Taylor gave you an ultimatum- you had to choose between her and Brad. What do you think prompted Taylor's ultimatum?
If you read the commentary on the blogs, a lot of people ask how I can let Taylor speak to me the way she does. After three years of working with Taylor, I know her very well. You have to take what she's saying with a grain of salt. It's not personal. There have been many, many times over the past three years when Taylor has wanted to quit. And there are so many times when Taylor will say "Can I talk to you?" and I'll ask "Are you quitting?" I would say that every awards season, Taylor wants to quit. We are always short-handed, the pressure is so high, she takes on a lot of work, and there is no room for mistakes. No matter what mistake is made and no matter who makes it, the mistake falls on my head. I can't say to my client, I'm so sorry I don't have heel pads because my assistant didn't leave them for me. That's not my assistant's fault, that's ultimately my fault. That's unfortunately the way it works, and I think it works like that in any environment. I'm going to take the fall. During an awards season, everyone is about to explode. I take on so much work. When we have that Oscar week, technically we shouldn't be doing anything else, but that's not how it works. I had a photo shoot the day before the Oscars, and I had an unbelievable amount of stuff going on. When Taylor apologizes to Brad, it was a turning point in Brad and Taylor's relationship. I didn't tell her to apologize, that was her response. When she surrendered, I think she looked at it like, "Okay, maybe I was too hard on him." I pointed out to her that her expectations were unrealistic. I told her that I hired Brad to help her and that if she didn't take advantage of that situation, she was only hurting herself. I gave her the ultimatum that if he didn't work with us anymore, then she's a one man show again and doing all the work. I think she finally began to process that and I think that prompted her apology.
