Quote: “I don’t believe there’s anything in life you can’t go back and fix. The ancient Vedas — the oldest Hindu philosophy — and modern science agree that time is an illusion. If that’s true, there’s no such thing as a past or a future — it’s all one huge now. So what you fix now affects the past and the future.” ||| “The last time I heard real screaming in the theatre was when I went to see a movie I did years ago called ‘Wait Until Dark.’ Now, my mother was the least emotional person on the planet, but when I got killed in the movie, she stood up and screamed, ‘That’s my son!’ At Radio City Music Hall in New York!”
