If you become complacent, you start feeling entitled. I'm ready to go dig ditches if I have to. Whatever I gotta do to provide for my family. Whatever I gotta do to make sure that I do the best possible job at whatever wonderful opportunities I've been handed. Hide

He was "I'm Martin Scorsese... da-dee-da." He was pushing me in different ways. But it wasn't just Marty. The whole time I was in the character so I was mad at everybody. It was Leo, Matt and Jack. Fuck Jack too. We were able to laugh about it afterwards and we have a great relationship now and we're going to do other stuff in the future. Hide

I haven't had that. None of my nieces and nephews have seen Boogie Nights (1997), thank God! I haven't made too many PG movies. Hide

It also Show more [on Boogie Nights (1997)] It was a showstopper, and it had a good screenplay, a real story. It also helped Burt Reynolds' career, and now I can more sympathize with that, now that I've been in the business a fairly long time, so I can see how doing a comeback that's popular and also critically liked is something rare and real special.

I don't give a fuck what you did. You don't know what these guys did. For somebody go sit there and say my job was as difficult as being in the military? How fucking dare you, while you sit in a makeup chair for two hours? Hide

And also I'm not trying to imitate anyone or follow in their footsteps, because I know, Burt Reynolds was just one of the people that told me this, I know how you can only last in this business if you got something special to offer, just by being yourself. Imitators don't last, and I'd like to last. Hide

He should get a driver or go to Amsterdam where pot is legal. But my heart goes out anyone who goes to prison. I pray for him. Hide

There would have been a lot of blood in that first-class cabin and then me saying, "Okay, we're going to land somewhere safely, don't worry." We certainly would have tried to do something to fight. I've had probably over 50 dreams about it. Hide

You have to go and ask for forgiveness and it wasn't until I really started doing good and doing right, by other people as well as myself, that I really started to feel that guilt go away. So I don't have a problem going to sleep at night. Hide

I don't text that much or email. I like to sit down face-to-face and have a conversation with you. I'm old-fashioned. Hide

So Show more Actually, you English people always get to play Americans but they never let us play Englishmen. So if some great 18th-century English royal role came up, I could go over there for two years. I could become that character. And I tell you what, I'd kill it. Hide

I'm just not sure why he came to America in the first place. Man, we don't want your soccer. There's no way Americans are going to buy the idea of 90 minutes of running around without much happening. Thanks for trying guys, but we'll stick to baseball and basketball. Hide
