His fellow actors made a significant contribution to the fact that he is now abstinent. “I’m clean because of him, and since then every day has been happier than the other. I love you and thank you again,” said the 58-year-old at the gala where Cooper presented him with the award for his role in the film “Once Upon A Time in Hollywood presented.

It was not possible for him to just limit himself. “I don’t have the ability to smoke just one or two a day. I don’t have that disposition,” he said of the radical step to finally quit smoking.
