I grew up with all kinds of people.
When Lucas was doing Star Wars, he didn’t have a 50 million person Facebook following where he could just sift through feedback to try to get an idea for what he was going to do next. It’s a luxury we have today.
What was bizarre, when I was younger, I never watched TV. I would rather watch a movie 100 times than to watch a TV show, just to find another nuance. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched ‘On the Waterfront’, just to find a flaw so that I can learn and try to improve my thing.
I’m a boy who appreciates a good body, regardless of the make.
I am flattered that they think that many people would enjoy my work. I don’t approach any genre a different way than I may approach another one. I treat every role I do like a role worthy of applying whatever kind of tactic, process and talent I have.
You know when something feels so good but you’re afraid to feel good about it? So you kinda hold back? Everyone says, Congratulations, you must be so happy. And you say something stupid like, I’m just doing what little I can with what little I have.
I’m a New Yorker. I always have issues with trust – you adopt it from being a New Yorker.
I love women more than anything.
The majority of the filmmaking process is in pre-production. The more you’ve planned out the more freedom there is on set to find new stuff, to play around, find new jokes and let the actors kind of breathe – but it needs to come from a place where it’s completely structured.
The whole year I was in LA I got into telemarketing and learned how to make money. Five years later that skill helped me make my first film.
Choosing the car you drive is like choosing your wardrobe, maybe even more important.
When I was a child actor, I had the fear that I was going to be cast as the tree.
