Trivia and Quotes

  • Quotes

    • Stephen: (on Hollywood) At some point in my career, I'm going to get all these people to kiss my ass.

    • Stephen: (on girls) I'm young and crazy and a hormonal psychopath for beautiful women. So why not, in my position, go out with gorgeous girls?

    • Stephen: (on bad habits) I smoke 2 packs of cigarettes a day, drink lots of coffee, and eat a lot of junk food.

    • Stephen: (on ambitions) I want to have a career like Johnny Depp, Sean Penn and Jack Nicholson. I want to win an Oscar one day.

    • Stephen: I visited the set of Clint's Every Which Way But Loose when I was 13. There was a kid on the set my age. I loved the idea that he didn't have to go to a regular school. That's what made me want to be an actor.

    • Stephen: At the time, there was so much of me being the kind of 'hard young kid from Hollywood' in the press and stuff, and this role was not the normal thing. It was kind of a crazy physical transformation, but I thought it would be really interesting if I could go to my most feminine side.

    • Stephen: Big Hollywood movies are always the same; I don't really get anything from them. There could be some cool shots or something, but that's about it. ... I definitely go for things that are not right on the nose.

    • Stephen: I feel things more intensely than I can express. If I couldn't be creative, I think I'd go insane.

    • Stephen: Fame seems exciting but it can also be a total nightmare. And I'm not even that well known yet. I don't have the problems Madonna has.

    • Stephen: (after shaving his legs to play a transvestite in 'I Shot Andy Warhol') My legs are starting to grow back now. It's kinda cool to go under your sheets at night and fall asleep with no hair on, but getting my eyebrows waxed was more painful than getting a tattoo!

    • Stephen: (on Jack Nicholson) He's a dear friend ... such a loyal man. He's given me so much good advice. I care a lot about him. He's not only my hero, but I admire Jack in a way I don't admire most people. In some ways, I think I'm more vulnerable now than before, so I don't let many friends in. You can only have real people around you. And, for me, people like Jack make all the stress and craziness of the business worthwhile.

    • Stephen: The last two years have been really strange for me. Everyone I admire has left the planet. Before his death, River Phoenix and I were maybe gonna get a chance to work together. He died like a block away from my home. And I had to drive by the Viper Room every day on my way to the S.F.W. set.

    • Stephen: I'm a huge fan of Nirvana - it's one band that I thought was original and had something to say. That death really shook me up. Kurt Cobain found out about S.F.W. four months before he split. It was the first movie he said he'd write a song for. But now we'll never get the song.

    • Stephen: If I feel a part, I can sit down at the piano and create music coming from that emotion.

    • Stephen: I'm a huge fan of Nirvana - it's one band that I thought was original and had something to say. That death really shook me up. Kurt Cobain found out about S.F.W. four months before he split. It was the first movie he said he'd write a song for. But now we'll never get the song.

    • Stephen: Vampires to me have always been very sexy.

    • Stephen: I wouldn't mind being gay ... but I like women too much to make the switch.
