Where are you, Martin? Every actor knows to say great words is a blessing and these are such beautiful words. You're such an actor-friendly director. Thanks for not being a dick," Rockwell said.
Rockwell also thanked his co-star, Frances McDormand, "Frances McDormand. I've said it before, you're a bad ass, you're a force of nature. And it was -- it was really fun to be your sparring partner and thanks for making me a better actor," He added.
