Personal Quote:

[singing in Inside Llewyn Davis (2013)] Sometimes like 30 takes of one song. It was an intense process but I love the music, and I'd been playing them 100 times a day, so playing them 30 was fine. I get obsessed with that kind of stuff. Sometimes I would smoke a bunch of cigarettes and drink a bunch of beer before the take. See more »
