I think the greatest way to learn is to learn by someone's example.
I've been pretty fortunate everybody I've worked with has been pretty ego-free and they're just there to do the work and they're famous because they do good work. And the people I've run into have generally been pretty giving, caring people. It's easy to connect with that.
I think fame is a really complicated thing. It can be a great challenge to handle the difficult parts of it and strengthen your character so you don't get affected in a negative way by it. And I'm scared and excited and hesitant and anxious. I'm conflicted about it, truly.
Every actor has to establish a presence that not only fits the overall needs of the story but allows him to interact with other actors in a credible and meaningful way. Every actor wants to work under conditions and with material that enables them to create and use their craft.
You're asking me to give insight into my personality or my philosophy of acting. I just don't think that deeply about it. What it means when I do this or that - I don't know. That's coming outside of myself. I prefer to live my life from inside of me, rather than come outside.
