One of the great joys of my job is that you spend a huge amount of time investigating different areas of literature.
When I got married, my mother was very surprised. She said: 'What on earth is going on? I thought you were gay?'
If I wanted to work financially, I would have made a series of different choices. I do get offered lots of movies which you could make a lot of money out of. And I always say, 'Why would I do that, when someone else could do it much better than me? Why would I want to do an action picture? Why?'
I always say, 'I really need to take a break.' It's three days in and I'm getting pretty bored.
