More Quotes from George:

"I don't like to share my personal life... it wouldn't be personal if I shared it."

"Ninety percent of films are pretty mediocre, but they have a built-in audience and open on 3,000 screens."

"Directing is really exciting. In the end, it's more fun to be the painter than the paint."

"I'm a hybrid. I succeed in both worlds. I hope that selling out on 'Ocean's Eleven' is not such a bad deal. The trade-off is, I get to go make something uncommercial that will probably lose money."

"An acting career usually has about a shelf life of ten years before people get sick of seeing you. It's a good thing to have a job to fall back on and I really do enjoy directing."
