Taken from an interview with producer Jerry Weintraub (Ocean trilogy) about a documentary about the producer, apparently also featuring Brad.
The documentary, “His Way,” which debuts on cable channel HBO on Monday, includes amusing tales from Weintraub about working with Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra and John Denver, as well as interviews with George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts and former President George H.W. Bush.
You have to take the time and care to cultivate, make it big, make it an event? I make an event out of everything I do. But it doesn’t just happen. It’s not a thing that happens in an instant and you just walk away. There’s not an event or anything I’ve done in my career—the shows I did, the movies I did, the shows I produced on Broadway—that I don’t have my handprints all over and take full responsibility for. As Brad [Pitt] said, he does a really big show, he can’t help himself.
