You learn so much on set; I don't know if you learn as much anywhere else as you do when you're on set, working.
I'm open to working anywhere, but not on anything.
I love working in Texas anywhere.
Once I'm working on something, I don't do anything else. I'm mono-track.
There was definitely a point in my thirties when I thought, 'Oh, wow, I'm not the youngest person on the set anymore.' But I like it. Working with younger artists is totally exciting.
I originated my own cliches, but I'm finding that's not working for me anymore.
The vision that we laid out in 2004 was designed, at best, for a 10-year period. And it was pretty clear that the vision that we laid out in 2004 by the time we arrived in 2010-11 was not working anymore.
It's not about working anymore, its about doing work I can be proud of.
The thing is, I really like working. If I sit around too much, I get really bad anxiety.
Working moms commonly testify that they feel guilty when they are away from their children and guilty when they are not at their jobs. Devoted fathers certainly miss their children deeply, but it does not seem to be with the same gnawing, primal anxiety that often afflicts women.
I tend to write about my anxieties - it's what I'm afraid will happen. And I write a story working it out.
There are endless anxieties in putting a film together, and it's an enormous relief when you know it's working with an audience.
How you are perceived is over a continuum of time. So I just keep on working. I've kind of always seen that as the antidote. Just keep on working.
In the 1930s, unemployed working people could anticipate that their jobs would come back.
Working with Anthony Hopkins every day is a blessing.
It's often discouraging sitting working at home, wondering whether to put the heating on, answering the doorbell to the gas board, feeling it's all utterly pointless.
You know the greatest thing about working on 'Fallon?' I get so many anonymous gifts.
My way of living and working is that I'll do my thing. I went from one thing to another. That annoyed people. They didn't know how to categorize me.
For me, announcing wasn't the ideal working condition.
I didn't make my first solo record until 1981 so I don't have any 60's or 70's recordings but I am working on a large boxed set called DUST to be released next year, the 20th anniversary of my first solo record.
