It's no secret that my family was very, very poor, and I don't want that for my life or my children's life certainly. But some might say I could relax a bit more and know that that's not going to happen to me. I'm not going to end up in a car.
I don't belong to the straights now - they didn't get me back.
It's always a challenge to make an independent film.
It's always a challenge to make a low budget film.
