“Some actors lie to you about it. They watch their movies. It’s a ‘see me’ business, so here we are. I got into it because I love acting. But when I was doing theatre, I always wanted to see plays I was with them. And I couldn’t. So, with the opportunity to make stuff up and then watch it, yes. I watch it. If I’m channel surfing and I don’t have anything Got what I want to watch, or I’m not looking for something in particular, and I pass something I’m into, I stop and see.”
