Personal Quote:

[on working with teenage actors Tye Sheridan and Jacob Lofland in Mud (2012)] They both reminded me that seeing everything for the first time is what acting is all about. So we were playing make-believe and having fun. It's good that they could see the lead arrive on time and when he did he knew his lines. They were definitely watching how I handled my business.
