Steven Allan Spielberg (born December 18, 1946) is an American film director, producer, and screenwriter. He is considered one of the founding pioneers of the New Hollywood era and one of the most popular directors and producers in film history.
He’s one of the most ambitious and accomplished directors of our time, but getting dressed every day is no easy task for Steven Spielberg.
“I have all the movies I made in my head, but I can’t find my socks in the morning,” he told us at the premiere of the HBO documentary “Spielberg” at Lincoln Center. “Something has to give and that’s usually the stuff that falls out of the memory.”
According to the 70-year-old filmmaker, whose credits include “Jaws,” “E.T.,” and “Saving Private Ryan,” seeing director Susan Lacy’s movie about him was an enlightening experience.
“I found out how much I truly love my sisters, Nancy and Ann and what my mom and dad did for all of us and how my dad continues to give in his life at 100 and-a-half-and my mom, who I lost this year, continues to be with me,” he said. “I realized, like George Bailey at the end of ‘It’s a Wonderful Life,’ at the end of watching Susan’s documentary, I realized how many friends I truly have in this world.”
