I was in a bar and I said to a friend ‘You know we’ve become those 40-year-old guys we used to look at and say ‘Isn’t it sad?’
I know what my limitations are as an actor but my strength is putting myself into a well-written part. When I get in trouble is when I have to fix it or when I have to carry it on personality.
It’s incredibly unfair. You don’t see a lot of 60-year-old women with 20-year-old men onscreen.
I was watching ‘Up In The Air’ and I thought ‘Jesus who’s the old gray-haired guy?’ And it was me. I never wear makeup for movies and now it’s starting to show.
I get asked a lot about getting into politics. I say ‘Take a look at politics. You tell me what seems appealing about that.’
I’d think’In a relationship we should never have his kind of fight.’ Then instead of figuring out how to make it work I looked for a way to get out of it. The truth is you shouldn’t be married if your that kind of person.
I don’t believe in happy endings but I do believe in happy travels because ultimately you die at a very young age or you live long enough to watch your friends die. It’s a mean thing life.
The last real movie stars were probably Redford and Newman. And things were different then. There wasn’t this amazing amount of magazines and information about them.
I grew up in the world of bad television on my dad’s sets and then as a young schmuck on dating shows and so on.
The only failure is not to try.
