Personal Quote:

I never talk to actors as a group. Only one at a time. I talk to them about being their characters. Never, ever, about the meaning of the scene. I don't want the actors overladen with research, so they grow stale. See more »

Guest with Johnny Depp of Belgrade Film Festival FEST in 1992. See more »
