Jacqui Ainsley Best Quotes:
“I'm not politically motivated. I used to be - passionately. I used to be very Left wing. Then I went very Right wing, and now I rest somewhere in the middle.”
“As I get more and more involved in the child's world with Rocco [his son] I'm getting interested in making a film for children.”
“I am relatively familiar with getting a good old rumping from the critics. In some cases, the critics just didn't like the film - fair cop. Others, I think, didn't understand it.”
