“As an actor, you want a director who makes you feel comfortable in a place that you can really create and try a lot of different things.”
“I think it's important I stay connected to every part of my personality. I play basketball. I rock climb. I paint. I'm a little bit scattered, but it's so I can convincingly play all these characters.”
“Most actors nowadays are models turned actors. That's why a lot of young actors are terrible. You have to learn how to act. It is not something you can just do.”
