  • I was trained in classic theater, so I love me some good old crying. [2]
  • Change is hard. A lot of times, at the end of films, even if they're amazing, I look back, and I'm like, 'I don't think anyone changed,' and that's an important thing to see. [3]
  • People can change, learn, and grow, and it's better to face your demons instead of perpetually running away from them. [3]
