I get cold – really cold – when I travel.
You know when someone’s over-flattering you in a way. You smile but you can’t believe it.
Doing the right thing has power.
I love 70’s music.
I tend to make low-budget movies but, yeah, I make more money than I ever thought I would make.
I hope that anyone I worked with wouldn’t exploit our relationship.
What I hope in my ideal world is that with each project, I’ll either get to work with a really great script that would force me to grow, or work with a really great actor who will make me better.
History’s a resource.

I think everyone’s experience with a terminal disease is so deeply personal and unique to the person, the context in which they’re living and the relationships that they have.
I think the way we talk about cancer has really evolved. I remember the way my grandmother used to talk about it, like a death sentence, no-one would even mention the word.
The thing about death is that it’s honest.
Traits like humility, courage, and empathy are easily overlooked – but it’s immensely important to find them in your closest relationships.
People’s view of cancer will change when they have their own relationship with cancer, which everyone will, at some point.
The goal seems to me at times just to be business first.
I believe that no matter what you do in life, if you learn the basics through theater, it will help you in everything else – problem solving, communication, discipline, all of that stuff.
