Whenever I think of the high salaries we are paid as film actors, I think it is for the travel, the time away, and any trouble you get into through being well known. It's not for the acting, that's for sure.
There are people who drove me crazy, but they got the job done. And when I see that person again, I nod my head. Respect.
One of my gripes about movies is that people take them so seriously, and the moneymaking aspects are so brutal.
The studios don't seem to foster good writing. They're not so interested in that, but they're more interested in what worked most recently. They're definitely very serious about making money, and that's not a wrong thing, but you don't have to make money the same way all the time.
