Imagine Chris telling his mom about you. He listens as she goes on and on about how she hopes you’re a “nice girl,” telling him to make sure you’re not out to take advantage of his money and fame. As soon as he can get a word in, he assures her that you’re the kindest woman he’s ever met; if anything, he has to worry about you giving all your money away to the many charities you’re involved in.
Earlier in my career, I used to look at other actors and maybe steal a move here or there, but as I have gotten older, I prefer releasing the idiosyncratic quality that every single person has. That is truly interesting. In the pursuit of pretending and making things seem real, what is really interesting is watching somebody on camera or on stage releasing things that only they could. That is really beautiful.
