On American sets, you work 12-, 14-, 16-hour days sometimes. All that volume over a short course of time can actually be less conducive to telling a story accurately.
The villain in 'Call Me by Your Name' is the tragedy of love - what seems to be part of the deal you sign with someone when you experience an amazing time with them.
I should become a peach brand ambassador.
These are such First World problems, but there's a certain claustrophobia to New York. You don't escape in the East Village, but it at least feels full of camaraderie and youth - or full of camaraderie and youth in an East Village that is as full of Chase banks and Starbucks as the Upper West Side, or anywhere else in Manhattan.
I don't like to know exactly what I'm going to do in a scene, because the most interesting moments as an audience member are moments of truthful spontaneity.
There is an audition floating around somewhere that I did for 'Bates Motel.'
My sister was in ballet growing up. I spent almost the entirety of 7 through 12 backstage at Lincoln Center, just running around, waiting for 'The Nutcracker' to end.
I miss the sense of belonging on a film as much as I did on 'Call Me By Your Name.'
My favorite kind of acting scenes, or at least where I think people shine the brightest, are odes to Meisner technique scenes where people are face-to-face, and it's almost like a repetition exercise.
I've seen Hugh Jackman in a thousand Broadway shows.
Ninety-eight per cent of all human communication is non-verbal.
I'm sure no one really wants to think of themselves as a child actor.
Sometimes if I'm in my head before a take, I'll just like to reach out to the closest thing to me - the wall or a sharp edge - and just push into it. That way, my physical experience is totally contemporaneous and not in the clouds.
I did a year at Columbia, and I just kind of floundered. Maybe it wasn't the right place for me.
I love the East Village.
I don't think enough people admit that there's just something fun about being in front of people. And that's not a self-centered, egotistical thing.
My dad's French, and I spent my summers in France growing up. So I speak French fluently, and obviously, I speak English because I was raised in New York, and I grew up here.
Learning the Italian was tough. I tried to really come at from a purist perspective, really learn the grammar, syntax and conjugations.
I've always felt like there was less creative space on sets with guardians. I just felt independent at a young age.
We're only here for so long. Be happy, man. You could get hit by a truck tomorrow.
