The star, now fifty years old says that his home life is very normal with his children. H also says that the future is his focus not his past glories. Speaking to the New York Post newspaper, he said:
”I’m a regular at- home dad to him — not some movie star. I play with him, go out with him, do all those parent-child things like any other father.
”I don’t play my old movies. Don’t look to make him see them. Don’t talk about those old days. I intend to maintain a normal, natural home life. I try to look at the future, not the past.
”The same with my Oscar. I’m living today. I’m a parent. I keep the totems away. My awards are safe. But they’re not in my home. The totems are in the past.”
