Man gives you the award but God gives you the reward.
Acting is just a way of making a living, the family is life
The only way I'm going to L.A. is with a job.
I remain thankful for the gifts that I've been given and I try to use them in a good way, in a positive way.
- Acting's like someone asking you for years to write the characters, but they write the book.
