You don’t turn it off. It doesn’t matter if your partner’s in the cockpit with you. It just is a statement of being.

It was cool because it was a little insight into my character, but they cut it.”

Maybe another brand-new director could bring more queer representative to the franchises we like? Who understands at this moment.

“People were just conditioned to believe that nothing ever ends anymore. What I get excited about is knowing what some young filmmaker envisions, like what new ideas. I, at one point, had a very clear vision for where we could take this and what this could be. And I laid that out to Steven Spielberg and he gave me this opportunity and I would love to be able to give that opportunity to some little kid who’s playing with dinosaur toys in a sandbox right now. And he or she has a vision and I want to hear it.”
