I'm shy, paranoid, whatever word you want to use. I hate fame. I've done everything I can to avoid it.
Anything I've done up till May 27th 1999 was kind of an illusion, existing without living. My daughter, the birth of my daughter, gave me life.
As a teenager I was so insecure. I was the type of guy that never fitted in because he never dared to choose. I was convinced I had absolutely no talent at all. For nothing. And that thought took away all my ambition too.
I don't pretend to be captain weird. I just do what I do.
Life's pretty good, and why wouldn't it be? I'm a pirate, after all.
If you catch me saying 'I am a serious actor', I beg you to slap me.
I'm not Blockbuster Boy.
Am I a romantic? I've seen 'Wuthering Heights' ten times. I'm a romantic.
