Well, of course, every actor’s limited, and I am the first one to admit it, in all honesty, when I think that I’ve hit the wall a bit. I’m not ashamed at all, I think it’s a process that you have to go through. That’s how you learn.
It took me a long time to find out that I was born to be an actor. It was the last thing on my list, although my list was very small. I didn't know what to do. But kids weren't supposed to know what to do back then; we were all cute and we'd find out what we'd do later in life.

The funny thing is most people don’t approach me because they are scared, and that’s fine, I want to keep it that way. But the thing is if you’re not scared or get over it you learn that sometimes what you’re scared of is really what you shouldn’t be scared of.
It doesn’t matter who’s directing, or who’s doing the movie; there are a ton of things that can go wrong, and they do all the time. So you just have to figure out how to get through it, and then how the director finally puts it together, and then see what the audience takes from it. That’s the most important thing to me.
I’m way bigger than people think I am. I’m way bigger. I’ve been underrated all my life, and that’s fine. I have privacy. I can walk the street without being hassled. I can be a regular guy. The price to give that up is so horrible. When you become a part of the hysteria – it’s not completely in my hands – you have to hide.
I was convinced that acting was for fools. I was on the stage when I was eight with my father, he was playing one of those Greek blind guys that sees things and warns people, whilst I was in a blue skirt. I think there were 5,000 people in the theatre, it was ridiculous.
