Personal Quotes (1)

"Steven is my creation, with the help of the script. I used what was in there to my advantage, but I definitely think that I brought something to it. At first we were kind of going Jeff Spicoli (the Sean Penn character in Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982) ), but we didn't want a stoner--more the boy next door. Steven's a little bit off-kilter, yet very witty and very energetic. Actually, scratch witty: He's enthusiastic about what he wants." Interview with Sara Switzer, April 2002.
