No one knows who I am and no-one cares. I could jump in front of a camera man and he'd just tell me to get out of the way.
I like to know where the camera is.
I play a role in front of the cameras, just like in the movies.
Some people, myself in particular, have an adversarial relationship with the camera, and it sprouts up in every photograph.
My preference is that, that day when someone sticks a tripod in front of you with a camera on the top, it is not day one.
I have a theory that the only way you can be any good is if the camera likes you. If the camera doesn't like you, you are gone.

If there were teenagers who had a video camera and saw what I did on a daily basis, they'd be bored out of their mind.
A movie camera is like having someone you have a crush on watching you from afar - you pretend it's not there.
There's always going to be that pressure when you're in front of the camera. When you're famous it's just an extreme version of reality and there's a pressure to look a certain way.
