Personal Quote:

Said that the box office failure of Stealth (2005) caused him to end up in Hollywood jail for years. He claims that after the success of The Fast and the Furious (2001), whenever he entered a restaurant, he would immediately be invited to join groups of people. After Stealth, people would shun him and pretend they didn't see him, "as if failure is a communicable disease". See more »
