I went to Second City, where you learned to make the other actor look good so you looked good and National Lampoon, where you had to create everything out of nothing, and SNL, where you couldn't make any mistakes, and you learned what collaboration was.
My favorite thing about New York is the people, because I think they're misunderstood. I don't think people realize how kind New York people are.
When I work, my first relationship with people is professional.
Awards are meaningless to me, and I have nothing but disdain for anyone who actively campaigns to get one.
No one really wants to admit they are lonely, and it is never really addressed very much between friends and family. But I have felt lonely many times in my life.
And I don't like to work. I only like working when I'm working.
Movie acting suits me because I only need to be good for ninety seconds at a time.
I go home and stay there. I wash and scrub up each day, and that's it. One month I actually grew a moustache, just so I could say that I'd done something.
But I can only take so much TV, because there is so much advice. I find people will preach about virtually anything - your diet, how to live your life, how to improve your golf. The lot. I have always had a thing against the Mister Know-It-Alls.
The studios don't seem to foster good writing. They're not so interested in that, but they're more interested in what worked most recently. They're definitely very serious about making money, and that's not a wrong thing, but you don't have to make money the same way all the time.
I think midlife crisis is just a point where people's careers have reached some plateau and they have to reflect on their personal relationships.
We're born alone. We do need each other. It's lonely to really effectively live your life, and anyone you can get help from or give help to; that's part of your obligation.
There aren't many downsides to being rich, other than paying taxes and having relatives asking for money. But being famous, that's a 24 hour job right there.
'Groundhog Day' was one of the greatest scripts ever written. It didn't even get nominated for an Academy Award.
Golf was my first glimpse of comedy. I was a caddy when I was a kid. I was on the golf course rather than being in lessons, but I can play better now than I could then.
I'm a nut, but not just a nut.
People say I'm difficult and sometimes that's a badge of honour.
Somewhere there's a score being kept, so you have an obligation to live life as well as you can, be as engaged as you can.
Don't think about your errors or failures; otherwise, you'll never do a thing.
The more relaxed you are, the better you are at everything: the better you are with your loved ones, the better you are with your enemies, the better you are at your job, the better you are with yourself.
I always want to say to people who want to be rich and famous: 'try being rich first'. See if that doesn't cover most of it. There's not much downside to being rich, other than paying taxes and having your relatives ask you for money. But when you become famous, you end up with a 24-hour job.
