Some people use their iPhone to schedule their meetings and stuff. I’m an old-fashioned guy. I only use my Bremax book. With a day planner you never fail because you have to write it down. It’s like paying with cash. You know when you’re paying with cash. If it’s a plastic card, you don’t even think about it.
I like to use a Sharpie to sign my signature, because it’s bigger and thicker so people can see it. Sometimes people come in with a huge beautiful poster and they give me a little pen. The problem with a Sharpie is after 20, 10 signatures, it’s gone.
I need ChapStick every day. Maybe because I drink too much coffee and when you drink coffee it dries your lips. When I’m shooting a movie, I need my ChapStick before each scene. People are holding it in their pockets for me. And I go like this—“ChapStick, please!”—and they come. I like cherry a lot. I like apple. I like juicy fruity. I like natural. I like all of them.
I began wearing sunglasses when I started to own and drive nice cars. I’ve got so many pairs because I lose lots of them. I go from Mikli to Cartier to Ray-Ban (sample shown). I also have glasses lightly tinted pink for inside, so things look like they’re in a movie. Without them, it’s too bright.
I’m always on YouTube looking at lots of subjects so I know what’s going on around the world. Nobody can fool me. Since YouTube started it is, in a sense, my spy. I last learned about the famous TaihuLight supercomputer in China.
Right now I drive a Bentley Azure convertible. It’s fast, but also athletic. And inside, it’s like a living room. When you close the roof it’s completely silent. Believe it or not, my dogs love cars. Imagine on the freeway you see those two dogs sitting in the back. It looks like I’m a driver for dogs.
I need my leather slippers, because lots of hotels have carpet. I prefer to walk on wood or cement floors. But carpet is full of disease. I cannot walk on it. I don’t know why, it’s something strange in my head.
