The Edward Scissorhands star also revealed that he was ‘absolutely horrible at auditioning’ during his younger years. “I was a young idiot. I recognised that this (auditioning) process really had far less to do with performance. So, in my mind I always thought, to put it in a very nice way. It’s an uncomfortable place to be where you feel you must be ‘on’,” he said.

He also said that he only pays attention to the dialogue in a film script and consciously ignores all other directions. “I black out all screen direction. Why should I know what’s supposed to happen? I think it should be much more organic,” he said.
