I hope that I have to audition for every single job I want. I hope that I'm always struggling, really. You develop when you're struggling. When you're struggling, you get stronger.
I was genuinely expecting 'You're just a sh.. actor' instead of 'We want you to do it.' I realized immediately how much hard work it was going to be, and how much of a minefield it was going to be in terms of all the sh.. that comes with it. Stuff that I would like to not have any part of. I mean visibility and being recognized walking down the street. I'm holding out a naive and ignorant hope that it won't happen. I couldn't gag the 5 year old self inside of me. I said, 'What should we do?' And he was like, 'DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! Are you kiddin' me? It's Spider-Man!' My inner 5 year old is a New Yorker with a smoker's cough and a horrible mouth.
I think too much. Being in my body is much more satisfying than being in my head.
Are you kidding me? That day and night of shooting was one of my favorite experiences. I was actually proud of myself because I didn't care what I was doing. I was literally not judging myself. And it was so beautiful for a second. I've gone through my whole life caring deeply what people think of me. That was probably one of the first times where I didn't care for a second. And it was liberating. I felt more like a man than I've ever felt. That's what always excited me about other people's performances. Abandon.
Those events that look like so much fun in the photos you see, it's mostly people looking over their shoulders at everyone. They're miserable, those parties.
The actors that excite me and inspire me are not selfish actors, they do it with purpose. They create characters and tell stories with purpose and generosity for an audience. It's all to serve a story and the themes of the story. That's what excites me. I look at Daniel Day-Lewis, the detail of his performances and how lived in they are. He truly experiences every character's reality that he steps into, that inspires me as well. The potential for exploring aspects of yourself that have been covered up for years or aspects of yourself you didn't realize you had. To step into someone else's shoes like Daniel Day-Lewis does so fully or like Robert De Niro does so fully.
I see it as a massive challenge in many ways. To make it authentic. To make the character live and breathe in a new way. The audience already has a relationship with many different incarnations of the character. I do, as well. I'm probably going to be the guy in the movie theater shouting abuse at myself. But I have to let that go. No turning back. And I wouldn't want to.
If I watch myself, then I suddenly have a bunch of things that I'm scared to do. It just upsets me. I've stopped reading reviews, as well. If one is negative, you hold on to that. It was killing me. It was holding me back from being creative and being free.
I want to feel stronger than I've ever felt, and I want to feel more flexible than I've ever felt. I want to feel powerful. You don't just want to be a pack of meat, it has to be an open body. It does something to your psyche, and it does something to the way you move.
There would be a lot of really nice people saying a lot of nice things. But then I get to the one person who would say, His eyebrows look big. He ought to shave his eyebrows. He looks like a freaking Neanderthal. I thought, Thats so mean. I cant help my eyebrows, dude.
A Sunday roast, An English roast, with roast lamb, roast potatoes and gravy. And a good burger. There are some great burgers in Los Angeles. Theres an 8oz. Burger Bar. And Marley is pretty good.
