[about being called volatile] What do they say about all the guys that are tremendous actors? Don’t they say they have a volatile temper and emotions? Yeah, sure they do! They’re not saying they like a nice, mild guy. Look at Sean Penn.

[on receiving his first Oscar nomination] People are finally realizing I’m one of the few actors who has never missed a performance. I’ve worked with broken legs, arms, ankles. I once passed a kidney stone during the opening night of a show.
