INTERVIEWER: I remember reading an interview with Robert Downey Jr. after Less Than Zero, where he said he was afraid people would harass him because of his character. Has anyone reacted strongly to your roles?

“River Phoenix had a heart that always embraced you and made you live like every moment was a holiday. I think often of how fitting the name his parents gave him was. When you sit by a river, it flows by peacefully like in a Mark Twain novel, rich with endless possibilities. River’s kindness will never be forgotten.”
