More From Alexander Payne
- "You just never know when you’re living in a golden age."
- "The novel succeeds on terms exclusive to literature. A good film succeeds on terms exclusive to the cinema. That’s why so many bad novels can become good movies, like ‘Jaws’ or ‘The Godfather.’"
- "I don’t feel despair because I am able to make the films I want to make, and that gives me hope."
More In Famous

- "They were all famous and fantastic fellows."― Peter Scott
- "A famous person to themselves, they don’t get up in the morning and think, I’m famous. I’m not famous to me. Famous is a perception."― Van Morrison
