I don’t draw things from my own life when I’m acting. Ultimately, my job is to portray a living, breathing human being and to act truthfully under imaginary circumstances. I learn things from everything I do, but I’m constantly trying to better myself as an actor.
“My parents have Google Alerts on me. So
they’ll often times send me an e-mail and be like, ‘Hey did you know
this?’ And then I’ll be like, ‘Well, it is, like, my life. So yes, I did
know that.’ Or, 'That’s not even true. I don’t know where you read
that.’ I have Googled myself, yes. But my parents really have Google
Alerts on me.”
