My dad is Jewish so I was kinda brought up half-Jewish.
(2011) When I lost my mom, my whole life changed. It changed the way I thought about everything, about how I woke up every morning.
(2010) I do credit my mom and my dad that even in my more rebellious years, I didn't cross the line. There was never an E! True Hollywood Story about me, I never got arrested. Yeah, I partied, and went a little crazy with the girls and had my drinking days, but I never got addicted to hard-core drugs, and I really do believe it's because I was lucky enough to have a family that really guarded me in a city like this.
(2010) I pretty much lived movie to movie in my younger years because I loved spending money and I didn't really have a concept of "assets," but as I got a little older, I bought art. I got all these cool pictures - a Warhol painting, a Basquiat drawing, a little Keith Haring - every time I had a little extra money. But for a while there, I was just living movie to movie. "Oh, I need a job? All right, what's out there? Okay, I'll take that one."
(On Public Enemies (2009)) Public Enemies was a six-month shoot. I love Michael (Mann), but I don't know. We shot that movie for a long time, and when you see the movie, there's a lot of parts I like in it, but there are so many characters. I was like, "Where did it all go?" I didn't even know where Johnny's character was, and he was Dillinger. I loved the gun-battle scenes, I loved the look of the film, but I kind of lost my character in there, and I was, "Oh-kay, that was half a year" ... But I love Michael Mann. I was going through a tough time when he offered me that movie. I didn't think I could do the movie because I was losing my mom - she hadn't left me yet, but it was headed that way...
(2008, on Hollywood) I don't know how it works. There's been times when I've wondered, 'Why the fuck am I not getting that movie?' There's so much to this game like who's hot and all that. If you stay true and work with great directors, that's all I can hope for. Right now, I feel the most solid and my work is the best it's ever been. I feel fortunate.
I like to make movies about characters. I like smaller films, that's what I love to do.
I enjoy my lifestyle, living by the beach in Venice. I'm not afraid to admit I enjoy the money.
