I just play to the actor, I don’t play to the character. I talk to the other actors as myself, as the actor, not as the character. That’s my approach. Nicholson helped me to start doing that. It was a great revelation that became an acting principle. “To be” rather than “To do”. You have to behave on screen as much as you do in real life. I had been thinking about it for a long time anyway, that I want to learn to play myself before I start worrying about getting into character.

Nirvana played near my house last night
I didn’t go
Instead I got high and watched a Lars Von Trier film
Just like Kurdt would have wanted
