"I’ll never forget [my first awards ceremony]: I walked onto the press line and had a whole bank of photographers shouting, ‘Who are you?’ I didn’t want there to be any pictures of me mouthing my name, so I just stood there. By the time I got to the end, I was like, ‘OK, if I can survive that…’"
Somewhere inside me is a merciful, forgiving person. Somewhere there is a girl who tries to understand what people are going through, who accepts that people do evil things and that desperation leads them to darker places than they ever imagined. I swear she exists, and she hurts for the repentant boy I see in front of me. But if I saw her, I wouldn’t recognize her.
