I try to make two movies a year. To me, that's not too much. On top of that, I like to work.
There were two movies that asked me to go to Australia or New Zealand for long periods of time. One was 'Lord of the Rings' and one was 'The Matrix.' But I was actively involved at that time raising my family, and I couldn't really take that time out.
I wanted to make an image for myself as an outlaw type. A kind of rock 'n' roll sensibility.
As I got older, with my work, I became aware of the responsibility of film, and I feel one of the best ways I can apply myself as an actor, is to go beyond movie stardom and celebrity.
