Do you feel like you’ve become who you want to in life?
I have to say I’m pretty pleased with how things have gone. I still have a tremendous desire to make great movies. It’s been a desire that I don’t know if it can ever be quenched. We’re also influenced by a certain time frame in our youth and that was in my early teens when I started watching great classic movies and some great performances in the 50s, 60s, 70s. I just said to myself “My god, one day I want to make one movie or give one performance that is that good.” When you get that bug early on it can last, given the opportunity of course, it can last a lifetime, so I think it’s a good thing to have that desire.

If you had one day where no-one recognised you, what would you do?
I probably would just walk the streets or Rome or Paris. Probably Rome. I’d like to hit all those spots. I’d like to hit every great place in Rome that I could. I do that anyway, but usually it involved throwing me into a car (laughs) and a couple of security guards taking me off to the next highlight.

Do you have a Plan B or do you want to do the actor-thing until the end?
Is this not good enough? (laughs) My Plan B is if I can’t continue to be an actor and the type of actor I want then I’ll go do films with my friends for no money. I love acting so there is no Plan B. I hope to always be an actor, be involved with environmental issues, sure. It’s the one thing I’ve always loved and always wanted to do.

Do you have any personal habits you would like to change?
I’ve got a lot that I would like to change. My indecisiveness. I’d love to be more decisive. But I think that’s a part of my process. I feel like if I torture myself over decisions for a long period of time then I can ultimately have a good track record. It could be beneficial too, I don’t know.

 Are you a shy person?
No, I don’t think so. Some people may think that, but I don’t. I’m a pretty social dude.
