Quotes

  • Ever since I was a little kid, whenever my parents would have company over, I would put on shows, whether they would be magic shows, singing shows, dancing shows, little skits. I would do improv. And then I started making my own movies. I was so demanding and so aggressive with all my friends: "No, you need to be lying in this position so I can get your legs in the shot." I needed it perfectly filmed the way I envisioned it.
  • "What do you really think happens after you die?" That's the question that everyone, everyone, everyone asks. And I'm so sick of it. But my true answer is, I don't know. And there's no way I'm going to find out till it happens.
  • I have a lot of quirkiness in me, as it is, and I say a lot of expressions, and people will start cracking up, like, "Where did that come from?" And I have no idea. It's just part of my brain that makes up these things, and they come out.
  • In high school, I observed a lot. I was very open-minded. There were many cliques in high school and I had connections with each group. I almost played the role of psychiatrist, just to know what was going on with people.
