I’m interested in the impact my movies have on people and how it affects them, and what they like and what they don’t like – and what they take away from it. What leaves an impression, you know?

On really hot days, I try to motivate friends and family to come into the pool for an aqua jogging session which I teach.

The economic impact of illegal immigration on taxpayers is catastrophic.
When I look in the mirror, I don’t see a person who’s made the kind of impact that Mia Hamm made on the game. She’s still my idol, the greatest player and the greatest teammate. She achieved so much in so many different ways. What she did for women’s soccer can’t be measured.

What drives people to public service is a sense of possibility. If you haven’t sensed that possibility you don’t get started in the same way, you don’t feel you can have an impact.

I can remember when ‘Pulp Fiction’ came out. I was, like, 10 years old. But I remember the impact that it had.
