I love boxing. I really respect the guys and admire the guys who do it. But, I'm very, very happy with my career as an actor.

I would say that one of the really special gifts about playing an athlete is that it's the best motivation you'll ever have to get in top shape and stay in top shape because you know that you're going to be expected to deliver. ---->>>

So I believe in really working it out in rehearsal, and when you get to the set, just go for it 100 percent. ---->>>
