Personal Quotes (3)

Acting is all about the passion. Nothing else matters. If you can't find the passion in what you're doing you shouldn't be doing it. Acting is not real life. It is real life on steroids. Audiences are not interested in the mundane. They come to see the passion.
There's a saint and a sinner in each of us. A Pope and a prostitute. The actor's work is to find the person within. It's not a coat we put on. Find the person. Let him out.
In fellow actors, I'm not interested in your brain. I want your gut. Unfiltered by your brain. That's where the work is.
