    Steven Spielberg 'tortured' by films

    Steven Spielberg admits the process of making a moviemaker can be torturous, but believes no filmmaker can avoid it.


    Steven Spielberg experiences "torture" as a director.

    The Oscar-winning filmmaker – who has created classic movies including 'E.T.', 'Jaws' and 'Schindler's List' – admits he loves the process of creating a film, and does not believe it to be any harder or easier than people in the past who have worked in Hollywood.

    He told BANG Showbiz: "Hollywood might look like Wall Street if you read the papers. It's not like that when you are in Hollywood making movies. The creative process is just as stimulating and just as sharing. It's a very collaborative process.

    "I know it might seem that way because so much ink is spilled and media is obsessed with business and numbers and studios and that sort of thing but filmmakers don't feel that way.

    "The torture we endure is the same torture our forefathers endured in the Golden Era in Hollywood. From my perspective it's no different than I'm sure it was for the men and women I admire so much who made the earliest movies."

    With his latest movie 'War Horse' – based on the original World War I story created by Michael Morpugo and starring Jeremy Irvine and Tom Hiddleston – Steven admitted he took his duty to history very seriously and made sure he did his research before getting involved.

    He added: "Children learn from the media today. We feel responsible when we make a move that even touches on historical fact that there has to be more than a carnal truth. We did a lot of research beyond what you may perceive to be the story in 'War Horse'."
