Personal Quotes (5)

You have to keep hobbies in L.A. Otherwise, it's sad.
My dad's a Jew and my mom's a WASP, so that should pretty much say it all. It was a comically dysfunctional family.

I had no other choice than to make it the way I made it. And I felt very supported in that. When you write and direct your own film you basically know exactly what you want. Or you hope to.
