I'm very happy to be involved with great filmmakers.
Suddenly, I'm in movies that people are excited about, and that is a nice change.
When accepting or preparing for a role, fear is the motivating factor.
I remember at the premiere of my second movie I started crying. I thought, I'm so bad that I either have to stop this and do something else or learn what I'm doing.
I have to tell you, you can't have an ego when you're an actor. A lot of actors have them, but in reality most of those people are just sensitive artists dying for a hug and a compliment.
Anything that is absurd I see as a Coen brothers' influence! The Coen brothers are my favorite people period.
