Anthony: I've been a working actor since age eight. It became my craft and career by high school. I did not go to college, but I'm an avid reader in the ongoing process of educating myself.
Anthony: I grew up in the public eye. I can't hide from that. I always embrace the work I've done before. I wouldn't be where I am now if it wasn't for those movies. I'm always baffled by actors who are like, 'I'm not going to talk about the '80s.' What? You're just forgetting that whole experience? I feel very fortunate to have been able to do those films. It gave me the tools I needed to be where I am.

Anthony: (on Tom Green's directorial style with "Freddy Got Fingered") Off-camera, he's very quiet. He'd often be walking around quietly, twirling his hair while thinking about his next shot.

If this doesn't make $100 million, something's wrong. I smell a sequel.
