The thing I’ve come to learn is that what’s great about small independent films is the intimacy and the communication that occurs when you’re making them.
You work on things and you have such faith in them while you’re making them that everything feels special – in a way.
The thrill of coming home has never changed.
Success comes in waves.
I feel I do my best work when it’s all there on the page and I feel that the character is very vivid as I read the script and I’m not having to create stuff and trying to cobble together something. If I have to do that then I don’t entirely trust what I’m doing.
Funny enough if you are looking at people these days who are putting Botox in their face and getting all sorts of plastic surgery we look at them and go I can tell you’ve had Botox. I can tell you’ve had plastic surgery. You look really strange to me. But no one’s saying anything. We’re just accepting the fact that they’re strange-looking.
It’s funny though with films because you can incorporate a variety of elements and sometimes that can work for you and sometimes I think it can work against you.
I don’t enjoy movies in 3D. I find I can’t engage with the story as well.
I’ve been asked to do action-oriented movies in the past and they just haven’t been right for me.
