“ I balance, I paint, I dodge, I frolic. On weekends, to let off steam I play tennis or go riding bikes, I have made an extraordinary four-course meal at 2300hrs on a Tuesday. A bar stool philosopher, I have also won fights with my dog, I cliff dived into the ice-cold Ganges river flowing from the great Himalayas, went on solo trips in the desert and forts of Rajasthan, learning to speak fluent Español. Oprah Winfrey is my best friend. Strangers think I have a great smile, and through making movies, I live a dream “
