    • Mark Ruffalo: I don't like this idea of Method. I come from that school, but what I was taught was that it's your imagination. You do your homework, and you use your imagination. People use the Method as a shield; it shields them from being vulnerable. I hear all these young actors who are like, 'I'm Method, I'm gonna go live in the house, you know, I totally get it, I've done it, I've been there', but one thing I know is it kills spontaneity. They'll still give great performances, but they're not playing with the other actors - it's all about them. And spontaneity and vulnerability are gold on screen and on stage - they are the f*cking magic. When Brando reaches down and picks up that glove and puts it on his hand, that is magic. You can't plan that.(He is referring to a scene in On The Waterfront: Eva Saint Marie accidentally dropped a glove on set and, rather than wait for another take, Brando picked it up and put it on, without missing a line.)
