(about Alexandra Kyle, who played the younger version of her in "13 Going on 30") All the producers and everyone thought that she looked so much like me, but I think she`s just so cute. They all asked me, "Did you look just like her when you were that age?" and I was like, "Noooooo!" I looked like a little boy, seriously. I had long arms and braces, and she is just gorgeous. The director kept telling her to do things the way I would do them, but I was like, "No, I need to be watching her," because she was perfect. She hit it right on.
(On Jennifer Garner):
She`s the best. The best. Definitely. I can`t believe she can be that happy at five in the morning.
How I prepare really depends on the character, so it changes. I might go shopping and buy something I think the character might buy, things like that. I usually try to find the character from the outside in.
Well comedy certainly comes easier to me I certainly get a lot of offers, I get more of an opportunity for those. I am interested in playing dramatic roles and I’ve had a lot more life experience now and I feel like I have more to offer for dramatic roles. I don’t think that you can really be dramatic without being a little funny.
I am the pilot killer.
Being a character actor, you do get the goofy roles, but a lot of times they`re really underwritten and you`re expected to breathe life into them.
(On Jennifer Garner): She’s a nut. She’s such a breath of fresh air. I just loved working with her.
(On the 80`s): I was obsessed with Madonna and Duran Duran and John Stamos and Facts of Life and Silver Spoons and Growing Pains.
I think that the older I get, the more life experience I have to bring to roles, which give them more depth and make them more real.
