I think that you can sort of have your own personal journey and you know, you can just kind of apply that to whatever characters you're playing.

Some suggestions for you :

You can tell so much about somebody by the films they make, and it's only while I approach this do I now realize how much of the filmmaker you can see in their films.

You know us crazy kids. We'll do anything crazy to our hair.

You learn from all directors, all these guys.

That's the power of film. If it's good, it can somehow make you feel connected to even the farthest thing from your own experience.

I feel like I'm always trying to make a movie about the Two Faced Man in some way.

I was highly influenced by violence.

Working with someone is the best way to get to know someone, especially if it's a creative endeavor.

I grew up in a town called Cornwall, Ontario, which is about an hour outside of Montreal.

I guess there's something about you don't know why you're attracted to a character, but you're attracted to them enough to want to - it's like when a song comes on, and you feel like dancing. You don't know why; you just want to dance. It's hard to analyze that feeling, and if you do, you get far away from it.

A car is only trouble at a certain point.

Actors become very professional and proficient about watching out for each other's light and not stepping on each other's lines.

I have a friend that is a WWII buff, and we sat and talked a lot about stuff like the war and the reasons behind it, and you now it's all in the uniform. Once you're in it, it usually does all the work for you.

My sister and I used to sing at weddings. We would sing 'When a Man Loves a Woman' to the bride. We'd do it right before the garter ceremony.

I think I was always bound to become two selves, if I wasn't already.
