I don't know, one out of every two marriages ends up in divorce so there's a lot of great people out there who people aren't happy with.
It's a difficult undertaking. I've been married for four years and I see this movie as a cautionary tale about people who've gone deeply out of communication.
People say funny things all the time during really serious moments in life.
People use the Method as a shield; it shields them from being vulnerable. I hear all these young actors who are like, 'I'm Method, I'm gonna go live in the house, you know, I totally get it, I've done it, I've been there', but one thing I know is it kills spontaneity.
The problem to me is violence. It's not cool to kill somebody or hurt people.
And my mother caught wind of this. She never had really tried to guide my career or really had any say in my life as an adult, but this was the one time she said she would never speak to me again if I quit acting.
For some reason, my whole life has been, 'You can't do this, you can't do that.
I enjoyed growing up part of my life in Virginia Beach. We had the ocean and the beach and a beautiful landscape. We were outdoors all the time and we played outside.
I live a bourgeois life.
But, the relationships that I see work - As long as they're telling the truth, and saying the things that you don't ever want to have to say to another human being.
I was bartending for a long time and going on auditions and was constantly being rebuffed.
Literally, I think I've quit acting three or four times, only for a few days. Maybe for a few weeks.
But in my heart of hearts, this is the kind of thing... this is what everyone is struggling with in their lives - relationships and family. To me, it's always an interesting area to mine. I'm drawn to it.
I've just been more interested in doing film right now and I don't want to go away from my family for six months, which was what I would have had to have done if I did the play on Broadway.
With indies, all they have is their script and it's very important to them. The characters are better drawn, the stories more precise and the experience greater than with studio films where sometimes they fill in the script as they're shooting.
