It's like, once you've seen Tom Hanks win the Golden Globes, the Oscars, you've seen his wife, what kind of car he drives, when you watch his movies, you can't fully get really lost in them.
I watched the movie Cast Away (2000). It's a perfectly fine movie. But you can never fully believe that movie. How can we believe this man is being cast away? We know it's Tom Hanks and we know the color of his couch in his house in L.A. because we saw a picture of it in People magazine. His celebrity has corrupted his art form.
All the stuff with the World Trade Organization, the kids in Seattle throwing a bricks through Starbucks windows - I see it as a good thing. It's saying, like "F--k you." As long as no one's killing one another, I don't think there's anything wrong with throwing a brick through the window of McDonalds. I'm sort of inspired when I see people thinking like that.
If I was roped into a seven-year TV contract I'd probably hang myself. It's a TV show - selling cars, cereal, soda pop. TV is like that. The shows are incidental to the commercials. I always laugh when TV shows pat themselves on the back for being cutting-edge. I mean, an interracial kiss on "Ally McBeal" (1997) is cutting-edge? I've never been shocked by anything on television, except the news.
