You know when you see the preachers down South? & they grab a believer and they go, “ I touch you with the hand of God!” & they believe so strongly, they’re on the ground shaking & spitting. & fuck’s sake, that’s the power of belief. Now, I don’t believe in Jesus, but I believe in my performance. & if you can understand that the power of belief is one of the great tools of our time & that a lot of acting comes from it, you can do anything.
