Playing by Heart (1998)$60,000


1[2008 interview] I have no regrets. There's only one real regret that I have, and that's that David Lean, who is my favorite director of all time, gave me the role of Nostromo in "Nostromo". And I went over there to Nice and met with him and got to ask him every question there was, spent an afternoon with him. Unfortunately, he wound up dying of cancer before we could shoot the film. That's my only regret.
2[observation, 2013] What's going on in television reminds me of what was going on in movies in the '70s, where the inmates had kind of taken over the asylum. And they're doing a lot of interesting things that I myself want to watch. The studios are just giving more of their tent-pole remakes of, you know, what's been successful before. I really don't find it all that interesting.
3I love being a dad. Basically it's the most gratifying, rewarding relationship in life. But at the same time, it certainly is the most challenging.
4[on The Express (2008)] At its core, it's about living your life with grace. If God bestows grace upon you, that you should live your life to its full effect. You know, Ernie Davis embodied that in his short life. He touched everybody around him.
5Movies seem to be happening to me rather than me going out there and saying, "Well, I'm going to play this.".
6I was a guy back in the '80s who was one movie away from a huge career, which at that time didn't happen. In the '90s, I worked a lot, but it was kind of, "get out there and dig and find things". Then I guess The Rookie (2002) and Far from Heaven (2002) were referred to as my comeback. I look around and a lot of the people I started in the business with, I have no clue where they are right now. So much of it has to do with luck and I have been extremely lucky, but a large part of it is also just hanging in there.
7There are three things being a celebrity is good for: raising money for charity, dinner reservations and tee times.
8[on his recovery from cocaine addiction] Well, a couple of times I had people come have a talk with me, but I was operating, for the most part, on two hours of sleep a night, and I realized, "I can't do this and last very long." So I cleaned up (in the early '90s) and then the jobs stopped coming. You clean up your life and think you're supposed to be rewarded for it, but things actually got worse. On the other hand, if I hadn't sobered up, I probably wouldn't be alive today.
9[2004] Being a celebrity couple is not so easy - it's double the publicity, and it's hard to have a private life...I have to tell you that I am happier with my life now then ever: I have a great son and a great career. I'm not only here, but here stronger than I've ever been - I have absolutely no regrets about the ups and downs of my career.
10I could never hold a job for more than three months, which works out well because that's how long a movie shoots.
11What, like I want to look like Dick Clark? No. I think I'll look great with liver spots.
