“I think we were just so lucky that we were able to come away with something so memorable,” he said.
“That’s a big deal, especially if you’re on the outside looking in.”
He added: “It’s a lot easier to do a movie with just your eyes closed when you’re the one directing it.
I mean, that was kind of a relief, knowing that it would end up with an Academy Award.
I’m so glad it did.”
Actors are known to make films of their own.
The film’s director, Michael Caine, said the film was an homage to the actor’s late father, who died in a plane crash.
“Michael was an incredible actor and I think his dad was a great actor,” Caine said.
He added that his father, Michael, was also a director of the film.
Caine said his father was an actor who “did an incredible job with his craft.”
“I was very fortunate to work with Michael Cain in that sense,” he added.
“I had a great relationship with him and it was very special.
I know Michael is a very strong-willed guy.
I hope he will continue to do good work.
I just hope he does.”
The Hollywood Reporter reported that the film has been a big hit, with more than 40 million copies of the soundtrack already sold in the United States and more than 1 million copies sold in Canada.
“It was a dream come true to do something like this,” said Caine.
“It was very difficult to do, and I’m very grateful for the incredible support and the wonderful people who have embraced it.
There’s so much that I’m really grateful for.”
