On his life as a bachelor:
"I haven't had aspirations in [wanting a marriage]. I was married in 1989. I wasn't very good at it. I was quoted as saying I'll never get married again pretty much right after I got divorced and then I've never talked about it since.What do you do? Should I go, 'I got to get me some kids right now!' and rush out and impregnate someone? Look what I do is that I was raised in a loving, happy family. I don't have any dislike or distrust of that."

On his 21st century stardom:
"Not that I'm comparing myself to Clark Gable or whoever but they couldn't survive in this environment. They'd punch the s**t out of some people. It requires a kind of Zen quality. There's funny thing about fame. The truth is you run as fast as you can towards it because it's everything you want. Not just the fame but what it represents, meaning work, meaning opportunity. And then you get there and it's shocking how immediately you become enveloped int his world that is incredibly restricting."

On his views on social media:
"I think anyone who is famous is a moron if they're on Twitter. It's just stupid."
