I've made so many mistakes. But it is my feeling that you learn from failures, so I welcome them as often as I can.
I've turned down jobs because I've said, 'Honestly, I can't find my way in. I can't do it. I love you, as a director. I think the script is good. You deserve better than I think I can do.'
I mean, you always want everybody to pat you on the back and tell you you're wonderful every time you do something; I think that's human nature.
My entire life has been an attempt to get back to the kind of feelings you have on a field. The sense of brotherhood, the esprit de corps, the focus - there being no past or future, just the ball. As trite as it sounds, I was happiest playing ball.
