When people ask me if I went to film school I tell them, 'no, I went to films.'
I actually think one of my strengths is my storytelling.
I was kind of excited about going to jail the first time and I learnt some great dialogue.
Something stopped me in school a little bit. Anything that I'm not interested in, I can't even feign interest.
I couldn't spell anything. I couldn't remember anything, but I could go to a movie and I knew who starred in it, who directed it, everything.
