1. I HAVE CONSCIOUSLY NOT TAKEN THE ROLE OF A GANGSTER, WHICH HAS BEEN OFFERED TO ME FAR TOO MANY TIMES.
2. BIG NIGHT AND THE IMPOSTERS ARE BOTH THINGS THAT I WROTE.
3. I’M ACTUALLY ONE WHO WILL ENCOURAGE DIRECTORS TO CUT MY LINES.
4. AND I LOVE DOING MY OWN PROJECTS; THAT’S WHAT I’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO DO.
5. EVEN THE IMPOSTORS, AS SILLY AS IT IS, IS A VERY INTIMATE FILM, IN A WAY.
6. I LIKE TO USE ALL OF MYSELF, AND ACTING WASN’T DOING THAT.
7. I MEAN, SCORSESE’S A GENIUS, AND THAT’S ONE WAY OF SHOOTING.
8. I LIKE TO SEE HOW I CAN DO IT FOR LESS MONEY.
9. I LOVE DIRECTING – IT’S ALWAYS SO INVOLVING, SO CHALLENGING.
10. I WOULD RATHER JUST DO THE THINGS I WANT TO DO.
11. I’D READ UP IN THE OLD HOTEL, AND I WANTED TO DO SOMETHING WITH MITCHELL’S STUFF FOR A LONG TIME.
12. I’M NOT INTERESTED IN WASTING MONEY ON A PROJECT.
13. I WRITE IN THE MORNINGS. DURING MY DOWN TIME.
