Quotes

"For me, the attraction to make [Joker] and this character was that we were going to approach it in our own way. So for me, I didn't refer to past interpretations of the character."

"Before I even read the script, [director] Todd Philips came over and talked me through what he wanted out of this character and this movie... and he described the laughter as something that was almost painful. Honestly, I didn't think that I could do it. I would practice alone and then asked Todd to come over to audition my laugh, because I felt like I had to do it on the spot and in front of somebody else. It took me a long time."
