David: When I first started out studying acting I wasn't very well received. I didn't get a lot of positive reinforcement, so I never felt as though I really fit in or had to fit in. Because that need for approval wasn't on my back, I was able to find out what was honest to me in my work. That's the driving force, to find truth in what I'm doing.
David: For me, making The Perfect Son was a transformational experience. It changed my course, what I want to do, the kind of work I want to pursue. I cannot deny how much I enjoyed the process of making that film.
David: If I was lesbian I would love to go out with Jodie Foster.
David: (on the film "The Perfect Son") It was one of the most fulfilling things that I've ever done. And it turned out to be a beautiful film. It was also my favourite kind a story-a story about relationships.
David: I don't like Hollywood and everything that it connotes. Humanity gets compromised in Hollywood for the sake of ambition. It's also too hot and dry.
David: I think loving and respecting your partner and raising a healthy family makes a successful man.
David: (on whether he wants to appear nude in a movie) No, because I wouldn't want to be compared to Ewan McGregor.
