(1998 quote on his career) With four children I have to maximize the work I do now financially. It`s like I have to do one film for financial reasons, as opposed to when I was single, or before we had all of these children. I find that I`m not as good at not working as I thought I would be.

I say luck is when an opportunity comes along, and you`re prepared for it.
