Personal Quote:

You're in a movie because you're appealing and because you represent the aspiration, the fantasy, the ideal. I resisted that but, when you're in the business, when you're making a film, one doesn't have to take it all too seriously. We're not curing cancer . . . it's entertainment. We want to get people into theatres. See more »
