In the film industry you never really know if all the various ingredients will come together – sometimes they do, and sometimes they don’t. As an actor, you don’t have much control over those things. It’s a director’s medium in that sense. All you can really do is minimise the risks of being involved in something that might not work and look for something that also suits you.
You need to try to find a way to humanize your villains. Genuine villains, in real life, still have mothers and daughters and sisters, and they fall in love. They don’t walk around with a big sign saying, “Bad guy,” on their head. They think they’re good guys. If you can play that, I think it makes it more interesting.
I’m very organized and tidy in my home life and I generally do something myself rather than farm it out to somebody else. I don’t have an assistant or anything because I think I can do it myself.
I’ve put my friends and family through the wringer over the years, I have to say, by doing unspeakable things to people, not the least of which was pulling out poor George Clooney’s fingernails in Syriana.
