Yes I try to do everything I can not to fail hideously.
I loved being in Close Encounters, just to watch Steven Spielberg working was exciting.
I was born on Wellington Avenue and my family that remains lives in the Lake Shore Drive area.
God, I'd love to do a big commercial movie that made a lot of money and whose plot was interesting too.
If anyone would have been paying serious attention to my puppet shows, I would have been sent to therapy very young.
I always think that a director who knows about the technical side, but cares about the acting performances and casting as well, is ahead of the game.
I think some of the special effects in Close Encounters hold up better than the new more expensive special effects is because they were better actually.
Oh, I was completely hooked on movies and plays and theater from the time I was a day old - I was very, very early on in love with movies and I loved plays.
I have a 92 year old father whose doing beautifully who lives in Chicago and a sister and a nephew and a niece and I love coming back and try to do so fairly often.
My family was loving... they were very supportive and very affectionate, and basically I could do what I wanted, and basically it wasn't anything dangerous, thank God.
