Personal Quote:

I guess the characters I play may be at the more destructive edge of the spectrum, more damaged or whatever, but I find a lot of female roles uninteresting. I would rather play someone who's fucked-up and deep than someone who's one-dimensional and invisible. I would rather drive something and be crazy than be forgotten and nothing. See more »
