Who gets paid more actors or directors?

It matters because, when you make movies that people want to see, you spend a lot of money.

Is it more rewarding to work as a writer or actor? I think writing is generally more fulfilling in some of my films. In certain cases, though, I would love to get money while making the movie (and vice versa). Sometimes they are interchangeable since one of them can make more work while the other gets more money. I never get paid just for writing. They’re all paid.

You have to choose who you want to be, and I think you can tell them apart from other people. Other people try to be both and fail. I just go for what I want to do.

Would you do a movie where a guy is a slave, but then he has to be bought by whomever? You can get some of the most memorable characters if you do that. It’d also help my career by proving I have a real acting gift. If you can do that, maybe it’s time for a change of scenery.

How much did you get paid for every scene with Jennifer Aniston? Jennifer is really great and I love getting work with her. Maybe I should go to the gym to get some muscles.

When you’re not writing, do you read other people’s scripts? I’ve worked with a lot of actors, directors, writers, and producers. I like people who talk about the writing process.

Do you have a preferred style for a script? I try to stay pretty true to whatever I think it must need. It also helps that the whole movie is based on a certain plot I’ve thought up. I can go down all the way down to the character’s backstory, because I know it all intimately. The more I know the story, the more comfortable people can act.

What made you start writing movies? Maybe it was a way to entertain my kids. I was never good at drawing. That’s all my kids knew.

Did writing lead you to get more comfortable being an actor? You can get comfortable with almost anything. You should always have a goal. It may not look like a goal to everyone around you, but there it is.

The US Department of Justice just announced four new anti-drug prosecutions, and the first of them happened on July 29, when a federal judge sentenced a 25-year-old named Marissa Alexander to five years in prison for allegedly selling $500 worth of heroin to a confidential informant.
