I used to have terrible acne on my face: red, splotchy discoloration. And mucus - I was constantly blowing my nose. Then one day, this woman sits down next to me on a bus, and says, 'You're lactose-intolerant.' It all cleared up in three days. That changed my life. Doctors couldn't figure it out.
Violence was almost an aphrodisiac for me.
I try to apply the organic concept to my clothes and bedding as well. There's nothing like swimming in organic cotton sheets.
When I'm in New York, I bike everywhere. I have a couple of bikes stored over at Ed Norton's. It's the only way to go. But in Hawaii, I drive. I have a little Volkswagen Bug, from the 'Drive it? Hug it?' phase. I run it on biodiesel.
The state of the health of the individual is equivalent to the state to the health of the colon.

I wish I'd done 'Dumb and Dumber.' I was offered the part, but I don't think I'd have been better than Jeff Daniels was. Another film I wish I'd done was 'Jerry Maguire.'
Pesticides came about after the first world war. Some brainy petrochemical money maker said, 'Hey, that mustard gas worked great on people, maybe we could dilute it down and spray it on our crops to deal with pests.'
Salma is just one of the great goddesses ever put on this Earth.
I've been in so many good movies that I felt like nobody saw; it's a pretty dreadful feeling.
Some people make a great film and then they can't follow up.

We've killed a million Iraqis since the start of the Gulf war - mostly by blocking humanitarian aid.
