Personal Quote:

[on the characters in The Rules of Attraction (2002) and them as people] Bret Easton Ellis is a social satirist; I consider myself aligned with how he does things. Bret doesn't write about that which he loves about the world, he writes about what disgusts him. You'd be a disturbed individual if you came out and said, "I love these characters". See more »

Trivia:

Though Quentin Tarantino received credit, it was actually Avary who conceived the Top Gun (1986) gay reference speech that Tarantino used in Sleep with Me (1994). See more »
