"At first, when I was going to play the character, I had a hard time understanding how I was going to play a king. I couldn’t understand. I don’t know what it’s like to be a king. I didn’t grow up in a castle. I was thinking about it pretty technically. Then I just thought, maybe I’ll try to approach it as playing a man who was trying to connect, but wasn’t doing a great job of it. [A man who] desperately wanted to relate to people and actually did have a lot to say, but wasn’t saying it." — Jason Schwartzman on his role as Louis XVI in Marie Antoinette (2006).
