He went on to star in many more popular movies including Interview with the Vampire (1994), Se7en (1995), Meet Joe Black (1998), and Ocean's Eleven (2002) and its sequels.

Quotes

  • "Being married means I can break wind and eat ice cream in bed."
  • "You must lose everything in order to gain anything."
  • "I'd like to design something like a city or a museum. I want to do something hands on rather than just play golf which is the sport of the religious right."
  • "I'm gonna design my own fleet of trailers. No! I'm gonna record an album like Jennifer Lopez. It'll be an acoustic version of K.C. and the Sunshine Band. Then maybe I'll design a line of clothes like Puff Daddy, but all in synthetic fur."
  • "You know, I telephoned my grandparents the other day, and my grandfather said to me, 'We saw your movie.' 'Which one?' I said, and he shouted, 'Betty, what was the name of that movie I didn't like?' I thought that was just classic. I mean, if that doesn't keep your feet on the ground, what would?"
