  •  “Sometimes, over things that I did, movies that didn't turn out very well–you go, 'Why did you do that?' But in the end, I can't regret them because I met amazing people. There was always something that was worth it.”

  • "Tweets? That stuff kills conversation. And people taking pictures with their phone or recording you, sometimes surreptitiously, is creepy. They come up and just start talking to you, and you can see the red light on their phone."
