Personal Quote:

"I was literally losing five pounds per week on the set of Donnie Darko (2001). I was turning into this walking skeleton. I was sort of becoming "Donnie Darko"! I started channeling Donnie and Jake [Gyllenhaal], playing Donnie, started channeling me. So it was sort of a subconscious thing going on between director and actor that I can't even explain".
