Personal Quotes (2)

[on working with Oliver Reed in "Castaway"] Reed is a complex character who doesn't easily give of himself. When you do win his trust, though, he's loyal, protective, and a dear, dear friend. And he possesses an extraordinary sensitivity that manifests itself at the most unlikely moments. In discovering Reed's different aspects, I began to understand him and therefore to like him -- not for what he thinks he is, but for what he really is.
[on working in Hollywood] This whole town's motivated by fear... the fear of failure.
