Awards and nominations[edit]

"I do movies people like to see. It's that simple. You try to make sure the movies are memorable. Not just another movie. You've got to have a feeling for hipness. You milk certain lines. 'Hasta la vista, baby,' or, 'I lied.' You go a little over the top. People love it. Kids love it. And you do some athletic stuff, some fitness, and people think you're cool."

"If anybody asked me about getting to the top in acting and making movies – becoming like a Clint Eastwood or a Warren Beatty or a Burt Reynolds – people would say, 'Do you know what it takes to get there? How are you going to do it?' I didn't have an answer. But something was in me that made me feel like it was going to happen."
