You are absolutely free to describe me as a turtle or something.
I was the youngest child and got a lot more freedom than my brother and sister. I used to wander, doing my own thing under the radar, but I didn't get in bad, bad trouble.
As an actor, to have achieved financial stability is amazing. But I always have this weird fear that I'm not going to get any more work; it's about not having enough money.
Lead roles are fun, but I'm especially happy other, more colorful supporting stuff has come along.
The supporting thing can be harder to pop in and out of. The hardest thing is the people who have to come in and play, say, the bartender for a day - that's a lot harder than playing the lead role. You have to pop in and get it right. It's a lot of pressure to just pop in there and fit in and find your footing really fast.
I find that the crazy narcissists, the selfish loons are often the most fun to be around, weirdly.
I suppose there must be some way in which I'm compelled to show some side of myself - or of people - that's paranoid and fraught and beleaguered and downtrodden, just as Tom Cruise wants to show that he's terrifyingly upbeat and terrifyingly heroic all the time.
Acting can be a really silly thing. It's like playing dress-up.
I like playing weird, kind of shady people.
I've very critical of myself, and film has been an adjustment for me.
