I like acting; I like being lost in the creative process.
I was raised to be some kind of artist.
People in New York just go about their business. Maybe living there for a long time, it would get lonely, but there's something really nice about being able to go about your business and not feel like anybody is really paying attention to you or what you're doing.
So many things tear us apart from each other. That's the hardest thing, to fit with all the hatred and pain we're embroiled in. I mean, we're a very violent species, physically and emotionally.
I'm inspired by anything. Not even just art, just anything that's real and vulnerable.
As I've become older and more self-conscious, I'm more aware of films and the film industry. I'm sure you've seen that, but the publicity, the public side of this world is pretty scary to me.

I'm not interested in being famous or anything, but I'm definitely interested in expressing emotions, and acting and filmmaking can be great outlets for that. Filmmaking is an incredible art.
The only thing in life that really gives me any peace is just being lost in the process of creating something, whether it's the film or painting and drawing. Whatever that is, it is what I want to do.
