I aspire to be a director...I think it stems from wanting to be a conductor, another desire of mine from my childhood, though I was not interested in music, not at all. I just wanted to control that orchestra.
I blame Ridley Scott really, because he was the person who went I love Star Trek and I`d love it if you were in my movie" and people like Oliver Stone went "I hated Star Trek and I don`t want you in Alexander (2004)!" I was really lucky there".
There was a point where I was just going to call myself `uh` because people would walk up to me in the street and say `hey you`re, uh....` That would just make it a lot easier for them. And I could just say `yes, I am!`
