"The hardest thing to do as an actor is to act without dialogue, and Sebastian Stan did just an incredible job with this character. He gave him so much life, complexity, and texture without dialogue. You really see his wheels turning in this scene."
"He conveyed incredible menace just through movement for a good sixty minutes in the movie. And that is the hardest job of acting—it’s always very difficult to convey emotion without speaking."

I have a few copies of “Playboy” from the 1970s stashed away somewhere. One of them has a letter where a guy writes in saying, “I met this really gorgeous, sweet woman, and we were planning to get married, but she sat me down yesterday and told me that she had a sex change before she met me. Mr. Hefner, should I marry someone who used to be a man?” and the response was, “So she had a sex change, big whoop. Would you be asking this question if she’d made any other change in her life before she met you? You love the woman she is now, and that’s all that should matter. If you want kids you can adopt or something.”
I feel so conflicted right now
That awkward moment when Hugh Hefner is more trans-positive than most feminists of the same era.
