People can get a bit like, “Oh my God, your life is different than mine.” But no, it’s not. Everyone’s got the same problems. We all get jobs, and we lose them. We have a good time, and we don’t have a good time. It’s changed in that some people have a certain expectation of what they might find when they meet me, which sucks, because I’m not that thing.
The trend for documentaries will never go away, because everybody wants to learn about the world. The world is awful in parts, but there’s always going to be briliant documentaries about it, and there’s always going to be people who want to see them.
I had an assistant for a hot minute, because that was offered to me. And literally, after a day I was like, “I don’t like this. I don’t like someone else making the decisions that I should be making.” I’m very busy, yes, but I’m not so busy that I can’t make my own decisions. I want people to contact me directly about what time I’m being picked up in the morning.
My film knowledge is pretty shocking. I’m trying to correct that.
