My therapist says I still haven’t got in touch with my anger. Maybe one day I’m going to explode. But I’m still really happy. I know it looks like a strange and painful upbringing - all those experiences led me to the paths that I’m on now.

There’s a tremendous difference between alone and lonely. You could be lonely in a group of people. I like being alone. I like eating by myself. I go home at night and just watch a movie or hang out with my dog. I have to exert myself and really say, oh God, I’ve got to see my friends ’cause I’m too content being by myself.

Sometimes I bust out and do things so permanent. Like tattoos and marriage.

I love romance. I’m a sucker for it. I love it so much. It’s pathetic.

Love is the hardest habit to break, and the most difficult to satisfy.

You can’t live your life blaming your failures on your parents and what they did or didn’t do for you. You’re dealt the cards that you’re dealt. I realised it was a waste of time to be angry at my parents and feel sorry for myself.

I never regret anything. Because every little detail of your life is what made you into who you are in the end.

Life is very interesting... in the end, some of your greatest pains, become your greatest strengths.

I’m just learning who I am and how relationships work and how to make them function. No different from anyone else.

It’s only through listening that you learn, and I never want to stop learning.

If you’re going to go through hell... I suggest you come back learning something.

Producing is so exciting because you can enable things to happen, whether it’s like discovering a filmmaker who you’re taking a chance on, protecting a battle and driving home at the end of the day just going, ’I’m so glad I stayed late at work and fought hard for that. Had my passion. Won that battle.’

Becoming emancipated at 14, my life wasn’t normal. I didn’t have to go to school, so I didn’t. I was rebellious by nature. I spent my 20s focusing on my company, Flower Films, and producing movies. Now that I’m almost 30, I would like to try other things in lie. I’m crazy about photography, and I want to take an art history class.

The stories that I want to tell, especially as a director, don’t necessarily have a perfect ending because, the older you get, the more you appreciate a good day versus a happy ending. You understand that life continues on the next day the reality of things is what happens tomorrow.

The people I grew up around who I really liked were quick on the draw. It always just wowed me. And my mum would make weird funny comments. I can see in myself her self-deprecating, hippie humour. I can’t take myself too seriously.

I love inventive food, but I want the classic dishes to taste like how I remember them. I get a little bummed out when there is too much fancy stuff going on and it doesn’t resemble the original dish at all.

When you’re young, you’re always wondering when you’re actually going to feel like a grownup. And I think you probably fear it, in a sense, too. There’s a danger to feeling like an adult... like this whimsical kid in you is going to die or something. And then all of a sudden, one day you kind of feel like an adult and it’s really nice.

When I did ’E.T.,’ it sort of solidified the only family I know are these film crews. These gypsies. These filmmakers. That was the solidification and the clicking revelations of ’This is what I want to do with my life and this is where I’m going to survive.’
