Personal Quote:

[on Sean Penn in 'At Close Range'] I had this little shed out I front of my house, and Sean went to the store and bought heavy weights, brought them back and put them in the shed. And I remember he was so surprised, once he committed himself to that, how his body changed so dramatically, in a short period of time. But he had to eat an awful lot too, and that was hard for him, funnily enough. See more »
