I wanted to be an actor. Maybe a comic actor, but an actor. That's what got me into acting was putting on an act, because in life, I wasn't funny and I felt on stage or in the movies, I could do whatever I wanted to. I was free.
But the acting process - create a human being - was real, not only to the audience, but real to me.
I don't mean to sound - I don't want it to come out funny, but I don't like show business. I love - I love acting in films. I love it.
I love acting, especially if it's a fantasy of some kind, where it's not just realistic, it's not naturalism.
