I don’t have anything against people who bare their soul to the media. I just know I can’t do it. I want to share things that seem practical to me. It’s the same if I go to a dinner party with guests I don’t know; I’m not going to share my life story with them. It’s exactly the same with the press — you’re not going to hear my life story either, because we’ve just met. That’s how it works. We talk, and I tell you about the movie. Getting into private matters is actually very intense. And, well, I don’t know how to do that.
