The less you know about me, the easier it is to convince you that I am that character on screen. It allows an audience to come into a movie theatre and believe I am that person.
I've been trying to take this journey over the last four years of getting away from playing manipulative and villainous characters and playing characters that are affected by what happens to them as opposed to unaffected.
I'm not out there trying to get press for myself nor am I trying to convince anybody that I'm living any kind of a life. I'm actually trying to convince people: I don't want you to know what I'm living, because it's none of your business.
Sometimes the person who is the most logical is the person whom we call insane.
As an actor, you're always nervous as to what a director will do with something.
Directing a film was something I was yearning to do. I always wanted to see if I had the capacity to be a good storyteller.
I have always believed that the risk takers are eventually rewarded.
Life's all about perceptions.
