I tore my right shoulder to pieces - three external tears, a labrum tear, and a detachment of the bicep tendon.
I'm the son of an everyman. My father is a teacher. He teaches physics at a boys' school in Sydney.
I'm a fisherman. I've always loved fishing. I grew up fishing for trout.
I'm not the best fly fisherman, but I can fly-fish, because I crack a whip. I learned to crack a whip as a boy... I have skills, mad skills.
I really enjoy doing charity, for a good cause, it's like the least I can do, I really enjoy that stuff. I enjoy giving back.
I think if I'd have been an actor who didn't care, I'd have less gray hair, and I'd be a lot less tired.
That suspension of disbelief that's required as an actor to live truthfully in imaginary circumstances is different to what needs to happen as a director, in the sense that you are the master of all the moving parts. You create the world in every detail.
There have been many times when I thought I was having a logical discussion with a woman, and then I'm left sitting alone, confused, trying to recount how it went down.
When I talk about character work, I don't really feel like i do much as an actor when I look at other great actors who win big awards for doing incredible transformations.
