Personal Quote:

[on playing AIDS-challenged Ron Woodroof in 'The Dallas Buyers Club'] Stay with the anarchy of this guy. Stay with the bigoted bastard. Stay with the guy who's out for self-preservation. Stay with the guy who's a business man. The guy wants to be Scarface, man - the cause, and the crusader - and the activist will be revealed. Whether you like him or not, you respect him at the end of the story ... See more »
