For me, finding out about life is the most important thing.», «I admire actors and artists who devote just as much time to their life as they do to their work.», «In a perfect world, I would love to do one play for every three movies.», The truth is most of the films that make a lot of money no one remembers, and I'm not interested in making films that no one remembers.», «Coming from a family where my mom is a writer, I just respond to how people speak.»
