I really do believe that if you don’t challenge yourself and risk failing, that it’s not interesting.
You get money out of acting. You get gray hair out of directing. Actually, I get more of a rush from directing.
Directing, I get all kinds of inspiration. It’s working with people. It’s a lot more fun.
Directing is: you’re overwhelmed the whole time. Your mind never stops. If you care about it. You wake up in the morning and you begin thinking about it and then you go to sleep at night and you’re still thinking about it.
My interpretation of a strong director is someone who knows their story. That’s what directors are, they’re storytellers because they’re directing where your focus is going to be as an audience.
