1 How do you fill the gaps between movies? I have a pretty simple, boring life. When I’m not working, I love thinking about nothing at all.
2 You hate watching yourself. Have you seen your latest, Irrational Man? I haven’t. Paul Thomas Anderson [the director] got me to watch The Master, and I saw Her. Those are the only two I’ve seen. I thought I might be mature enough to watch and learn, but it’s still something I struggle with.
3 What kind of film do you still want to make? I still feel like I haven’t done what’s motivated me since I was young. And time is running out. At the rate I’m going, it’s maybe eight movies more by the time I’m 50. I think 30 to 45 are probably the best years for an actor.
