Less is not more, more is more

Posted by Kashima on August 02, 2004

Thanks for helping me with the word "Pan the Man".
Would someone help me again with the following phrase?
An actor says in an interview,
"This (=doing a voice for a funny and shrewd character in a animation film) is so fun for me, to be able to be larger than life. And in animation less is not more. More is more in animation"
What does "less is not more. More is more"?

I am also not so sure of the meaning of "be larger than life." Does it mean to be more bold and daring, or to overact in perfoming?
