Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on J. Edgar (2011)] I try not to consider casting when I'm writing - especially a biopic like this, when I don't have the opportunity to meet the real guy. It's enough work to try and figure out who he was and get a handle on how he might've been, how he might've talked, the things he might have been thinking, his behavior - you know, all that's tough enough.

Trivia:

In December 2013 it was revealed that Black was in a relationship with British diver (and Olympic bronze medalist) Tom Daley, twenty years his junior. See more »
