I want to avoid becoming too styled, too ‘done’ and too generic. You see people as they go through their career, and they just become more and more like everyone else. They start out with something individual about them, but it gets lost.
One of the first things they ask you in the ER is to rate your pain on a scale from 1 to 10. I’ve been asked this question hundreds of times and I remember once, when I couldn’t catch my breath and I felt like my chest was on fire, the nurse asked me to rate the pain. Though I couldn’t speak, I held up 9 fingers. Later, when I started feeling better, the nurse came in and she called me a fighter. “You know how I know?” she said, “You called a 10 a 9.” But that wasn’t the truth.
I didn’t call it a 9 because I was brave. The reason I called it a 9 was because I was saving my 10…and this was it.
Helena and I have rules about working together. I give her her space and she gives me my space; otherwise we’d kill each other. I don’t know how two actors could ever be together. At least as an actor and a director we have different jobs. Also, we both had careers long before we met. She’s seen it all before and there’s an understanding. We’ve learnt how to give each other boundaries and still keep a sense of humour. - Tim Burton
