1I was extremely insecure. Modeling fed the shell of the ego, but it wasn't the spirit inside. It helped me put up a front, because that is involved in performing, but that was only the shell. It made it much easier for me to take compliments, but I didn't have the awareness of myself as a person. - How did modeling help his insecurities.
2I knew it was over. I was totally numb. And I'll never forget the next day. I was cleaning out my locker. I heard the cleats go clicking down the cement sidewalk. Then I heard the locker-room door slam closed. I was by myself. And I would stay that way for a very long time. - About losing his sports career.
3The physical part of my life is very important to me because it burns off all my frenetic energy. I have always been the type who could never sit still. - How important is exercise?
4Running and acting both have periods that are long and monotonous. With marathons, it's simply a matter of putting one foot in front of the other for hours. With acting, there's all the waiting around. But running helps my endurance and helps me set goals, to work in a direction that's character building. - The difference between Sports & Acting.
5I stopped doing liquor ads and underwear ads rather early in my modeling career. They brought me a lot of recognition and I got to work with great photographers, but I've tried very hard to keep my morals intact. I believe in the family, I believe in God, and I believe in my country. I'm pretty tight with those three things. - Why he left modeling.
