Julianne Moore in Still Alice
“In one of my first films, Short Cuts, I am nude from the waist down. I guess it was scary. And challenging. But it’s not as scary as skiing. I only feel brave when something really terrifies me, and, in my case, that would be skiing.”

Bradley Cooper in American Sniper
“I had advantages in making a film about the Iraq war. On USO tours, I went to bases in the middle of nowhere in enemy territory. I was with the soldiers in their barracks, and I really got a sense of it. And, oddly, I had experience from having starred in The A-Team. I learned how to shoot guns for that film. After making it, an M-4 felt as comfortable to me as a tennis racquet.”

J.K. Simmons in Whiplash
“I’m now working with a bunch of actors that my 13-year-old daughter has crushes on. She has a thing for bad boys like Miles Teller in Whiplash, which is a little troubling. She wouldn’t mind if I did a movie with Ryan Gosling. Actually, that would make us both happy.”
