On Naomi:
“To me, we”re married, though I guess that, legally, we”re a domestic partnership. I”m just happy we”re a great couple.”

On not being considered as a “movie star”:
“I”m flattered but that seems like a bit of a stretch. When I hear that term, I think about people like Johnny Depp or Angelina Jolie. Actually, I think of people like Gary Cooper, Bette David, Jimmy Stewart, Cary Grant. I mean, I act, I”m a parent, I”m an entrepreneur. I don”t know if you have anyone anymore who is exclusively a movie star.”

On going into TV acting:
“I was not interested in television. And I was less interested in a TV show that was shot in L.A., because I”m a New Yorker. It was a really good script; there was no way around that.”
