Personal Quotes (3)

(On Longtime Companion (1989)) I remember every second of it, from the first audition straight through to the wrap. I knew it was going to be a groundbreaking film by the time I'd read the first ten pages of Craig Lucas's script, because I'd never read anything like it before.
(1997 - On his favorite films that he has done) I've always held Longtime Companion (1989) and Where the Day Takes You (1992) in a little higher regard than some of the more simply entertaining films I've done - they were films that had something to reveal to the world. Also, Living in Oblivion (1995) was a strange little achievement by a handful of people I really love.
(On remaining friends with past co-stars) I do. Sometimes they won't sustain. It's kind of like going to summer camp where you get that close and then a lot of times you'll never see people again. Diane and I just talked a few times in the last six months, I guess. It's not like we're hanging out playing tennis. But every so often, every couple of movies, you actually get a really good friend. I think Luke Wilson and I hit it off really good on The Family Stone (2005). Some of my best friends are from having worked together. James Le Gros and Edward Norton, these are the keepers. But I've never run across actors that are just jerks and can't get along with. I've literally never encountered anybody whose behavior is just off the charts or impossible to deal with. Everyone just kind of does their [thing]. I think that's kind of gone out of style a little bit to be [a jerk].
