Personal Quotes (4)

When I first met my girlfriend, Mercy Malick, she asked me if there was anything I should tell her that could put her off me if she found out later. So I told her that I was a total 'Star Wars' geek and had boxes of 'Star Wars' toys in storage.
I wish that every director was as interested in doing as much in camera and with physical objects as much as possible as J.J. Abrams is.
I love to listen to lots of different genres of music, but mostly movie soundtracks and music theater.
Yep, I'm a geek. Ever since I got the Millennium Falcon for Christmas in 1978. And I still have it, in perfect condition, just without the box... but I still play with it!
