Comeback is a good word, man.
Some of your worst gangsters are guys who were very low-key.
A lot of those who let you down are those who seemed the closest to you.
It's no fun being a loser. Trust me.
I come from a violent background. So I became hard. I realised that I had made myself that way to deal with a feeling of abandonment and shame.
Wrestling and boxing is like Ping-Pong and rugby. There's no connection.
I don't care what Tom Cruise says about therapy.
It was either therapy or die.
The hardest thing in life to do is to change.
I always knew I'd accomplish something very special - like robbing a bank perhaps.
A lot of the stuff I am now seeing is edgy, raw kinda material.
Evan Rachel Wood is the best actress I've ever worked with, hands down.
I loved my mother, but I don't like her.
I love the first Godfather movie, part one. And two.
Sometimes, when a man is alone, that's all you got is your dog.
I was very immature when I was young, and for me there was no balance. Everything was just all or nothing.
When you lose everything, and I mean everything, you sit there in this empty room in the dark, and the only person who can get you out is you.
It's the formulaic studio movies the make money, and when they do, the actors in them are automatically movie stars.
Years ago I realized that maybe I made mistake, politically, when I turned a lot of that stuff down. I would go off to obscure places and make movies that six people went to see.
A couple of guys won Academy Awards for the things that I turned down. Today, after coming to terms with everything, after being in therapy for a long time-there are areas where I will compromise.
I did think for many, many years that because of my ability I could beat the system. And I was wrong.
What I've got to do now is let them judge me for who I am as an actor and not for my notoriety.
I had a bonding problem when I went off and boxed for five years. I was over in Europe and Asia fighting because I wanted to do something different; I was tired of acting. But the thing is, when I was done doing that, I couldn't get a job.
I trained like an animal, but the thing is focus and concentration. When the bell rings it's like when the little red light goes on over the camera. And I can usually nail my lines on the first or second take because I'm right there.
