- Watching Chris achieve all that success crystallized in my mind that it was what I wanted to do. And that I couldn't stay sanding floors for the rest of my life. [He is in flooring business]
- [About balancing acting in a complex movie] You focus on work at hand, trying to be present at the moment and leaving the rest to others. That works for me.

- I've seen sharks in the ocean, it hasn't made me get out of the ocean
