I feel pretty lucky. Those guys, they know my name. They know who I am. Not bad for a little Indian boy. Not bad. - on working with famous movies stars.
It's no mean calling to bring fun into the afternoons of large numbers of people. That too is part of my job, and I'm happy to serve when called on.
If military movies were automatically successful we'd make nothing but military movies. But seriously, patriotism is one thing that all Americans have in common.
I don't fight anybody anytime or anywhere.
I think that no matter how much you don't like yourself or the drama of your life you can still find some comedy in it.
As a child of West Texas, I identify with Hispanic culture every bit as much as I do North American culture.
I'm a hedonist.
I don't direct movies for a living.
All my life I've had the privilege to make my living with my imagination, and the most important thing has been to see my creative life grow. I was educated to do that and have lived accordingly.
