My father is a real idealist, and he's all about learning.

So anything to do with education or learning, my father would spare no expense.

Acting is something I love. It's a great craft that I have a lot of respect for. But I don't think it's any greater challenge than teaching 8 year olds or any other career. In my life, I try not to make it more important than it is and I just hope that rubs off on the people around me.
