Does your desire for anonymity color your decisions at all?  No, it doesn’t color my decisions so much as, you know, I’ve been kindly  invited to talk shows and things, but look, it’s all for selfish  reasons. I just want to be believable on screen.  It’s really hard for  me to believe someone that I know too much about, I like to retain an  air of mystery about myself, which is great to talk about in an  interview because  it’s all very ironic! I’m here against my will! I’m  tied to the chair! But really, I want to help this movie and it’s a joy  to discuss things, but we live in an age where things travel so quickly.  It used to be you could do an interview for the Peoria newspaper, and  it wasn’t going to go anywhere. But now everything you say or do is  potential fodder taken out of context. It’s hard for me to believe a  movie star in a role role, no matter how great an actor they are.  Especially if I know too much about them.
