“My leg is pretty much metal – motorcycle accident – but I’ve run 21 marathons on it and it’s never given me any problems.”
“My studio is probably the most important physical possession I have. It’s like Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory, but instead of making chocolate I make movies. I don’t have any Oompaloompas because I don’t like having any other people around.”
“”There’s a manifesto for the studio – everything I need to make for a movie should be at arms reach.”
“I’m not OCD. I’m just doing it right and everyone else is doing it wrong. I’ve always been like that. I have a rule – if you ever get to a girl’s house and her bed isn’t made, get out, just leave, you don’t want to be any part of that.”
“My biggest frustration in life is having my fate out of my control. We can’t go on because of them. Our speed is being dictated by them.”
“The second someone’s being provides a distraction to me or my ability to what I want to do I try to eliminate that. That’s a philosophy that can be applied to any aspect of life. Religion. Politics. I believe in all of that. But don’t impose them on your fellow man.”
