Trust me: I entertain Joe Six-Pack 30 weekends a year. I don't really think that I'm an elitist.
I had a standup act, and I ended up turning it into something that was really watered down and accessible. Something that went from scary and threatening to something that was almost to the point of being corny.
I'm really not a fan of letting the audience live vicariously through stuff.
Although it sounds very trite, I wish people were nice.
I've always been battling this perception people have of me, this character. It follows me around. 'Bubba the Bear' shows up when I'm checking into a hotel, when I'm on a plane. I can't get upset with people if they're only aware of a small part of my body of work. But inside I do.
My approach to making movies is different than other people, because I just write a lot of screenplays. I'm constantly writing screenplays.
