Personal Quote:

[on The English Patient (1996)] We went everywhere. We had some hearty handshakes, and they all said, 'We love it, we love it, we love it,' that they wanted to make great movies just like 'The English Patient' that are serious and intelligent, but then they'd look at you and say, 'Could we cast Demi Moore in the role?'
