Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on the toughest aspect of preparing for Inglourious Basterds (2009)] To put aside what I know about the topic. Because it was irrelevant. Growing up in that area, you don't hear much about the French Revolution or the Egyptians or the Seven Year War. You hear about the Nazi era. But it was irrelevant to the part and unnecessary and would have been a bad obstacle. See more »

Trivia:

Lives in London, but his longtime companion, costume designer Judith Holste, and their daughter live in Berlin. See more »
