1. Extra-curricular activities.. "I've been working on a screenplay lately, but I don't want to talk too much about it—I'm a little superstitious. And I'm also doing my own music...I play guitar. I'm into listening to African and Arabic musicians lately, but I can't pronounce any of their names."
2. Patti Smith. "My girlfriend [Jamie] and I went to London to see her perform with Phillip Glass for an Allen Ginsberg tribute. It was really amazing just to hear her talk—her poems are incredible. She had seen Last Days and liked it. I was like, if I hear shit from other people, at least I have that...she's someone who really knows what she's talking about."

3. Director, Michael Haneke. "The biggest reason I did Funny Games was because of Michael Haneke. I've been really lucky to work with some great directors, and Michael is so incredibly intelligent. I really loved this movie he made, Cache."
4. Marlow & Sons, Brooklyn. "I live in Bushwick, and I love this restaurant in Williamsburg called Marlow & Sons. I get the oysters. Anyone I ever bring from Europe...they're happy. And that's usually the test."
