Quotable Quotes:

"For a while, I wore a toupee because I thought it would help me get work. But it didn't, so eventually I threw it away and said, "They'll have to take me the way I am." (IM DB)"

"I'm a professional actor. I get the part. I read the script. If I decide to do it, I learn the lines. I have no theory about acting. For me, there is no Method. I just do it." (IMDB)

"No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path."
