I get nervous calling myself an artist. I feel I'm more like an interpreter or a violinist you know.

I hate the [Oscar] campaigning thing. It's unseemly. You should be honored for something. It shouldn't be for whose campaign was better.
Acting is not about being someone different. It's finding the similarity in what is apparently different, then finding myself in there.
Expensive clothes are a waste of money.
If I am not confident that I can portray the character perfectly on screen, I won't even try.
I can't stand most things that I see.
Show business has been really, really good to me because I can work and take a lot of time off, and I'm extremely undisciplined person.
