Criticism is a surreal state, like a good drug gone bad. When it's bad you wish it would stop, and when it's good, you can't get enough.
Be yourself. Kiss well and passionately, and move like you mean it.
Men have been watching women make love to each other in magazines and films, forever. If you're sexually attracted to men, it stands to reason that you might like to see two men in a sexual situation. It's a real baseline dynamic! And it changes the power struggle, because women never got to see that. That's a bizarre sociological result of the show [Queer as Folk (2000)].
I'm more interested in the quality of the work than its medium.
If anyone can crack the publicity nut and figure out how to not come across hammy and contrived, I'd love to talk to them.
I mean, let's face it, it's 2000 and people are beginning to wake up on some level. I think that, as I was saying earlier, there's just no denying the impact that showing people the truth can have. It allows people to understand themselves, and when you understand yourself you can understand the people around you. And then you can begin to let go of all the bullshit that leads into things like world wars, racism, stereotypes, and bigotry.
You are preparing yourself for a scene, and the most important thing is to remain emotionally available and remain in the moment with your scene partner. You don't want to let your own self-consciousness block the flow of creativity that's coming out so that you can act and react, and play what the scene is all about.
I think it's good that men are being objectified because since forever women have been objectified. We're flipping the coin because things have been lopsided on TV and film for so long. Another good point to the show is that it portrays men's sensuality. They're not just all about sex and only sex.
You have to like your character, because if you don't, no one else will either.
