Personal Quote:

I'm a hopeful person; I'm not a cynic. I believe that cynicism is a cancer for an artist. It's a way of insulating yourself from experience. If you're cynical about something, it becomes removed and can't invade you. If you believe that life has to do with an engagement of issues and personalities that make you young and vital, it's hard to be anything but hopeful. See more »

Trivia:

Producer Michael Douglas considered him as director of Starman (1984) but the job went to John Carpenter. See more »
