Personal Quote:

[on Begin Again (2013) and its director, John Carney] It was a very difficult shoot. We didn't get on. It's just a thing that happens sometimes and I say that with no blame. It takes two to tango. I think we can both be very proud of ourselves for the film that we made, because it's difficult when a lead actor and director don't get on. And I don't think you could tell that from watching the film. See more »
