    Some of the stuff he says, when he's saying it, and I'm watching on TV, I spit my water out, i can't help but laugh. It's humorous.

    I know a lot of people must think that The Lovely Bones (2009) is a pretty dramatic film and it's going to be really deep and dark and everything, but I promise you it's not. It's really humorous and funny and bright and happy. Then this awful thing happens and it kind of makes everyone really sad, obviously, but they have to get on with things. It's like the journey that Susie takes to learn to let go and realize that she can't be with her family anymore, and the same for her family. They have to let go and they know that they can't be with Susie. But it's a really funny, lighthearted thing. There's some really dramatic scenes in it as well, which is great with The Lovely Bones (2009) because you kind of get the best of both worlds. You get to do funny scenes and dramatic scenes. You get to cry, you get to laugh, so it's great .

  5. General Boykin:

    They claimed I was calling for violence against transgenders, obviously it is not true. It was a figure of speech. It was meant to be humorous and it was humorous to the audience.
