I think if you play a character that is fearless, then it’s boring. I think that’s what was so incredible about Harrison Ford, is that he always seemed like he was never going to survive it, he’s always scared, and yet he always does survive it somehow.

I am not thinking that because people say I am great that I really am great. I am just doing a job, just like everybody else. The only difference is that a lot more people see what I do.
