    I'll work with a director if I think I'm going to get into a comfortable situation, and if it's someone I respect and who respects me, even if they're not so well known. Movies are hard to make, and you have to work toward a common ethic and do your best.

    The one thing I always talk about in terms of restaurants is consistency. I think that's what we love about the vodka, is that it's consistent.
