I feel like, once you’re doing a job, you shouldn’t talk about it.
I sort of grew up doing theater. And that’s how I got into film, actually.
I mean, to feel in good hands as an actor… it’s the best feeling.
I like movies a lot, and I feel really excited when I see a movie that moves me the right way.
I like listening to my playlist on the iPod. I don’t want radio with commercials.
As an actor, I always feel you basically have to be able to delude yourself.
I’ve definitely had mentors, whether parents or friends or actors who I like.
Have I seen any plays that I’ve been in? Uh, you know, might be a little weird.
To be called a genius at 17 or 18 years old can sometimes cause arrested development.
‘Little Miss Sunshine’ was really important to me.
A lot of people think I must be weird because of the films I’ve done. I get that.
I always ask for more takes. I like doing takes, so I’ll do as many as I can.
The idea of writer’s block or not having inspiration is totally terrifying to me.
The hardest thing about working with your partner is that the work starts to become first.
New York is kind of a mythological city in may ways.
I love Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath and Guns N’ Roses and AC/DC.
It’s a funny thing. You sort of never figure it out with acting. You’re always learning.
In life, you have to keep certain parts of yourself in check because you want to be a decent human being. But one of the guilty pleasures of acting is that sometimes you get to let a little something out that you don’t in life because it’s not right.
I do like the idea of consequence and how our actions play themselves out, but I am completely scared of knowing what the future would be like. I would never go near a fortune teller, even though it’s probably not even real. I just don’t wanna know.
I’d love to do a really broad comedy at some point.
