Personal Quotes (3)

Hollywood is fickle; your career can end pretty fast. If the acting jobs dry up, you have to have something to fall back on. In fact, that would be my advice to kids interested in acting - make sure you get an education too.
I'll take anything and slap it on a canvas.
When you make movies based on real life, you try to exaggerate it.
