“I’ll tell you, the really humbling moment is the moment that you get home from the Golden Globes or the BAFTAs or the Oscars, and you sit on your bed, which is the same crappy IKEA bed you’ve had since you were 18, and you put on an old episode of “Family Guy,” and you have a frozen meal … and you’re trying not to get macaroni and cheese on your thousand-dollar gown.”
"I love the ’50s and grew up loving works from that time period and from those great playwrights."
“Show me a hero, and I’ll write you a tragedy.” ― F. Scott Fitzgerald

“My favorite movies are movies that I go in and I leave deeply affected. Whether I laugh really hard or whether I cry really hard, I just want to feel really affected in that moment.”
