Personal Quotes (5)

When I'm writing a script, 98% of the characters are real-life-characters. They're friends, family or business associates, and I don't tell them and they never realize.
The closer you get to the actors personal lives as their friend, the more you trust each other on set. I tell my lead actors all kinds of private stuff, even if they want to hear it or not.
It's weird, but I always picture specific actors as I'm writing a script, and I always end up with having them in the actual movie.
I think the most important thing on a film set is to keep a good energy. Everyone should have a good time and every one in the crew should laugh together and be friends. The second that falls apart, the actors get uncertain and the performance goes to hell.
There are people in the film industry that really pisses me off. I mean, a lot, and I have to fake liking them.
