ON TRAINING FOR "BATMAN RETURNS:"
"I had to train with a whip master�it's pretty cool, what you can do with a whip actually."
ON LOVE SCENES:
"It's awkward�sometimes people's wives show up�it's like 'hey how you doin?'"
ON THE EXPERIENCING THE LONG AUDITIONING PROCESS FOR SCARFACE:
"At a certain point, I couldn't act my way out of a paper bag, I was so scared."
"I love it, it's such a joyous experience. It's interesting because it's got a very strong message to it. It's talking about racism and bigotry, yet it's done in a light hearted way�it's a beautiful movie and very entertaining."
ON AUDITIONING FOR "GREASE 2:"
"I had never auditioned singing or dancing before, so I show up, and its one of the biggest stages on the Paramount lot, and there are maybe 300 dancers there. I fumbled my way through, finally I left. I was walking back to my car with my tail between my legs, and Pat's (the director) assistant came running after me and said they wanted me back for a screen test�It was a fluke."
ON FILMING "FRANKE AND JOHNNY:"
"It was exciting to play a character that you wouldn't think of me as."
