On the real message in his iconic film “Jungle Fever”:

The misdirection in “Jungle Fever” was the interracial tension between [easyazon_link identifier=”B00XB7C7DW” locale=”US” tag=”harlemworld-20″]Anabella Sciorra[/easyazon_link]and Wesley’s character. The real story, which a lot of people miss, is the effect of crack on black families. That’s what “Jungle Fever” is about.

On how he almost didn’t get to direct “Malcolm X”:

…it was announced that Norman Jewison was going to direct the film with Denzel. And I started saying to the press, “Hell, no”…I explained to Norman Jewison why I think that I was the right director for the film. And to his credit, he gracefully bowed. …Denzel was going to play Malcolm X.

On the supposed rift between him and [easyazon_link identifier=”B000XSEPZU” locale=”US” tag=”harlemworld-20″]Tyler Perry[/easyazon_link]:

Me and Tyler Perry are cool. I mean, all that stuff was squashed like 4 or 5 years ago. So, I mean, there’s really nothing to dig up. We’re cool, each doing our own thing. We got love for each other and I flew down to Atlanta…Got on a plane, Delta, went to his house, sat down. We talked, we said whatever we discuss we’ll just keep between us…And that’s what happened.
