There are many actors who claim their art is more important to them than fame or fortune. It's a mantra born out of guilt and a recognition of art-unfriendly self-obsession. But very few back it up with action, no matter how rich and famous they become. Yet, once he'd achieved a modicum of professional security, Kevin Spacey actually demanded that his name be taken off the credits of a sure-fire blockbuster. And NOT because he thought the movie so poor it would damage his career. No, before the release of Seven, Spacey made that request because he believed a credit would have the audience waiting for his arrival onscreen, it would detract from the shock of the story. It was hugely unusual behaviour, particularly as Spacey had earlier been a paragon of terrifying ambition. Then again - now a double Oscar winner - Kevin Spacey is a very unusual talent.
