Yeah he was quite a troubled fella
But I felt bad this time around, though I didn't tell him or Emma this when I was in London. My best friend had recently died, and I was in bad shape. Real bad shape. I mean, I almost cut my wrists in my hotel room one night. Seriously. Literally. So, during that shoot... Well, I looked like shit, and I just didn't feel like I gave him much to work with
It's a good interview and he seemed to be a really nice guy from the interview I read.

Well, Chris just trusts you enough to let you come and do your thing, in my opinion. I mean, even though the work I have done for him is minimal, in regards to the size of my roles, and even though I'm sure not some great thespian in any way, shape, or form, he gives actors "Brando respect," if you know what I mean. Whether I or they actually deserve it or not. I mean, he still breaks my balls and teases me a good bit, and I do the exactly the same to him and the gang when I see them all, you still know he really cares, you know he really believes in you, and you also know that if it isn't what he wants, he'll surely let you know. But even then, he just whispers you a few things from time to time, to keep you within the parameters of his vision or whatever, and there you go.
It's hard to explain, really, because it just feels so easy to me on his sets. You show up, he says, "Hey, Golden Holden... you mind not sucking so bad this take?" And I laugh, and say, "Easy, young buck." Then we laugh and hurl a few more jabs at each other, and off we go. But I can't speak for anybody else's experiences with Chris, of course. I've known him six plus years, and... well, thank God I have somebody like him, that's all I can say. I mean, he hires me, and I have a great time. What more can you ask for?
