Personal Quote:

I've lived an amazing life. There's no reason to focus on the bad. They teach you that in racing school. Keep your eye where you want your front tire to be. You don't want to be stuck in the rut? Then don't look at the rut. Always look at where you want to go. See more »


Reportedly, the infamous fight he had with Willem Dafoe during the filming of Platoon (1986) was caused over the use of a monkey in one of the scenes. See more »
