The two waiters, their faces changed. They were working their second jobs, they couldn't get home to help their kids with homework.
It's very hypocritical to constantly say, 'We want to keep our kids close,' then send them home with so much homework that family time becomes nonexistent.
Marcia Gay Harden

I love to work. I know that sounds ridiculous to say because all people love to work, but I love the homework that goes into acting. I love figuring out different ways of playing a scene.
