Personal Quote:

(On working and being with Reese Witherspoon on the film Cruel Intentions (1999)): It was great. I'm the luckiest guy in the world. Not only personally but professionally. She was an asset to the movie and we begged her to do it. She didn't have as colorful a role as Sarah's and mine, but she did an amazing job. Really elevated the piece. See more »
