Personal Quotes (2)

On doing live shows at the theater: "Oh, yeah. It's the best training you can do, as an actor. To be in front of a live audience. There's no stop, wait, oh geez, what was that line again? It just sharpens your reflexes. It sharpens your interaction. And it definitely sharpens your memory because you have to know an entire show from beginning to end."
I love the fans. They're the reason why these movies keep getting made. The only thing that bothers me about chatting with fans is the constant anal rape jokes because of this movie Vulgar I did. Other than that we're cool.
