You can think of Hollywood as high school. TV actors are freshmen, comedy actors are maybe juniors, and dramatic actors - they're the cool seniors.
A buddy movie has to have that beat where one buddy doesn't show up. They hit the same beats as romantic comedies.
I think there is a middle-child syndrome. I don't know quite what it is, but I think I suffer from it.
Acting is more fun than writing. Writing is harder, more like having a term paper.
The way Woody Allen directs, there isn't a lot of direction. He kind of might give a few gentle suggestions, but he really says right from the first day, "Just make it sound natural, and if you don't like something, put it in your own words." And [Woody Allen] gives you a lot of freedom and just very polite.
I have never taken myself that seriously as an actor.
