I never read reviews of something I want to see.
I don't spend sleepless nights over getting very bad reviews.
To my undying shame, I do read reviews. I don't read them all, but I like to get some kind of idea how things are going.
I don't read reviews because if they're bad I'm devastated and if they're good I get a big head.
I never read reviews at all. I'm proud of the work I did.
As authors, we all expect criticism from time to time, and we all have our ways of coping with unfriendly reviews.
I did some film reviews for small papers in Finland and things like that to be able to keep living here.
I found out about reviews early on. They're mostly written by sad men on bad afternoons. That's probably why I'm less angry than some writers, who are so narcissistic they consider every line of every review, even a thoughtful one, as major treason.
When I got into this, I never thought about reviews. I never thought about what people would say about me, I was just a young guy who was excited to become a comedian and an actor, and I just wanted to get to do what I got to do.
I mean, when you're tired of book reviews, you're tired of life.
I started my own magazine with drawings, commentary, news, film reviews and drawings.
Bad reviews come with everything. I've been getting them my whole life.
Reviews about film acting are very... tricky, because movies are such a collaborative thing.
I don't like it when reviews aren't about the movie. When they're about how much money somebody made, or who they're sleeping with, or if they got the job via some connection, or about how Fox is putting X amount of dollars into it.
I don't do shows. I don't have reviews. I'm not putting the clothes on every celebrity so that by the time they reach the store the customers are sick of seeing them.
