Personal Quote:

I was 40 when I did my first movie. I didn't know what the hell I was doing. My interpretation of acting at the time, because I didn't know how to build a character, was pure energy. People call me an instinctive actor. I used to consider that an insult early on, only because I had never studied. Now... I love it. See more »

Trivia:

Was in Madonna's "Papa Don't Preach" music video, playing her father. See more »
