My faith doesn't go over real well in Hollywood.
It's very hard to accept that stoning still exists in the world today.
Mel Gibson doesn't need your judgment, he needs your prayers.
In my 33rd year, I was called to play Jesus.
In the world we make good as evil and evil as good.
I'm a craftsman. I'm an actor.
I was a basketball player. I'm a gym rat. I'm always in the gym playing.
I try to be the best man I can for the day.
I married a woman who is much better than me, I'm very fortunate to be with her and I know I'll be happy with her the rest of my life.
I still put my pants on the same way. I still walk on my pool twice a day.
I really enjoy talking to actors or filmmakers that enjoy that process of creating and how they go about doing it.
I know I'm not an anti-Semitic person.
I just try to be the best Catholic.
I felt unworthy to play Jesus. I just accepted the responsibility and said, 'What actor wouldn't want to play this role?'
I don't want people to see me - I want them to see Jesus.
I don't really prepare for each role the same way.
I do what I do, and I do it well, and focus and take it one moment at a time.
I didn't want to be an actor.
I always believed in God, I would go to mass most of the time, but I had no idea of the calling to holiness.
I came from a town of maybe 30,000 people.
I always look for reality. I look for plain truthful roles.
Faith to me it’s believe without seeing, it’s how you live your life, how you are authentic.
Christ died for the truth.
Conversion is a daily thing.
Anything that I undergo, I look at as redemptive suffering.
I meditate on God's life and I read the scriptures. I read something about Him, go through it and spend a lot of time by myself.
I know we didn't make an anti-Semitic film. This is what the Gospels are. And it's none of my business what other people think of me.
I also hope that I am occasionally involved in projects that touch other people in ways that make their lives a little better, more interesting for the moment, that makes them think.
Every day I'm trying to be more humble and how do you do that? I guess, every day, we have mass. Every day, I pray the rosary. That's what I do.
At the worst it was eight hours of makeup, and I couldn't sit down; I was in this crouched position. [on the traumas of being an actor in full make up]
A woman in Mexico wanted me to heal her. But I can't heal anybody. I just put my hand on her and said, 'Thank you for seeing the film.'
