I find being funny very hard work. I am always asked about it, and I feel guilty saying that, but it's the truth. I love my work, but it ain't easy.
Fun is carefree. I am not carefree.
Comedy is created when someone is trying very earnestly to do what he feels is the right thing to do at that moment.
In Hollywood I thought I was large and klutzy, like the characters I played.
From inside where I live, I feel like I just perceive events in a certain rational way. I often find it sad or poignant, and it may not make me laugh a bit. But I don't mind inventing a portrait that allows others to laugh if that's what they want to do.
