It's very hard to remain a student in life.
The Oscar nomination made me a recognizable name to other actors and people in general.
It's hard to regulate the speed at which you can achieve something creative and emotional.
Work is the most nourishing thing so far in my life.
An actor really suffers when the director isn't prepared because you start running out of time for the shoot and then have to do it fast.
I make my relationships at work.
I have fun at work.
I don't like that I'm my own commodity, that I am what I sell.
I don't put together cars, I put together people.
Acting is pretty much my whole life.
People who are interested in the arts and theater are such a minority.
My face is my career.
I know I'll work, but not when or where. I never know what to pack.
I only eat things that you don't have to kill.
That's when the great stuff happens, when you're not checking yourself all the time, being critical of yourself and what other people are doing.
I don't feel that I have any great grasp of technique that I should pass along to people.
And my first film was Carnal Knowledge, another amazing experience, largely because of Mike Nichols, who would tell me you can't do anything wrong because you're doing everything right.
