I'm not afraid of dying . . . I just don't want to be there when it happens.
Basically I am a low-culture person. I prefer watching baseball with a beer and some meatballs.
I do the movies just for myself like an institutionalized person who basket-weaves. Busy fingers are happy fingers. I don't care about the films. I don't care if they're flushed down the toilet after I die.
If my film makes one more person miserable, I'll feel I've done my job.
Eighty percent of success is showing up.
I think being funny is not anyone's first choice.
Man consists of two parts, his mind and his body, only the body has more fun.
Life doesn't imitate art, it imitates bad television.
Most of the time I don't have much fun. The rest of the time I don't have any fun at all.
