"Well, getting behind the camera is something I've always wanted to get involved with. Ever since I was doing movies like 'Zathura' I was very interested in all the different jobs on set and kind of soaking all the information up like a sponge."
"My mom took me to see Carnal Knowledge and The Wild Bunch and all these kind of movies when I was a kid."
"I like being in movies that have a great story. I'm not so interested in being a Hollywood star. It's a job, you know. When you wake up at six in the morning every day for a week, it feels like hard work."
"I do believe that movies are subject to a million interpretations."
"My movies just kind of sneak up on you. I don't have to worry too much about what everybody is going to say. Anyway, I really don't pay attention to what the world says about my movies. I just care about what my buddies think."
"John Barry was my hero when I was about 13. His scores to the James Bond movies were the scores of my life back then."
"I have learned the art of filling in your lines with your visuals and your movies and your imagination."
"There's this index that tallies up how much your movies have made, and if they haven't grossed a certain amount, then you're not bankable. I know I'm not Will Smith but, you know, my ranking's pretty low. The only studio picture I've done is 'Zodiac,' and that didn't perform that well."
"Cinema is entertainment, and people go to the movies because they want to feel good and forget about everything."
"It is odd there are many movies with many men. But generally movies have one woman, or maybe the older woman and the younger girl."
