I'm an optimist; I always hope that each new script is going to be a great story.
I try to research or make up for myself what happened in any character's life. From when he was born until the first page of the script. I fill in the blanks.
It's hard not to get depressed when you pay attention to the world and how strangely and corrupt the people in it sometimes behave.
Walking down the street in any town or city in the world and having people look at you and start talking to you, convinced that they know you as well or better than they do members of their own family, that's just an odd phenomenon. But I mean, I wouldn't say it was a bad thing. It's an interesting thing.
