One of my heroes is Mr. Sidney Poitier. In his autobiography, 'The Measure of a Man,' he talks about the difference between being a great person and being a great actor. Im happiest when Im acting, and Ive dedicated my life to it. Still, as much as I love acting, at the end of the day, I want to be remembered as a great person, first, and as a great actor, second. I believe that acting is a talent while being a great person encompasses so much more: being a good father, a good husband and the ability to show compassion for others. Theres nothing more rewarding than making a difference doing charity work or being able to be there for a friend.
