"The thing that really matters to the older Hollywood establishment is they don't care if you're an ax murderer, if your film is No. 1 at Christmas you're going to get invited to all the parties. You're either on the A-list, the B-list or the C-list. Until I make movies that make $200 million, I'm going to be underneath Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe and some of these other guys. But I'm still on that list. Just down a little bit. Until I jump back up, no one cares." -- John Cusack (Bizarre Los Angeles)
