Personal Quotes I'm more than an actor. I'm an icon, an industry. It was a great experience for a kid, because it was a bunch of kids playing on pirate ships and water slides, so looking back on it, it was the fondest experience of my childhood. - about working on The Goonies. "It did not feel like something that was going to take over my life and destroy it. It felt like a subtle flower instead of a manipulative demon. That's the mystery of heroin." (USA Today) I was famous before I knew my own name. I didn't enjoy filming A New Beginning at all. It was about 40 degrees out and they 'rained' freezing cold water on me. Plus, they made me keep my eyes open during the downpour. Danny Steinmann, who was one tough director, kept yelling at me, saying I couldn't act! [recalling the filming of his cameo appearance in Friday the 13th, Part 5: A New Beginning] I met my wife by breaking two of my rules: never date a girl seriously that you meet at a nightclub and never date a fan. Oh, I see people everywhere. Some are celebs, but most of my friends are just regular people. The thing is, even celebs are normal people too. Just people. I do have an Internet presence. Type in my name in a search engine and it brings up like 33,000 sites. They're all run by fans, which I supply the information to from time to time. It all happens together. It's all a musical unleashing. It's a way to express your ideas or your visions creatively. I think, as a producer in the film world, a lot more of it is business and dollars; most of the creative stuff gets left out in the dark. I believe that with music, it's a much more creative flow and process from beginning to end. As an actor, you're pretty much a hired gun. You are reading other people's words off of a page and doing what they want you to do. With music, especially when you produce and write it yourself, you get a vision in your head, and that's exactly what's going to be there in the final product. I am a vegetarian. I won't eat anything with a mother, or if it's dead. I've been a vegetarian for 15 years. I don't do it for health reasons. I do it because I don't believe in killing animals if you can get food in other ways. I would make a few more reality shows, I like the exposure...I can't lie! They may be cheesy, but they are getting people noticed, and re-noticed, in my case. My greatest gifts are my son and wife, I will bust my back to give them a solid life, one with everything I never had. I have learned so many lessons about sobriety, and I thank my 'Higher Power' a million times a day. Things just really are a lot more serene when you aren't messed up. People seem to just forget that celebrities have the rights to any other citizen. [on the death of his friend Corey Haim] You see these people making great statements and that's wonderful and I hope they're all there for the memorial and I hope they're all there for the funeral. But where were they during his life? Salary "The Surreal Life" (2003) $7,200.00
