But they're just sophisticated on many levels, and grown up, and quite profound - and we don't make films like that. See more »

Trivia:

In 2001, appeared in Moulin Rouge! (2001) with Nicole Kidman, Bridget Jones's Diary (2001) with Renée Zellweger and Iris (2001) with Judi Dench. All three of these women were nominated for Best Actress for their roles. See more »
