Question – It’s been 30 years since “Jaws.” You’ve achieved every measure of success. What keeps driving you to make movies?
Spielberg – I’ve often asked myself that question, and my answer comes back the same way every time: I love it. Being a moviemaker means you get to live many, many lifetimes. It’s the same reason audiences go to movies, I think. When my daughter Sasha was 5 years old, we would be watching something on TV and she’d point to a character on screen and say, “Daddy, that’s me.” Ten minutes later a new character would come on screen and she’d say, “No, Daddy. That’s me.” Throughout the movie she would pick different people to become. I think that’s what we all do. We just don’t say it as sweetly.
This is Steven Spielberg‘s honeymoon with the media. Just when his movie’s post-production is all done and he is waiting for the verdict, he loves to talk to the media. A little hype, for his latest film, may be behind these interviews but what comes out are some amazing quotable quotes.
