My father was an inspiration to me I made a few movies with him and I loved working with him. Everything about him – his whole approach to work, as well as his love, enthusiasm and respect for it and other people in the business – was inspiring. I was very lucky to have him as a role model.
I have no problem going on record with this and probably have gone on record with this before, there aren’t that many people who I respect. There just aren’t.
You respect all of these people that you know in the business as actors. And they sort of turn around and say, we really like your work. It’s a nice acknowledgment.
Well, I had an immense respect for Cirque du Soleil when I first say them in the ’80s on a television show and just thought, you know, this group is really reinventing the circus, as you know. Because there wasn’t three rings. There were no animals.
