MD: You produced Crash  but for some reason didn't get one of the producing Oscars given out for it. Now, I remember being at your house while there was this whole argument brewing over who was going to get credit for the film and seeing this form that you were supposed to submit--
DC: The questionnaire.
MD:--yeah, this questionnaire. And after the question asking what you had done to produce the movie, you'd only written one line, and I asked you why you hadn't written an essay. And you said to me, "I know what I did to produce the movie, and the people involved know what I did to produce it, and if they don't want to acknowledge that I'm the producer of the movie then that's on them." I thought that was a wonderful attitude.
DC: You also said, "Are you out of your mind?"
MD: I did, because you'd done the work and you deserved recognition for it and also because of my sense of justice. In retrospect, do you regret taking the moral high road?
DC: Well, you've been to my house and you know where all of my awards are--nobody even sees them unless they're trying to find something behind the couch.
Matt, 36, tells this month's Empire magazine: "I honestly don't know how Brad does it. He can't walk down the street anywhere, literally anywhere.
"They're in Prague right now because Angelina's working, and he can't walk down the street.
"I went to Prague and I didn't sign an autograph for six months - and it was great! The fame side is not interesting to me at all."
