Quotes

#Quote
1I'm forever grateful for all the major producers who offered me numerous opportunities for huge come-backs. Maybe it's for the best, I just didn't have the personality to be famous and felt out of place in the limelight.
2On the Wiseguy (1996) movie they were shooting me up like a racehorse with cortisone and s---. I only worked 16 days and barely got through it. That's when I knew I couldn't do it anymore. I had to hang 'em up.
3[on being named the Sexiest Man on TV by Us magazine] When that Sexiest Man thing came out, I absolutely hated it. Everybody likes to be thought of as attractive, but when it's the foremost thing that you're known for, it's the kiss of death.
4[on the accident during the filming of Wiseguy (1987)] She (Jan Eliasberg) had me walking into my own POV shot, and you don't have to be Steven Spielberg to know that that's not right. I was stepping up, and the [camera] wheel caught my right heel and it just ripped out the Achilles tendon. Pop! It sounded like a champagne cork. But she wanted to do it again, so I said, 'Okay, you're the boss.' From that day forward, I've never been the same.
5Every single movie I've done has been crap because they've cut the best stuff out.
