“LA weather is a sham, like most things there.”
“The buildings looked so fake I was amazed to see that the facades had backs to them [. . .] It is a silly city.
“It's so easy to manipulate an audience, but it's nearly always clear that you are being manipulated.”
“You can't get an actor to do something that is beyond his range, so you have to be aware of the range of the actor and, if necessary, alter the part to suit the actor.”
“When actors are being defensive and defending their position, that is when you get less than good acting.”
“I would define a myth as a story that has survived.”
