The Art of Discovery
Okay, but Clint lying like this on Phil’s couch and Phil being all FUCK MY LIFE

"I was studying computer languages — Pascal, BASIC, and DOS were the popular ones at that time. But I realized my personality didn’t fit behind a computer. I took an elective, and it kind of really changed my life. The Wizard of Oz was my first play, and playing the Scarecrow to all these kids was such an invigorating exchange of emotions. I thought, Wow, this is addicting. This is beautiful. Then I started doing really heavy parts after that, like Conrad Jarrett in Ordinary People, Philip in Orphans … and from there I started digging into psychology and human behavior, and that became really important, personally, as how I sort of viewed my place in the planet. Acting was a beautiful outlet.”
"I’ve been around the business for a long time, seen all the pitfalls, things to do and not to do. It kinda felt like I was more ready for this to come my way. Hollywood, with all it has to offer, can be pretty enticing and alluring. If you don’t have your feet on the ground, you can go down a bad road. So now, being older, I can really enjoy the entire process of being recognized and getting accolades. I take it all in stride with humility and am very grateful for what I have."
Q: You just wrapped a film after working on it for a long time- what’s the first thing you want to do with your free time?
