For me, acting goes to a special place; it's almost mystical. You have to let go of what you think is good; it's a jump into trust, and trying to reach without wanting too much.
For me, acting has often been solitary. You're all together, and then boom, you're gone.
For me, acting in scenes with other people is like playing soccer with a bunch of legless five year olds. It's not really fair to them, but what else can I do, you know?
For me, acting is a series of impressions rather than trying to find one line through to the end, which risks becoming more of a presentation.
For me, acting is about getting away from myself. So to look at myself is the last thing I want.
For me, acting is about the art of it and it's about being on a film set and doing your thing, painting a blank canvas.
For me, acting is all about the aesthetic. I just want to keep honing my craft. Not that I'm taking myself too seriously, but every artist should consider himself Picasso. Otherwise, you're doing yourself an injustice.
For me, acting is becoming naked in front of people, you know? And when you know in the back of your mind somebody is testing you, you cannot really bare yourself. That's a feeling I always have when I'm auditioning.
For me, acting is doing.
For me, acting is like a holiday. When you're directing, you have a strong sense of responsibility for others. It's exciting but exhausting, especially when you're like me: always wanting to break the rules.
For me, acting is like a therapy. I can express myself fully when I am acting and have blood in my veins. Even when I'm not working, I'm always living in my own world, imagining characters.
For me, acting is not a hobby. It is a career that I have chosen and was not willing to let go of so easily after seven years of hard work.
For me, acting is not a job. It is something I love. I don't do these things for awards or rewards. I do them because I love challenges.
For me, acting is play. It's just play and it's playing make believe really, really well.
For me, acting was a reward. I had to get good grades in order to act, in order to be on TV. I had to do well in school so I could work. To me, it was like an after-school activity, something to look forward to.
For me, acting was a way of releasing all of this stuff that I had inside -- and a way for me to tell the stories of the people I knew, so that their spirit could live through me.
For me, acting was a way of taking destructive energy and doing something productive with it, and in that way it was quite a life saver.
For me, acting was always a way to explore emotions -- to dip into the well and really try to reach rock bottom down there. That was the most exciting part of it. I hadn't found anything that really allowed me to do that until I came upon acting.
For me, actors have to have a character, an aura, body language. They're not models. They used to call actors models. But I want them to participate in the film.
