Putting something in a movie because it's in the news doesn't make it political to me. If you're not going outside the same old, same old, if you're not pushing the envelope, then you're not doing anything. A good movie is a political thing.
Love is a mess, at best, and I figure it can be very real in spite of all the things people try to attach to it.
When you act in a film, you're inevitably surrounded by people you didn't choose, right down to the set painter. I like being able to pick the family I'm waking up to in the morning that's going to make this group effort to tell a story that applies to what's interesting to me at that stage in my life.
There's a lot of mediocrity being celebrated, and a lot of wonderful stuff being ignored or discouraged.
