>>753 >>754 I think a bit of both. He is loyal to his projects and does the publicity with apparent enjoyment - which I find commendable as I hate those actors who get sulky, or can't wait to distance themselves from something that's had bad reviews.
I think the screw is loose about this particular project. Going all method, losing all that weight, falling in lurve with his Audrey (!!). I do believe he hoped for an Oscar from day 1 on set and I don't think he has let that go. He must be thinking "But I suffered! I didn't eat and you know how I love cake! I can't sing and I inflicted it on others! I must get an Oscar. Mummy, I want one!"
