On his career:
“These movies are markers on my path and life. We all have them in different ways. Mine are a little absurd and happen to be movies, but all I have is the experience of those movies and they”ve all been extraordinary in their own way. I”m devoted to what I do and I take it seriously, but I have a sense of humor, too.”

On Hugh Jackman:
“I”d heard so many things about him, as we all have, that he”s such a good guy, such a nice bloke, but I had my own skepticism about that. But when I worked with him, the amazing thing about it, annoyingly so, is it”s just very true. He”s a good man. And as an actor, he”s so humble. I mean, given the position he”s in… people say success brings out who somebody really is, and he”s a deeply good man. He”s not performing it.”

On his sister Maggie:
“You watch your older sibling and you look up to them, and she was acting, and performing, and I loved that. Like, if I would do something that was funny, I could feel that response and I liked that response. By nature, children are performers in a way, and that was encouraged.”

On his favorite off set things:
“I”m obsessed with food. I love eating in general, but if I”m somewhere on location, I tend to find one restaurant and weirdly will eat one or two things that I love. Then I”ll know I”m going there at the end of the day to eat that thing. It”s like a strange catharsis to me. I don”t know what it does but it kind of breaks the boundaries of something that”s different to what my character would eat. I grew up with foot at the center of life and with a mother who believed in growing fresh produce and that food is love. The process of watching something grow, blood, then cultivating and eating it, is an extraordinary process in patience. I love it.”
