But I have infinite tenderness for you. I always will. All my life long.

I am very, very sorry for the terrible distress that I have caused you. 

“This is a very strange scene to shoot. On the page it didn’t seem quite as sick as it did when we began shooting. It left us all with a very funny feeling in our stomachs. I think Benedict plays the predator brilliantly. And very against his natural character. He’s a very, very gentlemanly gentleman. Benedict was quite, kind of disturbed by the role he was playing and so we talked a lot about it and Juno was very supportive of him. In a way, it was more difficult for him to play the abuser than for Juno to play the abused. “

“I told James to perform that walk as if he had a bit of a hard on. Sometimes my directions, my notes to the actors are very intellectual and sometimes you just have to come out with a very basic, simple note like, ‘play this scene with a hard on’. “
