I wish [I could leave my actor persona behind] all the time. A doctor takes their doctor coat off and goes home. Sometimes I wish I could just shed this…. Go down the street and get my own coffee or go into a restaurant and just sit there. A huge part of my life force as an actor is just people-watching, and I can’t do that anymore. That scares me because if I’m going to start running on memories, then eventually I’m going to run out of the memories I had from before I was famous—about how it felt to just sit in a café and watch people who were just talking and not staring at me.
“Both of my brothers before I went on the red carpet — I was so nervous — they were like, ‘Do shots! Do shots!’ I was like, ‘That’s not a good idea. It’s not a good idea.’ And then I did it, and that went to ‘I’m peeing in my pants!’ on the red carpet.”
