I've calmed down. Looking back, I was engaged more in dramas than I was in relationships. I've spent a lot of my life being in it for the plot, and I don't do that anymore. I'm satisfied.

I feel my shows are like a late-night talk show that we settle down and do every night.

I shot down some German planes and I got shot down myself, crashing in a burst of flames and crawling out, getting rescued by brave soldiers.
Look, if you're driving down the highway at 120 miles an hour, I'd rather be behind the wheel than in the backseat.
