Personal Quote:

Although I hate auditioning. An audition, it's in a room smaller than this and there's producers and directors and they've seen 100 people, and they're, "OK. Go." And it feels strange. It's almost like you meet a girl and someone says, "OK, have sex right now." You don't have time to get it up. See more »
