Personal Quote:

[on In Bruges (2008)] - When I read it, I said to Martin McDonagh, the director, "I don't think you should hire me." I said I come with a certain amount of baggage that has been well-earned through the years and this piece is so pure, I would love the audience to not have too much of a relationship with any of the actors. Thankfully, he didn't listen to me. See more »
