Personal Quote:

All my characters are me. I'm not a good enough actor to become a character. I hear about actors who become the role and I think 'I wonder what that feels like'. Because for me, they're all me. I relate to these characters because aspects of their personality are like me. And I just turn up the parts of myself that are them and turn down the parts that aren't. See more »

Trivia:

Was mentioned in two movies in 2014: Maps to the Stars (2014) and Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) (2014). See more »
