2[in a 2005 interview] As I've gone around in my life, I've kind of had to turn acquaintances into family. They start out as people who are working for you, but before you know it, you create real relationships with them.
3[on training to portray a legendary fighter in Hands of Stone (2016)] You couldn't find a more stylized boxer than Sugar Ray Leonard. He was an incredible motion guy, the way he moved around the ring, and I think my dancing will make it easier for me to pick up his moves. I've been working on familiarizing myself with the ring, sparring and understanding how to move. He had such incredible discipline and was flashy and classy at the same time. I want to be as passionate and dedicated in preparing for this role as he was every time he stepped into the ring. It's an incredible story to be told. The metaphor of determination and struggle is one we can all relate to.
4I like a woman who takes care of herself - it says something about the way she'll care for me.
5The best present a man can give a woman is his undivided attention.
6Strivers achieve what dreamers believe.
