Stayed at the historic Hotel Colorado in Glenwood Springs while filming his 1995 movie Tall Tale. His picture and autograph hang in the main lobby.

(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.
