On marriage:
Am I ever gonna get remarried? I don't think so. Yeah, I don't think so. Marriage is an institution of sorts. And I've done it. It's not for everybody. It's not my life's calling.

On his film 'Yardie' which is his directorial debut:
Yardie is quite a semi-famous bit of English literature about a small-time pastor who comes from Jamaica and ends up embroiled in [avenging his brother's death]. It's set in the late seventies, early eighties, a hotbed of Jamaican culture in London, but then crack cocaine arrives.
