You are absolutely free to describe me as a turtle or something.
Am I really cool? You're telling me I'm cool? Well, that's good to hear.
This whole business feels kind of intense, like a bad fit. Round peg, square hole. But whatever, I'll take it.
Well, you know, when people say stuff about you, it's always really flattering. But does it mean anything to me? It's not really real to me; there's no reality to it.
It'd be disingenuous to say I don't like attention - I'm an actor for God's sake - and it's flattering and all, but attention was never my big goal. I just like to work and have a good time.
