HILL: I hit you up after I heard "Easy Rider." I was like, "This is a new leaf turned." You're not holding anything back. And sometimes people not holding anything back isn't good. [laughs] But I hear this and go, "Okay. Fuck yes. This is Action."
BRONSON: I made some decisions a while back. I had to be my own man. I worked with my father [as a cook at his restaurant] for a long time. I acted real immature. And when I broke my leg, I just felt like, after that, I was just going to go fucking balls to the wall with everything that I did. I was going to make decisions and stick with them, and they just turned out to be right. When you take responsibility for your life, good things start happening.
HILL: Well, when you're just yourself and you're eccentric … I told your manager, "You walk Action into a room, people don't see some TV actor or some shit—it's like he's already a star. There's shimmery, shiny stardust emanating from him."
BRONSON: I'm like a diamond in the rough, man.
HILL: I just see the value, the rarities of people.
BRONSON: It's some rare shit, man, because I'm not your typical looking person.
HILL: [laughs] It's not that.
BRONSON: I appreciate it. Some people don't get it.
