It’s mainly about working hard and proving to people you’re serious about it, and stretching yourself and learning. The mistake a lot of actors make, particularly young ones, is allowing themselves to feel that they’re the finished articles, the bee’s knees, and it’s not true.
I’m also a fan of ridiculously coloured and patterned socks.
I think it’s useful, as a famous person, to have as little separation between the perception of you and how you really are - because otherwise I’d be sitting here thinking I’m keeping secrets, and wondering when you’re going to find out.
“You do sometimes think… Maybe everyone’s just … putting up with you, you know. I talk a lot, and I talk a lot about weird stuff that interests me, and sometimes I’m like, Maybe if you weren’t an actor and someone with a recognizable face, maybe no one would be listening to you, actually, and nobody would find what you have to say interesting or funny.”
