Personal Quote:

I just take care of myself. I never drink. I've never been involved with drugs. I don't let the business control me. I don't feel the need to be in the public eye. I've never searched for adulation, and I'm not gonna start, at this point in my life, to do so.

Died 13 days after the start of the Iraq War. See more »
