Steven Bauer Quotes
I'm very fond of the British cinema. I'm a big fan of Martin Campbell and Daniel Craig. I actually find Daniel very inspirational, especially on the physical side of things. He really inspired me to get back into shape when I started to add on a few pounds. I think he's a great role model.
I've learned not to attach personal feelings to critics who review your work. It's their opinions, their perceptions - it's a very subjective thing, and you can be hurt.
Next? Growing up to be Clint Eastwood, I hope.
If you look at 1983, the film of the year was 'Terms of Endearment.' 'Scarface' was lumped in under the gratuitously violent banner. I mean, we knew it was violent, that it depicted a violent time and place. But it wasn't the end-all of the thing.
I have turned down playing the most despicable people on Earth. I turn it down all the time.
I'll be playing a priest in 'Chavez Cage Of Glory,' which is a fight movie.
People got very wimpy about 'Scarface' very quickly.
People recite lines to me all the time, anywhere I get recognized.
Fortunately, I'm very healthy, and my body is still intact. It hasn't aged very much, I feel like a very young 56. I exercise regularly, and when I do, I always learn new things about my body.
I think there is sort of a general universal perception of me, or someone who looks like me, as someone who is kind of menacing, dark or mysterious.
I'd like to make movies as a producer and a director.
'Ray Donovan' is such a revelation to everybody who's working on it, and it's only getting better.
'Scarface' was a tremendous undertaking, and I'm one of those who really feel that no one could have done it like Brian De Palma.
I really do like the independent way of working. You don't get much studio intrusion compared to when you're working on a big Hollywood film where there tends to always be loads of people interfering. The only problem, though, with independent features is that they are hard to sell.
I think the whole DVD craze has provided opportunities for material that, for those interested in it, explains the whole history and background in getting a film made, which is great.
I'm actually Cuban-born, born in 1956, the year Fidel Castro came into power, and my father moved my family to Miami a few years later when things were starting to look bad.
