The Wall Street star underwent radiation and chemotherapy treatment for throat cancer in October (10) and is making good progress in his battle to regain full health.
And he insists he hasn't contemplated his mortality as a result of the health crisis - because overcoming the disease has been the only thing on his mind.
He tells The Hollywood Reporter, "I haven't really digested it yet, truth be told. As I looked through the stats, I didn't think of this as life and death; I just saw it as an illness to get over. So I didn't dig into the bottom of my soul to see what I could see."
