[on the importance of rehearsal for Thirteen (2003)] : I mean, some movies I walk in, “Hi, nice to meet you”, we get in bed and we do a love scene. And that does happen. That happened with me with Billy Crudup on Jesus’ Son

(1999). Actors talk about that a lot, but it’s not uncommon. And we could not have done Thirteen (2003) that way. It would not have worked.
I always feel that I am the advocate for my character. More than anyone else on the set, including the director. I’m there to protect my character, in a way.

I often get asked to direct and I’ve never taken anyone up on it. It would be very interesting and I would learn so much. But it’s a very confrontational job – I mean, directors are forced to confront themselves, and I don’t think there’s really a way to prepare for the pressure of directing. And I have seen quite a few good people crash and burn at the job. Nervous breakdowns, crying, screaming fits – people buckle, so it’s always scared me. But it’s intriguing.
