The best thing about acting is that I get to lose myself in another character and actually get paid for it.It's a great outlet. As for myself, I'm not sure who I am. It seems that I change every day.
I'm probably not going to get married unless I live with somebody for 10 or 20 years. But these people (Romeo and Juliet) took a chance and they did it. We don't have the balls that Romeo did.
I got attention by being funny at school, pretending to be retarded, and jumping around with a deformed hand.
To believe in love, to be ready to give up anything for it, to be willing to risk your life for it, is the ultimate tragedy.
I didn't know what types of movies I wanted to do. I want to do things that are different. I want to take my time with each role.
My career should adapt to me. Fame is like a VIP pass wherever you want to go.
Meryl Streep does things I would never have thought possible... Her presence on screen is outstanding.
