Some movies get rushed out right after you make them and I'm not always happy with that. Aaron Eck
Actors aren't fighters. They don't know how to throw a punch. So, there's a lot of hitting in the face. I'd much rather fight with a stuntman than another actor. I don't like fighting with other actors because somebody always ends up getting hurt.

I think women can be as cruel as men, and men as tender as women, and vice versa.
I'm sort of fascinated by the whole espionage crime thing.
Yeah, but there's nobody who represents romance to me like Cary Grant. Aaron Eckhar
All these people are so firm on their positions. That's where the humor in the movie comes from, ... It's like the debate team. Nothing is rooted, everything is malleable. As soon as you start to hate what Nick Naylor is saying, then you have a senator saying the same thing. Everybody is complicit;
