Good actors can sort of see into people and immediately you have a chemistry with them or not. It's like an affair with no mess.
Death is a billion-dollar business. They can't even pass a law where it takes seven days to get a gun. Why don't you have to go through the same kind of screening you do to get a driver's license? It's totally insane.
Do I listen to pop music because I'm miserable or am I miserable because listen to pop music?
A lot of people are not meant to be together.
I don't want to produce anymore small or independent movies because it's just too hard these days.
I think good actors can sort of see into people and immediately you have a chemistry with them or not. It's like an affair with no mess. You don't actually consummate it, but you get to pretend, imagine what it would be like.
Usually I play people who just keep babbling on and on and on.
