I hate it as much as peanuts. But I can't stop eating peanuts." "I hate it when people pray on the screen. It's not because I hate praying, but whenever I see an actor fold his hands and look up in the spotlight, I'm lost. There's only one other thing in the movies I hate as much, and that's sex. You just can't get in bed or pray to God and convince me on the screen." "Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him."
