  • "Kids always put their parents on a pedestal. Well, what happens when they don't turn out to be the people you want them to be? We had a great time on that film -- it was a lot of fun. Great experience. That guy James Gunn really knows what he's doing; he's real sharp. And all the cast is great -- I had a great time working with Chris."
  • "What you'd have to do is put your mind to it. You have to sit down and say, these are my issues -- these are my questions. I'm an audience too. We all run into our own integrity no matter what, as much as I hate to admit it. I need to find a way that this is going to grow and be fun and most of all for me it needs to be fun to find as we go along. Right now I got part of it -- we have to see. I don't know. I don't know if I fit into that mold."
