Personal Quote:

At home, [we play] a lot of Disney stuff -- _Raven [Raven-Symoné], _ High School Musical (2006) (TV)_ soundtrack. My kids love Beyoncé Knowles, but there are a few songs I can't let them listen to -- they're so materialistic! They're all about chinchilla coats and BBS Slims [cell phone]. I'd rather have them listening to a protest song! See more »

Trivia:

During his monologue at the The 77th Annual Academy Awards (2005), he quipped, "If you want Russell Crowe, and all you can get is Colin Farrell, wait!" Coincidentally, Oliver Stone pursued Crowe for the title role of Alexander (2004), yet ended up casting Farrell in the part instead. The film turned out to be one of the most critically panned movies that year. See more »
