He says, "They didn`t audition me to sing. They didn`t audition Pierce Brosnan to sing. Or Stellan... Read More

A live-action retelling of the classic fairy tale about a servant step-daughter who wins the heart of a prince.
[on his first time on stage] I played a heap of snow in a school play. I was under a sheet, and crawled out when spring came. I often say I`ll never reach the same artistic level again.
It takes a long time to make me beautiful, but it goes fast to make me ugly.
