"An actress friend of mine shared a great trick. She told me to stick my tongue behind my teeth when I smile to keep from over-smiling. If you smile without doing it, sometimes your gums show a little too much. It's an actor's trick!"
"You know, it's recently come into focus for me why I want to be an actor: It's because of the connection I feel to people."
"Put others before yourself, unselfish love, do unto others as you would have done to you."
"If someone does something bad to you, you do something worse to them so they never mess with you again."
"The most important thing in my life, and the thing I try to focus on, is to try not to live a life of cruelty. That means trying to make sure I look people in the eye when I meet them. Sometimes you jump in a taxi, or maybe you only have two minutes with someone, and you never see them again. I try to always look them in the eye and have a real experience of what it is to communicate with someone."
"It's tough, acting. You have to walk two lines of a tightrope. There's the all-consuming fear of failure: I'm about to fall flat on my face. There's that and there's also confidence - you have to be confident in order to try things - and they fight each other all the time."
"I feel like the bigger risks that I take, the more I learn. I know that I learn more from my failures than successes."
