Personal Quote:

I've had more success than anybody should be allowed to have. I mean, everything I've ever written has been offered to be made into a movie, and my nine films that are original ideas have averaged $270 million each. I just think I can't complain about anything. But I get tired. [On the negative criticism of his films] See more »
