“I could take Sean Connery in a fight… I could definitely take him.”
I needed an outlet in high school and came across painting. I’ve actually been painting longer than I’ve been acting. A movie is a collaborative effort, and with painting you just have yourself.
A good friend of mine taught me this. They’re called the three faces of the soap take. The first one is, ‘Did I leave the stove on?’ The second, ‘I did leave the stove on.’ Third, ‘No, I turned the stove off.’ It doesn’t matter what scene you’re doing. It works for every scene.
“Let’s get one thing clear right now, shall we? There is no Idea Dump, no Story central, no Island of the Buried Bestsellers; good story ideas seem to come quite literally from nowhere, sailing at you right out of the empty sky: two previously unrelated ideas come together and make something new under the sun. Your job isn’t to find these ideas, but to recognize them when they show up.”
