You can, but the rules have changed for me. I ran there with three movies in a row that were “Out of Sight”, “Three Kings” and “O Brother, Where are Thou”. If any of these scenarios came to me with a role that I could play, I would, but these scenarios are rare. I don’t get bored of acting, I’m more concerned with the idea that I really know how careers go, because I saw it: my aunt Rosemary was a great singer and then she wasn’t. Things are changing, I know that. I have no interest in giving up, but you have to reevaluate what you are good at.
Have you considered working with newer directors instead of established ones?
I’ve seen a few movies where I go, “Oh, this is a very interesting, smart movie,” but you have to know the directors a little bit. I need to know that they love what they do and aren’t [jerks].
Because you’ve had this experience before?
Well, I’ve had this experience a few times and I had to say, “Life is too short.” We need to do something that most people I know would like to do in order to live, so you should celebrate that. I remember when a young man heard movie stars talking about how hard their lives were, and I was cutting tobacco for a living! I said to myself, “I want you to tell me how That’s great “I want to work with people who love what I do.
Paul Newman used to say, “Yeah, it’s fun!” For the last few years of his life, we became friends and even felt that he liked what he did to live. He was friends with Gregory Peck and they never disappointed in real life who they were as movie stars.
I don’t want people screaming and screaming and being upset in the world. Once, I was at a roundtable of directors with a director who was like, “I break down the actors. I’ll take 40 photos until they have nothing. “I looked at him like an actor and I said, ‘Man, I’ll never work with you.’
Joel Schumacher passed away earlier this year. He directed you in “Batman & Robin”. What’s the best story you can tell about him in that set?
