Personal Quote:

I make as many bad movies as a big studio. But when they make a bad movie they spend forty to sixty million telling everyone about it. When I make a bad one, it gets a round of applause at a film festival. See more »

Trivia:

Has the distinction as a producer for three films, all with gay theme/content, which have received Oscar nominations for Best Picture: Dallas Buyers Club (2013), Milk (2008) and Brokeback Mountain (2005). See more »
