We come from a tough, working class background, so we're very tight.
Ridley and I talk every day. Our family is very close because we're from North England.
I think we're lucky because there are very few people in life who get to do what we're doing.
There's one great script that hit my desk that I didn't change at all, and that was True Romance.
I make a movie because it's something that inspires me.
I have a short attention span.
A lot of actors talk about doing their homework, but very few of them do it.
I thought that subtitles are boring because they're there generally to serve us with information to make you understand what people are saying in a different language.
Out of the total of 11 movies, I got slammed.
GM is a highly collaborative organization; we rely on a whole tier of suppliers for everything that we do.
The world is sick of big IT things that don't work.
We don't ever want IT to be the thing that holds GM back.
We think of enterprise architecture as the process we use for fully describing and mapping business functionality and business requirements and relating them to information systems requirements.
All my movies, like Revenge, are under two hours.
