After writing a story I was always empty and both sad and happy, as though I had made love.
We have a kind of pact. If anything ever bothers us, we don't hold it in for one second. From the first day we met, Jen would just drag me out and start telling me stories about her relationships.
The ambitions we have will become the stories we live.
In my stories, whenever there's somebody wonderful and charming and bright and intelligent, that's me!
Our stories come from our lives and from the playwright's pen, the mind of the actor, the roles we create, the artistry of life itself and the quest for peace.
Growing up, my mother was a very strong woman who was not very big, about 5'1'', but boy, you grabbed a tiger by the tail if you messed with her. I know grown men that messed with her, and through her wit and intelligence and her no-quit, she never lost a fight. That's very influential on me when I'm telling stories. I love exploring that.
I was an English-literature major, and that's all about stories and narratives.
Your body is the ground and metaphor of your life, the expression of your existence. It is your Bible, your encyclopedia, your life story. Everything that happens to you is stored and reflected in your body. In the marriage of flesh and spirit divorce is impossible.
Your life is nothing more than a love story. Between you and God. Nothing more. Every person, every experience, every gift, every loss, every pain is sent to your path for one reason and one reason only: to bring you back to Him.
I've never cared for the idea of a career path, or where a film might 'take me.' My love is for acting not money, so I only take on roles that I find challenging, in stories I find interesting.

I decided years ago not to read stories about myself anymore. Each one is a potential minefield: Whatever it says, you're bound to take it the wrong way. Why do it if you know it's going to make you miserable?
One of the recent love stories I enjoyed was Bhaskar's 'Bommarillu.'
