You love someone, you open yourself up to suffering, that’s the sad truth. Maybe they’ll break your heart, maybe you’ll break their heart and never be able to look at yourself in the same way. Those are the risks. You see two people and you think they belong together, but nothing happens. The thought of losing so much control over personal happiness is unbearable. That’s the burden. Like wings, they have weight, we feel that weight on our backs, but they are a burden that lifts us. Burdens that allow us to fly.
I love to act. And oh-so-love telling stories through film as an actor. Even on my days off.
Im more a fan of my fans than I think they are of me!
The opportunity to be a storyteller is the greatest thing in the world, and I feel so lucky and really love it.
I did theatre all my life and then went into the film world. I then kind of segued into TV land, which is a different experience.
I think the people who probably have it the best are the people on cable like on Entourage, the Sopranos, etc. who have 13 episodes per season and breaks to do films and theatre. I think thats the most ideal life.
We actors have it pretty easy and pretty hard. Easy cause we have a meal provided to us every 6 hours every day and craft services. The hard part is staying fit under those circumstances.
I dont have a trainer. I have what I call the poor mans workout and the rich mans diet. I run for 1 hour every day and do 500 sit-ups and 1000 crunches, and I lift weights at the Y for 28 bucks a month, even if its 3 in the morning.
Actors only have our bodies, voices, and the text. So I think actors need to have a fit and in-tune body. I was always very disciplined in wanting to have that. Thats one of my favorite things – playing a role with a physical requirement.
I was always active, always running and working out. I was a wrestler and ran track and, out of interest, started boxing. Its always been a part of me.
