Personal Quotes (2)

I read somewhere that I was the youngest production president, at 27, along with (Scott Rudin), Irving Thalberg and Don Simpson. I feel lucky I survived it all. Back when I was single in my 20s and 30s, to have that affection and love for what you do, throw in a little success, and the cliché of the nerd back in Brooklyn blossoms into blooming butterfly in Hollywood, and that is a toxic combination. Why wouldn't I have a good time? If you can live long enough to retain the wisdom, then all you can do is look back, laugh and go, there were hairy moments, but it was a great time. I got really lucky to be put in charge of something that worked out so well, at such a young age. You never knew what was going to happen, week to week.
[on why star Charlie Hunnam pulled out of his movie 50 Shades of Grey] In the case of Fifty Shades, it really went down to the wire. Everyone wanted it to work out, including Charlie. In terms of schedule, to be free from Sons of Anarchy in time to show up on the set of our movie, the physical transformation from Jax to Christian Grey was more than he could accomplish in the time that we had. To his credit, he came to us and said, 'I don't think I'm going to be able to get there in the time we have, and I don't want to do a bad job. I'm not going to be able to turn into this guy.'
