Quotes

#Quote
1 From Men's Health: Trusting my own instincts has led me to great places. When I was younger, someone telling me I couldn't do something was like saying, 'Try.' You get mad at them and yourself, because they make you think, I don't know if I really can do it. Maybe they're right. Then the anger feeds you, and next thing you know, you've done exactly what they said you wouldn't do, and a little more.
2 From Men's Health: Go back to what's good, what's certain, what's always there. You woke up today. Just start walking. Whatever it is, it'll pass. Time doesn't go backward. That's the one real blessing. It happened; it does you no good to worry. Keep it movin'.
3 I want to be remembered as a great actor - and a shining example of humanity.
4 I honestly believe there are good things happening in this world, and I'll spend most of my time trying to find them and bring them to light.
5 From people magazine 2000: "Real men know how to listen, and real men know how to be honest."
