I wouldn’t want my daughters to date a guy like me. I was dangerous around women in my twenties. I’m terrified that they might end up with someone like me.
We are now integrated into American society and I don’t like the word fashionable because fashionable means that it’s going to pass. It’s not like that anymore.
I think I’m a romantic person yeah.
Picasso is a character that has pursued me for a long time and I always rejected. He deserves a lot of respect because I am from Malaga and I was born four blocks from where he was born.
I get caught up in my bubble of reading writing or music.
There are some movies that I would like to forget for the rest of my life. But even those movies teach me things.
Making movies is difficult and you get disorientated sometimes – even when you’re working with fantastic talent.
I’ve done many different movies in many different contexts.
Listen I think movies serve many different purposes from those movies that are frivolous and just an entertainment to movies that just go to exploring the complexities of the human soul. Everything is valid if it’s done with honesty and dignity and I actually do both of those types of movies in my career.
I cry a lot you know. Which is very difficult for a man to recognise but I do. I cry in movies you know just watching movies.
There are some movies that I would like to forget for the rest of my life – really! But even those movies that I’d like to forget teach me things.
I drink a bucket of white tea in the morning. I read about this tea of the Emperor of China which is supposedly the tea of eternal youth. It’s called Silver Needle. It’s unbelievably expensive but I get it on the Web.
I do yoga every morning then I run for half an hour and take a sauna.
Sometimes I have wrinkles in the morning. It depends on what kind of night that I had. I accept myself and the way that I am growing older. I have eye bags and some people have proposed to me to take them out but I said no.
I wake up every morning look in the mirror and ask ‘Am I a sex symbol?’ Then I go back to bed again. It’s stupid to think that way.
It was an honor and privilege to arrive to this country 16 years ago with almost no money in my pocket. A lot has happened since then.
One thing I have clear is that I don’t want to work for money anymore.
I used to be scared of women. When I was very young they terrified me but discovering the female universe was incredible and still is to this day as you never stop learning about them.
I love the diversity of America. I love the plain normal sense of humor Americans have. It is not wicked like in some countries. And I also love how new America is.
