Personal Quotes (1)

[re Rush (2013)] I remember the terrible looks I used to get when I said I was working on a script about Tony Blair and the queen after the death of [Princess] Diana, or about Richard Nixon and David Frost. People would question my sanity. At least this one has cars, sex and death. To me it felt like Iron Man (2008).
