[interview with AMC-TV, June 2011] My life has been the antithesis of that book "The Secret". I've always been interested in doing what I do. I love storytelling and I really enjoyed acting, but it never seemed like a realistic thing. So I always told myself, "Don't get your hopes up. You won't be able to do this for a living," and despite all the negativity, for some reason I just kept pursuing it. I got out of school and moved to New York and told myself, "Well, don't expect anything, but enjoy yourself." Luckily, things fell into place.
As far as my choices go, it's the same answer I give to what attracted me to this script. I try to pick characters that I find interesting and complex and that I feel I can bring something of myself to. There's also the reality of what's available to me and what I'm offered and what I can do. Interview, 2007.
I do not consider myself famous... I don't get recognized when I go out anywhere. I consider myself a blue-collar actor, just chugging away. If I am able to continue to work and maintain a certain degree of privacy, I would be very happy.
