1(1996) I liked The Three Musketeers (1993). I just didn't like my hairdo... It was wild, hanging with those guys. I'd never met anybody before who was close to my age and such a big movie star and had a lot of money. They had different spending habits than people I'd met before. Charlie (Sheen) buys antique watches like I buy tennis shoes.
2(1996) It's amazing when you look back at things you did in high school, and you think, how did we make it through alive? I don't do as much stupid stuff as I used to, just because now I'm being watched. I can't get drunk and act like an idiot the way I used to in college. I've got a ton of stories I could tell you about, but I'm not gonna. I'd tell a friend, but I'm not going to tell the public.
3(1996) The funniest thing was when a woman journalist was trying to insist there must have been something between me and Drew Barrymore. She asked, "You've never fallen in love with any of your co-stars?" And I said, to make her happy, "All right, yes, it happened with Jessica Lange. I tried to ask her out, but she's not into me." A week later, I'm watching the E! channel on TV, and it was reported that Chris O'Donnell is actively pursuing Jessica Lange, to no avail. This woman thought I was totally serious, and I was being completely sarcastic. I realized you've got to gauge the level of the intelligence of the people doing the interviewing.
4(1996, on Los Angeles) I really like it-there's so much to do, and I have some friends here-but it's not as exciting as when I first came here. I'm not as naive as I was then. When I spend too much time here, things get out of whack. Too many people here are too concerned about what car they drive, what they look like, where they go, who they hang out with, the whole scene. And when it comes right down to it, the scene here is not that fun. L.A. just doesn't seem real to me. Chicago does. My real friends are there. It's home.
5(1996) I was tiny in high school, the smallest kid: 5' 9", 95 pounds. I was a late bloomer. But that's part of how I got into this business, because when I was 16 I was going in for auditions against 12 year olds. Of course I got the parts because the other kids were so immature and the directors liked me.
6(on working with Al Pacino) He's so powerful. Everything about him, his voice, even on its lowest register, still radiates. He's a complete perfectionist. You think he's just a natural, but he works so hard. Every day, he was in the dressing room next to me and I'd hear him working on scenes for days-and constantly coming up with new ideas. Every scene, he wants 10 do 40 different ways. It's amazing, this endless creativity, you don't know where he gets it. How does he come up with so many ideas? It's overwhelming. I'll never forget being in the limo as Al was telling us stories about The Godfather (1972). Marty Brest and I kept looking at each other, like two little kids high-fiving. This is great!
7(1996, Movieline magazine) You'd think being in my position it would be so easy, just pick out a project, do it, no big deal. But you really have to take your time and make smart decisions. There's different routes you can take in this business. After Batman Forever (1995), I started getting offered these huge commercial films that you know are going to make hundreds of millions of dollars worldwide. And you can jump on that train if you want and cash in, make a ton of money, get a couple of sequels and some merchandising. But in two years, I think people would be just so sick of your face, that would be it.
8(1995) I almost got caught in the Hollywood web. They almost pulled me in. But I have a much better time going to the bars over at UCLA, drinking beers and listening to that whole scene. At the 'hot' clubs, I don't know the bouncers and I have no pull at the door-they don't recognize me and, really, I don't care. I've been to most of the hot places at least once. There's a lot of losers who hang out at these places. The bars are filled with people just trying to slip you their business card, who tell you, "Hey, I'm a producer and I've written some stuff..." The women are like "Are you important enough for me to bother with?".
9(on Reese Witherspoon) We hung out for a little while when Scent of a Woman (1992) came out. I did date her. It was weird because it was the first time I had ever really dated an actress. When I was in college, I never had a serious girlfriend because it was too much fun dating different girls. With Reese, it just kind of didn't work out. It was nothing serious, to tell you the truth.
10(1995, on competing with his acting peers) There have been times when I had to go audition and there were other people there. I can't stand that. When it comes to the point where I'm trying to get a part, I'm like "I don't want to talk to you.".
11(1995, on his clean-cut image) My family and friends see me as a real smart-ass, a wise-ass. The way people see me in movies, in the stuff they read about me, is kind of an idealistic view.
12[Comparing the experiences of making Batman Forever (1995) and Batman & Robin (1997)]: When I made Batman Forever, I felt like I was making a movie. When I made Batman & Robin, I felt like I was making a toy commercial.
13[on the Batman films]: Some day my kids are going to watch these and say to themselves "That's daddy!".
