I don't believe that old cliche that good things come to those who wait. I think good things come to those who want something so bad they can't sit still.
In Serbia a lot of people hate me because they want to westernise, not understanding that the western world is bipolar, with very good things and very bad things. Since they don't have experience of the west, they even believe that western shit is pie.
There's no such thing as a perfect guy. I think it would be strange if somebody was absolutely everything you always wanted, because then there'd be no challenge. Also, you'd feel inferior.
I have a little bit of a belly, a tiny bit of pooch. It's the one thing I don't want to lose. I just like having some softness. If I lose that, then Tom might leave me.
But, the thing is, since I always had my own little shop and direct access to the public, I've been able to build up a technique without marketing people ever telling me what the public wants.
I've gone for each type: the rough guy; the nerdy, sweet, lovable guy; and the slick guy. I don't really have a type. Men in general are a good thing.
I so desperately wanted to be Mr. Somebody. Instead, I was the little brother, included to a point.
Why did I make "Subway"? Why did I do all that crazy undersea stuff in "The Big Blue"? Why did I go all black and nasty with "La Femme Nikita"?. I don't know. Because I did. I do what I do because I want to do it, because I want to explore, go looking for things.
School, I never truly got the knack of. I could never focus on things I didn't want to learn.
To become a classical ballerina, you have to move to New York when you're 12 or 11 and that becomes your life. I just wanted to be good in my company in Charleston and I wanted it to always be part of my life.
I have to turn down roles I really want to do because I can't travel. But that's okay, because you make peace with things in your mind.
The great thing about the business is how Darwinian it is. We have to swim or die - if you are found wanting over a period of time, you've either got to change what you're doing or find something else to do.
I think it's great if a guy has a good sized package.
The greatest wealth is to live content with little, for there is never want where the mind is satisfied.
Although all the good arts serve to draw man's mind away from vices and lead it toward better things, this function can be more fully performed by this art, which also provides extraordinary intellectual pleasure.
The only thing that you owe the public is a good performance.
I just want to make a point that it's not just great teachers that sometimes shape your life. Sometimes it's the absence of great teachers that shapes your life and being ignored can be just as good for a person as being lauded.
I grew up on musicals, and I know they are quite the thing now, but I'm actually a little indignant, because I started taking singing lessons years ago-I put the time in!
I was perceiving myself as good as a man or equal to a man and as powerful and I wanted to look ambiguous because I thought that was a very interesting statement to make through the media. And it certainly did cause quite a few ripples and interest and shock waves.
Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.
It has long been an axiom of mine that the little things are infinitely the most important.
I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
War has been good to me from a financial standpoint but I don't want to make money that way. I don't want blood money.
I've been strong and determined all my life about many things I've wanted.
I always wanted to be a singer, it's what I wanted to do since I was little. I'm doing it now and I couldn't be happier.
