Stephen Myers | The Ides of March
“When you make a mistake, you lose the right to play.”
“All my characters are me. I’m not a good enough actor to become a character. I hear about actors who become the role and I think ‘I wonder what that feels like.’ Because for me, they’re all me.”
All my characters are me. I’m not a good enough actor to become a character. I hear about actors who become the role and I think ‘I wonder what that feels like’. Because for me, they’re all me. I relate to these characters because aspects of their personality are like me. And I just turn up the parts of myself that are them and turn down the parts that aren’t. - Ryan Gosling

The Ides of March : George Clooney’s and Grant Heslov’s commentary
Clooney: Ryan was gonna do it shirtless. I was like, ‘If you do it shirtless, it’s gonna be a scene about your shirt off.’
Heslov: So you and I did it shirtless instead.
Clooney: I directed it shirtless.
Clooney: And just in my boxers.
