"I can't just say one time of the year I'm going to do something different. I have to commit to a lifestyle behavioral change and just try to be a little bit better today than I was yesterday."

You take all your experiences of not being able to say what you really want to say, and channel that through your character."
"I like directors who have worked as actors. They know the experience."
