(2004 Quote on drinking) "I made a conscious decision to break away from big films when I got alcohol out of my life. I had been sucked into the blockbuster, box office mentality and it was destroying my sense of purpose in life. The loneliness of fame was messing with my head. Once you`ve been famous for a while and told your story, it can sound like a lie. You don`t know what`s true. It sounds like an article someone wrote rather than the essence of who you are."
I believe in a higher power. I`ve studied Eastern philosophies, and I`ve studied the Koran. We`ve devalued everything worth believing in. Now we`re tearing into religion. A line should be drawn. The Last Temptation of Christ (1988) and The Da Vinci Code (2006) borders on that. I was glued to the book, but afterwards I thought, `Oh my Lord, now we`re tearing into God and our faith.` Are we going to be turning into a reality show too? I certainly hope not.
