I'm potentially worth a lot of money, but I've got to go and make something that's worth a lot of money.
The truth is, I don't have any problem with journalists - I count some of them as friends - also some of my heroes are journalists, I'm a big fan of Robert Fisk - great people or crazy people who are prepared to stand up for what's right.
I just think that the collective experience of going to see a film is something you can't recreate.
I know in my life there's stuff that will come back because I haven't dealt with it, and it's the same with everybody.
I used to think the press was a necessary evil and now I don't think it is. I think it's something you choose.
Now, product placement, whichever way you look at it, whether you like it or you think it's disgusting, or whatever, it's what it is.
When you're making movies you've got to get obsessive.
You've got to live your life, you've got to enjoy it.
I don't care what other people are doing.
I just wanted to play a cowboy for a long time.
Look, I'm in love. I'm very happy.
The days of the misogynistic Bond are sort of over.
The subject matter is very tricky. It's about the Munich massacre and what Mossad did afterwards with the assassination squads. I think it's a turning point in history, especially for the Palestinians.
The idea of regretting not doing this seemed insane to me. Sitting in the corner at a bar at age 60, saying: 'I could've been Bond. Buy me a drink.' That's the saddest place I could be. At least now at 60 I can say: 'I was Bond. Now buy me a drink.'
There's a passion about this because people take it very close to their hearts and they have grown up with James Bond - and so have I. But I was being criticized before I had presented anything, so it was name calling.
