On his wife and “dream girl” Lisa Bonet: She was “literally my childhood crush. I mean, I didn’t tell her that. I didn’t let her know I was a stalker until after we had the kids.”

On how his first role on Baywatch Hawaii lit the acting spark: “I fell in love with the art of acting. But no one took me seriously. Baywatch isn’t known for its…quality of acting. I couldn’t get an agent to save my life.”

On self-doubt: “If someone says something isn’t possible, I’m like, ‘Listen here, I married Lisa Bonet. Anything is fucking possible.’”

On his acting career: “I’m not known for my acting. I’m known for action. I don’t say a lot of things or use big sentences. I’m not ‘very smart.’”

On movie stars: “I think of Brad Pitt as a movie star. Like George Clooney is a movie star. Those guys are like, boom.” [He just worked with Timothée Chalamet on Denis Villeneuve’s Dune, coming out in December 2020.] “I would never be able to handle what he does. He’s so fucking talented, man. I don’t know. I’m a little dumber, needed some time. Which is probably the best for me, because it would have been bad if it happened when I was younger. I just would have fucked it all up.”
