"My first job is to be a really great writer to the actors… So many times you see so much description of what the character is supposed to be feeling and stuff, in screenplays, and it’s just a big mistake. It has to be done through dialogue and what they do. Are they gonna walk across the street? Then that’s a character trait, they’re making that decision. And so the scripts that I write for them are very clean of a lot of flowery explanation and what they’re supposed to be thinking… and I think the actors really appreciate that. It lets them do their job and enables them to just act."

"The Giorgio Armani party is in the store on Rodeo Drive, and I can’t shut off the perverse part of my brain that wonders if I could get away with stuffing a bunch of merchandise in my bag. The look of guilt for even imagining it never leaves my face."
