Personal Quote:

[on making Blue Valentine (2010)] There was one day where we were shooting on the bus. That's a bit of a movie trope - the encounter on a bus - and yet when we shot that scene, we had a rainbow come out of nowhere. When stuff like that happens, and I know it sounds kind of corny, but you really feel that you are doing the right thing at the right time. See more »

Trivia:

In Blue Valentine (2010), he had co-stars Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams live together for a month in house that would be their on-screen home. See more »
