My dad is such a good man, hard-working.

Acting has always been such escapism for me.

As an actor, you always want to keep it different, change it up, and,you know, just to keep yourself inspired and work with interesting,characters.

Being at the pinnacle of my career is not to turn up in some multiplex,blockbuster.

Every job feels like my first.

My family believe you should never be flashy about anything. Maybe that,handicapped me a little bit, that extreme humility.

I love strong women in films that are allowed to play women and not male,fantasies.

There is a part of me that is not fulfilled by acting. It is a,self-involved life; it can feel shallow, but not very often.

We live in a celebrity-obsessed society.
