Snakes are sometimes perceived as evil, but they are also perceived as medicine. If you look at an ambulance, there's the two snakes on the side of the ambulance. The caduceus, or the staff of Hermes, there's the two snakes going up it, which means that the venom can also be healing.
Sometimes people think I'm wearing a wig when I'm not wearing a wig, and then sometimes they think I'm not wearing a wig when I am wearing a wig.
Zoology has always been interesting to me. Nature is fascinating.
I invite the entire spectrum, shall we call it, of feeling. Because that is my greatest resource as a film actor. I need to be able to feel everything, which is why I refuse to go on any kind of medication. Not that I need to! But my point is, I wouldn't even explore that, because it would get in the way of my instrument.
Everything we do impacts someone else's life.
I try not to be proud. I try to actively attack pride.
Personally, my interests are ancient history and ancient civilizations. In my own life, I'd like to go to places like Easter Island.
I think it's no secret that I've tried to take chances in my career and also in my life, and I believe to not live in fear.
I think the paparazzi might have chased me out of Los Angeles.
There's a fine line between the Method actor and the schizophrenic.
I have dogs, and it's no secret that I find reptiles interesting, but the thing about reptiles is that they really just wanna be left alone, and I understand them. It's, 'Don't pick me up, stop holding me, don't look at me, just leave me alone.' I have to admit, sometimes I feel like that.
Film acting is one of the only industries where you're criticized for working hard. In any other industry, it's considered a quality and something to behold.
I think what makes people fascinating is conflict, it's drama, it's the human condition. Nobody wants to watch perfection.
One of the things that's interesting to me is I find things like caffeine and stunts actually relax me. When they're putting a bit of gel on my arm and lighting me on fire, or when I'm about to go into a high-speed car chase or rev a motorcycle up pretty fast, I find everything else around me slows down.
Every great story seems to begin with a snake.
I want to always find new ways of reinventing myself.
To be a good actor you have to be something like a criminal, to be willing to break the rules to strive for something new.
I'll speak for myself, but there's a lot of humor to be found in sarcasm and darkness. You talk to any paramedic, they survive by developing a pretty off-kilter sense of humor.
I use technology for communication, but I don't have a Blackberry or an iPhone. I use an outdated cell phone, but I'm fine with it.
I am not a demon. I am a lizard, a shark, a heat-seeking panther. I want to be Bob Denver on acid playing the accordion.
