On taking the role in "Dallas Buyers Club":
"I got the script for 'Dallas Buyers Club" sent to me three times, and i just ignored it. I hadn't read a script years. I had no plans to ever make a film again. But I fell in love."
On becoming popular in Hollywood:
"I never thought in a million years I would be mentioned with either 'buzz' or 'Oscar.' It's completely mind-blowing. You don't do it for that, but buzz is an indication that something worked. Like, maybe this one won't be a heartbreak."
On living a life of normalcy:
"I'm actually a very private person. If you read between the lines, you're only going to find more lines. I'm not a reality star. I went to art school. I thought I would be an artist. That's all I really wanted to share with people. I still feel the same way."
