Film has to describe and show.
Well, it was the beginning of my film career. It was amazing to me that I got nominated for an Academy Award.
Film is forever.
'Aiyyaa' is a very quirky film.
My favourite film is 'Le Diner de Cons,' a French movie.
Arts and crafts, or getting to be in a play with people, or making a little short film, that's pure sugar, because the stakes are so low.
'SNL' came out in the '70s. It's a different zeitgeist. It's hard to re-create it, just as it would be hard to do a black-and-white noir film now. The culture's different.
I did not grow up a cinefile. No one in my family was in the film business or even anything close to it.
The key is working with great directors. A film is so many different people and all their talents, but particularly the directors, because of the idiosyncrasies of that person.
I left my parents' home when I was 22, I moved to New York with my ex-girlfriend. We did a film together with Raul Julia.
For me, as an actor, the challenge is mostly before the film starts when you have to get into the psychology of the character.
I haven't done an international film for a long time.
