I’m not a philosopher, but I’ve always felt there are no real good guys or bad guys; they all have special qualities. I think all mankind is equal, so I try to love my villains like I love my heroes. I make the villains charming and elegant to try to make people care about them a little bit.
I don’t identify with them, I feel sympathy for them. I am influenced by Jesus’ philosophy, which says love your neighbor, love everybody. That’s how I see it.
