Personal Quotes (2)

[on the military training received for his role in Band of Brothers (2001)] This is no actors' frou-frou boot camp; this is the real deal. There were a couple of nights guys were crying themselves to sleep. It was two weeks of pure and utter hell -- but it should've been.
[on working with Gene Hackman and Denzel Washington in Crimson Tide (1995)] It humbled me and taught me lessons.
