The most honest form of filmmaking is to make a film for yourself.
There's too much down time making movies. That leads to boredom. And that leads to trouble.
Making movies is like herding cats.
I love beautiful black-and-white movies - anything Bette Davis, especially 'Now', 'Voyager', 'Casablanca', 'Mildred Pierce'; anything by Orson Welles, Truffaut, or Godard; and 'Paper Moon' by Peter Bogdanovich.
If I would rescue one of my movies, it would be 'A Little Princess.'
I was in the movies. I danced, I sang, I learned to work in front of a camera. It was like being in a repertory company.
Frankly, 'Bride Wars' got made because movies with women need to be about weddings and love.
People have perhaps gotten to the point where for the most part movies are a just bit of escape.
A good film is when the price of the dinner, the theatre admission and the babysitter were worth it.
Unfortunately, 'chick flick' has become a term to describe most movies that I don't even like. They're these movies that, yes, have women in them but they really don't reflect who women are, and there's something kind of silly or shallow or gossipy about them.
Like most people, I am an enormous fan of movies.
I do want to be in mainstream movies that are going to be seen. I suppose it satisfies the showbiz side of me.
