I used to do films for money earlier. I never knew what perception meant. I didn't give too much attention to scripts. It was either to buy a house or to buy a car. There was a certain frivolity to the way I used to pick up things. I wasn't taking my career seriously.

I don't take myself terribly seriously. It's why I can be incredibly honest about my life.

I kind of took that guy seriously - I thought that sounded like a pretty good idea.
I take my responsibilities very seriously.
