Quotes from the news wire:
We've always placed great importance on the mistake, but the next move, what you do after the mistake, is what really defines a person. We're all going to make mistakes. But what is that next step ? We don't, as a culture, seem to stick around to see what that person's next step is. And that's the part I find so much more invigorating and interesting.
I am quite famously a not-crier. Is that a term ? i hadn't cried in, like, 20 years, and now I find Brad Pitt, at this latter stage, much more moved -- moved by my kids, moved by friends, moved by the news. Just moved. I think it's a good sign. I don't know where it's going, but I think it's a good sign.
Most of our films, which I feel is a mistake, get defined by the opening weekend. They'll say it's a hit or it's a miss. But all of my favorite films, I found them well after the fact, history is rife with films that we love today that were abysmal' bombs' on their opening weekend. And we find them later, or we catch up with them.
…I can't remember a day since I got out of college when I wasn't boozing or had a spliff, or something. Something. And you realize that a lot of it is, um—cigarettes, you know, pacifiers. And I'm running from feelings. I'm really, really happy to be done with all of that. I mean I stopped everything except boozing when I started my family. But even this last year, you know—things I wasn't dealing with. I was boozing too much. It's just become a problem. And I'm really happy it's been half a year now, which is bittersweet, but I've got my feelings in my fingertips again.
And you know, after that, we've been able to work together to sort this out. We're both doing our best. I heard one lawyer say, ‘No one wins in court—it's just a matter of who gets hurt worse.’ And it seems to be true, you spend a year just focused on building a case to prove your point and why you're right and why they're wrong, and it's just an investment in vitriolic hatred. I just refuse. And fortunately my partner in this agrees. It's just very, very jarring for the kids, to suddenly have their family ripped apart.
I think he’s smarter than I am. He’s not going to step in the same potholes, the industry has changed. It’s like the kind of film has changed. If you want to make substantial stories and things that are profound and mean something you kind of have to delve into the independent realm... He called Hacksaw Ridge a big independent film, noting that the film is not even that huge a budget or anything. Andrew Garfield plays Desmond T. Doss, a United States Army corporal and combat medic during WWII who won a Congressional Medal of Honor despite refusing to bear arms. Mel Gibson said bold men like Doss exist in the world today.
