Without a way to legally enforce these guidelines under law, it's a good bet that the drug industry will continue giving short shrift to side effects and safety concerns in its advertising. Congress needs to act to ensure consumers and doctors know about all the potential safety problems with a drug, and not just the pretty picture industry wants to paint.
Well, Adam (Sandler) just wanted me to play myself. He said 'Come on, no one has ever seen that.' So he would actually come on the set and say, 'No, no, no, no ... Come on ... No, no, no, no. Just be yourself.' (I) have a tendency to want to be goofy.
Much of what the industry is proposing is already law, such as producing ads that aren't misleading. What we clearly need is more authority and resources to ensure that all marketing, not just the amount spent on direct-to-consumer advertising, is honest and accurate.
A woman can laugh and cry in three seconds and it's not weird. But if a man does it, it's very disturbing. The way I'd describe it is like this: I have been allowed inside the house of womanhood, but I feel that they wouldn't let me in any of the interesting rooms.
I mean, 'Ocean's Twelve' went there for a week and pissed off everyone. They were shooting in windows and people would call the police, but the police would go, 'Oh, George Clooney, can I have a picture?'
I lost that excitement I had when I first started out. It was all about the need to just get a job, and so I found the joy again when I was writing Deuce Bigelow. I was laughing so hard and along with my writing partner at the time, simply laughing until we cried.
I just think that beautiful people don't have it as hard, you know? They just don't know what rejection's like. That's why super models aren't good actresses, because they don't need anything. If someone is beautiful and she's needy, she's probably had a terrible childhood.
