in the comedy 'Heartbreakers.' And I was a really sweet father to Johnny Depp in 'Blow!'
You know, it was a small, independent movie and with Paramount becoming involved, it was obviously a good thing, but you can't put a round peg in a square hole.
