Sean Patrick Flanery: Privacy is my most prized possession. If you're famous, you can't be an asshole. If I want to complain about the service at a restaurant, I can do it being Sean right now. If I was Brad Pitt, forget it. I'd be attacked for being pushy. Now, I can say, "Hey, you suck as a waiter," because I've been a waiter, and I know how to be a good one. You lose a lot of your rights when you're famous. I cherish my anonymity. I'm not sure what I'll have to deal with if fame hits. I can hide behind my characters, but I don't want to be dissected as me.
Sean Patrick Flanery: (about car racing) Danger is a common misperception. I'm so well protected in my car -- a roll cage, a harness -- the chances of getting hurt are less than on the freeway. I don't do it for the danger. I do it to outstrategize myself. Like a chess game.
Sean Patrick Flanery: (about not getting me meet Harrison Ford) Oddly enough, that was the one episode where it played the flashback of a younger me, so Indy was like 7-years-old. I wasn't there. I didn't get to meet him, which kind of bummed me out.
Sean Patrick Flanery: If he did fruit loops commercial I would do it. I had a wonderful relationship with George Lucas, I would do an episode of Blue's Clues if he wanted me to.
Sean Patrick Flanery: (about The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles being released on DVD) I am very glad to see it finally on DVD. The series really opened lots of doors and whatever I have now is a direct result of Young Indiana Jones. If it wasn't for the TV series, I wouldn't be where I am now. It's something that I am very proud of, and one of those jobs that you can look back on and show your kids one day.
Sean Patrick Flanery: I'm very secure with my body, so I don't mind nakedness.
Sean Patrick Flanery: If I have a favorite song and it's something obscure, I'm almost offended if I see somebody that I don't deem worthy getting the same enjoyment out of it that I got. It's very judgmental, I know, but there are some things that are so beautiful you should have a license to have them.
Sean Patrick Flanery: I love the concentration of racing.
Sean Patrick Flanery: (On his appearance in the 1995 movie, "Powder") I looked like an androgynous mosquito-larva chemo patient.
Sean Patrick Flanery: (Talking about Sylvester Stallone) The wildest thing about Sylvester is that you see him as Rambo and he's all of one brain cells, he's one of the nicest people I've ever met. He's well read.
