I try to get closer to reality, to get close to the contradictions. The cinema world can be a real world rather than a dream world.
I've never been out with any of the cast of Coronation Street. We're all very close friends so it's very much a professional attitude.
I came very close to quitting my job for the Bush-Cheney '04 campaign. I seriously considered packing up my office and heading home to Colorado.

For some reason, some of my best solutions and ideas are triggered in those dark theaters, usually totally unrelated to what's going on onscreen.

Don't get too close, it hurts.

I'll never lose my roots. I think I'm too close to my family for that. I still make my trip back to Nebraska every year, and I still love going back to Texas where I grew up, as well. I've just kind of had to mature a little bit more and get used to a little bit different style of life.
