Personal Quote:

I was literally losing five pounds per week on the set of Donnie Darko (2001). I was turning into this walking skeleton. I was sort of becoming Donnie Darko! I started channeling Donnie and Jake [Jake Gyllenhaal], playing Donnie, started channeling me. So it was sort of a subconscious thing going on between director and actor that I can't even explain.
