Giovanni Ribisi Topics
Hopefully it will affect somebody and will inspire something. I'm not trying to manipulate what people's interpretation of the movie is. But I think that for me it was about greed and lusting after this secular world. And I'm not trying to be pretentious, but if it can be an explanation of that world, then great.
I grew up with Scientology - my parents at one point were clerical. It's a pragmatic philosophy, not merely a belief system. Yeah, it's had media exposure because certain luminaries do Scientology, but millions of people do it who are not celebrities. It's not a threat or some cult.
You have to take into account it was the cell phone that became what the modern-day concept of a phone call is, and this is a device that's attached to your hip 24/7. Before that there was 'leave a message' and before that there was 'hopefully you're home.'
What's sad is that there is an addictive quality to that, to believing your own hype; to allowing yourself to become validated by others and no longer by yourself. That's the danger of celebrity.

I'm old fashioned with my cell phone. I like that human contact and I think it's important.
Dostoevski was on to something. You are the path you choose. You are what your vocation is.
We went to - I guess it was a legitimate boiler room, and I sat in front of this guy who literally was on the phone with two people at once. They call it double fisting.
Those people are unabashedly ruthless as far as money is concerned.
My mother told me I was begging her to be an actor when I was four. My father and my grandfather saw at least one or two movies a week; they were film buffs, so I guess it just rubbed off on me. And now it's kind of become a way of life for me.
I'm so critical of myself. I'm actually really, really proud of the film. It's really cool to see a movie at Sundance because everybody is so supportive.
