1. THE OLDER I GET, THE MORE I REALIZE HOW RARE IT IS TO MEET A KINDRED SPIRIT.
2. IF YOU CAN UNDERSTAND THE INNER LIFE, THEN YOU CAN WEAR THE UNIFORM, THE TATTOOS, OR WHATNOT AND REALIZE THAT THE THINGS THAT ARE DIFFERENT ABOUT US BECOME SUPERFICIAL.
3. RIGHT NOW THE ONLY PEOPLE I CAN REALLY FALL IN LOVE WITH ARE PEOPLE WHO DON’T REALLY, TRULY WANT ME AROUND. NOW WHY DO I DO THAT?
4. I’D BE LYING IF I SAID I HAD CONFIDENCE IN EVERY CHOICE I’VE MADE, THAT I HAVE FAITH IN EVERY FILM I DO ON EVERY SHOT.
5. I HAVE HAD SO MANY BAD AUDITIONS.
6. I THINK THAT AS SOON AS YOU THINK OF YOURSELF AS A FAMOUS PERSON OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT, YOU’RE OBJECTIFYING YOURSELF IN SOME WEIRD WAY.
7. IF I DO THREE MOVIES IN A YEAR, I DON’T FEEL LIKE ACTING EVER AGAIN.
8. I’M HORRIFIED TO ADMIT THAT I JUST LOVE SALINGER. I WAS DEVASTATED TO FIND OUT THAT OTHER PEOPLE FEEL THE SAME WAY.
9. I KILL FLIES, I EAT MEAT, YOU KNOW, WHATEVER.
