Good To Know

Some interesting outtakes from our interview with Montiel:

"I did everything from selling peanuts on 42nd street when I was 14, to walking dogs, to unloading trucks, to whatever! I wrote -- and write -- because I have to. Because I love it. My inspiration comes from everywhere, and everyone."

"I love reality TV. I know it's not cool , but Big Brother is the greatest TV show ever! I'm in Venice, Italy now. Our film just won the Critics' Choice Award. Sting and Trudie are waiting downstairs for us to all take a Gondola to a movie premiere, and all I can think is that I can not believe WILL GOT KICKED OUT AND LOST THE POWER OF VETO!"
