Talking about his work as an actor, the ‘Her’ star said, “I’ve always had a hard time. And, I think only recently, as you get older or whatever, you’re okay. Maybe it is going to be a bad experience’ or ‘Maybe I’m not going to enjoy it. And maybe I won’t have any of those connections, maybe I’ll feel just hollow afterwards.’ That’s okay. Because I know that I have meaning in other parts of my life. And that’s really what sustains me. I enjoy it. I love my life. I f**king love my life”, he concluded.
