Thank you all. I just love to act. I really do. I keep thinking there’s something else I’ll get good at. I just keep trying to get better and thank you for this.

It gives me chance to thank a really great group of actors. Tom Hanks, Bill Paxton, Kevin Bacon were all prepared to go up to the moon while a group of about forty of us were in mission control working four or five weeks at Universal Pictures. And this was a great group of actors. Ron Howard assembled a great group of guys and we worked really hard together. [Applause]

And, I hope a lot of the ma re watching this because this is for you guys as well as me.

I am really appreciative - talk about support. This was – I just can’t tell you how hard we worked together and how much we wanted the film to work. Some of these h=guys are on the screen for all of two seconds but they were there everyday all day long working there butts off.

I have to thank Brian Grazer and Ron Howard. I’ve got to thank my beautiful wife Amy. [Applause]

I’ve also got to thank God and Mother Earth for the precious gift of life. Thank you. [Applause]
