In Australia, even the darkest subject matter has a little pinch of humor. A little sweet to make the sour go down.
Ben Mendelsohn
I don't have memorabilia but try to take a bit of wardrobe, usually because they dress me better than I dress myself.
Ben Mendelsohn
I had a pretty good career at home. What keeps you going is not having a plan B. It's a very good thing. I think if I had a viable plan B, I might not have kept going.
