Turned down the role of Martin Riggs in Lethal Weapon (1987).
Was John Glenn's first choice for the role of James Bond in The Living Daylights. But he was ultimately turned down due to his accent.
Suffers from myopia, a condition that causes the eyes to focus incorrectly, making distant objects appear blurred. 
In a 2010 interview, he stated that nowadays he lives "mostly on an airplane" and he can't stay anywhere longer than a few months. When not on location, he divides his time between his "main residence" in Switzerland, a winery in Provence and his 16-year-old daughter in Los Angeles.
The patented, intense gaze he often shows in his roles is the result of myopia at an early age.

Known for Highlander as Connor 'The Highlander' MacLeod
I was always trying, even in pure action movies, to find what was sensitive about the character more than the pure action. When I read Highlander, what interested me was the romance, the pain that this guy was carrying, not being able to die and looking around him at all the people he loved going before him.
[2010 - On if always being questioned about Highlander bothers him] No. It's like, would people like Clint Eastwood be upset because they talk about Dirty Harry? Or Mel Gibson because they talk about Mad Max or Harrison Ford because they talk about Indiana Jones? I think in some ways it's good to have at least one thing for which you could be really immortal, you know?
Acting is still, of course, what I love to do most. The beauty of it is that by changing characters, it never gets boring.
[Advice to struggling actors] The most important thing is to be passionate and ready to accept the pains that sometimes go along with the business.
It may be a mistake to say this, but I know my limitations as an actor and I know what I can and can not do. Robert De Niro can do everything. I can't. A "Highlander" movie is basically my thing. What I'm attempting to do is develop my ability as an actor and try to be the best I can be in the fantasy/action genre. I would love to do a "Rain Man," but I think ultimately this is my thing.
It's not a matter of becoming a superstar. Fame and money aren't the purpose of all this. No actor's going to say, "I don't want to be famous." But the main purpose for doing what I'm doing is the passion in the work.
