Dustin Hoffman Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Dustin Lee Hoffman, born on August 8, 1937 in Los Angeles California, is an American actor, television and film producer, film director and voice actor. Unlike many other actors who had strong dreams of becoming an actor from their childhood, Hoffman is not the one of them. Dustin started his career by acting in college simply because he took the subject in order to get more credits that were supposed to prevent him from failing to graduate.

So just how rich is Dustin Hoffman? Sources have estimated that Dustin’s net worth is $50 million, most accumulated from his long career in the entertainment industry, but also including assets such as a house in Malibu and another in Brentwood, where the average cost of a house is $4 million. His Malibu house is estimated to be worth $7.8 million dollars. Dustin also owns a Porsche 911 (1997) Carrera Cabriolet, Tesla Roadster, and a Black Toyota Prius.

Dustin Hoffman Net Worth $50 Million

In 1955, Dustin graduated from Los Angeles High School and soon after enrolled at Santa Monica College where he was supposed to study medicine. This fact once again supports the fact that Dustin did not have any idea of becoming a popular actor.

Once he actually started focusing on his acting career, Dustin acted in many minor roles in plays in Pasadena and on Broadway, including with friend and future Academy Award winner Gene Hackman, but eventually earned fame and his first Academy Award nomination for his role in the film “The Graduate” (1967) directed by Mike Nichols  and co-starring Anne Bancroft, with Hoffman’s net worth  growing as he was paid $17,000 for this film, but he still actually preferred theater, where he had the opportunity to play many different roles. Subsequently, his starring role in “Midnight Cowboy”(Best Picture – 1969) earned him accolades including an Academy Award nomination, partly because it was so different from “The Graduate”.

Later on, Dustin Hoffman was earned $42,500 for acting in “John and Mary” (1969). Roles in such movies as  “Lenny” (1974), “Marathon Man” (1976), ” All the President’s Men” (1976), “Tootsie” (1982), “Rain Man” (1988) among many others earned him solid sums which considerably benefited Dustin Hoffman’s net worth. Dustin appeared in “Little Fockers” (2010) directed by Paul Weitz, and for just a five day shoot in this movie, Dustin increased his net worth bigger by $7.5 million. In 2011, Hoffman performed in the TV series “Luck”.

Despite all these successful movies, “Straw Dogs” (1971) directed by Rod Lurie, although a box office success received negatives critiques, although Hoffman`s performance was praiseworthy. Dustin`s main failure is the movie “Ishtar” (1987), for which he was paid $6 million. Despite this, “Ishtar” was eventually nominated as one of the worst movies in cinema history.

Dustin Hoffman`s awards confirm him as a very successful actor though: five Golden Globes, two Academy Awards, three Drama Desks, one Emmy and one Genie Award. Hoffman has also earned four BAFTAs and in 2009 became a recipient of AFI Life Achievement Award. Since 2012 he is an awardee of Kennedy Honors. In the same year Dustin released “Quartet”, the first movie directed by him.

In his personal life, Dustin Hoffman was married to Anne Byrne (1969-80), and has been married to Lisa Gottsegen Hoffman since 1980: the couple has six children. The fact that he supports five charities, such as 826 National, Achievable Foundation, Cinema for Peace, Declare Yourself and Musicares, makes it clear Dustin Hoffman’s net worth is genuine.

32 Was Warner Brothers' first consideration for "The Penguin" in Batman Returns (1992).
33 On an episode of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992), Dustin Hoffman said that his cameo in the film The Holiday (2006) was not scripted and unplanned. He was driving by the Blockbuster shown in the film and saw all of the cameras and equipment so he decided to stop in and see what was happening. Because he knew director Nancy Meyers, they worked up a scene which ultimately made the final cut.
34 Is active in a commercial campaign with the Swedish clothing company KappAhl.
35 While having dinner with Paul McCartney, Dustin Hoffman told the story of the death of Pablo Picasso and his famous last words, "Drink to me, drink to my health. You know I can't drink anymore." Paul had a guitar with him and immediately played an impromptu chord progression while singing the quote. Thus, "Picasso's Last Words", one of the highlights of the "Band On The Run" album, was made.

40 His performance as Michael Dorsey/Dorothy Michaels in Tootsie (1982) is ranked #33 on Premiere Magazine's 100 Greatest Performances of All Time (2006).

42 Oscar-winning director John Schlesinger envisioned a cast of Al Pacino, Julie Christie and Laurence Olivier for Marathon Man (1976). Pacino has said that the only actress he had ever wanted to work with was Christie, who he claimed was "the most poetic of actresses." Producer Robert Evans, who disparaged the vertically challenged Pacino as "The Midget" when Francis Ford Coppola wanted him for The Godfather (1972) and had thought of firing him during the early shooting of the now-classic film, vetoed Pacino for the lead. Instead, Evans insisted on the casting of the even-shorter Dustin Hoffman! On her part, Christie -- who was notoriously finicky about accepting parts, even in prestigious, sure-fire material -- turned down the female lead, which was then taken by Marthe Keller (who, ironically, became Pacino's lover after co-starring with him in Bobby Deerfield (1977)). Of his dream cast, Schlesinger only got Olivier, who was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar.
43 Was considered for the role of Beau Burruoghs in Rumor Has It... (2005). The part was eventually played by Kevin Costner. Beau Burruoghs was meant to be a real-life version of Hoffman's Benjamin Braddock in The Graduate (1967), set 38 years after the film's release.
44 His father, Harry Hoffman, was born in Massachusetts, to Ukrainian Jewish parents, Esther (Schiskoski) and Frank Hoffman, from Bila Tserkva, in the Kiev Oblast. His mother, Lillian (Gold), was born in Chicago, Illinois, to Louis Isadore Gold, a Jewish immigrant from Warsaw, Poland, and Celia Epstein, a Romanian Jewish immigrant. In the Russian Empire, the Hoffman family's surname was spelled "Goikhman".
45 He and Anne Bancroft are less than 6 years apart in real life, even though she was supposed to be more than twice his age in The Graduate (1967).
46 In 1993 he, together with Anne Bancroft, accepted the Oscar for "Best Writing, Screenplay Based on Material from Another Medium", on behalf of Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, who wasn't present at the awards ceremony.
47 Had expressed an early desire to play the title role in Gandhi (1982), but was offered Tootsie (1982) the same year and ended up taking the latter role. He eventually lost the Oscar that year to Ben Kingsley who played Gandhi.
48 April 2005: Recipient of a Lincoln Center tribute.
49 Both he and Robert Duvall said one of the best reasons why they went to acting classes were the girls. When they were young, the classes were a gold mine to them.
50 Has appeared in two films about "Peter Pan" (Hook (1991) and Finding Neverland (2004)). Following his appearance in Hook (1991), close friend and former roommate Gene Hackman began calling him "Hook" as a joke. The name stuck and his contemporaries call him by that nickname to this day.
51 While filming Finding Neverland (2004) lost the tip of a finger and performed one day of shooting on morphine.
52 Was interested in playing Shylock in Michael Radford's adaptation of William Shakespeare's "Merchant of Venice": The Merchant of Venice (2004). However, by the time he contacted Radford, Al Pacino had already been cast for the role.
53 He was voted the 28th Greatest Movie Star of all time by Entertainment Weekly.
54 Despite being old friends and roommates with Gene Hackman back in the 1960s, it was literally decades before he appeared on screen with him. He finally starred with Hackman in Runaway Jury (2003).
55 Entered into The Guinness Book of World Records as "Greatest Age Span Portrayed By A Movie Actor" for Little Big Man (1970) in which he portrayed a character from age 17 to age 121.
56 As roommates, Hoffman and Gene Hackman would often go to the apartment rooftop and play the drums. Hoffman played the bongo drums while Hackman played the conga drums. They did it out of their love for Marlon Brando, who they had heard played music in clubs. They wanted to be like Brando and were big fans of his.
57 Eventually Hackman persuaded Hoffman to room with their mutual friend Robert Duvall, and soon the two nascent actors were sharing an $80-a-month apartment on W. 109th St.in Manhattan's Upper West Side.
58 After attending the Pasadena Playhouse, Hoffman decided to move to New York and looked up former Playhouse classmate Gene Hackman. The two of them roomed together in New York at Hackman's one-bedroom apartment on 2nd Ave. and 26th St. Hoffman slept on the kitchen floor. Originally Hackman had offered to let him stay a few nights, but Hoffman would not leave. Hackman had to take him out to look for his own apartment.
59 Met actor Gene Hackman in their first month at Pasadena Playhouse and had several classes with him. Hackman failed out after three months and moved to New York to try his luck as a stage actor.
60 He was a neighbor of Mel Brooks in New York and was set to play the role of Franz Liebkind in Brooks' first film, The Producers (1967). Just before production was to commence, Hoffman was offered the role of Ben Braddock in The Graduate (1967), co-starring Brooks' wife Anne Bancroft, and asked to be let out of his contract. The role of Liebkind eventually went to Kenneth Mars.
61 Friday, March 6th, 1970, he and wife Anne Byrne Hoffman were living in a brownstone on 11th St. in New York City's Greenwich Village when the house next door blew up. Fortunately, he and his family weren't home. Members of the radical 1960's domestic terror group, that called themselves "The Weathermen" were living in that house unknown to anyone and had stored a large cache of explosives that accidentally detonated, killing three of the group's members. Henry Fonda's ex-wife, Susan Wager, was also a neighbor in that block and witnessed the explosion, as it occurred.
62 Has a house in the Kensington area of London.
63 Has known Gene Hackman since 1956 when they met at the Pasadena Playhouse.
64 Was in early consideration for the role of Rick Deckard in Blade Runner (1982). The role eventually went to Harrison Ford.
65 Brother-in-law of producer Lee Gottsegen.
66 January 1999: He was awarded $3m in damages and compensation in a case against "Los Angeles" Magazine, because it had printed a digitally altered image of him in a dress (cf. Tootsie (1982)). In July 2001 a federal appeals court overturned the verdict. The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals found that because the photo appeared in an article, not an advertisement, the use of the actor's likeness did not constitute "commercial speech" and was entitled to the full protection of the 1st Amendment.
67 His parents named him Dustin after actor Dustin Farnum.
68 October 1997: Ranked #41 in Empire (UK) magazine's "The Top 100 Movie Stars of All Time" list.
69 During the filming of Wag the Dog (1997) Hoffman, his co-star Robert De Niro and director Barry Levinson had an impromptu meeting with President Bill Clinton at a Washington hotel. "So what's this movie about?" Clinton asked De Niro. De Niro looked over to Levinson, hoping he would answer the question. Levinson, in turn, looked over to Hoffman. Hoffman, realizing there was no one else to pass the buck to, is quoted as saying, "So I just started to tap dance. I can't even remember what I said."
70 Was considered for the role of Michael Corleone in The Godfather (1972).

#Quote
1 [on The Graduate (1967)] As far as I'm concerned, Mike Nichols did a very courageous thing casting me in a part that was not right for, meaning I was Jewish. In fact many of the reviews were negative. It was kind of veiled anti-Semitism: I was called 'big-nosed'.
2 [in a 2008 interview, on whether he ever googled himself] No, and it's not out of modesty. It's 'cause I don't belong in the 21st Century. I really never got far into the technology since the dial phone. It's all very tough for me. I jut block it out or whatever, but I cannot work those things without help... As we speak, I'm walking my dogs on the beach, and, lo and behold, paparazzi. I'm being interviewed while I'm being shot.
3 I knew I was not going to win for The Graduate (1967). I knew that Rod Steiger was going to win for In the Heat of the Night (1967), and I knew I was not going to win for Midnight Cowboy (1969) because John Wayne was a sentimental favorite for True Grit (1969). And he won, as he should have, by the way, because I somehow feel they make more sense when they give you an award for a body of work... I actually remember walking up the aisle, and I'd had a few drinks, when I was nominated for Tootsie (1982). I was a little late getting there. Everybody was seated, and the show was just beginning, and I'm walking down the aisle and Paul Newman was on my right. He was nominated (for The Verdict (1982)) I leaned over and said to him, with three drinks in me, I whispered in his ear, "We're not gonna win." And he smiled because everyone knew Ben Kingsley was going to win for Gandhi (1982). There's never been a time, thankfully, where I thought, "Man, I think I'm gonna win this, and then I didn't."
4 [when asked by a 60 Minutes (1968) interviewer what he would like his tombstone to say] I'd like to thank my parents. Without them I couldn't have gotten this far.
5 I think the most insulting thing you can do to a director is to challenge when he or she is satisfied with your interpretation.
6 [on playing a shady racetrack ex-con in Luck (2011)] I don't have a gangster phone book or anything like that. I live in a certain milieu, that's called 'Hollywood' euphemistically, in which you are are continually lied to and screwed with. I'd much rather be with the mob because, if they promise you something, they keep their word. In Hollywood nobody keeps their word. Everybody lies to you because it doesn't cost them their life. If I were more like my character I might want to kill them with my bare hands.
7 [on learning about Santa Anita Park while making Luck (2011)] Through David Milch. David knows more about it than anything else. I shouldn't say that, because my wife [Lisa Gottsegen]'s father was a "degenerate" [a nickname for a regular gambler], and my wife went to the track with him when she was 6 years old. My wife has told me everything I have to know about the track, because as a child, she'd learn it from her father, who was a degenerate. When my wife was 5 or 6 years old, she went out to Santa Anita every day with him, and she held a piece of paper and she would look at her dad and say, "See that horse? Write down KS," and she knew that stood for "kidney sweat" [a sign of a nervous or sick horse], and that was her job for about three years.
8 [on his Luck (2011) character Chester "Ace" Bernstein] I think he tells the truth, and yet he's very intimidating. He's not believed. In the world that he lives in, telling the truth is the last thing they're going to believe. Paddy Chayefsky said to me many, many years ago when he was researching for The Godfather (1972), he says, "I'll take the mob any day, because if you don't keep your word, they kill you. So you keep your word. I just got to know a little bit about Hollywood. There is no moral compass because no one keeps your word because no one's going to kill them. They're just going to get sued. Give me the mafia."
9 It's very hard to do your best work, but you want a shot at it. You cannot get a shot at doing your best work in the studio system. You can't. There's committees, there's meetings, you're on the set, you don't have to do that, they get involved in a quasi-creative way but they buck heads with people they shouldn't be bucking heads with. With HBO, once they give a go, there's no committee, no meetings. I was expecting 20 pages a day. I was expecting an atmosphere like making movies on cocaine or speed. It's the opposite. We did the best we could with as much time as we could, and came back the next day. Michael Mann hired all film directors. There was no difference between making a movie, except he used digital and three cameras, which actors love because we don't have to repeat.
10 Movies are a bastard art form, period. Art, I would think, is the first day you don't start with chapter 25, then jump to the beginning, then jump to the end, and it's all set in concrete, and a script is never what the movie turns out to be. It's either better or worse, but it's a blueprint. When you're painting a picture or writing, you know as well as anyone, you have the general feeling of it but it begins to tell you where it's going. This is the first time I've ever had that opportunity. That is extraordinary. Michael Mann said he looks at the work, and it starts to influence [him]: We could go there, we could go there, we could go there. I've never had that experience before. As far as it inhabiting me, it doesn't. I don't take the character [home], I've never really understood that personally. You're pretending.
11 [on his role of Dorothy in Tootsie (1982)] I feel cheated never being able to know what it's like to get pregnant, carry a child and breast-feed.
12 [on winning the Academy Award] We are part of an artistic family.There are sixty thousand actors in the Screen Actors Guild who don't work. You have to practice accents while you're driving a taxicab 'cause when you're a broke actor you can't write and you can't paint. Most actors don't work and few of us are lucky to have a chance. And to that artistic family that strives for excellence, none of you have ever lost, and I am proud to share this with you, and I thank you.
13 [Glancing at his Oscar for Kramer vs. Kramer (1979)] He has no genitalia and he's holding a sword. I'd like to thank my mother and father for not practicing birth control.
14 [on the financial success of 'All the President's Men'] The reason for the success of this picture is that Hoffman's back and Redford's got him. It's what the public always wanted: that beautiful WASP finally wound up with a nice Jewish boy.
15 [1974] The Academy Awards are obscene, dirty and no better than a beauty contest.
16 [on Meryl Streep]: She's extraordinarily hardworking, to the extent that she's obsessive. I think that she thinks about nothing else but what she's doing.
17 Someone once said to me, 'Some of us choose to live with a lifeboat just a little bit out of our reach.' I'd like to reach a point where I no longer bullshit myself. I think that's the natural human condition - to lie to yourself. Because the truth is painful.
18 [on first turning down The Graduate (1967)] It was like a bad dream for me. And it came at a time when I was beginning to get work off-Broadway as an actor and I'd just been in a hit and I'd gotten awards and I thought for the rest of my life my dream will come true: I will be an off-Broadway actor for the rest of my life. And that would have been enough. More than enough. Steady employment was the goal. If God had come down at that moment and said to me or Gene Hackman or Robert Duvall, 'Sign a contract here that says "You're never going to be successful, you're never going to have a lead, you're never going to be rich and famous, you will never be on Broadway, you will never be in the West End - you'll be not even off, but off-off-off-Broadway, but you will never see a day without work' - we would have signed on the dotted line in a New York minute.
19 Working with Federico Fellini? That destabilised everything. That makes liars out of my parents. Because I believed what they told me. I should not have turned down Fellini. If he wants you to do it in mumbo jumbo, if it's the worst script you've ever read, you do not turn down the great artists. I turned Samuel Beckett down! I didn't show up for a meeting at a bar in Paris. I got too scared. It was to do 'Godot.' They called me up and said he waited there for an hour! That's the title of my autobiography - 'I Turned Beckett Down.' But I just froze. I look back and I can't call up Federico now and say, 'I changed my mind. Will you work with me?'
20 [on choosing a profession where he felt secure in failure:] It's very painful for us to feel we deserve a life. That's the toughest thing. That we deserve to have a life. That can take a lifetime.
21 To this day, Robert Duvall says it was one of the best times of when we were all living together. Because I'd come home and they'd say, 'What did so-and-so do today?' and I'd act out the characters I'd met there. Gene Hackman would spend his entire day in the cinema. It was a place where the homeless went, because for 35 cents they could sleep there all day. He was in there at 10am and he heard one homeless guy in the balcony saying, 'You're sorry? You're sorry? What do you mean, you're sorry? You piss all over my date and you say you're sorry?'
22 On working at the New York Psychiatric Institute: It was one of the most illuminating experiences I ever had. You see all the devils we have and just see it out of control. The only thing that frightened me was, I had to hold people down while they were given shock treatments, but after a few months I said, 'I can't do it any more.' [At the time, he was reading "One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest," and couldn't get over how close it mirrored life at the psychiatric institute.] You went in there normal and came out crazy in those days. You came out worse.
23 [Acting coach Barney Brown] told me, you can have a life. He didn't say anything about success. He said, 'Whether you direct, write, act or stage-manage, you're in the right place.' And he said, 'Go to New York and understand one thing - nothing is going to happen to you for 10 years. Give yourself 10 years and nothing is going to happen.' It was true. I found work where I could fail with dignity. Because 90% of us didn't get jobs.
24 On meeting Gene Hackman at the Pasadena Playhouse College of Theater Arts: They kicked him out after three months because he had no talent.
25 On how he became an actor: I started junior college in Los Angeles because I didn't have the grades to go to university and I didn't want to go into the military. So in my first year of junior college I'm failing and I don't know what to do. I don't want to get a job, I want to be a student, and a friend says, 'Take acting, because they don't flunk you - it's like gym, nobody gets an F.' "I took it and suddenly it was the first thing I ever did that wasn't painful. Where I held focus. And suddenly, rehearsing with somebody - learning lines - hours could pass by. And I begged my parents to let me go to this acting school, because I knew I couldn't fail."
26 On why he turned down great roles: I failed everything growing up. I was convinced I was failing for a reason. I wasn't intelligent or like most people. I could barely get through school. I was considered in my family to be a loser. My brother, who is older, was an A student - captain of the football team and the baseball team, and I was the comedian. And someone saying, 'Boy, you're a real comedian,' is like someone saying, 'Boy, you're a real loser.'
27 I know it's written that I'm difficult. Barry Levinson - who I did four films with - told me that every press person comes up to him and asks, 'How do you work with that guy?' and he says, 'I've done nothing but extol what a privilege and fun it's been.' But not one interviewer has ever printed that. Look, the medical metaphor I use is, it's like you're on a table for brain surgery and you're being wheeled in and the guy leans in and says, 'Hi I'm your brain surgeon and don't worry - I'm not difficult, I'm not a perfectionist.' I am no different from the focus puller - you're either sharp or you're not.
28 On filming Kramer vs. Kramer (1979): What makes divorce happen is that you can't be in the same space any more, for whatever reason - but the love stays. And that's the killer. That's where the vehemence and anger and rage comes from.
29 I wanted to be a jazz pianist, but I wasn't good enough. I got into city college because I didn't have the grades to get into university. I took acting because it was a way to get three credits. I just needed three credits and my friend told me to take acting because it was like gym - nobody fails you. I took it and that's literally how I got involved in acting.
30 The truth is, the older you get, the less variety of parts you are offered. If you're a star and you've spent most of your career being able to take your pick of the litter, you notice when the offers start to diminish. You're too old to play leads, so you're offered the supporting role - but many stars don't want to make that transition. They see it as a sign of symbolic impotence. And that the audience will no longer regard them as a star. I love acting, and I'm not going to determine what I do based on what I fear other people might think. I do what I want to do.
31 [2004 quote] I once met Clint Eastwood, and it was remarkable. I studied him as I spoke to him. I looked down, and his pants were a little short -- they showed a bit too much of his socks. There was something so timid and shy and almost gawky about him in real life. I remember thinking to myself, Someone should have cast him in Meet John Doe (1941), the Frank Capra movie, because that's the real him. There's not a wisp of aggression about him. That's the real essence, not the guy who says, "Make my day."
32 [on Mike Nichols] He makes you feel kind of like a kite. He lets you go ahead and you do your thing. And then when you're finished he pulls you in by the string. But at least you've had the enjoyment of the wind.
33 [on working with Meryl Streep in Kramer vs. Kramer (1979)] She's an ox when it comes to acting. She eats words for breakfast. Working with her is like playing tennis with Chris Evert -- she keeps trying to hit the perfect ball.
34 [on he and Gene Hackman as young stage actors and roommates in New York]: Psychologically, Gene/myself, we did not think about making it in the terms that people think about. We fully expected to be failures for our entire life. Meaning that we would always be scrambling to get a part. We were actors. We had no pretensions. There was more dignity in being unsuccessful.
35 [in 2005] "I became an actor because I believed I was a failure. In acting, because so few of us ever get work, I could feel proud and fail with dignity. I was born into what I now know was a dysfunctional family. I found that out in therapy three weeks ago."
36 I don't like the fact that I have to get older so fast, but I like the fact that I'm aging so well.
37 Euthanasia is legal in Hollywood. They just kill the film if it doesn't succeed immediately.
38 I'm sixty-eight, I cry every chance I can.
39 [About acting] "You get caught off-guard during a take. Your mind goes wild and it just comes out 'Waaa, you talking to me!' "
40 [About his new film Stranger Than Fiction (2006)] "I'm really proud of it, and I've only said that about three times during my career."
41 One thing about being successful is that I stopped being afraid of dying. Once you're a star you're dead already. You're embalmed.
42 [on the administration of President George Bush and its invasion of Iraq] "For me as an American, the most painful aspect of this is that I believe that [this] administration has taken the events of 9/11 and has manipulated the grief of the country and I think that's reprehensible. I don't think, like many of us, that the reasons we have been given for going to war are the honest reasons. If they are saying it's about the fact they have biological weapons and might have nuclear weapons and that gives us the liberty to pre-empt and strike because we think they might hit us, then what prevents Pakistan from attacking India, what prevents India from attacking Pakistan, what prevents us from going into North Korea? I believe--though I may wrong because I am no expert--that this war is about what most wars are about: hegemony, money, power and oil."
43 A good review from the critics is just another stay of execution.
44 God knows I've done enough crap in my life to grow a few flowers.
45 I grew up thinking a movie star had to be like Rock Hudson or Tab Hunter, certainly nobody in any way like me.
46 Stardom equals freedom. It's the only equation that matters.
47 You go to the cinema and you realize you're watching the third act. There is no first or second act. There is this massive film-making where you spend this incredible amount of money and play right to the demographic. You can tell how much money the film is going to make by how it does on the first weekend. The whole culture is in the crap house. It's not just true in the movies, it's also true in the theater.
48 If a lot of dogs are on the beach, the first thing they do is smell each other's ass. The information that's gotten somehow makes pacifists out of all of them. I've thought, 'If only we smelled each other's asses, there wouldn't be any war.'
49 I lived below the official American poverty line until I was 31.
50 I got into acting so that I could meet girls. Pretty girls came later. First, I wanted to start off with someone with two legs, who'd smile at me and look soft.
51 We all believe what we read. I read how Tom Cruise and I were two big egos holding up shooting. I know that isn't true - but if I wasn't making a movie with him and I just picked up the paper, I'd believe it. That's interesting, isn't it?
