Quotes

#Quote
1You can have a great character in a really bad script, and the film will never be seen. It's just too much work to commit to a film and not have it released.
2Going to film school taught me how much I already knew, and that the best way to learn about film is being on the set with professionals.
3I took myself out of the business to study film at NYU and the School of Visual Arts. I grew up on movie sets and was fascinated with the camera and behind-the-scenes work. I felt it would help my career as an actor if I knew all aspects of film.
4'Home Alone' had become the absolute biggest film I had ever done, and it became the third-highest grossing film of all time. So clearly it had an effect on me that is unparalleled to any other film experience in my childhood.
5After film school, I embarked on trying to promote independent films. But after a while, I realized I was breaking my back doing six-day-a-week shoots, 14-hour days, and no guarantee of distribution.
