A. R. Rahman

If being a werewolf is really a curse, you've got to treat it honorably. If werewolves are going to carry on, there has to be an incredibly powerful force. There is the business of the craving, the hunger for the kill. It has to be deeply pleasurable and more than an appetite for meat. There has to be a sensual dimension to it.
In Hollywood there's a great openness, almost a voracious appetite for new people. In England there's a great suspicion of the new. In cultural terms, that can be a good thing, but when you're trying to break into the film industry, it's definitely a bad thing.
Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.

Every day, I wake up and I say, 'Why... how... did I end up with 1.7 million Twitter followers?'
