The Oscar nomination made me a recognizable name to other actors and people in general.
People who are interested in the arts and theater are such a minority.
My face is my career.
It’s very hard to remain a student in life.
I don’t like that I’m my own commodity, that I am what I sell.
I have fun at work.
I don’t put together cars, I put together people.
I don’t feel that I have any great grasp of technique that I should pass along to people.
I only eat things that you don’t have to kill.
I make my relationships at work.
Work is the most nourishing thing so far in my life.
And my first film was Carnal Knowledge, another amazing experience, largely because of Mike Nichols, who would tell me you can’t do anything wrong because you’re doing everything right.
That’s when the great stuff happens, when you’re not checking yourself all the time, being critical of yourself and what other people are doing.
I know I’ll work, but not when or where. I never know what to pack.
An actor really suffers when the director isn’t prepared because you start running out of time for the shoot and then have to do it fast.
