Personal Quote:

Unconsciously, it may have been a prophylactic against having to use stars. It was a way to avoid waiting four to five months for them to read or not read the script. Their agents are not saying 'Read it.' I didn't have to run through the street finding the star. ... To me it's not worth it. I'd rather not do the movie. [on using stars in his movies] See more »
