Christopher Meloni (on being asked the same questions repetitedly)
[The most annoying questions are] probably the ones about the whole acting process. 'How are you able to do...such-and-such?' You study something for so long and then try to talk about it. It's not explainable. It's like history to a historian, someone who makes history their life. It's a bigger, grander thing and explaining it doesn't work. The acting thing is difficult, fucking difficult to explain. Like: explain being a surgeon. I'm a surgeon of emotions. I'll kill you if you quote me on that.
