  • Was born to a working-class Jewish mother and an upper-class Protestant father.

When his father threatened to have his mother sent to a psychiatric hospital to be treated for drug dependency, she ran away with her son. His father once tracked them down and kidnapped him. His parents divorced when he was five and his mother won custody of him. Was enrolled in the Joffrey Ballet School in New York. As a youngster, lived in a series of squatters' apartments without running water or electricity on New York City's Lower East Side while his mother was on welfare. His mother later made a living by driving a taxi and making papier maché puppets. At the age of twelve, was forced to attend an Ashram School where he studied yoga and meditation. Was forbidden from watching films in colour and grew up to love seeing silent black and white films at a local revival cinema. Made his screenwriting and directorial debut with Everything Is Illuminated in 2005. Was invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 2006. Has a lucrative side career narrating documentaries and commercials. Has three half-brothers from his mother's previous marriages and one half-brother from his father's previous marriage.

Look, it's not like we're getting paid here also with what I've got going the side with a 900 number. Look Sid, I understand that you don't like the press, I respect that but Sid, (Cotton laughs psychotically), it's Diane Sawyer! Hello!
Sidney Prescott
Look, between the movie and the book, people know the truth. There's already been enough exposure. Why would you want anymore exposure?
Cotton Weary
Well, I don't know Sid, cause maybe I fu**ing deserve a little exposure! Come Sid, I mean, you drag my name through the mud, everyone thinks I am some kind of psycho, and all I am asking is for one little fu**ing Diane Sawyer interview. Now, I don't think I am being unreasonable.
Cotton Weary
I don't know about homicide, but you've definitely got me for raising my voice in a public library.
Victor Creed/Sabretooth
I despise my humanity as much as you cherish yours. And I will come for you without mercy.

I am an animal who dreamed he was a man. But the dream is over and the beast is awake. And I will come for you, because it's my nature.

Nobody gets to kill you but me!
Victor Creed/Sabretooth
[Logan reveals his adamantium claws] .. Oooh, shiny! Tell me something, Jimmy. Do you even know how to kill me?

"What's your favorite scary movie?"
