Personal Quote:

It's strange to explain off camera what you have done in this or that scene. How redundant, like an artist explaining his painting. As much as I like watching movies I've been in, I can't watch myself in interviews. People shouldn't know how we do it. See more »

Trivia:

He actually dropped out of school because his mother wanted him to. See more »

Trademark:
