"In the paintings where it's there—the tenderness—I work for it. I'm not afraid of it. If I could put my bleeding heart in there, I would."
"Having a boy play a girl (and when I say ‘play a girl’ I don’t mean that he is represented as a girl, because he is represented as a young man) is complicated. He knows he’s looking at photographs of a girl and copying those poses. So the audience sees him as a man, but he can only see himself as a woman, because that’s the model he’s looking at. It was a really interesting exchange."
