I don't like to watch my own movies - I fall asleep in my own movies.” 8. I go to Paris, I go to London, I go to Rome, and I always say, 'There's no place like New York. It's the most exciting city in the world now. That's the way it is. That's it. 9. The characters that I play are real. They are real so they have as much right to be portrayed as any other characters. 10. I've never been one of those actors who has touted myself as a fascinating human being. I had to decide early on wether I was to be an actor or a personality. 11. Money makes your life easier. If you're lucky to have it, you're lucky. 12.

The few times I've directed, if someone comes up with something you missed, you're glad to hear that. 14. The mind of a writer can be a truly terrifying thing. Isolated, neurotic, caffeine-addled, crippled by procrastination, consumed by feelings of panic, self-loathing, and soul-crushing inadequacy. And that’s on a good day. 15. Sometimes if you have financial restraints, it’s a benefit. It forces you to come up with a more creative way.
