The deepest change begins with men raising children as much as women do and women being equal actors in the world outside the home.

When I really love someone, I can only show it by making aggressive and bad-taste remarks.
The best thing is to always keep honest people around, because when you have a bunch of yes men around that know that you're making a mistake but let you go on with it, that's when it ruins your mind state as an artist.

And at the end of the day, this is entertainment and this stuff is very entertaining. Is a lot of it ridiculous? Of course it is. But that's what makes it interesting.
If only God would give me some clear sign! Like making a large deposit in my name at a Swiss bank.
