I’m not looking to get away from anything. I like what I’ve done. I like what I get to do and I enjoy working with my friends. I loved those movies, but this is incredible.
Making movies was more a reaction to not being chosen for sports. Other kids were out there playing at whatever I was off making something blow up and filming it, or making a mould of my sister’s head using alginating plaster.
Right now, if you’re interested in being a dramatic actor, they’re not making that many just regular dramas. Movies have to have some other thing going on.
Movies for adults sucked in the 1980s, and music for adults sucked even worse whether we’re talking about Kathleen Turner flicks or Sting albums, the decade’s non-teen culture has no staying power at all.
I love these movies where it’s just about the film. You don’t have my face on the poster. It’s all about the movie. I like that.
