Famous quotes:

·      I go into meetings with some film-makers and they literally have nothing to say, they’re almost bored by their own material. I’d rather work with people who are very passionate and very animated about what they want to do. People who just want to tell stories.

·      I look at my contemporaries, and we’re all at different stages and levels, and all choosing different routes, different ways to do things.

·      If you have created an image of yourself at 13 and it is still with you at 17, it needs to be dropped.

·      I had teen angst for a while, but I think every teenager has the angst.
