 I hung out with Jay-Z and Kanye while they were recording in Sydney. I met up with Jay backstage at Oprah and he said Kanye would appreciate it if I popped in, so I spent an hour with them late one night. Beyonce was there as well. We were just listening to the new tracks that Jay is producing for Kanye. The songs are spectacular.

 I don’t mean a typical Hollywood film that happens to be set in India, but a Bollywood film. The script would have to be right, and I’d have to understand completely what I was doing. But I fancy having a go. I can do my own singing and I can dance a little bit. I’m in no hurry. If something comes my way, fine; if it doesn’t, so be it.

 If you’re carrying the weight of a production on your shoulders, you can tend to get a little serious. I had a very intense decade making movies. Everything about my life came down to what happened between action and cut. I was proving myself as an actor. I’m a lot calmer now.

 There’s a reincarnation in everybody’s life, and I’m not talking about being raised from the dead. It doesn’t matter what your job is, whether you work in a restaurant or a garage, you can get to a point where you focus so completely on your work that you forget that there’s more important things than that. I think, particularly in the West, we have this thing of living to work. But now I get to experience a type of joy that I never had before.

 I’m in a continuous death battle with my own body — I injured myself a lot on Gladiator, I actually injured myself on a silly little ice hockey movie called Mystery, Alaska, because I’d never skated, I’ve got wrist injuries and hand injuries from doing so much boxing. I’ve got stuff all over the place.

 There are no tights in this film. They weren’t invented until quite a few hundred years after when the story takes place. We start our story in 1199. Tights don’t come into play until the 1600s. I do apologize to those who will be disappointed that there are no tights.

 Cigarettes, for sure. I’m not really trying. What I’m doing is trying to bring it closer to the forefront of my mind every day. Spending too long at the computer is starting to become a big deal. I live in Australia but my businesses are in so many other parts of the world, I tend to spend way too many hours on a daily basis answering e-mails.
