ON KEEPING PARNASSUS GOING: I nearly gave up. For the first week, yeah. Because I didn’t even want to finish it.

ON CHANGES TO PARNASSUS: This was the film that Heath and I set out to make. It’s basically as written.
Some scenes we couldn’t do because Heath wasn’t there. And I was like, “The bastard’s directing this film! He’s telling me what I can and can’t do!”
