- “For me, personally, I was really upset that the script leaked... cause I like to keep it, I like to keep things under wraps, I like to keep things more private. But Quentin was like: "Great"... you know... "Honestly, everyone's gonna read it, people will read it", you know... he didn't care, he was kind of happy, you know, he was "What you're worried about? People gonna read the script. People gonna see the movie" and uh... so it's funny, he has very different attitudes and things... while I was upset, he was like "What's the problem? Let's go make the movie."”
