"You ain't ever gonna get an Academy Award for doing Crank (2006) and you certainly won't for doing all the other movies I've done."
I love to get behind the wheel and get competitive.
We're trying to make a movie that's interesting.
I think being a competitive diver for years helps you focus and dedicate yourself to what's needed.
It's something I never dreamed I'd be doing, making movies.
I used to play a lot of racket sports, tennis and squash.
Yes, I did quite a bit of boat driving.
The fight training was very extensive, a lot of stretching, a lot of coordination of balance exercises.
I suppose that's the European way, dangerous and hairy.
I'm impressed with the likes of Jet Li and Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee was a big hero of mine for many years. They're great influences.
I've come from nowhere, and I'm not shy to go back.
If you got a good imagination, a lot of confidence and you kind of know what you are saying, then you might be able to do it. I know a lot of colorful characters at home that would make great actors.
And if people come up and say they like the movies you're in, it's a great compliment.
So I used to put money in my pocket while working on the street corners, selling perfume and jewelry, and other goods that were supposedly expensive.
I'm certainly not Tom Cruise or Brad Pitt.
