One day when I was like 9 I heard the Beatles on the radio and I asked my dad who they were. He told me they were the best band in the world and I became obsessed. He started giving me their albums in sequential order and I listened to them – and only them – until I was probably in high school.
Material Girls was so different for me I’d never done a teen movie.
It was a wonderful experience to work with Sylvia. She pushed me to be more powerful with my acting and she told me scores of the most incredible stories I’ve ever heard. She is amazing.
I love seeing people having fun. Everyone over in L.A. is too cool for it. That’s the problem.
It’s cool to play a sinister bad guy who also has a human side.
