The One Thing Someone Has Said That Stays With Him to This Day

“My mother said, ‘Keep it simple.’ It took me a long time, wading through a lot of stuff, to realize how much of it you don’t need. I don’t even mean material, professionally, I’ve said this before, Sidney Poitier told me, “if they see you for free all week, they won’t pay to see you on the weekend.” So don’t be everywhere for everybody. This is an age when we think the more you’re seen, the better. In the movie business, that’s not the case. Prime example, when is the last time you’ve seen Daniel Day Lewis? Right? Lincoln. Last movie did 3-400 million. That’s the movie game. You want people to say, ‘where is he?’ Like you just said, ‘When’s Equalizer?’ Those are two good things. Keep it simple.”
