point. i know there were people in the project that were nervous. they urged you to shoot an alternate version of the screen. you stood your ground. >> there was talk about it. i funded it. there was no way, there is no point in dancing around this subject and the success of the movie is that the words do get said and in a normal break down of an argument you can walk away. people watch a two-hour movie they see this word if they hang another five minutes, something else happens, this movie really ends up being about a lot of things that people i think wish they'd be able to say. >> in the process of being able to go out and promoting this movie, you do a lot of interviews in the last week or so you have been asked about certain subjects and you made your comments about "american sniper" and michael moore. you weighed in on deflate-get a, without going into specific comments people can go online and find that. do you find the older you get
