Jeremy Irons: The movie industry is run by accountants in Hollywood and it's as simple as this; everyone has a number on their computer. They can look up Jeremy Irons and see what my last five movies have made. Say you want to make a $20m picture, which is relatively cheap. If Jeremy makes $9 million, the director makes $5 million, then you need a leading lady, and they just go through those figures - that's how casting happens. And none of my movies has made a lot of money.
