The moment I was introduced to my wife, Emma, at a party I thought, here she is - and 20 minutes later I told her she ought to marry me. She thought I was as mad as a rat. She wouldn't even give me her telephone number - and she wrote in her diary: 'A funny little man asked me to marry him.'
What I dislike about movie culture is that it often presents a parable of our problems - but the issues are all straightforward and the people are either nice or they're not. In real life, everyone falls between those perimeters, but not many American films operate in that grey area.
Sometimes the weekend gets hijacked by work, but as my mother would say, this is the right problem.
I envy people who can think, 'No, I'm not going to work today' when they have a huge pile of deadlines stacking up.
When you are desperate to get someone who isn't all that interested in you, you lay siege as hard as you can.
