Acting is real important to me. I love it, and it's something I care about.

My music is going to be true. I'm not out to sell records. I'm experiencing something, and it's what I feel.

I don't walk around like I'm a movie star because I don't think of myself as a movie star. People usually don't even notice me.

My significant other right now is myself, which is what happens when you suffer from multiple personality disorder and self-obsession.

I don't know a single person in life that doesn't have conflict.

I don't spend most of my life in front of the media.

No, I don't want to talk about River. I have nothing to say about it that I would want to be public.

There was a time when I read a script and I just got excited about the possibilities.

I don't really make movies because I want to see my face on a billboard or because I want to get good reviews or have a big box office. That doesn't really matter to me at all.
