I don’t need an Iron Man Suit. I’m already a weapon of mass seduction.
I always thought genius meant someone who has a lot of character and everybody has a lot of character so I don’t know. I don’t want to be too humble. It’s not that hard to be good, you just have to do it a lot.
I think you end up doing the stuff you were supposed to do at the time you were supposed to do it.
I want to give myself the freedom not to have to be projecting my whole life ahead.
I don't want to be so confident in myself.
I know very little about acting. I'm just an incredibly gifted faker.
In movies, people seem to be more emotional than they would ever be if that situation was actually happening to them.
