“I walked into the room, and there were about 8 people sitting behind desks. I started, and then I forgot my lines. I couldn’t remember. (…). I was sweating, it was a terrible experience, but I really learned a lesson. “

“The ironic thing is that the guy I went out the night before for a drunk was Daniel Craig. So it’s his fault!”
