Behind every great man is a woman rolling her eyes.
I wake up some mornings and sit and have my coffee and look out at my beautiful garden, and I go, 'Remember how good this is. Because you can lose it.'
That's the trouble with being me. At this point, nobody gives a damn what my problem is. I could literally have a tumor on the side of my head and they'd be like, 'Yeah, big deal. I'd eat a tumor every morning for the kinda money you're pulling down.'
I love playing ego and insecurity combined.
Originality is really important.
I don't think human beings learn anything without desperation. Desperation is a necessary ingredient to learning anything or creating anything. Period. If you ain't desperate at some point, you ain't interesting.
Life opens up opportunities to you, and you either take them or you stay afraid of taking them.
It was such a leap in my career when 'Truman Show' came along. It's always been a long process for me insofar as recognition goes, but that's OK because you appreciate it when it comes.
One thing I hope I'll never be is drunk with my own power. And anybody who says I am will never work in this town again.
A lot of good love can happen in ten years.
Ya know what I do almost every day? I wash. Personal hygiene is part of the package with me.
I'm the first to admit this whole salary thing is getting out of control. In the final analysis, it's still about the work.
It's nice to finally get scripts offered to me that aren't the ones Tom Hanks wipes his butt with.
My family kinda hit the skids. We were experiencing poverty at that point. We all got a job, where the whole family had to work as security guards and janitors. And I just got angry.
I used to draw a lot. If my mother would ask me to do something else, I'd have a hairy conniption. I'd just go crazy.
I tend to stay up late, not because I'm partying but because it's the only time of the day when I'm alone and don't have to be performing.
My focus is to forget the pain of life. Forget the pain, mock the pain, reduce it. And laugh.
I praticed making faces in the mirror and it would drive my mother crazy. She used to scare me by saying that I was going to see the devil if I kept looking in the mirror. That fascinated me even more, of course.
You know, I live a monastic lifestyle. No, I do. I do live in extremes, basically. I go back and forth. Once every six months, I'll have a day where I eat more chocolate than has ever been consumed by a human being.
It is better to risk starving to death then surrender. If you give up on your dreams, what's left?
