WH: A while ago I said, “OK, I think I have to work hard for three years [straight] because I took a period of time off.” It might have accompanied the same period of time nobody wanted to give me a job [laughs].
Which is cool if you’ve got your schedule figured out so you’re shooting two months and then taking time off, but I haven’t been doing that.

WH: So I do vaporize, but I still am not smoking because I don’t want to mess with my lungs.
I’m curious: Have you noticed any distinct changes on set since the Time’s Up movement?
WH: One thing I did notice at the Oscars that scared me a little was that there were at least three times when someone came onstage and was about to hug the other person and then stopped themselves and just gave them a pat on the arm or something.
The power of it, you know, it’s like, “Whoa, man!” These are exciting times.
