Maybe I have just a younger voice than many other directors.
I allow a lot of room for improvisation and funny stuff. I always feel planned.
It is really cool to have created a movie that has turned out to become the biggest movie of the year.
I go out there to win. People don't care if you die in this business. The only way I get back is with success.
A lot of directors don't want the pressure of a movie the size of Pearl Harbor. But I love it. I thrive on it.
I'm at that point in my life where I definitely want to get married soon. I've got my dogs as surrogates, but I'm ready for kids.
Everybody knows about Pearl Harbor. The thing that really fascinated me is that through this tragedy there was this amazing American heroism.
For me, the great joy is to watch an audience watching what I've made. To hear not a peep from the audience at the right moment, and then to hear the laughs and the cheers.
It's great that I get accused of not being politically correct. People need to take themselves less seriously. This world is so screwed up as it is, we've all got to relax a bit more.
