In this respect, how does Maddox react, your elder son, when he sees your face on huge posters or in coverage of magazines?
We had a big debate on this subject. It is finally understood that it was preferable to see coverage of the doctors, of firefighters, of discoverers, of individuals who bring something concrete, which betters our world, the types which save people, that sacrifice themselves for a good reason. They are the true heroes.
I either do not want to be received as a monument, as an icon or to become a statue on which the pigeons will defecate (laugh). Between us, I, rather have impression to be a normal guy, trap in the body of a star of cinema. The actors are treated as very special persons. Suddenly, some of my colleagues live in permanent lie. They imagine to be elected, different, and it is trap. I would have been able to be taken in this trap if I had not had around me friends or members of my family – and especially my children! To bring me back down to Earth. Through them, I reinvented myself. I have to admit, I’m a dream seller.
And what do you think you provide them?
Equilibrium, the joy of life, desire to bloom, to grow. I love making them discover nature. Personally speaking, to live in harmony with environment, is better than to go to the Prozac! I try especially hard to find them new games or tournaments, every day. And, believe me, it is necessary to have imagination and also health, because if there is definitely something that do not support my children, it is routine!
This is the last part. A big thank you for translating Natlc and Gracie! Read more/discuss.
