That's how I became a writer. But when you have kids, suddenly you have to be part of things. It leads almost to a breakdown because your whole defense mechanism is now really destructive. Hide

She beats up on me about making sure they have the proper amount of depth and not just be there to serve the men. Obviously my wife makes me laugh a lot but she doesn't see herself as a funny person.

I really have no interest in directing anything I haven't written, but if Ricky Gervais called tomorrow, well, I could be seduced. I always watch that show and think it's not going to get me. And then I find myself laughing hard out loud. I'm a burnt-out bitter comic. I don't laugh out loud. I don't make noise. I don't know how he does it but Extras gets me every time. - on the only other comedy creation that makes him laugh every time Hide

And I like it best when the movies do well and the reviewers like them. I love magazines and film critics, so I eat it up. I'm not one of those people who says "I never read anything". I generally read all of it. Hide
