Gene Hackman doesn't care anymore whether he plays good guys or villains. They've just got to feel real.

"I don't care if a guy is sympathetic or not, that's not important to me," Hackman said in Sunday's New York Newsday. "I want to make you believe he could be a human being.""When I read a script and I think there is no way I can make it come alive, I don't do it," said Hackman, who has been getting a lot of offers since winning a second Oscar last year for his role of the cruel sheriff in "Unforgiven."
