“I learned that you can be an icon and one of the world’s greatest actors while still being the nicest man, and it changes everything for me and gives me a lot of fuel.” There is a lot of ego in this profession, and seeing that you can go this far while keeping your inner child intact and being a courteous, kind person means everything to me.
