Forest Whitaker reveals that he sometimes fears he’s losing his passion for acting, as the drive he once felt while working on a role he says now can be absent.

Forest Whitaker: Sometimes I feel like I've lost some of my passion, and that makes me quite afraid. See, because fear itself is okay, because fear is an indicator of something happening, a change or something, and I used to like it when I would start a project, I needed to feel afraid. I stopped feeling the fear sometimes, and that makes me feel concerned about how much I'm growing and how much I'm connecting anymore. 

Larry King: You mean, like, too content? 

Forest Whitaker: I'm not really content in my life in the sense of, like, things being all perfect, but I do know that when I'm working on a part sometimes I haven't felt the feeling and that drive, and that's a fear.
