Personal Quote:

Movie acting is about covering the machinery. Stage acting is about exposing the machinery. In cinema, you should think the actor is playing himself, if he's that good. It looks very easy. It should. But it's not, I assure you. To disappear your complete self into a character is quite difficult. I've tried it 85 times, and I've succeeded two or three times. See more »

Trivia:

As of 2013, he has three grandchildren, a granddaughter and two grandsons. See more »

Trademark:
