I really don't believe in all of these Freudian things because they are not always penis I mean real.

Last year I loved Sharknado and I can't wait for the sequel.

Be careful dude, the studio is taking you seriously.

We had an alternative ending in which after landing on Earth, Ryan will get back on her feet and as she's walking away Matt Kovalski falls from the sky and crashes her to death. And then cut to black. Create scroll in silence.

We met because we used to have competitive mariachi bands. Now, we constantly mess with each other's work.

I would be an assistant to George Clooney, the cobbler.

I would only do the right foot as Daniel Day-Lewis does the other.

Both smell fantastic. Clive smells like Cinnamon with hints of clove and citrus. George smells like red woods with vanilla and a hint of tequila.

He would keep the nipples and go full Brazillian.

My favorite scene to shoot the ambush in the car and the final battle scene. But the biggest challenge of doing that film was to convey to the world the thematics that are shaping the first part of the 21st century. We never intended for it to be a science fiction film, but a look into those themes.

Once I finish a film I don't ever see it again. As I have said many times before, as opposed to some of my friends that consider their films like their babies, for me my films are like ex-wives. I loved them so much, they loved me so much, I gave them so much, they gave me so much- but now we have parted ways. But I do have a very fond memory of A Little Princess. In terms of favorite films and directors, I am unable to do lists. When I do a supermarket list, I end up getting everything except what I need.
