"I don't want to freak you out, but 'Silence of the Lambs' is my favorite movie. 'When Harry Met Sally' is probably my other favorite movie. I think those two tie.

"I know they're two very different movies, but I always loved Jodie Foster growing up because she had gone to Yale, she was very bright, she spoke French, all of that. Even before I thought I wanted to be an actor. I always had a thing for her. I was so impressed with her.
"And then that movie was the first that ever scared me in the psychological sense. Plus, I was just enchanted by Anthony Hopkins. I don't know, I just always thought that Jodie Foster was something pretty amazing."
