Personal Quote:

[on Harvey Weinstein's considering excising the profanities from 'The King's Speech'] Harvey is a master of awards. He's a master of marketing. I do not believe this is one of his better ideas. It's not there for shock value or puerile interest. It is purely for therapeutic use. It's based on my own experience as a stutterer.

Trivia:

In 2011 at age of 74, he was the oldest winner of the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for The King's Speech. He held this record for one year, until Woody Allen won for Midnight in Paris at the age of 76 in 2012.
