Personal Quote:

After working with Gus [director Gus Van Sant], I can't go back to just loving the visuals. On one level, I don't want the work to be photographic. But I'd also have trouble doing a comedy, where there's so much that needs to be delivered verbally. It's about having an opportunity to tell the story without words.[2004] See more »
