I don't see the world completely in black and white. Sometimes I do.
My grandfather was a lawyer, my dad was a lawyer, my mum was a lawyer, I got an uncle who's a lawyer, I got cousins that are lawyers.
I'm a fan myself, so when a fan does something that might be strange, I understand it.
Before I was ever in high school, I had dark circles under my eyes.
Well, when I came to Hollywood, there were three names really of Latin actors, three or four names, maybe five. There was Raul Julia, Edward James Olmos, Andy Garcia, Antonio Banderas, Jimmy Smits. Now there's a lot.
My goal as an actor has always been to reach a level where I can find a lot of interesting work, and I think I'm at that point now. The Oscar has given me a lot of recognition.
You have to kill to survive. People have been doing it forever. I eat meat, and I eat fish. If I were on a deserted island I would need that to survive.
'License to Kill' is not one of the great Bond movies.
I used to play basketball and I was pretty competitive, but I was never a bad loser. I never got angry. For me it was always about doing my best and devoting myself to a challenge.
I've always played the guy with the gun and the knife. That's how many actors start out, playing the bad guy.
I'm a slow reader.
I guess I rooted for the Creature from the Black Lagoon.
I'm not Jack Nicholson. I'm not Brando. But I do mumble.
There's a lot of Latinos right now, a lot of filmmakers and writers that are Latin too.
I don't think I could be a foot soldier. I don't know if I could take orders too good. I'm a little lazy.
I trained as a theater actor and you had a bare stage and you had to pretend, one prop and you are in the middle of 8th Ave. and traffic is just going by.
I've liked most of the films that I've been in and those are the kinds of films I like to see.
There are a lot of good actresses out there.
To be honest with you, I'd rather not be working. When you work, there are all sorts of deadlines and pressures. I like to do one thing and take my time to do the other one.
When some people get parts, they feel they can now relax, but for me it was always the opposite. Sometimes before I do a movie or before I act out a scene, I may not sleep well the night before. If I don't know what the scene is about, I might get all worked up.
