I still pray when I fly and all that stuff and it can't hurt anything but there's too many things in both religions that I don't believe in.
I just try to do things that I would like to see,to do stuff I would enjoy doing. Is it going to be a worthwhile way to spend my time? Am I going to enjoy showing up for work every day for four months or whatever? My family is taken care of. The rent's paid. I can buy cat food, and I still have money to have a nice TV and I get to live at home in Montreal. I've got no complaints.
I think the thing that makes the most difference is the fact that I literally lived at his house for months on end and he used to cut my hair and he is one of my best friends that I've known since I was 18. He's been one of my closest friends out here. He is like one of the first people I ever knew out here. We are the same age and we are both Canadian so we just instantly kind of got together. We spent months and months and months on end just touring around in his car listening to Coast to Coast A.M. listening to Art Bell in L.A. at night time and watching movies so it is just an extension of our hanging out with somebody else footing the bill.
I love Canada, but it is amazing that I always have to leave home to make movies. Almost for the duration of my career in the U.S., I haven't been able to get arrested back home. When I did Fetching Cody in Vancouver in 2005, I started blipping on Canada's radar, but it broke my heart not to be cast in more Canadian films since my heart literally has a maple leaf tattooed over it. If I had my druthers and I got to any level in my career where I could dictate where movies got shot, they would all be there.
I can't communicate to you how meaningful it is to be able to show up to work, be proud of what I'm doing, believe in what I'm doing.
If it wasn't for Undeclared I would have quit acting. At 17, I had, like, the worst year in my career, all I did was like two Chevrolet commercials in a whole year and I assumed that, 'Oh yes, well it's time to take all the money I made as a child actor, go to film school, and then I got hired on Undeclared. From Undeclared on, save one or a few titles, I have a resume that if I died tomorrow, I would be so happy and proud to leave behind.
Long before I had any business of being picky or discerning, I was. I remember I was 18 in Los Angeles, doing a TV show called 'Undeclared' and I was getting scripts, you know, for things to audition...and I turned down auditions for 98 per cent of them...From the very beginning I was like, 'No, I'm living in Montreal and I'm just not going to do movies that depress me.'
I just want to be in movies that I would go see. Plain simple and that's worked for me so far because like basically the past five years worth of credits I have are all movies that I feel reflect me and who I am and my taste and what I like in movies. So, I don't know, I just like to be in movies that I like. That's plain and simple.
Well, basically I started when I was 12 years old in Montreal doing different Canadian children shows, which amounts to basically relative obscurity in terms of an American resume. And then when I was 17 I got cast in the movie Almost Famous and I did two scenes in that and then I went back home and basically had the worst year of acting in my career, where I did two Chevrolet commercials in 12 months.
