"It’s something Paul and I have always done together, we’ve known each other a long time. One time in our 20s we almost got kicked out of a bar because of it, but we did it out of excitement, out of comradery, out of friendship. We had talked about it but Joaquin didn’t know what was going to happen and I knew him well enough at that point that I knew he would react, that it would turn into something and it did. He doesn’t just go with it, he struggles. You do see physically what this movie is in that moment very well."- Philip Seymour Hoffman on the hug scene.

"I was a couple of films in before I realized, ‘Oh gosh, this must be who I am. I guess I’ll never be that other thing.’ It’s kind of a sad day. Before you’ve done anything, the world is completely open, just like any actor starting out saying, ‘Oh, I want to be Meryl Streep or Robert De Niro.’ At some point you look in the mirror and go, ‘Shit, okay, here’s who I am. I’m not that, but I am this.’ You sense your limitations and learn to live with it."
