“Did I hear something about Ukraine? Absolutely nothing. But! My wife we live in a marriage for over 25 years, and her mother is a very beautiful woman. And here, interestingly, none of them looks like American women.
And when 10 years ago I traveled to Odessa to present his film, I noticed that all the women remind me of the wife and her mother. And I thought, “Oh, wow. That’s where you’re from!”. I think it is my connection with Ukraine,” — shared memories of Eric Roberts.
