Normally in dangerous situations I have a getaway car.
For a number of years in England nobody had any idea what I looked like.
Dictators are ludicrous characters, and, you know, in my career and in my life, I've always enjoyed sort of inhabiting these ludicrous, larger-than- life characters that somehow exist in the real world.
Borat is based actually on a guy I met in southern Russia. I can't remember his name. He was a doctor. The moment I met him I was totally crying. He was a hysterically funny guy, albeit totally unintentionally.
It seems to me that Martin Scorsese makes films for himself. He is an artist. And he's one of the last remaining artists out there, and I think we should respect that.
