“I don’t know if you’ve ever felt like that. That you wanted to sleep for a thousand years. Or just not exist. Or just not be aware that you do exist. Or something like that. I think wanting that is very morbid, but I want it when I get like this. That’s why I’m trying not to think. I just want it all to stop spinning.”
It’s strange when I’m going into a scene. It’s a whole different personality; it’s a whole different feeling. I try to build these artificial comfort levels. It’s kind of—a person comes out, like I get loud and talkative. I don’t get the jitters and I don’t get nervous, because I build that comfort on set for myself. Sometimes if I’m gonna do something really crazy, it helps me to yell or look like an idiot on set, so that when I’m about to do a scene, I’ve already embarrassed myself. I find ways to work around getting the jitters.
"I’m not the kind of guy who got into this to be famous."
"I’m from Los Angeles and acting was accessible. There’s always a place to wait in line for an audition and I kind of begged my parents to take me. My mom nurtured my career and helped me climb the ladder. I have had a passion for movies from a young age. I first got interested in acting when I was probably four or five."
The whole reason why I got into acting was my passion for films. But I really want to start film-making and start my own projects. Getting behind the camera is something I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve written a lot and brainstorm ideas, and I plan on pursuing them very soon.
"I don’t really look around and say, 'I've made it.' I just look around and think how fortunate I am to work with the people I’m working with.”
It could be bullshit, but it isn’t.
