1[when asked what he thought about being voted 'Sexiest Man Alive 1988' by People Magazine] People could say a lot worse things about you than you're really attractive and you look good in a bathing suit.
2It's hard for me to talk about a legacy or a mystique. It's my family. It's my mother. It's my sister. It's my father. We're a family like any other. We look out for one another. The fact that there have been difficulties and hardships, or obstacles, makes us closer. --Vogue magazine, 1993
