When I was younger, people would say, “Brad wouldn’t be Brad, then suddenly 2 weeks later he’d flip back into himself.” When you’re in a movie you’re dealing with a certain set of circumstance and they affect you. If you’re thinking about the death of your mother, or something threatening, or whatever the problem is the character is dealing with, you become clouded with it. Just like in real life. If you’re going through a divorce it will look like it. When I got divorced, I looked like I was getting divorced. Now that I’m older I go in and leave.
