"I was a couple of films in before I realized, ‘Oh gosh, this must be who I am. I guess I’ll never be that other thing.’ It’s kind of a sad day. Before you’ve done anything, the world is completely open, just like any actor starting out saying, ‘Oh, I want to be Meryl Streep or Robert De Niro.’ At some point you look in the mirror and go, ‘Shit, okay, here’s who I am. I’m not that, but I am this.’ You sense your limitations and learn to live with it."
- Richard Linklater on knowing what kind of filmmaker you want to be

Well, after I’ve been to university, I’m going to be French, and I’m going to Paris, and I’m going to smoke and listen to Jacques Brel, and I won’t speak, ever. C’est plus chic comme ça.
my cousin just got married over the weekend and his divorce from his ex-wife was just finalized last month. now he’s mad that no one showed up to his wedding (he literally gave us a month warning that he was going to get married again). i cannot believe this boy.

I was tagged by phoenixings (thank you btw!!!!) to do the handwriting thing!! So here it is:
I don’t feel very manly. I don’t feel rugged and strong and capable in real life, not how I imagine a man ought to be. So I seek it, to mimic it and maybe understand it, or maybe to draw it into my own reality. People who are scary, they terrify me, but I can imitate them. I’m not a fighter. I’m a petite little bourgeois boy from London. I don’t fight, I mimic.

If you want this bad enough and you want it for the right reasons, the strong will survive. My reason is the pure love, the joy of acting. ~ Aaron Paul for Flaunt (X)
