Personal Quote:

[on Val Kilmer in Premiere magazine (April 1997)] Val did me two great favors. When I wanted him to be Batman, he said yes. Then he created a situation which allowed me not to have him play Batman again. They were both happy, happy instances, for which I will always be grateful. See more »
