"This has always been a fantasy of mine to rob a bank but I’m scared of jail so… I rob them in my mind all the time especially when I’m in them. Derek [Cianfrance] gave me the opportunity to do that [in the movie]. That’s pretty scary though because he had this idea that we would just go in and there’d be real people in there and real people that worked at the bank and we’d do it in one take. I drove up to the bank, I thought about it all night, I stepped off and I started yelling and screaming, acting on all of my fantasies, and then I looked and everybody was just smiling at me, really just happy to be in the movie. No one was scared at all!"
