Acting is sort of an extension of childhood. You get to play all of these roles and have so much fun. Playing an athlete would be so cool. Or where you get to shoot guns, ride horses. I wouldn't turn down any of that.
This will sound funny coming out of my mouth, but I like to play characters that have an intelligence. It doesn't matter if it's a physical intelligence or emotional intelligence.
I played Winnie the Pooh in first grade. I was an early adopter of standing in front of people and looking like an idiot.
I got into acting because my teachers kept nudging me into it. The power a teacher has to influence someone is so great. I can't think of a profession I have more respect for.
Some boys are particular about how they look. I'm not.
I don't have any sort of calculus in choosing film roles.
I'm a huge fan of television, and it's a really good time to be a fan of television, because there's so much good stuff out there. In every genre, really.
Part of being an adult is treating women like women.
I'm able to leave Don Draper at work. I'm quite dissimilar from him in real life.
