"One of the tough things about being an actor, probably the hardest thing, is getting your foot in the door, and my father handled that for me at a very early age."

"I'm very manipulative towards directors. My theory is that everyone on the set is directing the film, we're all receiving art messages from the universe on how we should do the film."

"Unlike a lot of actors, my father encouraged all his kids to go into show business."
