Personal Quote:

(2010, on his career) I'm always looking for something that's real and that's got meat on it. I think it's artistic suicide if you're too vain, or if you're afraid to play ugly. I would never fall for that. See more »

Trivia:

First Swedish male actor to win a Golden Globe award and the second to receive a nomination. The first was Max von Sydow, who was nominated for Hawaii (1966), and The Exorcist (1973) but did not win. See more »
