He shouted his salary to the world and he did this gorgeous cover shoot and photo for The Hollywood Reporter and he deserved every minute of it. I applaud him. When I made a deal with Netflix, I let them interview my salary wrong in the press, and then I did as few interviews as possible and I put my head down and worked. In other words, I hid.”

-I’ve seen both of the movies that Nicole Kidman is getting Oscar buzz for (Boy Erased and Destroyer), but Destroyer is the one that’s stayed with me longest. The way she changes how she moves in the flashbacks with Sebastian Stan versus the present day storyline as a bitter cop is phenomenal.
