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.

Trivia:

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