“A lot of people would say to me, “So Chris, you were bullied in high school and now you’re famous, so you've had a Cinderella story.” And I’d think, “What? Are you kidding?” Fame is not a solution. I’m a Cinderella story because I was in an unfortunate situation, and now I’m in a place where I get to do what I love.”
“I would love to continue in music, with writing… but I am not the kind of person who will hang around if I start to become irrelevant. If that happens, I will bow down gracefully, raise my kids, and have a garden. And I am going to let my hair go gray when I am older. I don’t need to be blonde when I’m 60.
I like to do as little work as possible, definitely. I think it makes it more natural and more real. There are times when I’ve been doing a scene, and we’ve gone for five or six takes, and I’m just dead. I’ve memorized what I’m saying, I’ve memorized what my co-star is saying, and it’s not real anymore.
