Quotes:

Fairy tales don’t feel like fairy tales to the people that live them. Cinderella herself was having a pretty terrible time.

(On regularly working with Ron Howard & Russell Crowe)Ā The more you work with someone, the better you work together. There is nothing more difficult than learning to work with another person. And nothing more gratifying. So why would you want to abandon that?
