press tours by "getting wasted".

He said: "You feel insane, but I think the studio cut my days because I started speaking total gibberish. Just be a total liability."

He said: "Your only option is to do a superhero movie. You can do a superhero, or you can do indies. That's it! You cannot even do Nicolas Cage movies. You can't even do Con Air. I would love to do Con Air."

Robert has moved away from the teen heartthrob roles which made him famous, admitting he actively sought out obscure parts.
