I was the fattest baby in Clark County, Arkansas. They put me in the newspaper. It was like a prize turnip.
Acting is playing--it's actually going out on a playground with the other kids and being in the game, and I need that. Writing satisfies that part of myself that longs to sit in my room and dream.
I can't sit through plays and musical theatre. I just want to run up onstage and mess up their hair and turn over the furniture.
It's not that I don't understand it. But people think if you speak with an English accent it somehow makes you smarter.
Most of the movies that are easy to get financed are movies about models in gladiator uniforms and wacky comedies with kids who get caught with sheep in hotel rooms.
