Did You Know?
They ask if I'm happy and elated by 'Gravity's success. For me, it's like the fox who has been chased by hounds for four and a half years, and then the fox gets away. Is the fox happy? The fox is happy when he's frolicking with another fox, playing with the cubs in the meadow, mating, but when he escapes it's just relief. That's not happiness.
When he accepted the Golden Globe award for Best Director in 2014 for Gravity
(2013), Cuaron apologized for his poor English, especially to his star Sandra Bullock
, for scaring her on location during production when he said what sounded like, " I'm going to give you herpes" when he actually had said, in his thick Spanish accent, "I'm going to give you [an] ear piece.".
When directing, he flashes the title of the movie both at the beginning and at the end of all of his films.
