I don't even like to sleep - I feel as if there's too much to do.
I'm going to try to not let anyone put me in a box, and that certainly applies to the things I do outside of acting.
I love to bring humour into my work. Because comedy is not a huge part of the art world. And big-business film takes itself very seriously.
It's hard when you're doing a film based on a true story to really figure out what all those relationships were.
I was kind of scared of failing at acting.
I don't need a vacation in the traditional sense, like I would if I had a job I hated.
I used to read a lot about myself and the projects I was doing. When I was only acting, I wouldn't read any reviews because I didn't find them to be very helpful.
Because acting was my only professional outlet, I put a ton of pressure on the roles that I did. I overstepped my bounds, I tried to control things that were out of my purview as an actor and in some cases even tried to direct my scenes because I felt I knew how they should run rather than trust the director.
