“The key word for me is ‘inspiration.’ He is a leader by inspiration. He sets an example.

"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.
