I`m not an artist, I`m a hustler. As a hustler I`ve done many things. You should really believe it when I tell you that, `cause I`m not being sarcastic. I`m a total hustler. What that means is I`ve hustled to make a buck and I`ve hustled to change the world and I`ve hustled to take revenge - but it`s always hustling. I`ve never had a career or a single goal. I`ve never been formally educated. To get things together, to make a living, I constantly have to hustle.

I`m so in love with the United States. Not as a patriot. I`m in love with America like it`s my first girlfriend. The geography, the people, the smell, the touch, the taste, the gas stations. I`m madly in love with America. Madly in love. And I was the guy that people used to say, He`s so European." I mean, I never felt like that. I don`t relate to those monkeys. I just can`t relate to them. I`m a super American--Captain America.
I stopped painting in 1990 at the peak of my success just to deny people my beautiful paintings. And I did it out of spite.
I never wanted to be an actor. I never want to be an actor. I want to be a movie star. The whole idea of having to act is too gruesome. It`s too ambitious for me.
